There are two questions we've been dying to ask you... Do you live in California or the West Coast? Are you planning your wedding? If you answered yes, we'd like to introduce you to Valle de Guadalupe.
Doesn't a Mexico winery wedding sounds like a lot of fun?
Valle de Guadalupe is a gorgeous area of Mexico that's scenic, fun and affordable, even if you're thinking of having fifty or more people attend your destination wedding in Mexico. It's a fact: Valle de Guadalupe is the fastest growing wine and food region in the world and amazingly, it's situated just two hours south of the San Diego Airport. (If you and your guests are flying from San Francisco, you're looking at just three hours of total transit time.)
Experience Valle de Guadalupe: The Napa Valley of Mexico
There are dozens of picturesque wineries producing world-class wines including Mina Penelope, Relieve Vinicola, Villa Montefiori, Vinas de Garza, Decantos Vinicola, Casa de Piedra, Vina de Frannes, Chateau Camou, Adobe Guadalupe, Vena Cava, Casa Magoni, Bruma, Henri Lurton and Corona del Valle.
Without a doubt, with its beauty, its wine, and a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy, Valle de Guadalupe will be delight for your guests. Even though the region produces some of the best world-class wines and has some of the most exclusive restaurants and boutique hotels on Earth, for many of your guests, it will be the first time they experience all that Valle de Guadalupe has to offer.
Here are the top five tips to plan your Valle de Guadalupe wedding:
1) Book your hotels EARLY! There are only a handful of hotels in the area that can accommodate groups of 50 or more for a fabulous Mexico winery wedding and they book up far in advance, especially on weekends. Some of the popular hotels that you'll want to contact and tour include Hacienda Guadalupe, Agua de Vid and Encuentro Guadalupe
in the Ensenada wine country Valle de Guadalupe, and Lucerna and Hotel Coral and Marina in Coastal Ensenada. You and your guests will love the beautiful ocean views!
2) Make sure to enlist the expert help of a top tour company to help with transportation logistics. It's best to find a tour company that is based in San Diego so that they can provide cross-border transportation for any of your guests who are not comfortable driving in Mexico. Having multiple drivers and vehicles available will offer the flexibility you'll need to accommodate different schedules.
Having a transportation company available will also make it easy for your guests and wedding party to go on local excursions, and of course, will make your life easier. There is simply no good reason why any bride needs to be concerned about getting people where they want and need to go. You will have other more important things on your mind.
3) In terms of the location, it's best to find a beautiful wedding venue that is not near the main roads. Valle de Guadalupe is filled with gorgeous wineries, but if you are near the road, the noise from the cars and trucks can ruin the ambiance. Seek out a beautiful winery that is has ample space for your dream wedding. Some of the most popular venues are Relieve Vinicola, Decantos and Las Nubes.
4) Why not use your Valle de Guadalupe bachelor or bachelorette party near San Diego as an opportunity to connect with your local wedding team? Since Valle de Guadalupe is so close to San Diego, you can plan the ultimate Valle de Guadalupe bachelorette experience and show off the amazing region where your wedding will be hosted at the same time. Don't forget to ask your driver or tour guide to help you arrange face-to-face meetings with local vendors to get all of your questions answered.
5.) When hiring a concierge or tour company, consider the real value they bring to the table. Any company you hire should do more than just give good advice or be order takers. The real value comes from the unique ideas they can offer you to make sure your Valle de Guadalupe wedding is off the charts! Ask about their staffing. Who will be onsite to make all of the details of your wedding day go off without a hitch?
Ask abut the small details that add up to the best wedding ever
By choosing Valle de Guadalupe, you'll be getting married in one of the coolest places in the world! Especially in the Valle de Guadalupe region, premiere travel concierge companies are known to go out of their way to make your Destination wedding in Mexico something different and wonderful, and make you the happiest couple on your special day.
So, look for and ask about the small touches that will make a big difference, such as: private door-to -door transportation from the Tijuana Airport or the San Diego Airport; day-of wedding coordination; event planning services; contract negotiations with venues, hotels, and wineries; designing an incredible Valle de Guadalupe bachelorette experience; or designing a selection of unforgettable off-site experiences for your wedding guests to be able to explore the Northern Baja region!
