08 Sep Rock Star Weddings at Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Whether you see yourself exchanging “I Dos” back in the States and celebrating your vows in a symbolic ceremony on the sand next to a lagoon, legally committing yourselves to one another under a beachside gazebo, religiously professing your faith and love to one another in an ocean front chapel, or celebrating with a traditional Indian wedding, Hard Rock Riviera Maya will not disappoint.
This property has no limitations when it comes to your guest list, as Hard Rock Riviera Maya consists of an adults-only side, Heaven and a family-friendly side, Hacienda. This means that while a Bride and Groom may wish to have children join them for the ceremony and/or reception, they may also escape to Heaven where they will find more romance and privacy.
I had the honor of meeting Colin Cowie, the designer of the WOW Wedding Collection, during my time in Mexico. He has effortlessly taken his multi-million dollar weddings and used them as inspiration to create all of the WOW collections at Hard Rock. My favorite collection is “Purple Shimmer.” This collection includes an aisle lined with silver Shephard’s hooks with hanging glass globes and floating pink roses, a podium decorated with circular vases filled with Calla Lillies and other beautiful flowers and has a glistening backdrop of iridescent beads. If lilac isn’t your color, there are other collections are just as elegant, modern, timeless and affordable!
Hard Rock wants their guests to experience not only the resort, but the local experiences as well! When you book with Hard Rock, you and your guests are provided Resort Credit. This resort credit can be used for tours (Swimming with the dolphins, visiting Chichen Itza…etc), unlimited golf (even your beverages are included!), the spa, and more! These tour options are great to experience with just you and your spouse to be, as newly weds or with your guests. Best of all, our Romance Experts are now able to book these options for you in advance!
At some resorts, they require you to make reservations at their restaurants or limit how many times you can make reservations while you are in destination…not at Hard Rock! At Hard Rock, you can eat at any of their restaurants as often as you’d like with no reservations. I myself made sure to enjoy the teriyaki chicken and entertainment at the grill at Zen and then head to Le Petit Cochon for their delicious creme brulee one night during my stay.
To work off all of the calories I unregrettably just ate, I made my way to Heaven Night Club, but not before swinging back to my room to pick up my swim suit. I couldn’t miss out on swimming in their night club pool, which sits right in front of the DJ booth and is surrounded by the VIP booths, who host guests such as Eva Longoria. Be sure to request your favorite song at this no cover club as the DJ aims to please! This is also a great spot for your late night wedding celebrations. During my stay, a Bride and Groom even jumped into the pool, and of course their wedding resort photographer captured it all.
No matter where I was at this resort, undoubtedly with a Blue Hawaiian in hand, I always found myself fulfilled. If I wanted to relax, I found a beach bed next to the lagoon or visited the spa. If i wanted to be entertained, I found karaoke with a live band in Heaven’s lobby or went to the pool. If I wanted adventure, I found the onsite water slide, fed the fish tortillas or used my resort credit. If I wanted romance, I found my private second floor with my own jacuzzi and lounging area. Whatever you are looking for, Hard Rock Riviera Maya has it.
I’d love to tell you more about their collections, the other great offers including a 2-night stay for your first Anniversary, sound check wedding site inspection (where you can go check out the hotel before you book) and more.
