What is a destination wedding?

A destination wedding is a wedding held in a non-traditional location that requires out-of-town travel for most of the guests. Examples of destination wedding locations include beaches, cruises, resorts, mountain towns, villas, and foreign countries.

Our Caribbean destination weddings are a type of wedding where the ceremony and reception take place in a Caribbean destination. It’s a popular option for couples who want a beautiful and luxurious wedding in an exotic location. Some popular Caribbean destinations for destination weddings include Mexico, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Aruba, and the Bahamas.

How to plan a destination wedding with Destify?

1. Choose a destination: Determine the location you’d like to hold your wedding.

2. Get organized: Meet each person involved in the planning process and follow our timeline for all tasks that need to be completed.

3. Invite guests: Create a list of your invitees and start sending out the details.

4. Design and decor: Work directly with your resort to select vendors and decor packages for your ceremony and reception such as a photographer, music, catering, and décor.

5. Manage the details: Use Destify’s dashboard to track RSVPs, stay on top of payments, communicate with guests, and manage the details of the wedding.

6. Enjoy!: On the day of your wedding, let Destify handle the stress and enjoy your special day!

What is included in a free wedding package?

A free wedding package typically includes a wedding ceremony performed by a licensed officiant, a wedding bouquet and boutonniere, a wedding cake, and sparkling wine or cider for the toasting ceremony. 

Some free wedding packages may also include a small wedding reception, photography and/or videography, and wedding decorations. Each ‘free’ wedding package varies by location and resort and may require certain stipulations in order to qualify.

What destination wedding venues does Destify offer?

We offer a range of gorgeous resorts from Mexico to the Caribbean. Depending on the size or location of your resorts you may have access to common wedding venues like the beach, garden, ballroom, gazebo, piers, poolside, rooftops, and much more.

What hair and makeup options do I have?

Many of our wedding resorts have spas and bridal salons built directly into the resort. They may even include bridal suites where getting ready is as luxurious and easy as possible. 

At an all-inclusive bridal suite, you will typically have a range of hair and makeup options available. Generally, professional makeup artists, hair stylists, eyelash technicians, and spray tanners are all available. Depending on the bridal suite, you may also have access to specialized beauty treatments, such as manicures, massage treatments, and facials. The suite can also provide you with a selection of hairstyles, make-up looks, and nail colors to choose from.

What catering options do I have?

The catering options you will have at an all-inclusive resort for your wedding will depend on the specific resort you choose, but some general amenities often include 

• Tailored menu options to suit your budget, style, and palate preferences 

• On-site chefs to create customized dishes

• Collaboration with the resort’s Food & Beverage team to match wedding decor

• On-site wine cellar and bartending services

• Customizable specialty cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, desserts and more

• Buffet-style meal options, including vegan and vegetarian options 

• Late-night snack stations 

• Outdoor grilling for a more relaxed wedding celebration 

• Specialty cake designed to match your wedding theme 

• Individually served plated meals.

What entertainment options do I have?

At an all-inclusive wedding, you have plenty of entertainment options. Some ideas include live music, a DJ, a live photographer or videographer, a photo booth, a karaoke machine, a dance troupe, a live band, a firework show, and so much more. Decide on which entertainment option is best for you and your budget!

What group activities can I book for my guests?

Resort activities are endless but some of our favorites include:

  • Nature walks, hikes, and bird-watching tours
  • Guided kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, or scuba diving trips
  • Swimming, playing on the beach, or building sand castles
  • Beach volleyball, soccer, or other sports
  • Karaoke or game nights
  • Painting, clay modeling, or jewelry making
  • Boat cruises or catamaran sailings
  • Cultural excursions or city tours
  • Salsa lessons or dance classes
  • Making handcrafted items such as hats, masks, or jewelry
  • Cooking lessons or food-tasting events
  • Horseback riding or zip-lining
  • Stargazing and astronomy classes
  • Shopping trips to local markets
  • Yoga, tai chi, or meditation classes

Will my marriage be legally binding in my home country?

You can legally get married at your chosen resort. The legality of a marriage abroad is determined by the laws of the country of origin. Therefore, it is best to consult with a lawyer in your home country to determine the legally binding status of your marriage.

However, the majority of our couples choose to get married legally in their home state or local courthouse and then host a “symbolic” ceremony at their chosen resort. Your guests won’t know the difference!

Can I visit my resort first?

