Some brides and grooms think that preparations for a destination wedding are stressful and complicated. Fortunately, arranging a wedding outside the country is basically the same as getting married locally. Also thanks to competitive pricing, destination weddings have become more affordable and doable.
If you’re thinking about getting married soon, you’re in the right place because we have some tips on what to look for in a destination wedding venue.
One of the first considerations should be accessibility. Most of your guests will be flying in or driving to the country. Guests arriving in Los Cabos for the first time will find it scary to be in a foreign country. However, having a wedding venue that is easily accessible via private car and public transport will be comforted. If that is a goal, then an Esperanza Cabo wedding might be in order.
If they are driving, directions to the resort should be clear and easy to follow. Driving in a different country is already nerve wracking and you don’t want your guests to get lost.
Your guests might also want to explore nearby areas and tourist spots and having an accessible venue will make sightseeing easy and enjoyable for them.
What is the style or theme of your wedding? Not all venues can cater to the wedding of your dreams. For example, do you prefer a laid-back but luxurious wedding? The Cape Cabo wedding is the perfect destination for both. Guests will enjoy panoramic views of the ocean while basking in the warm sun.
Other couples will also have different preferences like a country club style wedding and reception or a more rustic country theme. Taking the style of the venue into consideration because some resorts in Los Cabos cannot offer the same ambiance that you have in mind or they cannot cater to the theme you envisioned.
Before booking a wedding venue, check to see their capacity. Some couples like small weddings while others prefer grand celebrations with hundreds of people attending. Unfortunately, not all venues can accommodate large numbers.
This is very obvious. It can be impossible to fit 300 people in a venue that’s designed only for 150. The opposite is equally problematic. Many couples make the mistake of booking a big venue for a small wedding. They end up spending more money to make the space look intimate.
Make sure that the venue can comfortably accommodate all your guests without it being too big or too small for the event.
One of the most important things you need to discuss with your significant other and wedding planner is the budget. Knowing how much you can spend can make planning easier because it affects not only the venue you book but also the vendors you need to hire.
Our pro tip is to seek a reputable wedding planner who works in Los Cabos. They will be very knowledgeable and will be able to recommend the most ideal venues for your dream wedding. Best of all, they can get you in touch with vendors and even discounts and wedding packages.
When it comes to destination weddings in Los Cabos, knowing when the peak season is can increase your chances of snagging not only your dream venue but also the date.
In Los Cabos, weddings are at peak between April to June and October to December. Saturdays are by far the most popular day to get married.
One of the best ways to snag the venue and ideal date is to plan early. If you intend to get married during peak season, you need to plan and book in advance because competition between other couples will be fierce.
You should also consider being flexible especially if you want to marry during peak season. For example, your dream venue could be fully booked on a Saturday but available on a Friday or Sunday.
Wedding decisions can be hard to make. Being prepared by doing research, talking to the experts and staying calm will help you make it easier for you to make choices regarding your wedding.
Always remember that the world is at your fingertips. Destination weddings in Los Cabos, Bali or Bora Bora are now possible.
