When curious brides ask me what an intimate independent venue can offer compared to a commercial big hotel, I get excited and think about where to begin to answer. A big hotel, such as Sandals or Sheraton, or Melia in Cancun, or Puerto vallarta, or wherever it may be, may have plenty of activities and 10 buffets to choose from; Yet, they do not have what an Indie venue can provide: Intimacy, charm and freedom to create your original wedding.
The type of bride who gets married in an independent non-hotel venue is an adventurous soul. She loves to be different. Her family and friends are usually experienced travelers who may even be tired of hotels. Also, they love to explore different cultures and cuisine. Non-commercial menus. An “indie” bride is not afraid to use local vendors for handicrafts and hire a “churro cart”, or have midnight tacos served out of a real taco stand!
Grooms who like to party and bring their own bottle of their special Scotch, or those are the grooms who love to throw unconventional surprises are perfect candidates for Indie venues. It is a personal wedding instead of a wedding held by a corporation that has sometimes up to 3 weddings per day! The level of personal service and custom shows or ideas that we can create in an private venue are almost endless. As opposed to a hotel, where you will have a pretty strict script to follow.
So if you are the type of person who has the spirit of an explorer; Someone who is free-thinking and adventurous. Who wants to not only go through the motions, but wants to create an original experience. Then you are a perfect match for a private venue. Many venues have in-house, one stop shop planning staff. Yet you still have a hand in the decor or creation of your original master piece. You can just ask for services or get involved as much as you like and become a bit of a designer yourself; However, most brides like to leave the actual work to us.
Think of Martoca Beach Garden or any indie venue as your empty canvas. Our venue and services would be your canvas and brushes and colors; But you are the artist. We just glide to where you need us and we will together create the wedding of your dreams. As you can see below, weddings can be very different styles in an indie venue.
You Decide. We design.
