When planning a destination wedding, many couples want something different, unique and memorable, which is why Mexico is one of the top hot spots to get married. Scenic sandy beaches, vibrant culture and decadent cuisine are just a few reasons why couples say “I do” in Mexico. The best part is that many Mexican resorts can accommodate whatever your dream wedding may be: whether it’s a romantic, intimate ceremony on the beach or a full fiesta tucked away in a lush garden.
Are you completely sold but not sure where to start? Here are some of our favorite resorts you should consider for your upcoming nuptials.
