Los Cabos, Mexico has a beach called Playa del Amor (Lovers’ Beach), so you know this is a place for some serious romance. Dolphin swims, sunset cruises, and exploring the art districts of San Jose del Cabo and Todos Santos (home of the real Hotel California) are great ways to warm up for your wedding day, while bridal parties will revel in a Palmilla shopping trip while the guys hit the local links (or vice-versa).

When you’re ready to tie the knot, Los Cabos’ luxury resorts can create a most memorable affair whether your tastes run to a traditional Mexican ceremony or a toes-in-the-sand beach wedding. The Resort at Pedrigal, for example, can help you plan your seaside nuptials or let you exchange vows on a cliffside terrace, followed by a reception with dining and dancing at the traditional Don Manuel’s or the exquisite El Farallon seafood restaurant.

At the Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort, the perfect destination wedding begins with a rehearsal dinner at the intimate La Cava wine cellar, builds with a beach barbecue, and culminates with a sunset ceremony and reception by the beach or the lofty Plaza with its panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez. For the ultimate in privacy, consider the Esperanzaan Auberge resort cradled between two bluffs on an exclusive beach. As the resort hosts but one wedding daily, you’ll be the center of attention from the moment you arise in your oceanview villa until the last post-reception toast is raised at the Lounge Bar.

Finally, when you’re ready to make your lover yours forever, it seems fitting to consider a Los Cabos destination wedding at the One&Only Palmilla resort, where the traditional Mexican chapel is the stuff of dreams, the food is by Michelin-starred Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and the new Villa One features an amazing glass-sided pool and abundant space whether you’re entertaining your family, the wedding party, or just each other.
