All Inclusive destination wedding package breakdown

Purchasing a destination wedding package from an all-inclusive resort is the most common way our couples host their all-inclusive destination weddings. But what exactly is a wedding package? Like purchasing a TV or a car, wedding packages come in different varieties and price points and differ from minimal to lavish ceremony setups. A package may already feature everything you’re looking for, or you can use it as a base to further customize. Packages vary by the resort brand and location you choose. Below are a collection of example packages, tiered similarly to how many resorts feature theirs.

Sample Basic Package

The basic destination wedding package a resort offers may be complimentary, based on the number of rooms/nights you are staying, and additional taxes and fees may apply.

Further tips:

Discount Rates: Many resorts offer discounted all inclusive destination wedding package rates during certain months of the year, generally during their slower months. Some resorts have different prices for weekdays and weekends. Also, they may only offer a package for a specific period of time each year. Room Upgrades: Room upgrade for the couple are a common feature of wedding destinations packages, but if a resort is near capacity, it may not be available for you. Symbolic and Legal Ceremonies: A symbolic ceremony is the most popular ceremony type for destination weddings. A civil ceremony is legally binding and has extra fees and requirements.
