So you’re planning your Cabo wedding and you’ve come to realize that dream wedding is standardized and prepackaged. Not what you wanted? Consider the following fun and unique ideas to give your wedding the romantic originality you seek.
Married at Sea
Instead of saying your “I Do’s underneath a canopy on the beach or in a Mexican church consider chartering a yacht and having your ceremony on board. Most yachts can fit up to fifty people so you can fit your whole wedding party. And many yachts are large enough to have the reception on as well. What could be more romantic than dancing your first dance aboard a ship with the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea as your backdrop?
Rent a Villa
Consider renting villas away from the touristy area of Cabo. Villas are a great way to save money because you pay for the space, not for the individual person. You’re guests will find it less expensive and more personal staying in a home rather than a hotel. And often these villas come with kitchens, Jacuzzis, balconies, entertainment systems and sometimes even private pools. And for the newlyweds, consider renting a private villa but the ocean with a romantic view. Inquire about private chefs and masseurs to make your Cabo wedding the most memorable event ever.
Traditional Mexican Wedding
Just because you’re getting married in Cabo doesn’t mean you have to get married on the beach. Consider having a wedding in a small Spanish church (these are prominent in Baja wine country). Many priests speak both English and Spanish so you can have your ceremony in whatever language you prefer. For your reception, consider hiring Mexican dancer or a Mariachi band to perform. It will give your wedding a touch of uniqueness and while blending the cultural heritage of your location.
Honeymoon in Wine Country
After the ceremony is over and your guests have gone, you’re finally ready to begin your long, relaxing honeymoon. But you don’t have to stick with beaches and water sports the whole time. Rent a car and drive up to Baja wine country. They have some of the best Mexican wines around because of the richness of the soil and you can schedule private tours and tastings. There are also many small hotels and bed and breakfasts located on or by the vineyards. So consider spending a few nights away from the tourism and enjoy the traditional Spanish architecture, Mexican heritage and wine and the hospitality of a romantic bed and breakfast.
