What made you decide on having a destination wedding?
We attempted to plan for a traditional wedding but costs were adding up and we didn’t want to have a long engagement just to have a big wedding for show. We decided it would be in our best interests to not start off our marriage in debt and go with an inexpensive and nontraditional option. Having the honeymoon included was a plus.
What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue?
A colleague recommended it to us after they had their destination wedding there.
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
Getting family and friends to understand why we were having a destination and how it was the best thing for us.
What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise?
Taking our wedding pictures on the beach and the biggest surprise was how great the weather was the entire time we were in Cancun and the sand wasn't hot!
How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with?
Secrets Resort’s staff was very hospitable and they never slacked in service. The food was amazing and the wedding coordinator made sure we had everything we needed.
If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her?
Go for it and do what is best for you!
Was there anything that you would change looking back?
Not a thing. Maybe use more sunblock!
