When you Google “destination weddings,” the term “free weddings” comes up frequently. From resort websites to destination wedding blogs and magazines, they’re everywhere. This appears to be a fantastic deal, but like with any promotion, it’s always a good idea to perform some additional research.
Many couples assume that free wedding promos are too good to be true, but many of our brides find that free wedding packages are a terrific place to start when customizing their wedding. They’re also useful for sticking to a strict budget. Citing years of helping hundreds of thousands of couples find their dream complimentary wedding package, let’s take a look at which all-inclusive resorts offer free weddings:
Are Free Wedding Packages Actually Free?
Yes…and no. While meeting specific requirements guarantees you a free ceremony, you might have to pay an officiant fee due to their third-party access. With taxes and other additional fees (decor, attire, excursions, etc.) considered, the average cost out of pocket can be around $700.
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
This all-inclusive resort, hidden in a quiet cove on the coast of Puerto Vallarta, offers a gorgeous and secluded beach to make your tropical holiday perfect. Your Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta wedding will be pure happiness as you say your vows, with large suites and views of the magnificent beaches and bright gardens.
It is ideal for couples looking for a modest, romantic escape on a private beach in Puerto Vallarta. The beautiful Sierra Madre Mountains surround the hotel, allowing for excursions outside of the property. The resort looks west over the Pacific Ocean, offering breathtaking ocean vistas and spectacular sunsets, perfect for a Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta wedding celebration.
