–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – CONTEXTO LATINO)–A series of preparations and tiny details go into planning a wedding and the majority of couples — as well as their parents — end up with a lot of stress. That’s the reason why more and more couples are looking into fresh options for that special day.
Before a decision is taken, it’s important to choose the scope of the event. Many couples opt for something simple with a small wedding party or for a very private wedding with only family members present. Others want a huge reception with hundreds of guests. Some couples choose to exchange their vows in an untraditional manner. There are so many options for them, because there are really no limits to how it can be done. They can create a dream wedding with just a little imagination.
The tourism industry has exotic locations available for couples to exchange their vows. Several hotel chains have created wedding packages that can include everything from a wedding right on the beach, to a wedding under the stars.
Mexico, the Caribbean and South America have become popular wedding destinations. Sol Melia, the world’s largest hotel chain known for its five-star service, has created a series of romantic and exciting wedding packages for 2005 at some of their most exotic locations.
“We’re very proud to offer couples a different and unforgettable experience through our new wedding packages”, said Ron Roy, Marketing Vice President for Sol Melia.
Couples can sit back and let a Sol Melia wedding coordinator take care of everything. They have a variety of packages to choose from that can meet any budget.
For example, couples can get married for free at Mexico’s Melia Puerto Vallarta resort when five guests make a five-night reservation. The couple will receive free personalized service from the resort’s wedding coordinator. The package includes a notary and marriage certificate, fruit basket, a wine bottle and a private dinner for the bride and groom the night before their wedding. It also comes with a bridal bouquet, a boutonniere for the groom, two champagne bottles for toasting, a wedding cake for 25 people, and a 5×7 photo enlargement. The next day, the couple will receive breakfast in bed; a $25 wedding gift and checkout will be extended several hours past noon. The package is available at Sol Melia hotels in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Peru and Brazil.
Sol Melia has put together the following tips to consider before making a final decision:
* If’ the bride or groom has never been married, the only thing that he or she needs is a valid passport for the length of stay and a tourist card (one can be obtained through the travel agent or at the corresponding consulate)
* If the bride or the groom has been married before, he or she needs to speak with their destination’s consulate.
* A Sol Melia Wedding Coordinator can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 877-734-4606.
* When traveling, couples should bring original documents and everything should coincide with the information that appears on their passports.
Sum Once the wedding is over, a marriage certificate will be prepared ASAP and sent via mail to the couple’s home. The wedding will be made legal by their destination’s embassy.
All that the bride and groom have to do is select their destination among all the exciting and romantic options that are now available. Plans should be made ahead of time in order to avoid mishaps. Long live the bride and groom!
