Dec. | 2017. Wedding planners from around the world will gather in Los Cabos next April, when the destination hosts the Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress. One of the biggest events in the wedding industry, the DWP is expected to attract more than 400 delegates including 150 of the top wedding planners in the world to Los Cabos. This is the first time the Congress will meet in the Americas. Weddings are big business in Mexico. Research has found that nearly one in four of all weddings (totaling 350,000 couples) around the world are destination weddings — and while the great majority of destination weddings take place in the United States, some 9 percent of them are held in Mexico. What’s more, destination weddings have increased by more than 50 percent in Mexico over the past five years.
