Dreamy Domestic Destinations: Fun in the Sun Edition 

In our Dreamy Domestic Destinations series, we highlight our favorite wedding destinations and venues across the country. In our latest edition, we’re heading to Mexico for the most stunning places to exchange vows against a sunkissed backdrop, on a sandy strand, or along a grove of palm trees.

The lovefest begins as soon as you arrive at this Los Cabos retreat, where you’ll be greeted by the staff “con el corazon,” or “hand on heart.” Rooms have private plunge pools (translation: your guests will love you), and if you’ve always imagined saying your vows on a lawn lined with palm trees while the waves softly rolling in the background, this must be the place.

Your loved ones won’t be able to RSVP fast enough when they see you’ve booked your wedding at this beachside spot in Los Cabos,  where villas overlook the epic sunsets on the Sea of Cortés. Another amazing feature? A callejoneada, the post-wedding celebratory parade that consists of your guests, live musicians, and lots of tequila.

Your options are endless at this resort: You can get married on a grassy lawn overlooking the beach, near the pool, or right on the shore. And after you exchange heartfelt vows at your ceremony, you can take it all in, toes in the sand, during a cocktail hour under twinkle lights.

The villas at this Riviera Maya retreat look like they’re floating, and your spirit will be too, the minute you arrive at this piece of paradise that’s on the lush Caribbean side of Mexico. For your ceremony, choose between the white sand beach or a tropical garden. (Pro tip: The lagoon has Insta-worthy sunset views.)

St. Regis Punta Mita

Personalization is the name of the game at this luxury stay, where you can wed outdoors on a terrace overlooking the ocean, or if you so choose, right there on the white sand beach. And don’t worry about making cuts to your guest list—the resort can accommodate up to 400 of your nearest and dearest. Another perk: The weekend of your wedding, you and your girls can get pampered at the spa while the guys take in a few rounds of golf on one of two Jack Nicklaus courses.

Four Seasons Punta Mita

If you dream it, this Pacific-facing beachside resort can make it happen. From a custom menu to a mariachi band serenading your walk down the aisle, everything here feels romantic, classic, and just, well, perfect. And if your event is on the smaller side, you can even exchange vows at “The Rock,” their cliffside venue that has the most sensational sunset views of anywhere on the property.

You can practically feel your blood pressure dropping as you arrive at this Punta Mita resort, which feels lush and beachy all at the same time. Whether your vibe is more rustic bohemian or fully traditional, there’s a venue to fit your style, from an indoor ballroom to, of course, with your toes in the sand on the beach.
