The problem with destination wedding planning is that the meaning of the day, the spirituality and significance of it all, often gets lost amongst the stress and hurry of planning and executing what is undeniably the biggest day of most people’s lives. The solution, however, could be easier than you ever imagined, especially if you had already decided to have your destination wedding in Mexico at a high-end hotel where wedding planners are always happy to help guests execute the biggest day of their lives. Destination wedding planners can help you with all kinds of tasks, from handling the decoration, catering, and seating arrangements as well as guiding you towards some religious or symbolic ceremonies.
Religious and Spiritual Ceremonies for Destination Weddings
While many destination weddings in Mexico tend to be more secular in nature, it is not unusual for couples to want a traditionally religious ceremony for their wedding day. Whether that means finding a religious building like a church, synagogue, mosque or temple in the Mexican town where your destination wedding will take place, having a religious official from your faith conduct the ceremony or simply adding some traditional touches to your wedding, destination weddings in Mexico can adapt to the requirements of your religion.
Secular ceremonies are still on the rise, but that doesn’t mean that couples don’t wish some spirituality or symbolism involved. Destination weddings in Mexico provide great settings for many different secular and non-denominational symbolic rituals for weddings; hand-fasting, sand or water mixing, and unity candle ceremonies are most popular, but there are others to choose from.
Poets and Special Readings
In recent years it has become increasingly popular to have a ceremony in which friend and family (or even the bride and groom) read from novels, poems, or religious texts, choosing passages which have meaning for them. This is not only charming, but a great way to bring intimacy to even big weddings. Plus, your nearest and dearest will undoubtedly be delighted at being able to actively participate in the biggest day of your lives.
