Choose a UNESCO World Heritage Site for your Destination Wedding

San Miguel de Allende is a colonial mountain town situated in the foothills of the Sierra Madres and is considered one of Mexico’s prettiest towns. With a rich history dating back to the 16th century, well-preserved colonial architecture and cobblestone streets, San Miguel is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers some of the best wedding venues in Mexico. In 2013, Condé Nast readers voted San Miguel “Best City in the World”. San-Miguel-de-Allende-Wedding-Venues

Couples looking for a destination beyond a beach should consider the breathtaking colonial town of San Miguel de Allende with its dramatic mountain sunsets and a sophisticated food and cultural scene. Here, you can choose from wedding venues in a beautiful Mexican hacienda, private luxury home or boutique hotel.

Many couples choose to embrace the wedding parade tradition of a callejoneada, which is local to San Miguel. After the ceremony, the bride, groom and their guests walk through the streets of San Miguel. Joining them on this festive parade is a donkey adorned with colorful paper flowers, a mariachi band and giant puppets typically made in the likeness of the couple.

Hacienda Las Trancas

If you are looking for an intimate and private setting for your destination wedding in San Miguel de Allende, consider renting the beautiful 450 year-old Mexican Hacienda Las Trancas. This historic resort and spa offers elegance, romance and tranquility. It is the perfect setting for a destination wedding in the beautiful colonial heart of Mexico.

Casa Hyder

Behind an unassuming street side wall and massive wood doors lay a series of three houses that make up the compound known as the Hyder House (Casa Hyder). With bougainvillea, climbing roses, mesquite trees and purple-blooming jacarandas spilling everywhere you will find a labyrinth of great rooms, libraries, patios, hidden stairwells and garden nooks. Everywhere you look there is a view more beautiful than the last. Casa Hyder has a reputation among locals as a living museum stuffed with 17th century collectibles and art.

Casa Hyder is 13,865 square feet of magnificent colonial styled construction sprawled across two-thirds of an acre of manicured tropical gardens. The size of the house and extent of its gardens are unequaled in San Miguel de Allende and provides the best venue for a destination wedding.

Best Hacienda for Destination Weddings in Mexico

The Yucatan is home to some of the most charming and luxurious haciendas built during the Mexican colonial period that offers unique experiences for romantic destination weddings.

Although there are many wedding venues to choose from, my favorite is Hacienda Uayamon in Campeche. Built in 1700, Hacienda Uayamon reflects the sophistication of a luxury resort with attention to the surrounding natural beauty. This is the perfect location for couples looking for something completely different. The hacienda’s “chapel in ruins” is a magical location for your destination wedding. This mystic and peaceful venue is incredibly unique and one of a kind. Combine this with the hacienda’s exceptional services and you have the best destination wedding venue in all of Mexico!
