Mexico, The Best South Asian Weddings Destination

Did you know that Cancun is one of the most popular South Asian wedding destinations?

April, 2018

Think about it... The weather is beautiful year-round, the beaches are pristine, and the area is easy to travel to.

With more than 1.3 billion people, India has the second largest population with millions spread across numerous countries around the world. More than three million live in the United States, located just a stone's throw away from Mexico.

But the real challenge and possible catalyst for brides and grooms interested in hosting a South Asian wedding in Cancun - Mexico isn't so much about the actual ceremony—it’s about creating a one-of-a-kind experience, according to Fortune Magazine. That's where destination weddings come in, and Mexico has a thriving industry for North American South Asian weddings, reports Fortune.

South Asian weddings, particularly Indian weddings, have gained massive popularity in Cancun in recent years because of the region's unique accommodations, according to Travel Tom's Tom Varghese.

Specifically, Palace Resorts has become a preferred target itself for South Asian weddings, given the brand’s ability to handle a wedding of such magnitude and prestige.

Unlike other resorts in Mexico, Palace Resorts offers an in-house wedding planner with extensive experience in planning South Asian weddings and ceremonies. This provides a unique advantage compared to competitors, given that the resort is fully equipped to present an authentic event.

Palace Resorts can also accommodate more than 300 guests, and offers Barat horses, mehendi and henna artists, live music, and customizable wedding stage decor to fit a family's desires.

Even better, the resort serves up traditional Indian cuisine, thanks to an in-house Indian chef. A sample of the chef’s most-popular items includes samosas and vegetable kabobs, chicken tikka masala, cauliflower with turmeric, lemon rice and jeera rice, and colorful marzipan made with almond, walnut, and saffron.

“Having an in-house Indian chef drastically reduces the destination wedding price point and provides a competitive advantage over other all-inclusive resorts,” Varghese says.

To simplify the process, Palace offers an South Asian wedding package, which includes the ceremony and festivities, food, a honeymoon package, and other unique complements, from flowers to breakfast in bed the morning after the ceremony. The resort also provides a preview option, where couples can enjoy a free two-night stay at a Moon Palace Cancun in Mexico to see exactly how their dreamy beach weddings would come to life.
