What is your favorite thing about a Riviera Maya Wedding?
“Our favorite thing about weddings? The groom’s face when he looks at his bride for the very first time, and how the bride’s eyes “glow” in that very instant – something that’s very hard to duplicate. We love destination weddings because they bring everyone together, family & friends, to create special memories!”
Riviera Maya Wedding difficulties…
“We think that timing is where most couples struggle. They are excited to set a date and get all their doubts responded asap, while planning a destination wedding sometimes requires to wait for accurate responses, especially when you need to quote customized items.”
Sad but proud.
“The end of the party! That’s a moment that makes us feel sad and proud at the same time, sad because the party is over; proud, because when everyone is happy and they just don’t want to leave, which means that, together, we planned a great wedding full of love!”
A favorite spontaneous moment:
“All moments in a wedding are beautiful! So it’s very hard to choose one. At such a special occasion, behind any spontaneous moment, you’ll always find love!”
Please tell us about your favorite Riviera Maya Wedding ever:
“Omg! We can’t!!! Each wedding is so special, different and unique that we really can’t decide which one is our favorite… In all this time, we have found different types of couples, always great people so in love with each other, that it’s hard for us to pick just one.”
A Personalized Riviera Maya Wedding…
“We love adding customized touches, you know… For example, the couple’s initials, their favorite colors, etc. It’s very interesting to pay attention at the details couples use to make their wedding unique; however, each wedding tells its own love story. It’s already a special one from the start, when he kneels and pops the question…”
Please give us a tip for future Riviera Maya Wedding couples!
“Work with a Wedding Planner, we have to say it! Not only because that’s what we do, but because in the last couple of years we have seen different couples struggle and over-stress about vendors, venues, timelines, budgets, guest’s questions… Planning a wedding from afar can really take a toll on your routine and daily life! A Wedding planner is someone completely devoted to making your dream come true, and we know our way around… So we make sure couples don’t have to stress out at all!”
