Another hot destination is Mexico, with Moore fielding more and more requests for Los Cabos in particular.
“There are a plethora of new resorts that have sprung up in Cabo, many of them higher end luxury properties that our couples love,” she notes.
Meanwhile Griffiths, who specializes mostly in Mexico points out that it’s the price point that continues to lure her clients.
“I do also often start with brides who want places such as St. Lucia, Aruba, the islands, but it doesn’t take long to narrow down guests’ budgets and realize these aren’t ideal for many budgets,” she says.
Although there have been concerns about sargassum in Mexico over the past few years, Moore says Costa Mujeres, located approx. 30 minutes north of the Cancun airport, has emerged as one of the best places to wed.
“Stunning white sand, seaweed free beaches, beautiful tranquil surroundings and a whole array of new five-star properties has created quite the buzz for destination wedding travel these days,” she says. “I’ve site-inspected many of them over the past year and have really been wowed. Wonderful spa amenities open to all guests, great live entertainment, butler services on many accommodations levels, resorts are really going above and beyond now to attract wedding groups.”
