Newbie - Advice on Wedding in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am engaged and working on trying to narrow down the date and location for my wedding for next year. My fiance and I would love to have the wedding in a nice beach location in Mexico that will not leave us in crazy debt. We would love for our wedding to be very classy, laid back and not too intense in regards to the planning involved.

 

Do any of you have any suggestions as to where we would consider having our wedding along some beautiful beach in Mexico? Also, the dates when the weather is just right is very important (I would hate to be caught in their storm/rainy season)?

 

If you know of any sites that are useful, please pass them along this way!

Hi Chocolat. I just got married in Cabo at the Cabo Surf hotel. For a non-all-inclusive resort in Mexico it was very reasonable and just beautiful. you can check out some photos here:

I'm a Las Caletas bride as well, and it's a great option - something different than a resort wedding if you're looking for that. There are so many great options out there - maybe you can tell us more about what you're looking for, here are some thikngs to think about ...

 

1) where all of your guests will be coming from

2) how big of a group will you have

3) All Inclusive or not

4) wedding and ceremony on teh beach, or in a gazebo, or a lawn?

5) what's your general budget

6) time of year you're looking to get married (end of June starts the rainy season in Puerto Vallarta, goes until the Fall, maybe Sept, i'd have to check)

Welcome! Coming from LA, I'd say that your most economical bet would be Cabo. There are plenty of brides that will give you A TON of information! I'm sure you'll find everything you're looking for right here.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding! We went to Riviera Maya/Cancun and stayed at Moon Palace. The beach was beautiful and the water... ahh amazing! However if you want a small resort I wouldn't recomment Moon Palace... it's huge. But the service, rooms, food, staff, everything is amazing there!

 

Good luck with the planning!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