Yes! Many resorts host exclusive stays and cheaper stays for couples who want to visit a resort first. Although definitely not necessary, it is always a good idea to visit first before you book if it’s within your budget, to get a feel for the resort and make sure it is the right fit for your special day. Your Destify specialist can even help you book this stay should you be interested.

All-inclusive Destination Weddings from Destify

Destination weddings are increasingly popular as they provide a unique and personalized experience for couples. They create an intimate and special atmosphere by selecting a meaningful location. Additionally, they allow for a longer celebration, acting as a mini-vacation. However, careful planning is required to manage costs and logistics for both the couple and guests. Despite the extra considerations, destination weddings offer a cherished and memorable experience in a beautiful location

Overview of Destination Weddings

Destination weddings have become a rising trend in recent years as couples seek out more unique and personalized experiences for their special day. These weddings provide an opportunity for couples to create a truly intimate and special atmosphere by selecting a meaningful location that holds significance to them. Whether it’s a stunning beachfront villa in the Caribbean or a charming vineyard in Tuscany, the options are endless when it comes to choosing the perfect destination for a wedding.

One of the main advantages of having a destination wedding is the extended celebration it offers. Rather than just a single day of festivities, couples and their guests get to enjoy a mini-vacation together. This allows for more quality time to be spent with loved ones and creates lasting memories. Whether it’s exploring the local sights, enjoying delicious cuisine, or simply relaxing by the pool, the extra time spent together is cherished by all.

Rising Trend in Destination Wedding Planning

With Destify by your side, you can enjoy a stress-free experience and make your dream wedding a reality. There are numerous benefits to choosing Destify as your destination wedding planner and travel agent.

Embrace the Advantages: Why Choose a Destination Wedding?

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are countless decisions to be made. One option that is growing in popularity is a destination wedding. Choosing to have your wedding in a beautiful and exotic location can offer several advantages that traditional weddings simply can’t provide. Here are a few reasons why you should consider embracing the advantages of a destination wedding.

Exotic Locations and Scenic Backdrops

One of the most obvious advantages of a destination wedding is the opportunity to exchange vows in an exotic location with a stunning backdrop. Whether you dream of saying “I do” on a pristine beach in the Caribbean or against the backdrop of a breathtaking mountain range in Switzerland, a destination wedding allows you to choose a truly gorgeous location. 

These scenic backdrops can make for stunning wedding photos and provide an amazing experience for both when it comes to planning a wedding, many couples today are opting for destination weddings. There are several advantages to choosing a destination wedding, from the exotic locations and stunning scenery to the intimate and personalized celebrations. Additionally, destination weddings can often be more budget-friendly compared to traditional weddings. Let’s explore these advantages in further detail.

One of the biggest draws of a destination wedding is the opportunity to exchange vows in an exotic location. Whether it’s a picturesque beach in the Caribbean, a charming vineyard in Italy, or a majestic castle in Scotland, destination weddings offer breathtaking backdrops that will make your special day one-of-a-kind.

Intimate and Personalized Celebrations

Another advantage of destination weddings is the ability to create a more intimate and personalized celebration. With fewer guests to accommodate, you can focus on spending quality time with your nearest and dearest. Destination weddings often have a more relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, allowing you to truly connect with your loved ones and create lasting memories together. 

Additionally, many resorts and venues offer wedding packages that include personalized services, such as dedicated wedding planners, customized menus, and unique ceremony setups.

Cost Considerations and Budget-Friendly Options

Contrary to popular belief, destination weddings can be more cost-effective compared to traditional weddings. While the initial cost of travel and accommodation may seem higher, destination weddings often have lower guest counts, resulting in reduced overall expenses. 

Additionally, many resorts and venues offer all-inclusive packages that cover everything from the ceremony and reception to accommodation and meals. These packages can help you stick to your budget and avoid the stress of individually booking multiple vendors and services.

Moreover, choosing a destination wedding allows you to combine your wedding and honeymoon into one unforgettable experience. After the ceremony, you and your partner can simply stay at the destination and continue to enjoy your honeymoon without the hassle of additional travel. This saves time and money and adds an extra layer of romance to your wedding celebration.

Logistical Challenges and Solutions

Destify provides you with a personal wedding concierge who will guide you through the entire planning process, offer expert advice, and handle any unexpected challenges that may arise. Your wedding resort’s team of professionals will ensure that every aspect of your wedding is executed flawlessly, leaving you with unforgettable memories.

