As more brides are in search of elusive islands to host intimate destination weddings at, we’ve expanded some of the destinations we feature on our website. In today’s post, we’re going to highlight some recent editions across the Caribbean, from Curacao to Puerto Rico, and offer a resort suggestion in each location. Although these locations may be exotic, and truly unique, it’s important to note they may require a heftier price tag in order to host your wedding there. You should also consider that travel time may require extra coordination, and travel costs may be extra for your guests too.
Resort Recommendation: For a destination wedding that desires a boutique resort while still offering all of the amenities of a larger property, consider the Waves Hotel and Spa. The resort rests on the scenic Platinum Coast in Barbados and offers unbelievable ceremony venues, unique group activities like rum tastings and culinary workshops, and even kayaking and paddleboarding included in the cost of your stay.

Resort Recommendation: There are not many all-inclusive resorts on the island, but the Sunscape Curacao resort makes up for that, located on the golden sand overlooking emerald waters. This family-friendly resort has something for everyone, including protected waters to snorkel in, the largest casino on the island, and a National Geographic certified dive center. Plus the ceremony venues are stunning, including a colonial gazebo overlooking the protected cove.
Resort Recommendation: For a luxurious destination wedding, consider booking the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach, welcoming couples to a contemporary location. Located in the beautiful Rio Grande section of the island, guests will love the nightly entertainment and supervised kids care for families, while your wedding could feature the beautiful ocean terrace and the stunning copper colored beach to lounge and relax on.
