Weddings May Be a Recession-Proof Industry But You Can Still Save at Barcelo Resorts

They say that weddings are recession-proof but if you're a bride with a tight budget, there's never been a better time to get married. Last week, we told you that Sonesta Resorts on St. Maarten were offering free weddings to couples who book 10 or more rooms for a seven-night minimum stay. That included a free reception and bar, plus the use of a wedding coordinator!

But Sonesta isn't the only hotel doing this for brides and grooms.

Barceló Hotels & Resorts is offering a free wedding package at its forthcoming Barceló Los Cabos Palace Deluxe in Mexico to couples who can meet a minimum of 25 room-nights. (The resort will open in December.) In fact, Barcelo has put together so many other wedding packages at their diverse properties in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, that they had to start an entirely new website devoted to the big day--BarceloWeddings.com.

Here's how they describe the function of their new wedding site:

The site walks users through the entire process, from selecting a destination and resort to choosing the right package. With a total of 50 options available, every couple is sure to find something that suits their particular budget and style. What's more, Barceló's all-encompassing, all-inclusive packages make destination weddings both convenient and affordable for couples and their guests, eliminating any unwanted, last minute surprises at checkout.

The free wedding package at Barceló Los Cabos Palace includes a decorated wedding location, special in-room gifts for the couple, wedding coordinator services and a small wedding cake. The more elaborate wedding packages at the other properties which start at $1,320 throw in document arrangements, the services of a justice of the peace or minister, bouquets, romantic dinners and even, witnesses if you need them. Obviously, no minimum block of rooms or minimum guest count needed with that package.

For more info, search around BarceloWeddings.com at their different destinations and then follow the links to get in touch with an on-site wedding planner.