Your Budget Your Way

Lastly, Destify understands the importance of staying within a budget. We work with you to find a destination and package that suits your preferences and financial constraints. With their extensive knowledge and industry connections, we can help you maximize your budget and make the most of your wedding investment.

Choosing Destify for your destination wedding offers numerous benefits including exclusive deals and discounts, stress-free logistics, expert guidance, and budget-friendly options. With Destify’s dedication and professionalism, you can rest assured that your dream wedding will be a truly unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones.

Dealing with Language Barriers

Managing Travel Arrangements for Guests can be a complex and delicate task, and one challenge that could arise in dealing with language barriers. In a globalized world where people from different cultures and backgrounds travel frequently, it is common to encounter guests who do not speak the same language as the hotel staff. Therefore, professionals in the hospitality industry must have effective strategies and resources in place to overcome this obstacle.

One way to address language barriers is by hiring multilingual staff or interpreters who can assist guests in their preferred language. This can make a significant difference in ensuring clear communication and providing a positive experience for the guests. Additionally, hotels can offer language training programs for their employees to enhance their linguistic skills and proficiency in various languages commonly spoken by guests.

Contingency Plans for Unforeseen Circumstances

Another important aspect of managing travel arrangements is the need for contingency plans to deal with unforeseen circumstances. No matter how meticulous the planning process may be, there is always a possibility of unexpected events, such as flight delays, natural disasters, or medical emergencies. To minimize the impact of these situations on guests, hotels should have contingency plans in place, especially in English, which is a widely spoken language and serves as a common ground for international communication.

These contingency plans should outline steps to be taken in emergency situations, provide information on alternative transportation options, and include guidelines for handling guest complaints or concerns. It is crucial for hotel staff to be well-trained and prepared to respond swiftly and efficiently during such circumstances. This not only helps to ensure the safety and well-being of guests but also maintains the reputation and credibility of the hotel.

Choosing the Perfect Destination: Tips and Considerations

Choosing the right destination for your dream wedding is one of the most exciting parts of the planning process. With so many options available, it can be hard to narrow down your choices. Here are some tips and considerations to help you select the perfect location for your destination wedding.

1. Reflect on your preferences: Think about the type of wedding you’ve always envisioned. Do you imagine saying your vows on a beautiful sandy beach or in a charming tropical garden? Consider your style and the ambiance you want to create for your special day.

2. Consider your guests: Keep in mind the needs and preferences of your guests. Think about their travel capabilities, budget limitations, and any potential visa requirements. Choosing a location that is easily accessible and offers a range of accommodation options will ensure that everyone can attend and have a memorable experience.

3. Seek expert advice: Lean on your Destify wedding concierge for guidance in selecting the perfect destination for your dream wedding. They have extensive knowledge of various destinations and can provide valuable insights to help you make an informed decision.

By considering these tips and taking the time to carefully select the perfect location, you can ensure that your destination wedding will be everything you’ve ever dreamed of. With Destify’s expertise and support, you can confidently embark on this exciting journey towards your happily ever after.

Step-by-Step Guide to Booking and Travel

Once you have chosen your dream destination for your wedding, the next step is to book accommodations and make travel arrangements for you and your guests. This is an essential aspect of your destination wedding planning that requires careful consideration and organization. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you navigate this process seamlessly.

1. Determine your accommodation needs: Think about the number of guests you will be hosting and their preferences. Consider whether you want everyone to stay in the same resort or if you prefer multiple accommodation options. Consult with your Destify wedding concierge, who can provide suggestions based on your requirements and budget.

2. Research and compare resort accommodations: Begin by exploring the accommodation options available at your chosen destination. Look for resorts that offer in line with your vision. Consider factors such as proximity to the venues, amenities, and pricing. Read reviews and inquire with your travel agent to compare the options to narrow down your choices.

3. Secure your accommodations: Once you have identified the best options, it’s time to make reservations. Work with your Destify wedding concierge to book your room or do so directly through your wedding website. Destify can assist in securing the best rates and negotiating terms on your behalf. Remember to inquire about group perks and any special offers or incentives available for wedding bookings.

4. Coordinate travel arrangements: Help your guests take the stress out of travel by providing them with information and guidance. Share details about local airports, and shuttle/transfer options which Destify can assist with. Use your dedicated wedding website or send out a detailed information packet to ensure that everyone has the necessary information to plan their trip smoothly.

5. Stay organized: Keep track of all your bookings, guest reservations, and important details related to accommodations on your wedding website. Create a spreadsheet or use a wedding planning app to stay organized and ensure nothing falls through the cracks otherwise when it comes to wedding planning.

