Destination Wedding ItineraryFebruary 10, 2021
When you get engaged, your heart is overwhelmed with happiness, and your mind starts to plan. Where would you like to get married? Your first thought might be to look for a venue in your home city. However, if you look into the destination wedding option, you’ll find many advantages.
A destination wedding’s main appeal is the setting. Imagine a sunbathed beach, deep blue ocean, tall palm trees, the cool ocean breeze while walking barefoot on the beach, and so much more.
The Conrad Hotel in Punta de Mita, Mexico can offer you not only the luxurious tropical beauty of an exclusive piece of heaven on Earth but also an immersive authentic cultural experience. You and your guests will feel transported, exploring the riches of the culture of Mexico while all your wishes are taken care of.
At Conrad, we have the most experienced wedding planners, with the expertise to handle every detail of planning your wedding, so you can focus on savoring countless individual moments that will make your unique celebration memorable.
And, why limit your special day to only “one day?” Make the best of your time in Mexico by spreading the joy of your celebration over four days. This way you will have more time to spend with your loved ones and to experience the timeless tradition of Mexico’s hospitality.
It’s your day, make it grande!
- Day 1: Welcome to the Festivities
- Day 2: Let’s have fun and chill
- Day 3: The Big Day has come!
- Day 4: Until we meet again.
Day 1: Welcome to the Festivities
We recommend that the wedding couple should arrive one or two days before your guests to get acquainted with your surroundings.
This way, you can enjoy your luxurious suite and the exclusive amenities offered by Conrad Punta de Mita. Relax in oceanfront pools, savor a wealth of dining options, or immerse yourselves in a lavish spa treatment.
You’ll also have time to put together welcome bags or gifts for your wedding party during this time before everyone else arrives.
We recommend scheduling your first group event – the Welcoming Party – for the evening. This will give your wedding party and guests time to arrive at the hotel, unwind, and dress.
There are plenty of options for your Welcoming Party. You can choose a cocktail soiree with the beach as your backdrop or our rooftop terrace with awe-inspiring views. You could also have a fun theme party or sail the night away on a catamaran cruise.
Day 2: Let’s have fun and chill
The day after your Welcoming Party and before your Wedding Day, you can set the tone for relaxation and interaction with your guests.
Enjoy a fresh and nutritious breakfast together, and spend some time soaking up the sun on the beach or at one of our beachfront pools. Order poolside drinks or snacks. The staff at Conrad’s is trained to provide personal yet unobtrusive service, so take advantage, relax, and let them take care of you and your group as you enjoy the sweet vibes of this Mexican morning.
After some lounging and discovering local flavors, it’s time for the wedding couple to head to the spa. Our Huichol Culture inspired treatments will get you ready for your wedding day. From the Mara’akame body therapy to the sweet honey facial, every treatment will soothe you and revitalize you, which will help you look your best for tomorrow. Conrad is the only resort in the Riviera Nayarit or Bay of Banderas area with an onsite Temazcal (ancient sweat lodge) as part of our spa. This special ceremonial treatment is recommended for couples prior to their wedding day. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience an ancient Huichol ritual that you will not find anywhere else. Meanwhile, your guests can enjoy excursions such as horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, golf, or just taking a walk on our two-mile-long sandy beach.
This celebratory second day will end with one of the most important events within your wedding weekend – the Rehearsal Dinner. This is the time to further connect with your guests while sharing a special meal together. It’s an intimate time filled with champagne toasts and speeches by family, friends, and the soon-to-be-married loving couple. Make a night of it – but not too late – you want to be well-rested the next day.
Day 3: The Big Day has come!
“Happily ever after” begins here. You have arrived at one of the most special days in your life. You are relaxed, as our expert wedding planners took care of every single detail to make this day all about you. The only thing you have to do is to enjoy every moment to the fullest.
Whether you are celebrating your love walking down the aisle on the beachfront Hamara or Mezquite lawn, the Tukipa or Xiriki ballroom, your Big Day will be enchanting, memorable, and extraordinary. Conrad Punta de Mita’s unmatched exclusive 54,000 square foot event space will take your breath away. The sound of the ocean waves, the delicious locally inspired flavors, and the elegantly decorated venue will exceed all your expectations.
This day you can indulge freely, and unwind fully. One of the many advantages of your destination wedding weekend is that by your Big Day you have already made meaningful connections with your guests. This makes your wedding delightfully stress-free, so you can focus on being newlyweds and dance the night away.
Day 4: Until we meet again
After your joyful long night of celebrating, what better ending than to gather with your guests for a tasty ocean-view brunch. At brunch, you can have the opportunity to thank everyone who took part in celebrating your special day. Talk about the highlights of the night before, as well as the memories from the previous days, and the plan for your one-year anniversary trip back.
After everyone has gone their separate ways, and things are more mellow, it’s your opportunity to enjoy alone-time with your spouse. It’s a superb idea to book your suite for two or three more nights. Conrad Punta Mita offers endless adventure experiences like eco-tours of the surrounding scenic villages or humpback whale watching trips. Or if relaxation is more your thing, of course, you always can enjoy more sunny days and relaxing spa treatments together with your new spouse.
Although a multi-day destination wedding may seem like it requires a lot of effort to plan, rest assured that when you place yourself in the hands of our expert wedding planners, every concern will vanish. We are committed to creating weddings that inspire wonder. Your wedding is one of the most important moments in your life, so make it spectacularly unforgettable.
