Grand Velas Resorts roll out the red carpet for the world’s most elite couples ready to tie the knot

In follow-up to the resorts’ supersized coming-of-age celebration for teens launched last year, Mexico’s “Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond All Compare” Grand Velas Resorts roll out the red carpet for the world’s most elite couples ready to tie the knot. Inclusive of complete wedding planning services from New York’s Brilliant Event Planning, the Billionaire’s Wedding Package starts at $2.5 million for up to 100 guests at either the AAA Five Diamond Resort in Riviera Maya or Riviera Nayarit. The package, which includes a round the clock glamour squad to ensure the bride-to-be is always looking on fleek, is also available to book in 2017 and beyond at the Grand Velas Los Cabos opening later this year.

Upon arrival to the destination, attendees are presented with cool towels scented in the couple’s signature scent and then whisked away to the resort in style via private luxury vehicles. At the luxury resort the couple and their guests are treated to a mini head and neck massage to remove any last minutes stress prior to the start of multi-day affair. Personal concierges then whisk attendees to their spacious suites, each over 1,000 sq. ft., where custom welcome gifts, tequila service and drawn baths – in the couple’s signature scent – await. If sun-kissed skin is on the agenda, signature champagne popsicles are served poolside.

As evening rolls around, the Fiesta Blanca gets started, complete with elegant white décor, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, premium beverages, native dancers, and a performance from a special musical guest. Gavin Degraw, Demi Lovato, Lenny Kravitz, Kelly Clarkson, Meghan Trainor, and Diana Ross are among the possible options for the music act based on the couple’s preference.

When it comes to the main event the following day, everything is taken care of from custom designed dress by Michael Costello – who’s dressed the likes of top celebrities from Ciara and Beyonce to Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga – to a multi-tiered sugar flower creation by Sylvia Weinstock. To impress one guests with a grand entrance, a First Dance Experience with professional ballroom dancer and Dancing with the Stars alum Karina Smirnoff includes her travel to the couple in advance of the big day for choreography and rehearsals. Custom wedding bands, a twelve piece band, engraved flatware for each place setting with the couple’s new monogram, custom table linens, officiant, and oversized flower walls are also included. Fireworks and a top DJ, such as La Rue, Cebu or Felix Da House Cat, keep the after-party going until sunrise. Best of all, one of the world’s top wedding photographers and their cinematographer counterpart will be in attendance to capture it all.

While guests have to shell out for their own airfare, the couple is treated to roundtrip private jet transportation from anywhere in the US.
