The Mexico Tourism Board has launched a new campaign that will promote the countrys most romantic resorts as wedding venues.
The new Love Mexico campaign is being pushed in cities across Mexico and the United States to encourage couples to book destination weddings at the countrys resorts and hotels.
The Tourism Board, a Mexico-based government agency, is running a series of events in Dallas, New York and the Riviera Maya where resorts, wedding suppliers, wedding planners and wedding travel specialists will be able to showcase their offerings.
We were delighted with the response to this years Love Mexico events; all of the vendors and buyers that I spoke to had great feedback, explained Eduardo Chaillo, the Executive Meetings Unit Director for Mexico Tourism Board.
With its combination of natural beauty, rich culture, world-class hotels and resorts and outstanding service, Mexico is the ultimate destination for weddings, honeymoons and romantic getaways. As the destination weddings market grows and changes Mexico will continue to develop its offering.
The number of couples planning weddings abroad is on the rise and Mexico is a popular destination for engaged couples from all over the world.
Mexico weddings are chosen by many couples from the United States due to the countrys beautiful landscapes, close proximity to the U.S, reliably warm weather, and the array of resorts that offer incredible value for money.
Cabo San Lucas is one of Mexicos leading wedding destinations and the city is located at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. It boasts beautiful sandy beaches, world-class scuba diving sites and upscale hotels and resorts.
Beach weddings are a favourite for many couples and Mexico has plenty of beautiful sandy beaches that create the perfect setting for a romantic ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
Cancun is located on the Yucatan channel which separates Mexico from the Caribbean island of Cuba and it is a fantastic region for idyllic ceremonies. After weddings in Cancun, newlyweds can extend the celebrations with fun-packed honeymoons where they can enjoy water activities in the Nichupte Lagoon or explore historic Mayan archaeological sites such as Kinichna, Dzibanche and Tulum.
Mexico is also expected to become a hotspot for gay and lesbian destination weddings and according to the U.S business magazine, Forbes, this could lead to a USD9.5 billion increase to Mexicos economy each year.
