Pristine beaches. Scuba diving in crystal clear water. Over 340 days of sunshine a year. No, I’m not talking about Florida, although we do have many of those things here, too. I’m talking about a wedding in Cabo!
Cabo is the perfect destination if you’re looking for pristine beaches and luxury accommodations for parties of any size.
Get to know Cabo
Located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico, Cabo is a few hours away from many major US cities by plane. It is located in another country, so a passport is required to travel there.
There are so many resorts, hotel, and private residence choices in Cabo, and plenty of activities from water sports and hiking to luxury shopping, dining, and spa services.
And with over 340 days of sun a year, there really isn’t a reason not to get married here! For most of the year, the weather is somewhere around lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s and 90s. Cabo is also less humid than other places in Mexico and the Caribbean.
What to consider when planning your wedding in Cabo
Here are a few questions to ask yourself when you begin thinking about a wedding in Cabo:
- What’s your budget for your wedding in Cabo?
- What’s your style? Are you looking for a beach wedding or a particular resort style?
- What is your guest count?
- Do your guests have the ability/budget to travel for a wedding in Cabo?
How much does a Cabo wedding cost?
A Cabo wedding can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $180,000 making it the perfect location for a luxury destination wedding. If you are eloping or have a very small guest count, your wedding in Cabo may cost even less.
If you’re working with a tight budget, prioritize your vendors before you begin booking. If videography and photography are a priority for you, book those vendors immediately after you find a venue. If your priority is hiring a fantastic wedding planner, they should be your first hire after you’ve found a venue.
