Destination Indian Weddings have become extremely popular after the two year Covid-19 lockdown. The trend to have a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas with close family and friends has been especially popular. Cabo San Lucas is a perfect destination wedding spot for the following reasons:
Lettie and Herman always loved visiting Los Cabos to get away from rainy Washington, where Herman runs a blueberry farm. Yes, Herman is a blueberry farmer and I was so thrilled to meet someone doing such a cool occupation. With the help of the South Asian wedding planner, Denise Lillie of Denise Lillie Engagements, they chose to have their Punjabi Sikh wedding at a Cabo wedding venue called Paradisus Los Cabos. This Los Cabo hotel is an all-inclusive resort that is perfect for Indian weddings in Mexico.
I would suggest choosing months that are NOT the peak tourist months for a Cabo wedding in Mexico. These months are typically in January and February.
Trust me, if you are planning an Indian wedding in Cabo all inclusive resorts such as Paradisus Los Cabos, pick a month where you will have the resort all to yourself.
Avoid spring break month which is typically March and/or April if you want a chill destination wedding venue. Lettie and Herman planned their Cabo San Lucas wedding in May. The evenings were cool and during the day it was quiet warm. If you choose to have a Cabo wedding in May through September, choose Cabo wedding venues that have various event spaces that are in open shade. Paradisus Los Cabos has two spaces that are open air but covered such as the Gabi Sky Lounge and Ginger Terrace.
A lot of wedding couples have a hard time deciding whether to choose Cabo wedding vs. Cancun wedding. It boils down to what type of vibe you are going for. Couples that want a chill vibe usually choose Cabo San Lucas, where as, couples wanted a party wedding vibe plan a Cancun wedding. Cabo weddings are generally more expensive than Cancun destination weddings.
Destination weddings in Mexico are generally considered to be cheaper than having a wedding in the United States but it depends on the time of year, the wedding size, and the quality of the hotel or resort you choose. Yes, the wedding expenses can increase if you do not have a budget planned out to help you control the wedding finances. I would highly suggest you hire a full service destination wedding planner that has experience with South Asian weddings. Lettie and Herman planned their wedding with Denise Lillie Engagements, an award winning South Asian wedding planner who loves planning Mexico destination weddings.
The short answer is: YES! Unless you a doing a wedding elopement in Mexico with just you and your fiancé, a destination wedding planner is a MUST. Here is a list of roles that the destination wedding planner will help handle:
