Los Cabos, Mexico (July 30, 2013) – Perfectly situated at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, Solmar Hotels & Resorts – a five-property resort collection in Cabo San Lucas - offers couples an intimate setting for an unforgettable wedding day. Now, with the help of the Solmar Foundation, couples can share their love with the local Los Cabos community in a variety of ways.
Founded in October 2011, the Solmar Foundation was established by son of the late Don Luis Bulnes Moleda, the founder and visionary behind Solmar Hotels & Resorts, in an effort to support and give back to his beloved destination. Opportunities for supporting the local community are endless and couples are given creative freedom to expresses what they truly believe in as a couple, however some ways that couples are invited to make a difference include:
• Guest ‘favors’ - In place of traditional wedding favors, couples have the option to make a donation to one of the Solmar Foundation charities in each guests name and present small printed cards during the reception explaining the ‘favor’. Additionally, couples have included a beautiful donation container at the wedding inviting guests to donate on their behalf to a Solmar Foundation charity that is near and dear to their hearts.
• Flower Donations - Floral arrangements for a destination wedding often go to waste, as guests are traveling long distances and unable to take them home, however the Solmar Foundation offers guests the opportunity to brighten the days of many by donating the arrangements to local hospices or nursing homes following the event.
• Dress Donations – Many brides have gone the distance to donate leftover supplies to the Solmar Foundation such as lanterns, however some have gone above and beyond donating their dress to a less fortunate bride through the Solmar Foundation.
“While this program is completely optional, over the past few months we have worked with many couples, helping them to share their love with the Los Cabos community, and we are so proud to be a part of that special gesture,” said Managing Director of Solmar Hotels & Resorts Ricardo Orozco. “We find that our guests are very passionate about this destination and are always willing to find new and creative ways to give back to a community that has given them so many wonderful memories.”
