    The folks at Karisma Hotels & Resorts know weddings. Each year, they celebrate thousands of nuptials at their Gourmet Inclusive Mexico resorts — and it’s for a reason. Here are 10 reasons to get married with Karisma Hotels & Resorts

    The Destination. Riviera Maya, Mexico is known for its stunning beaches, rich culture, and thriving tourism. Apart from the actual wedding, guests can also get the chance to visit ancient Mayan sites, snag unique artisan goods at local markets and try some of the best street tacos in the world.

    Destination Weddings Mean the Party Don’t Stop. You’ve invited your closest friends and family to celebrate your love, and that means the fun starts as soon as you check in. From the welcome cocktail, to group BBQs, boat rides, and hangover brunches, Karisma Hotels & Resorts is there to ensure your trip is that of a lifetime.

    Venue Options. A wedding at Karisma Hotels & Resorts means your ”I Dos” can be done wherever you like. Family-friendly or adults only, beachfront or ballroom, our nine Gourmet Inclusive resorts can accommodate your every whim. Whether you prefer a simple ceremony on the sand, traditional chapel or rooftop views, each resort has options to please even the biggest bridezilla.

    Villa Weddings. If nine hotels (El Dorado Resorts, Azul Hotels, Generations Resorts, Hidden Beach Resort) wasn’t enough to choose from, there are also the Karisma Villas. Standalone properties, these Caribbean style mansions accommodate up to 20 people and come with private butlers, chefs, pools and direct ocean access. Sounds like the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready (think of the Instagram photos!).

    Wedding Couples Fly Free. Yep, you read right. We know you’re traveling a long way, and we’re all about making that a little easier. When your group books 10 rooms for a minimum of three nights, the wedding couple receives a $1,000 air credit.

    Wedding Couples Stay Free. Also not a typo. With every 10 rooms paid, the bride & groom get one room free. Plus, you’ll get discounts on free private events and a $250 resort credit. Spa, here you come.

    Free Private Events. It keeps getting better and better. The more rooms you book at one of our resorts, the more free events you’re eligible to receive. Think cocktail events, lunches, dinners and more. Which means there’s more time to enjoy the vacation!

    An Always & Forever FREE Wedding. Want the ceremony for free? How about the reception? At Karisma Hotels & Resorts, we can make that happen. When you book qualifying room categories for a minimum of 15 room nights total in your group, you’ll receive a complimentary wedding complete with ceremony, reception, décor & more.

    Memorable Moments Décor Packages. Don’t want to stress about color schemes, flowers and table settings? You don’t have to. The Memorable Moments signature décor collections were created to bring ease to the bride. From Coastal Chic to Colonial Charm, there something to fit every couple’s personality. On the flip side, if you’re into customizing your entire weekend, that’s not a problem either. Your day, your way.

    The Karisma Gourmet Inclusive Experience. Above anything else, a wedding at Karisma Hotels & Resorts means you’re getting the signature Gourmet Inclusive Experience. From personal butler service, to elevated cuisine and top shelf spirits, the Karisma Experience is one you simply won’t get anywhere else.
