GIVING BACK

The act of giving back to a disadvantaged community in

the destination you marry in has seen a huge surge over

the last year. In lieu of gifts, couples ask for donations to

a charity or school and pre-arrange a visit to drop off the

donations. It not only gives the couple and their guests

a good feeling about what they have done, but more

importantly, it is helping out those in need.

UNPLUGGED

At the entrance to the ceremony, place your cell phone in the basket provided,

that is what more and more couples are asking their guests to do. It’s not only

annoying to see guests with arms in the air taking pics or video, it can also spoil

the wedding pics being taken by a professional photographer, especially during

your first dance as a married couple.

S’MORES BEACH PARTY

This is a perfect relaxing activity for

your guests - a quiet night on the beach

before the wedding or perhaps after

the reception enjoying a “s’mores bar.”

The resort will set up a bar in a private

area on the beach complete with all you

need including a fire pit to roast your

marshmallows. A can’t miss – everyone

loves s’mores!

THEMED WEDDINGS

Couples are going all out in ways to make their destination wedding

unique with themed weddings. With creative décor and themed attire,

you can marry your “Superman” with a comic hero theme or medieval

style with a “Game of Thrones” wedding. Why not say your vows on

your greatest day with “The Greatest Showman?”

CULTURAL EXPERIENCES

Cultural-inspired weddings

seem to be on the rise,

especially in Mexico where

authentic Mayan weddings

are gaining popularity and

giving couples that unique

experience they all hunger

for. The ceremony includes

all the local customs of

the Mayan day including

traditional chanting,

drumming and dancing and

being married by a Shaman.

This experience is truly

relaxing and spiritual.
