Wedding Services

  • How far in advance should I plan my destination wedding?
    Most guests start planning their wedding 9-12 months before the big day. Not only does this give you enough time to visualize your ideal celebration, it also provides the best availability at our sought-after resorts. Check out our Mexico Wedding Checklist Calendar for a full timeline to make planning easier.
  • What services does your wedding coordinator provide? Is there a fee?
    Our talented wedding planners do it all - and there's no additional fee. Weddings at Velas Resorts are all-inclusive. We'll arrange your flowers, decor, entertainment, catering, photography, and everything else. We take care of the details so that you can focus on enjoying your wedding celebration in paradise.
  • When do we meet our wedding planner?
    You will be in close contact with your Velas Resorts Wedding Planner in the months leading up to your arrival. Upon arrival, couples may establish a meeting with the Wedding Planner or will receive a letter from the Wedding Planner in their room or at the front desk specifying an appointment time and date to meet.
  • Should I contract an external wedding planner?
    An external wedding planner can help with items such as sending the invitations, managing the guest list and RSVP, helping to create the theme and style of the wedding. Everything else is included in your wedding package for exclusive experiences at our resort. Our wedding planners will help arrange musicians, flowers, decor, catering, cakes, live-streaming, drone filming, and more.
  • What types of decorations do you offer?
    We offer infinite décor - from moonlit gardens dripping with candles to beach wedding decorations in Mexico - enhanced by the sea, sand, and sky. If you can imagine it, our talented designers can bring it to life! Some of the decor we offer includes fireworks, beach beds, gazebos, centerpieces, table linens, pathways, bonfires, candles, ambient lighting, and cozy romantic areas that enhance the natural beauty of Mexico's coast.
  • What types of flowers are available?
    Choose from many types of traditional and tropical flowers with creative accents and innovative designs, including native flowers of Mexico. From flowered altars on a sunset beach to fragrant garden gazebos to elegant centerpieces, our professional flower designs add a naturally beautiful aesthetic. Dazzling flower arrangements include table centerpieces, stunning gazebos, bouquets, and boutonnieres.
  • Do the resorts offer a steaming or pressing service for a wedding dress?
    Velas Resorts offers a basic steaming service (depending on the details, size, material of the dress, etc.). However there are off-property services that can handle the steaming of the dress. Prices are determined based on the dress details.
  • Can I create my own menu?
    Of course! Your wedding menu can be customized according to your budget and taste. You'll collaborate with our wedding planners and chefs to ensure that every bite meets and exceeds your expectations. Whether you desire hot Mexican food or haute cuisine, a themed buffet or a posh plated banquet, our professional culinary teams will design a wedding feast that delights your senses. We offer personalized wedding packages with diverse global cuisines, including delicious entrees, appetizers, hors d' oeuvres, desserts, and beverages.
  • Does the resort provide the wedding cake?
    Let them eat cake! A classic white wedding cake from the Velas Collections is included in all of our wedding experiences. We also offer customizable menus with fresh, innovative international cuisine for your wedding celebration, rehearsal dinner, poolside cocktail party, or beach reception.
  • Do you provide photography and video services?

We don't just take pictures - we capture the mood and the epic romance of your wedding day with live streaming, drone filming, and professional videography.
