Rock Star Weddings

While lounging poolside, overlooking the bright blue waters of Cancun, Mexico at the Hard Rock Hotel, it is very possible you will also spot a wedding happening right on the beach! Many couples travel to the paradise location for a fun, adventurous wedding their friends and family will look back and smile upon. Celebrity wedding and event planner, Colin Cowie, designed nine exclusive and beautiful wedding collections for the all inclusive Hard Rock Hotels in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Each unique collection ranges in style and taste to suit any couples needs, and is available at an affordable price for up to 32 people. Included in all of the collections is the backdrop, cake, flowers and the ceremony. The Hard Rock Hotel and Colin Cowie collections are also very accommodating for all types of religious ceremonies. Below is a brief overview of each elegant collection, for both information and inspiration!


Compliments of Hard Rock Hotel Ceremony

The Complimentary Collection showcases the couple with simple and clean lines. The white seating and flower arrangement compliment the natural white sand and bright sunshine overhead.

Elegant Ivory Ceremony

The Elegant Ivory Collection is the definition of classic and chic. Truly focusing on the couple themselves, the varying shades of white, off-white and ivory will make anyone pop with elegant grace against the endless ocean.

Metallic Dunes

The Metallic Dunes Collection mixes the grand colors of gold, bronze and silver creating a sense of splendor and opulence. The backdrop is covered in seashells found in the surrounding area, connecting the luxurious color scheme with the utopian paradise.

Rock Chic Ceremony

The Rocker Chic Collection is both glamorous and cool. Hints of color brightly stand out against the black and white patterned seating arrangements and color theme. This collection is perfect for couples who want to step outside of the box, be daring and a little different.

White Rosette Ceremony

The White Rosette collection again leans towards the more traditional look with a white color scheme and classic all-white flower arrangements.

El Sol Ceremony

El Sol is a very unique collection, inspired by the colors of the setting sun against the ocean horizon. The dramatic colors of orange, pink, red and black glow in the golden light at sunset and tiki-torches lit along the aisle.

The Insignia Collection is inspired by the vast blue ocean. Deep hues of blues and white floral arrangements create a classic and natural look.

Purple Shimmer Ceremony

The Purple Shimmer Collection stands out amongst the others for its use of the colors purple and silver. The color purple traditionally signifies royalty and luxury, and this collection parallels those associations. Flowers and beads dangle in the backdrop capturing the shimmer of the ocean and sun.

Seaglass Ceremony

The Seaglass Collection perfectly captures the crystal blue waters and brilliant sky above. Different from the other collections, guests can be closer to the natural sand with seating pods instead of chairs (although chairs are available for an option!)