By following this step-by-step guide and leveraging the expertise of Destify, you can confidently plan and secure the best accommodations and travel arrangements for your destination wedding. Taking the time to carefully coordinate these details will ensure that you and your guests have a comfortable and enjoyable experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

While Destify specializes in Caribbean weddings, many couples dream of tying the knot in other exotic locations worldwide. Let’s explore some of these popular wedding destinations.

Destination Wedding in Europe


Italy, a timeless destination rich in history and romance, offers breathtaking landscapes from the rolling hills of Tuscany to the serene waters of Lake Como. Famous for its exquisite cuisine, art, and architecture, Italy sets a picturesque backdrop for a fairytale wedding.


Turkey is a blend of East and West, offering diverse wedding venues from Istanbul’s historic palaces to the unique landscapes of Cappadocia. The country’s rich culture, vibrant bazaars, and stunning coastlines create a magical setting for a wedding.


Spain offers diverse locales from the sun-kissed beaches of Costa del Sol to the historic cities of Barcelona and Seville. Known for its lively festivals, delicious cuisine, and passionate flamenco music, Spain is ideal for a vibrant and culturally rich wedding experience.

Popular Wedding Destinations in Asia


Thailand, the land of smiles, offers a mix of tropical beaches, lush jungles, and rich cultural experiences. From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the tranquil beaches of Phuket and Koh Samui, Thailand caters to a variety of wedding styles.


The Maldives is synonymous with luxury and seclusion. Its overwater bungalows and pristine beaches provide a tranquil and intimate setting, perfect for a romantic wedding and honeymoon.


Bali, known as the ‘Island of the Gods,’ combines mystical charm with stunning natural beauty. Its serene rice paddies, volcanic mountains, and vibrant cultural traditions make Bali an enchanting destination for a wedding.

While we do not offer services in Europe and Asia, we recognize the allure of these destinations and hope to expand our offerings in the future.

Our goal is to provide a diverse range of options for couples, ensuring their dream wedding can become a reality, regardless of the location. For now, we invite you to explore our expertly curated packages in the Caribbean and look forward to the possibility of offering more global destinations in the future.

Designing the Perfect Ceremony and Reception

When it comes to designing the perfect ceremony and reception, there are a few key factors to consider. First and foremost, the venue is of utmost importance. Whether it’s a picturesque outdoor setting, a grandiose ballroom, or a cozy intimate space, the venue sets the tone for the entire event. The choice of decor is also crucial in creating the desired atmosphere. 

From elegant floral arrangements to whimsical lighting installations, the decor should reflect the couple’s style and vision. Additionally, the ceremony itself should be carefully thought out and planned. From the seating arrangement to the order of events, every detail should be considered to ensure a seamless and meaningful experience for the couple and their guests. 

Lastly, the reception should be a time of celebration and enjoyment. From delicious food and drinks to lively entertainment, the reception is a chance for everyone to come together and have a memorable time. Overall, designing the perfect ceremony and reception requires careful attention to detail, creative thinking, and a focus on creating a memorable experience for all involved.

Choosing a Theme that Complements the Destination:

When selecting a theme for your destination wedding, it’s important to consider the location and its unique features. Think about the natural beauty, cultural aspects, and architectural elements of the destination and incorporate them into your wedding theme. For instance, if you’re getting married in Hawaii, a tropical or beach-themed wedding would perfectly complement the surroundings. Alternatively, if you’re tying the knot in a historic location, a vintage or romantic theme would be a great choice.

Incorporating Local Culture into the Wedding:

One of the most exciting aspects of a destination wedding is the opportunity to embrace the local culture. Incorporating elements of the local traditions, customs, and cuisine can make for a truly unforgettable experience. Consider hiring local musicians or dancers to perform during the ceremony or reception, or include local delicacies in your menu. This will not only add a unique touch to your wedding but also give your guests a taste of the destination’s culture.

Tips for Outdoor Destination Ceremonies:

Outdoor destination weddings offer a stunning backdrop for your special day, but they require some additional planning to ensure everything goes smoothly. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Be mindful of the weather: Research the average weather conditions for your destination and choose a season that offers the best chance of good weather. Additionally, have a backup plan in case of unexpected rain or extreme weather conditions.

2. Provide shade and comfort: If you’re having an outdoor ceremony or reception, make sure to provide shade options for your guests. Consider renting umbrellas, providing fans, or hosting the event during a cooler part of the day.

