Purchasing a wedding package from an all-inclusive resort is the most common way our couples host their 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.
The basic 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.
The upgraded package typically offers all of the basic package’s inclusions, and modifications to allow for further guests.
This luxury package example is based on many of the highest priced packages our most popular resorts offer. It’s common to find added inclusions such as spa treatments and photography included in these packages.
Again, these are just samples of what you can expect from an all-inclusive wedding package. Cost and inclusions vary by your chosen resort. Additional fees for extra guests may apply. Resorts may offer further items at extra costs, like more unique and special venues (like rooftop terraces) and a-la-carte menus if you would like to add additional services like videography or personalized floral arrangements. You can always use our wedding calculator to get a real-world estimate immediately.
Discount Rates: Many resorts offer discounted 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 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.
