The intimate Esencia Estate is located on the exclusive Riviera Maya of Mexico. The area is Mexico’s top venue for destination beach weddings.
Mexico continues to be a hotspot for destination weddings. The country is increasing at an unprecedented rate of 20% per year. You ask, “what is the reason’?
Well the expert wedding planners at Esencia Estate are now offering an inside look at the top five wedding trends to watch for in 2014.
This hideaway is a favorite of supermodel, Kate Moss and the scenic venue was also the choice of TV show “Bones” star Tamara Taylor’s nuptials.
1. Mexico Destination Weddings on the Rise
The Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau has reported a 20% increase in the number of destination weddings in 2013 over 2012 in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. This location is home to the Riviera Maya and Tulum. Found on the region’s finest stretch of private beach, the area’s most luxurious, boutique hotel and top wedding venue, Esencia Estate, saw the number of weddings on site more than double over the past year. With one in four US couples now opting for a destination wedding, Mexico and the Yucatan peninsula in particular, will continue to rise in popularity as the destination of choice over the coming year.
2. Pin-spiration and the Insta Boom
In 2014, brides will look to Pinterest for inspiration for their dream day. Weddings will continue to have highly personalized, hand-made elements — from save-the-date cards to table decorations and place cards, the DIY touch is definitely here to stay. Bringing social media action to the ceremony, couples are creating personalized hashtags for guests to tag their instagram photos.
3. Non-traditional Ceremonies
Parting ways with traditions of the past, many couples are now opting for non-traditional ceremonies held outside of religious institutions. In Mexico, Mayan beach ceremonies, officiated by a Shaman and incorporating natural elements will experience a strong revival in 2014.
4. Creative, Customized Cuisine
The foodie renaissance has sparked new interest in one-of-a-kind culinary experiences that are sure to wow wedding guests. At Esencia, renowned Chef Noe Bernardo works with couples to completely customize menus and options to fulfill their foodie fantasies. From welcome Mexican style barbeques replacing more formal rehearsal dinners to delectable ceviche and taco bars, the options are endless.
5. Intimate Is Chic
Embracing the quality over quantity approach, many couples are moving away from large wedding parties in favor of smaller gatherings between 50 and 120 people. Yet while guest counts are decreasing, budgets are definitely on the rise and are only expected to increase. At the 29 room, Esencia Estate, intimacy is unparalleled with more couples than ever opting to buyout the hotel for their special day.
