A Detailed and Personalized Secrets Moxché Weekend Long Wedding

We didn’t have a specific vision for our wedding, which was a blessing. We wanted a weekend-long celebration that reflected us and our relationship. Given our love for hosting and attention to detail, we opted for an airy, timeless, yet detailed affair. Personalizing every aspect, from stationery to color schemes, was a joy. Our weekend included a rehearsal dinner, a welcome party, and our special day. We infused elements of the location and our personalities into every detail, from fun facts on napkins to signature margarita drinks. Our wedding day, with its neutral palette and soft textures, was brought to life with my favorite flowers tulips, adding a special touch to the occasion.

Stumbling Upon Their Venue During a Vacation in Mexico

When we were deciding where to have our wedding, we thought Mexico would be a great choice. It was an easy decision since we love Mexican food and tequila. We wanted our wedding weekend to be easy for our guests and us, so we chose Playa del Carmen because it has a good airport and lots of venues to choose from. We hadn’t heard of Secrets Moxché before, but we stumbled upon it on our last day in Playa del Carmen and fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. The rooftop, overlooking the ocean, sealed the deal for us. The hotel is beautiful, from the lobby to the rooms, and we knew it would be the perfect place to host our family and friends and have the timeless wedding we wanted.

Tips for a Stress-Free Wedding Planning Journey

Here’s some advice for couples planning their wedding: Enjoy every moment. Planning should be fun, not stressful, and it flies by quickly. A friend once told me that the engagement period is the shortest phase of a relationship, and it’s true. So, make the most of it. Understand that there will always be things you can’t control, but in the end, you’ll realize how perfect the day was. Work together as a team when planning. Each of you has strengths, so use them! Your wedding day is about the two of you, so the more you both contribute, the more satisfaction you’ll feel when it all comes together. Don’t just follow trends because they’re popular. Whether you prefer something traditional or more unique, go for it. Your wedding is about celebrating your love with your loved ones while reflecting on who you indeed are.

How Attention to Detail and Personal Touches Made Their Secrets Moxché Weekend Long Wedding Special

Thanks to the stationary and design vibes, our wedding had a consistent and unified look and feel throughout the weekend. It was easy for everyone to recognize it was our wedding because of the unique touches we incorporated everywhere. From the personalized treats in the welcome bags to the traditional coasters and fun facts in the ceremony program, attention to detail was crucial for us, and we’re thrilled it showed throughout the weekend. We aimed for our wedding to reflect who we are and the love and respect we share. It was important to us to take care of our guests and ensure they felt appreciated for making the trip to celebrate with us. Our wedding wouldn’t have been as magical without the support of our family, friends, and vendors. We placed a high priority on surrounding ourselves with the best company and working with top-notch vendors.

Thoughtful Welcome Bags Filled with Treats and Hidden Surprises

One of my favorite parts of the wedding planning was preparing the welcome bags for our guests. I was so excited to share them! I personally designed the tags with our M|M logo and the newspaper that was tucked inside. The newspaper included all the weekend events, a fun crossword about us, local attractions, and useful Spanish phrases for the weekend. We included plantain chips and chili mangoes as “his and hers” snacks and delicious popcorn. Each bag also contained coasters made of Talavera ceramic. On the bottom, it said, “Made in Mexico, Marc & Moni 2023.” We didn’t want to overload the favors with our names and wedding dates, so we hid it under the coasters. Every item in the bag was chosen with care and meaning, and we were thrilled that our guests loved them.
