Destination Weddings to Savor

It’s estimated that one in four couples now choose a destination wedding to tie the knot, and the trend is quickly moving into the mainstream as couples are now finding it easier than ever to create their dream event abroad.

Couples wanting to break away from the ordinary wedding in search of peace, relaxation and romance will absolutely love having their wedding at an all-inclusive resort. These resorts offer luxe accommodations just steps from the beach, superb pools, 24-hour room service, unlimited fine dining, cocktails and much more for one set price. Special wedding packages are often an additional cost, but remain vastly cheaper than having your wedding back home.

Over the last few years, food has become an essential ingredient in the overall all-inclusive wedding experience. You can now enjoy gourmet dining at its very finest at these resorts without spending anything extra – and your wedding guests will forever remember your big day.

At Excellence Playa Mujeres in Mexico, you and your guests will enjoy a setting that is as stunning as it is exclusive. Situated on a two-mile stretch of powdery white sand just moments from the nightlife of Cancun and the convenience Cancun International Airport, you’ll experience a dramatic setting of an all-inclusive oasis, set along an untouched peninsula between the Caribbean and wetlands preserve. This adults-only retreat sits near an inland marina and a spectacular Greg Norman signature golf course. The world-class Miilé Spa will take your breath away — and your cares. And the resort’s all-inclusive activities, on land and sea, will see to it that no one in your party is ever bored.

For exceptional dining, Excellence Playa Mujeres has ten international restaurants that will delight you with gourmet cuisine. And when it comes to healthy eating, prepare for a culinary adventure with creative choices. Breakfast and lunch buffets feature separate vegetarian zones. And at dinner, every restaurant offers a selection of dishes for vegetarians as well as guests seeking gluten-free or lactose-free options. The food is all gourmet and all included. Even snacks and 24-hour-room service, if you choose. For the ultimate in flexibility, meal reservations are never required

The five-star Barceló Bávaro Palace in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is another fantastic option to consider for your destination wedding as this beautiful resort is set beside one of the ten most stunning beaches in the world.

This is a truly tropical resort designed specifically for people who love constant sunshine, the gentle sound of the Caribbean breeze whispering in the palm trees, and beautiful crystal-clear waters with a coral reef – oh, and unbelievably great food! The variety of food options at Barceló Bávaro Palace is one of the best in the country and allows guests to enjoy themselves and experience unique culinary adventures by sampling Dominican flavors or savoring international specialties at one of its 11 restaurants. These restaurants will transport you to different corners of the globe, from the minimalist tradition of Japanese cooking to the passionate flavors of Mexico. You can experience Spanish or Italian cuisine, the fun and festive atmosphere of a steak house and the unique flavors of seafood, not to mention the exquisite taste of Dominican food.

The only thing Barceló Bávaro Palace guests need to think about is waking up in an idyllic place and choosing between the most pleasant form of relaxation or an exciting range of activities – such snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and much more!.
