Destination Wedding: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

The minute my then-fiancé and I arrived on the rooftop of the Rosewood Hotel in magical San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for the first time, we both knew THIS was where we would get married! We dreamt up so many incredible destination wedding ideas and none of them gave us that instantaneous spark like this cobblestoned colonial town. A fun & unique yet traditional destination was a MUST for us and San Miguel oozes all of the above.

Now, planning a destination wedding in another country on your own is a task I think, in hindsight, I may have underestimated but it is and was doable and I enjoyed pouring every ounce of creativity into making that weekend as unforgettable as possible. Of course, you can hire a planner either locally, through your venue, or a specialty destination wedding planner. I just preferred to work through every detail on my own so I knew that nothing would go unconsidered…
