A Fab Wedding in Zihuatanejo, Mexico

I recently experienced my first destination wedding. And I don’t think any of my other friends' weddings will compare (sorry!). I was invited by the sister of the groom and it was in fun-but-hard-to-pronounce Zihuajanetejo, Mexico. The bride and groom chose this particular destination because they felt it's Mexico's best kept secret; they love the tropical surroundings and the quaint feel of the town. The closest friends, myself included, all stayed at this amazing house that the ceremony and party took place at as well. Cabin fever? No way, no how. The house can best be described as a luxurious tree house; everything was made out of wood, it spanned a whole cliff, hammocks and open air abound and an infinity pool overlooked the bay. It was, to say the least, fabulous.

  • Who: Pamela & Colin
  • Where: The Tree House, Zihuajanetejo, Mexico
  • When: May 2, 2008
  • What the bride wore: Sue Wong gown, Rene Caovilla shoes (the splurge) and her salsa after party dress was BCBG
  • What the bridesmaids wore: One wore a Nicole Miller dress and they both changed into Victoria's Secret dresses for the salsa after party. They swapped wearing orange and green for the reception then the party (cute idea, huh?)
  • What Fab wore: Check me and my friend out
  • Where to next for Pamela & Colin: Greece

The intimate ceremony of about 30 people was cozy and comfortable. Since the bride and groom come from mixed ethnic backgrounds they celebrated the union of all the cultures. It was such a site to witness overlooking the beautiful Mexican bay.

To hear more details about the fantasy wedding,

The sweet ceremony and tropical cocktail reception — sangria margaritas anyone? — were just the beginning. The dinner was delish: frosty melon soup, Peruvian ceviche, pork tamales, red snapper machaca, and lots more. The dessert was just as lavish; the wedding cake was one layer mocha and chocolate, one layer mango and chocolate. As well, there was chocolate mousse, churros, and flaming Mexican coffee. And a candy bar! What fun for the little and big kids alike. The wedding colors were green and orange — so festive — and the candy bar was, too. Needless to say I had a tummyache by the end of the night (quick fix: a tequila shot!).

The bride and groom did an outfit change and performed a sexy salsa dance. Then we all danced the night away . . . I’ll spare you the excess tequila-induced details but it was quite the relaxing and invigorating wedding and vacation. And these pictures really help tell the story so enjoy!

hahaha there's an extra syllable there, it's just Zihuatanejo, not Zihuajanetejo but it's ok, our places have weird names for you foreigners... hell, even for me sometimes, and i'm Mexican

Does anyone know how to find this house. It looks amazing and I'm hoping to find it online but am having trouble.

Zihuatanejo it's a great place in the Pacific Ocean, but try Careyes, near Puerto Vallarta, also in the Pacific Ocean or Tulum in the Caribbean sea... paradise made in heaven...

what a fab wedding! this is exactly the kind of thing that id like to do but it would be dreadfully expensive for the bride and groom...if you dont mind me asking Fab, what is the proper etiquette for destination weddings, who pays for accomodation/airfares, the bride and groom or the guests themselves?

This is a wonderful idea. I love how destination weddings let the bride and groom have a much smaller wedding. It's a great way to eliminate superfluous invitees!

Zihuatanejo is beautiful, however I just have to disagree that it is Mexico's best kept secret...my number one is a little more east of Mexico.
