VAX Agents’ Picks for LGBTQ Weddings

VAX loves hearing from our agents. Your must-see Cancun experiences, what you love in Vegas and even tips on how to book cruises. And now we asked you about LGBTQ destination weddings – your recommended destinations and resorts. While we realize Mexico is an all-time favorite for agents when putting together a dream wedding for their LGBTQ clients, new and intriguing resort and destination options flooded in. Here are the three LGBTQ-friendly resorts VAX agents recommended the most.

El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, Mexico

This adults-only beachfront resort is where wedding parties of any size and style can feel welcome. El Dorado Royale is located in the heart of the Riviera Maya and features a luxuriously romantic wedding ceremony facing the Mexican Caribbean. Beachfront gazebos, grand ballrooms, rooftop sky terraces and traditional chapels are just a few of the wedding venues offered to couples. Saying “I do” is made easy while surrounded by natural beauty, romance and sugary sand with the help of the resort’s expert wedding planners.

Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The Caribbean Sea has an authentic ring to it, but imagine it being the backdrop and soundtrack to the happiest couple’s wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic. Tie the knot ashore on the beach or on a floating wedding gazebo while the waves and breezes from the Caribbean Sea complement swaying palm trees in the distance. Suites at this resort include double hydro-spa tubs, balconies and exciting resort amenities like serene spa services and endless casino and club scenes.

Secrets The Vine Cancun, Mexico

The ultimate combination of desired elegance and comfort, contemporary indulgences are offered at this adults-only resort in the middle of the Yucatan Peninsula and the Caribbean Sea in Cancun. Each wedding package offered features a wedding cake and sparkling wine toast. The on-site wedding coordinator attends to the intricate details and requests your clients will have, so their special day consists of nothing but luxurious romance.
