If there’s one uncontrollable thing that stresses brides it’s weather, so a place where it’s eternally spring should sound like a desirable proposition for a destination wedding. That place, where free-flowing tequila, vivid flowers and festive music also happen to be in plentiful supply, is San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s likely more charming than anywhere you’ve ever traveled, and it’s also home to baroque Spanish architecture, a gorgeous pink neo-Gothic church and some truly mind-blowing food. Oh, and one more thing: the light. Magic hour here is like nowhere else, guaranteeing gorgeous photographs you’ll be admiring for decades.
The colonial city is not on the ocean, but you’ll forget all about the beach when you see a sunset here. There’s also the amazingly colorful, lively and memorable tradition of the callejoneada, aka wedding parade here, and if you like fun even just a little bit you’d be crazy not to include one in your big day.
