Excellent Venues Who are Well-versed in South Asian Destination Weddings

Cancun boasts many options for all-inclusive resorts and is known as an excellent place for destination weddings. Whether you want a small, elegant and simple wedding or a grand and luxurious one, you’ll find a resort to fit that vision as well as your budget. But the best part? Since Cancun has become so popular among South Asian brides, you’ll find many resorts that are well-versed in South Asian wedding customs.

Top-rated Vendors Who Know South Asian Customs

Another reason to have your wedding in Cancun is that the vendors you’ll find there are excellent. It’s easy to find a great florist or makeup artist. But finding one that specializes in South Asian weddings that truly has mastered their craft isn’t as tough to find. You’ll find vendors who have done plenty of shaadis so they not only will know what works for your wedding but will keep you informed of the top most recent trends when it comes to your makeup, decorations, flowers, mehndi and more.

Entertainment Options for Your Guests are Unlimited

The all-inclusive resorts alone will offer a large amount of entertainment for your guests but for those who want to venture off the property, they won’t be disappointed by all there is to see and do. They can take a tour of the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. They can visit the museums dedicated to the culture of the people of Mexico. If they love adventure, they can try kayaking, scuba diving, or a swim in one of the many cenotes (underground swimming areas) there. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t also mention the array of shopping options.


Weddings in Cancun typically tend to be more affordable than a traditional one done at home. Since there are hundreds of all-inclusive resorts to choose from in Cancun, you’ll easily find one that can fit your budget and give the experience you’ve always wanted for your wedding.


Most major cities in the U.S. offer direct flights to Cancun so it’ll end up being more affordable for your guests and it’s easier to find flights to and from there. This also means that your guests will be able to get there sooner and enjoy the sun, sand and beaches.

Outstanding South Asian Food

We all know that food is one of the most important parts of any good South Asian wedding and guests will remember it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that the resorts there do offer authentic South Asian cuisine that is overseen by South Asian chefs. And if you’d like to incorporate some of the local Mexican dishes into parts of your wedding celebrations, you’ll love the gourmet options you’ll find. Wine and alcohol selection are also top-notch there and you will certainly want to save room when it comes to dessert.

The Best Beaches

Couples who choose to have their weddings in Cancun do so because the beaches there are known world-wide as being some of the best you’ll find. And when you have a destination wedding there, they will serve as the perfect backdrop for your pictures which means your wedding album will be stunning. The blue skies, soft white clouds, rolling waves, and golden sand create the perfect scenery!
