Weddings can be expensive. In fact, the average wedding cost in the U.S. is $29,000!
But if you’re looking to save a little money (or a lot) and still want a memorable wedding day, complimentary destination weddings are a fantastic option.
Mexico is one of the most popular spots for destination weddings and there’s no question why. With the beautiful resorts, white sand beaches, and clear blue water, the background of your wedding photos will be magical.
Free wedding packages exist, but there are targets you have to reach before it’s actually free. For example, a resort may say you have to book 30 room nights in order to quality.
