All-inclusive wedding packages are all the rage!

We’ve sent thousands of clients to gorgeous destination weddings, where their every want and need is provided for.

But maybe you’ve got a few questions. What are destination wedding packages? What’s included, and what isn’t?

We’ve got the skinny on the tremendous perks of all-inclusive Jamaica wedding packages!

What is an All-Inclusive Wedding Package and What’s Included?

All-inclusive Jamaica wedding packages tie together everything you need for a destination wedding in one easy, convenient price.

A destination wedding package saves you hours you’d have spent making calls, sending emails, and comparing prices of photographers, venue spaces, caterers, floral arrangement companies, and several other services you need for your dream wedding.

With a wedding package, the costs a couple will pay are broken down into three simple categories instead of a dozen: airplane tickets, an all-inclusive suite, and the wedding package.

From there, guests will pay for their transportation and lodgings.

Wedding packages typically include the following major categories!

Wedding Planner and Coordinator

Most basic wedding packages will come with an onsite wedding planner and coordinator.

Once you’ve selected your all-inclusive resort, your wedding planner will work with you to finalize your wedding package selection and any additional add-ons you’d like to select. They work high level, helping you decide on color schemes and design aspects of your ceremony setup and reception.

Your wedding coordinator will ensure tactical concerns are handled, such as vendor deliveries, venue setup, and much more.

Furniture and Decor

All-inclusive wedding packages provide basic furniture set up for your ceremony and reception.

This varies package by package, but typically includes chairs, tables, linens, and stylish decor accents.

Food and Alcohol

All-inclusive resorts are home to numerous gourmet restaurants and bars, so you can rest assured that you and your guests will be well-fed.

Restaurants vary resort property by property, and some packages will come with higher-tiered, premium food choices, like a nacho bar or a chocolate fountain.

Your package will also determine the quality of alcohol provided for you and your wedding party.

Typically, lower-priced packages will come with beer and wine, while premium packages will come with open bars and custom cocktails.

Work with your resort’s wedding planner to determine the wedding package and food/drink packages appropriate for you and your guest list!

Are All-Inclusive Packages in Jamaica Expensive?

A destination wedding usually costs less than one held within the United States!

Depending on the number of amenities and extras that you choose, a destination wedding typically costs between $5,000 and $10,000

A 2021 study found that the average cost of a wedding in the US is $28,000.

And that 2021 data did not include a honeymoon in the final cost of a US-based wedding.

One of the many benefits of a destination wedding is that it bundles a wedding in a tropical location with an intimate honeymoon and an unforgettable vacation. 

What’s Not Included in a Jamaica Wedding Package?

Wedding Photographer

Your all-inclusive Jamaica wedding package doesn’t usually include a specialized photographer.

Some packages include a certain amount of images, such as 10-30 pictures, although the majority of packages charge extra for a photographer.

Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres, for instance, charges $600 for photographic vendor fees.

Although a professional photographer may not be a “must” for every couple, Destify and your on-site wedding planner will make sure to arrange this additional service for you if you are certain you want someone to capture all the meaningful moments of your special day.

Package Extras

Most wedding packages do not include a photographer or any of the other high-end wedding add-ons.

As we said before, all  basic Jamaica wedding packages include the fundamentals and requirements.

But for some people, getting married abroad is an opportunity to go all out. Some of our couples have in the past added extras like 4-hour celebrations with open bars, fireworks, live music or DJs, premium liquor, gourmet food stations, and even fire dancers.

Your wedding planner will make sure to provide these extras if you and your partner desire them!
