This might sound crazy…but planning a gorgeous destination wedding might be easier than you think. The team behind today’s inspiration has brought so much beauty to this Mexican beach; and also demonstrated the simplicity of an unforgettable destination wedding. The key is starting with a remarkable foundation. And what’s more remarkable than a sparkling beachfront?
Read on for some stunning details and 4 tips for an unforgettable destination wedding in Mexico! Let’s have a look at the photos from the oh-so-talented Photo by Julieta:
Tip 1: Choose the destination city
With so many stunning resorts in Mexico, it can be difficult to narrow down your destination wedding city. But, with destination ‘I dos,’ comes serious thoughts on guest efficiency. Be mindful of nearby airports, transportation + accessibility for your guests. Cabo San Lucas is a resort city in Mexico with its own international airport, making it a wonderful option for a rad celebration!
Choosing a city with an emphasis on history + architecture is always a good idea. Think about all the amazing photo ops!
Tip 2: Choose a *beachfront* wedding venue in Mexico
Why plan a destination wedding in Mexico without taking advantage of a beautiful beachfront property? With fresh ocean breezes and infinite azure tones of the Sea, Mar del Cabo resort is an idyllic setting. Ensure your guests are not only blown away by the beach views, but also their lodging accommodations.

Tip 3: Think about color + texture
What’s wonderful about a destination or beachfront wedding is the simplicity of decor. With actual ocean views as your ceremony backdrop and guests’ toes in the warm sand, you don’t have to do much to create an unforgettable day. The importance of planning the design is to think of a few key elements that you want incorporated. Two great places to start are in color + texture.
The neutral boho florals by Pina Hernandez paint the sweetest picture, and perfectly frame the beachy bride + groom. We love the pops of pink + mustard, along with the dried elements in these designs.
The finish of this ceremony structure resembles driftwood; and many colors in these floral designs are pulled from palettes in ocean front foliage. Think of the colors and textures that you want to stand out in your decor. The draped gauze + macrame perfectly soften this entire setup, giving it a lovely boho finish!
There’s so many neat colors going on in these whimsical, dried designs! We love the color of sea urchin in there, and the pops of hot pink.
Tip 4: Create an intimate destination wedding reception
Destination weddings typically end up with smaller guest counts. It’s smart to take advantage of this intimacy by offering cozy, styled nooks for guests to settle into. There’s nothing more charming than a reception right on the beachfront.
This casual reception style is very stylish + inviting. With furniture from Warehouse Rentals, the dinner set up allows for cozy, conversation. Not to mention the incorporation of macrame + fringe which carries through that lovely bohemian vibe!
Throw pillows, poufs + soft candlelight are the key ingredients to a memorable wedding reception. Guests can chat very casually, with the ocean waves as the evening’s musical entertainment.
No other reception meal style for this boho dinner than shared family-style. Think of your favorite ways to dine as you plan your destination wedding dinner. Local fare + recipes from the neighboring cities can breathe so much life to your wedding meal! We love the familial feel of this tablescape.
Yes! This is exactly what we’d imagine. Wedding guests having an amazing time, under the stars with their feet in the sand. Plus, some sweet, newlywed whispers :)
