Destination wedding specialist Jennifer Doncsecz, owner of VIP Vacations in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, learned just how steep the learning curve is when handling her first South Asian destination wedding over a decade ago.
“Explaining what we needed to the resort in Mexico was very difficult and tedious. When we said that we needed a special bowl for the fire ceremony they kept saying they don’t do bonfires on the beach,” she said. “Destination weddings are already complex, but South Asian weddings have even more complexity than most.”
Over the years, Doncsecz has seen an increasing number of hotel companies with properties in Mexico and the Caribbean, the two most popular destinations for South Asian weddings, become better-versed in the market. Some such as Palace Resorts and Hard Rock Hotels have developed South Asian wedding packages and specialist training.
