Destination Weddings are a very hot trend right now. They are really affordable and a great way to have a “family reunion” and a wedding at the same time. With a Destination Wedding, instead of spending just a few hours with loved ones, it gives you plenty of time to reconnect in resort. Plus, with the spa services, restaurants, and entertainment at the hotel, it gives you quality time to spend with your bridal party and loved ones right within the complex.
If you are thinking of a Destination Wedding, just like home, there are many options to choose from. On my recent trip to Now Jade Riviera Cancun, I saw 3 of these events.
The day before the big event you would see the bride and girls at the beach and at the nightclub and you may see the guys at the pool bar, going golfing or out snorkeling at the hotel. Then the day of the wedding, the girls would spend the day at the spa — right at the resort — getting their nails and hair done. They were all having so much fun.
I saw 3 different weddings at Now Jade over the week. They each had 3 different locations for the wedding ceremony and 3 different locations of the reception.
The first wedding I saw was right in the main courtyard of the hotel. It was in the lush green gardens with the blue Caribbean Sea in the background. Then they had the reception at “Spices” in a private section (the restaurant was closed).
The second wedding was right on the beach. They then moved to the beach bar for cocktails and then inside a beautiful private room, surrounded on all 4 sides by glass for the reception. They could gaze out to the stars all night long.
The third wedding was on a hotel overlook right over the beach, right at sunset. It was stunning. The reception was right next to the ceremony.
Just like each person has their own personal taste, you can put your personal touch on your Destination Wedding. Check out the album on Facebook to see the photos that I took of the various locations.
