In Bridal by Suzanne Koch

If romantic spontaneity hits you hard while in Mexico, Velas Resorts can help you out. The all-inclusive brand just recently introduced a luxurious elopement package that can help couples take the jump and say ‘I do.’ Offered at four different properties, the package includes an authentic Mayan or Huichol ceremony, a bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonnière, a post-ceremony sparkling wine toast and a romantic three-course dinner on the beach. The package also includes a single-layer wedding cake with flavors ranging from vanilla and chocolate to chili mango margarita and passion fruit, along with one-way airport transportation, a romantic newlywed breakfast, a 50-minute couple’s massage, an in-suite day-of wedding amenity, a 10-percent spa boutique discount and more. Couples can schedule engagements for ring selections with local Mexican jewelers as well as wedding dress and tuxedo appointments with local boutiques.

The Mayan Ceremony at Grand Velas Riviera Maya features sacred blessings and unification of the couple’s Tzolkins from a Shaman, an ocean ritual, a Mayan song and an instrument ceremony. At Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, Velas Vallarta and Casa Velas, the Huichol Ceremony features all-white attire, musicians playing traditional songs and even a Marakame (Huichol shaman priest) to lead.

The Elopement Package is offered at Casa Velas and Velas Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta along with Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Grand Velas Riviera Maya. The package costs $1,500 at Casa Velas and Velas Vallarta, $2,000 at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and $2,500 at Grand Velas Riviera Maya.
