So you just got engaged! Well congratulations Wedding couples! I do suggest, if you have not done so already, for you to consider a Destination Wedding for your big day and now is the perfect time to get your planning underway. Karisma Hotels and Spa Resorts hosts a Brides Dress Rehearsal event annually on specific dates and have recently announced the 2015 event schedule!
I had the opportunity to spend some time with Karisma’s Management and Sales team members in Mexico last May during one of their Wedding University trainings held for Travel Professionals. This trip included site and suite inspections at all of their El Dorado, Azul and Generations properties in and around the Riviera Maya area. Food and wine pairings, a tour of their infamous Green Globe Certified Greenhouse as well as hands on training to experience the Gourmet Inclusive concept and how it’s incorporated into the Destination Wedding packages offered by Karisma. One of the most interesting parts of this trip for me was having the opportunity to see what a potential Bride and Groom would receive when booking one of Karisma Hotels’ exclusive Memorable Moments Signature Wedding packages as well as the additional pre-wedding trip event, the “Brides Dress Rehearsal”.
Every year, Karisma schedules specific dates for Wedding Couples to visit their properties prior to the wedding date. During these 3-night visits, 2 people from the Wedding group (could be the Bride and Groom or her Mom) have the opportunity to sample food and wine, select their venue from choices of a Sky-(Rooftop), Beach, Chapel or Garden Gazebo Ceremony, select reception/dining decorations and meet with photographers as well as the entire Wedding planning team.

Space is limited so I would highly recommend waiting to book any airline flights until your Resort accommodation dates have been confirmed by Karisma. The Karisma Hotels family includes 4 El Dorado Spa Resorts which are Adults only properties, Azul Hotels and Generations Resorts. If you have not yet thought about a Destination Wedding, then you really should! From their Gourmet “All-Inclusive” concept to the numerous venue options to choose from, Karisma Weddings has something for every engaged couple to enjoy. Destination Weddings continue to grow in popularity each year so consider celebrating this special event in your life at one of nine luxury resorts in beautiful Mexico or at the Azul Sensatori Resort in Jamaica surrounded by some of your closest family and friends in the fabulous Caribbean. Various Wedding packages as well as “Special Offers” are available to fit just about any wedding budget.
I have been privileged to attend a few on site trainings over the past almost 30 years and I must say that Karisma Hotels and Resorts is one of my all time favorite Travel Partner hosts. Thank you to all of the Karisma team members for your hospitality and generosity while educating by indulging us in your Gourmet Inclusive “wonderfulness”!
