Have you considered a destination wedding? If you dream of being wed on a beach, Cabo is a beautiful and often affordable choice!
Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular as couples shun traditional churches and country homes for sunny sandy beaches. Ideal for those looking for an intimate affair with only their nearest and dearest in attendance as well as those looking to go all out and have the wedding of the decade, there are many reasons why couples opt for destination weddings.
However, choosing the right wedding location can make or break a destination wedding, so in this article, we’ll be looking at why Cabo, Mexico is the perfect place to tie the knot!
1. 300 Days of Sunshine
Cabo boasts an impressive yearly average of 300 days of sunshine per year, meaning that there’s little to no chance of your big day being spoiled by rain. Aside from peak summer, temperatures are warm but not uncomfortable, meaning no dress is off-limits for the bride. However, you may want to consider places of shelter in your wedding decor or timing your wedding to avoid the midday sun to prevent any risk of overheating or sunburn.
2. Stunning Photo Opportunities
Cabo is well-known for its stunning ocean-side vistas, with white sand, azure blue waters, and stunning natural features such as the Arch at Land’s End. This means even a photographic novice can capture stunning imagery so you can remember your special day forever.
Better still for beach weddings, while Cabo is well known for its water activities such as snorkeling and cruising, due to strong undercurrents, many of its beaches aren’t suitable for swimming. This means that when it comes to photos with the ocean as your backdrop, you usually won’t have to worry about cropping out other tourists, and will be able to create the stunning pictures your big day deserves.
3. An Affordable Destination
Cabo is actually one of the most affordable destination weddings for those in the USA. Cabo is only a 2 and a half hour flight from LA, meaning that you may be able to invite more guests than expected on even the tightest of budgets. LAX is also a key hub for tourists further afield and is a key entry-point for Australians, for example, which means that Cabo as a wedding destination is open to those who live further away, too!
Once the flights are booked, you’ll also be happy to discover there are a whole host of competitive wedding and accommodation packages on offer in Cabo, including stays at green eco-friendly hotels for the conscientious bride or groom. There are also many villas available to rent in Cabo, meaning you and your guests can stay affordably under one roof.
Essentially, Cabo’s affordability means that when you arrive you can consider treats for you and your new spouse and even your guests too, such as a memorable and romantic sunset cruise to finish off your special day.
4. Amazing Service!
Cabo is well-known for having some of the most friendly and helpful residents around, and when it comes to your wedding it’s no different! Many hotels are able to offer wedding packages that mean you need to do nothing more than book their services. A great example is the Hotel El Ganzo, whose friendly and dedicated staff are more than happy to help you as little or as much as you want, and are able to cater, decorate, and hire photographers, and even provide a DJ should you wish.
The attitude in Cabo is also very laid back, so even if you’re the most nervous groom or giddy bride, you’re sure to feel much more relaxed and at ease in the hours or days leading up to your nuptials.
5. Honeymoon too!
One of the best things about a destination wedding is that you’re often already at your honeymoon location too, meaning no need for more travel. Instead, you get to kick back and spend some quality time together as a newly married couple right away.
Cabo is an excellent destination for honeymooners, with many making the destination their honeymoon destination even if it’s not their wedding location. There is so much to do in Cabo that you’ll never be bored! We’ve already mentioned sunset cruises, but how about swimming on Lover’s Beach, taking a snorkeling trip out to the Arch at Land’s End, exploring downtown Cabo, going golfing, or taking a romantic beach horseback ride?
Probably the best way to make your honeymoon in Cabo the most memorable is to do what Cabo is best known for and go on a whale-watching cruise. What better way to remember the precious days that follow your wedding that by witnessing the breathtaking once-in-a-lifetime sights of the majestic titans of the ocean?
When it comes to destination weddings — and honeymoons too — Cabo really has a lot to offer! It’s cheaper than many other destinations, easy to fly to, picturesque, stress-free, and is sure to offer you the wedding you’ve always dreamed of!
