Many of us dream about a picture perfect wedding with close friends and family away from the buzz of everyday life. Many of the Caribbean and Mexico resorts have perfected the art of planning, executing and delivering perfect South Asian Weddings (Sikh, Muslim, with all inclusions of customary rituals, religious ceremonies, weeklong events (Mehendi, Sangeet, wedding ceremony and reception), and most importantly the flavours of cuisine from India or Persia along with the traditional music.
The beauty of a South Asian destination wedding is you can now buy into a pre-bundled wedding package that caters to meet the needs of South Asian couples. Many hotel chains mainly the Palace Resorts (Moon Palace), Barceló hotels (Barceló Maya Grand resort), AM resorts (NOW and Dreams resorts), Playa resorts (Panama Jack and Hyatt resorts), Majestic hotels, Hard Rock hotels and Planet Hollywood have performed multiple South Asian weddings with wonderful feedback from couples.
Based on the couple’s budget the bundles range from complimentary to 4500USD or higher. The couple has the flexibility to pick the wedding venue, décor, and menu, decorated horse for the groom and a carriage for the bride. Really, the couple just need to ask for the inclusion and the local vendors are ready to deliver. In Mexico the resorts also offer contacts of a Sikh priest or the Pandit performing the Hindu ceremony. Most couples bring their own priest, makeup artist, DJ and photographer. The resorts also have all options at the local level and these can be added to the wedding package bundle at an extra cost.
So the process to book a South Asian wedding has been simplified with couples selecting the destination they want to get married at, the time of year, hotel of choice and average travel package budget per person. Working with an experienced Destination Wedding agent can take the stress off the couple’s mind as the agent will work to get the wedding contract set up with the resort of couple’s choice and also negotiate group rates with the local tour operators for the couple’s friends and family. Once the wedding date is booked with the resort the couple can work through their travel agent or a wedding planner or their dedicated wedding specialist at the resort. Most hotels offer the couple a familiarization trip to the destination so the couple can meet with their personal wedding coordinator and select the venues for their events at the resort. A contract is set up between the hotel and the couple for the wedding package that includes all their mutually discussed options. A contract is set up with the travel agent for the travel package bookings for their group.
