Weddings, weddings and more weddings! We simply cannot get enough of all the happy couples that say their “I Do’s” with us at Secrets Resorts! Today, we wanted to share a post from Kendall of Sex and the Suburb, who recently got married at Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun.
I have never really been the wedding-type girl. The one who grows up planning this big, elaborate fairytale wedding that would end up costing more than most people make in a year. I never had dreams of the perfect dress and the over-the-top cake, because well that’s just not me.
Part of my reluctance, or I guess more correctly my lack of caring about weddings, was because my parents aren’t married and never have been. They sealed the deal before I was born, even if it wasn’t legal. I know that isn’t the traditional way, and may seem a bit taboo to some people, but my parents are still together and happy, which is sadly more than many married couples.
So when my husband proposed – to which I said yes whole heartedly – I knew I was eventually going to have to do what I had so little desire to do, plan my wedding. At this point, a little part of me was wishing my husband-to-be would turn groomzilla and plan the whole thing; however, he couldn’t be less that guy.
So after a little procrastinating, we decided that in order for us to fully enjoy our engagement and our wedding that a small destination wedding was the right choice for us.
We ending up deciding on Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun in Mexico and I couldn’t have been happier. In my experience, destination weddings and this particular resort took all the pressure of wedding planning off. It was what I had always wanted, but I just hadn’t known it all these years. From the food and the decor, to the photographer it is one stop shopping and they accommodate any special requests you have. Say it with me – Free wedding planner.
When it came to the big day, we were able to celebrate with our family and friends without having to worry about a thing. We laughed, we cried, we partied and everyone left having a great time.
