Each year, thousands of couples head to Mexico to have a destination wedding (they often stay and have their honeymoon in Mexico, too) at a seaside resort or right on the beach. Of all the destination weddings held in Mexico, most of them (over 60%) are held in the state of Quintana Roo, where Cancun and the Riviera Maya resort areas are located. To start the new year off with a bang, Palace Resorts and CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort have come up with new wedding packages for destination weddings held at their resorts.
Marriott CasaMagna has three new wedding packages to choose from; the True Love package, the Romance package, and the CasaMagna Deluxe package. The packages include the actual wedding ceremony, as well as an hour of cocktail service and a dinner reception. The CasaMagna Deluxe wedding package also includes a deejay for up to three hours. The bride & groom work with an experienced wedding planner to arrange every detail. They pick the colors they'd like for their wedding decorations, and decide on a venue for the ceremony. At the Marriott CasaMagna, guests have the option of getting married in a lovely gazebo, on the lawn, that overlooks the beach, or they can opt to have their ceremony on the hotel's beautiful, white-sand beach.
Palace Resorts has teamed up with Colin Cowie, party planner extraordinare, to create nine incredible wedding packages. Colin Cowie has planned events for major companies, like CBS and Mattel, as well as for many A-List celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Jennifer Lopez. The Colin Cowie Wedding Packages start at $1,500 USD and are available at all of the Palace Resorts, in both Mexico and the Dominican Republic, starting on March 1, 2012. Brides and grooms work directly with a Palace Resorts wedding planner to arrange the wedding of their dreams. In Cancun, couples may choose from Cancun Palace, Beach Palace, Sun Palace, Moon Palace, or Le Blanc Spa Resort.
Each all-inclusive wedding package includes different services, features, and amenities but some of the inclusions for the $4,200 USD, Sultry Sunset package (pictured above) are the ceremony, flowers, a wedding cake, the services of a minister, champagne during the ceremony, some photos, and a fireworks display, following the ceremony. Palace Resorts also offers a complimentary wedding package, which is very basic, but lovely and special, nonetheless.
