When couples exchange their vows at Iberostar Hotels & Resorts in Mexico, wedding bell nerves turn into wedding bell bliss. No need for romantic duos to concern themselves with the tedious details involved in planning a stateside wedding. All the stress and worries are washed away in the crystal blue Caribbean Sea as Iberostar staff and wedding coordinators handle all the logistics for them.

Those celebrating their love with a destination wedding in Mexico can choose from a variety of Iberostar packages.

With lush gardens and calming water features, Iberostar Paraiso Lindo and Iberostar Paraiso Maya are ideal settings for romantic ceremonies. Located within the Playa Paraiso complex, the two resorts share five pools, five bars and lounges, five specialty restaurants, one buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch, a poolside snack restaurant, and “dine around” with access to all bars and restaurants at their sister hotels. The Playa Paraiso resort complex features a new Mexican wedding chapel, 18-hole P.B. Dye golf course, shopping center, world class spa and convention center.

Ceremonies range from a vow renewal Blessing Ceremony for $1,400 to a Civil Ceremony for $1,650. The Civil Ceremony in-cludes register fees/civil judge, decoration of wedding area, bride’s bouquet, groom’s bouton-niere, flower arrangement for the wedding table, wedding cake, champagne toast, ceremony music, wedding dinner, honeymoon t-shirts, basket of fruit and bottle of wine upon arrival.

Situated on more than 24 acres, Iberostar Quetzal and Iberostar Tucan are celebrated for their natural vegetation and tropical gardens. The hotels are surrounded by a lush forest with creeks and a waterfall providing a refuge for monkeys, exotic birds and other indigenous animals.

Adjacent to each other just outside Playa Del Carmen, both hotels are less than 30 minutes from the Cancun International Airport. The properties offer a Blessing Ceremony for $1,275 and a Civil Ceremony for $1,560. All accommodations are additional.

Packages are valid until December 31 and are subject to availability. All packages include tax and service charges, and are priced for groups of two to eight people. A per-person charge of $17 applies to larger groups.
