Destination Weddings in Mexico!

Destination weddings have become increasingly popular with couples who want to combine travel with a unique and intimate ceremony.  The Hard Rock Hotels in Mexico provide spectacular accommodations for any wedding desired in the sunshine, or beautiful sunsets overlooking the ocean. Colin Cowie, celebrity wedding and event planner, designed eight beautiful wedding collections for the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Inspired by the lavish oceanside beauty and exotic jungle wildlife that exists in both of these countries; each collection offers a distinctive look that will bring out the best in any couple on their special day. We were lucky to visit two very different Hard Rock Hotel locations in Mexico; the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun and the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. Both locations are luxurious escapes to paradise; however, each location definitely emulates a different romantic atmosphere in terms of wedding locations.

Hard Rock Hotel Cancun

The Hard Rock Hotel Cancun is perfect for the couple who loves to party all day and night. Popular, upbeat music is played through loud speakers by the gorgeous pool overlooking the ocean. People of all ages hang out by the bar or play pool volleyball to the catchy tunes and party environment. The entertainment staff is always smiling and having a great time, encouraging fun, interactive games and activities with their guests, such as dancing contests by the pool. The white sand beach is open to the sea, allowing one to jump through the crystal blue waves or relax with a cocktail and a book. At night, the hotel is alive with the Smash Bar and Ipanema restaurant which transforms into a late night club, disco ball included! Allow yourself to let loose and dance the night away or hang out in the open area surrounding the Smash Bar, which includes pool tables, shuffle boards and karaoke.

Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

The Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is a vast property divided into two sections; a family friendly side and an 18 and older side. Both sides offer fun, private beaches blocked off by rocks so people can swim in saltwater lagoons or relax in the white sand. The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks, people laughing and birds flying above are the only sounds you will hear. Lovely pools also offer exceptional views of the endless ocean fading into the horizon. A water aerobics class was offered during our stay, which is a fun way to meet other guests at the hotel and get a light workout. Afterwards, the pool bar is a quick doggie-paddle away, along with a great restaurant for lunch overlooking the ocean.

Both Hard Rock Hotel locations are exciting, romantic and adventurous venues that guarantee a special, one-of-a-kind wedding experience. Each hotel with their own beautiful characteristics, showcase the lively spirit of Mexican culture and rock n’ roll history. Either destination provides great memories and golden tans!