3. Inform guests about appropriate attire: Let your guests know in advance if they need to dress for a specific weather or climate. Provide suggestions on comfortable footwear and clothing choices to make sure they are prepared for the outdoor setting.

Destination Wedding Reception Ideas for English speakers:

If you’re planning a destination wedding where the majority of your guests speak English, it’s essential to ensure smooth communication and inclusion for everyone. Consider the following ideas:

1. Bilingual invitations and programs: Include English translations alongside the local language in your invitations and ceremony programs. This will help your English-speaking guests understand the details of the event.

2. Hire an English-speaking officiant or translator: If the ceremony will be conducted in a language unfamiliar to most of your guests, consider having an English-speaking officiant or a translator to ensure everyone understands and feels included.

3. Provide English menus and signage: Ensure that your English-speaking guests can easily navigate the reception by providing menus and signage in both the local language and English.

Remember, the key to designing the perfect ceremony and reception for your destination wedding is to embrace the unique features of the location and consider the needs and preferences of your guests. By incorporating elements of the destination’s culture, selecting a theme that complements the surroundings and providing thoughtful touches for your guests, you’ll create a truly memorable wedding experience.

Selecting Wedding Venues and Destination Wedding Packages

Once you have secured your accommodations and travel arrangements, it’s time to shift your focus to the next crucial aspect of your destination wedding planning: selecting the perfect wedding venue and vendors.

Managing the Wedding Guest Experience and Activities

A destination wedding is not only about the ceremony and reception. It’s also an opportunity to create lasting memories for your guests. One way to ensure that your loved ones have a truly unforgettable experience is by organizing engaging activities and excursions during their stay.

We understand the importance of keeping your guests entertained and offer a wide range of options to choose from. Whether you want to arrange a group snorkeling trip, a sunset cruise, or a fun-filled beach party, your resort can help you plan the perfect activities that align with your vision and budget. Consult with your Destify wedding concierge to explore the various experiences available at your chosen destination.

Creating a Destination Wedding Timeline

To make the process easier, it’s recommended to send out an itinerary detailing the scheduled activities well in advance. This will give your guests ample time to plan and ensure everyone is on the same page. It’s also a good idea to provide clear instructions and any necessary information, such as transportation arrangements or dress codes, to avoid any confusion.

Beyond the Big Day: Post Destination Wedding Wedding Celebrations and Honeymoon Bliss

Planning Post-Wedding Events

After your destination wedding, it’s time to celebrate with your loved ones back home. Planning post-wedding events is a great way to extend the festivities and keep the wedding spirit alive. 

Here are some ideas for post-wedding celebrations:

Planning Post-Wedding Events

1. Post-Wedding Brunch: A brunch is a popular choice for post-wedding events. It allows you to spend some quality time with your guests before you head off on your honeymoon. Choose a cozy venue and serve a delicious spread of breakfast and lunch options.

2. Welcome Back Party: Throw a welcome back party for your friends and family to celebrate your return from the destination wedding. Decorate the venue with photos from the wedding and share your experiences with your loved ones.

3. Cocktail Party: Host a glamorous cocktail party to toast your new journey as a married couple. Arrange for a signature cocktail or hire a bartender to mix drinks. Add some fun entertainment like a live band or a DJ to keep the party going.

Transitioning Seamlessly into the Honeymoon

Once the post-wedding events are done, it’s time to embark on your honeymoon. Here are some tips for transitioning seamlessly into the honeymoon phase:

1. Take Some Time for Yourself: After the wedding and the post-wedding celebrations, take a day or two to relax and unwind before starting your honeymoon. Use this time to decompress and spend quality time alone with your partner.

2. Pack Smart: Make sure to pack all the essentials for your honeymoon, including appropriate clothing based on your destination and activities planned. Coordinate with your partner to ensure you have everything you need for a smooth and enjoyable honeymoon.

3. Plan Ahead: Research and plan activities and attractions at your honeymoon destination in advance. This will help you make the most of your time and avoid any last-minute stress or confusion.

4. Disconnect from the World: Consider disconnecting from the world during your honeymoon. Turn off your work emails and put your phone on silent. Focus on each other and enjoy the special time together without distractions.

5. Surprise Each Other: Plan surprises for your partner during the honeymoon. It could be a romantic dinner, a couple’s spa treatment, or anything that would make the experience more memorable and special.
