Mayan Bonding

You are already heading down to Mexico to hold your dream wedding, so why not have a slightly different event? You can pick a unique ceremony style by having a Mayan Bonding at the beach or at Mayan ruins. A symbolic Mayan ceremony is carried out to unite you, and your SO, and a Mayan glyph representing your joining in marriage is gifted to you. It’s a bit off the charts but totally worth it if you want something absolutely unique.

Although many brides-to-be wish for a big, grand party on their big day, others wish for a more intimate celebration. In this case, a terrace wedding is an excellent idea!

There are incredible settings for a wedding in various resorts in Cancun, such as gorgeous colonial constructions within the hotels. With medium hosting capacities, most of these Casonas are a flawless choice for evening affairs. You can ask for a small dance floor in the middle of the patio to dance with your new spouse. Be assured that this will make great mementos! This is an excellent alternative for a perfect and classy wedding day.

A Unique Sunrise

A ceremony at sunrise is uncommon but can be a golden opportunity to rejoice in an exceptional moment to say I do. Although this idea may seem unusual, it makes for an absolutely priceless and unparalleled wedding.

Going back to wedding planning and summer wedding ideas, here’s a quick list of tips to get your mind creating new ideas!

  • Frozen drinks. Summer in Cancun can get a bit hot. So, giving your guests a delicious Negroni Pop or a refreshing Gin and Tonic Sorbet can be enchantingly appropriate (and creative!).
  • Escort cards. These are great and very customizable. Instead of using place cards, you can choose a more casual option and use escort cards that you can personalize and match to your liking to your wedding’s theme and color palette.
  • Ice cream. Who doesn’t love this creamy treat? Instead of having a candy table, you could create a fabulous table of cooling sweets in different flavors. You can go from the classics like vanilla and strawberry to decadent delicacies like honey pistachio and lemon thyme; all perfect for enjoying at a cool terrace lounge area.
  • Wedding cakes. This is a whole blog-worthy topic by itself. Wedding cakes can make or break an entire tradition on your wedding day: The cake cutting by the newlyweds. Whether you are going for a wedding-cutting celebration or just planning to give a scrumptious piece of cake to your guests, make sure your cake is up to standard. Not only does it have to be to your palate’s liking but also visually appealing. Remember, love starts with what you see!

After this read, you should have quite a few summer wedding ideas to keep in mind. Remember that your big day doesn’t have to be all tradition. You can add a few details outside the box and make your wedding day completely astonishing and unique! Remember that the perfect wedding starts by choosing an ideal wedding venue that will take your breath away; then, everything will come naturally.
