A Caribbean destination wedding is ideal for clients looking for a more unique travel experience. For instance, due to its proximity from the United States, the Caribbean Islands offer fewer direct flights, resulting in more expensive travel and resort bookings (particularly on the smaller islands such as Turks and Caicos and St. Lucia).
What those flights yield, however, is a tropical destination wedding experience like no other, complete with dazzling oceanfront adventures and venues that’ll elevate your big day.
Barcelo Aruba offers up a cocktail of local flavors and luxuries, offering guests a cultural tincture of Spanish, Danish, and nearby Aruban flairs, creating a distinctive setting for a destination wedding unlike anywhere else; we hope you came thirsty for this cultural cocktail!
There’s perhaps nowhere more glamorous for a destination wedding than the St. James Club in Antigua, featuring panoramic terraces, modern suites and villas, scented gardens, and breathtaking beaches, all of which are suitably romantic.
Getting married on a beautiful tropical island might make you think it’s a bank-breaking endeavor. But you’d be wrong! You’ll say “I do” to your special someone on a white sand beach, or under the shade of a tropical gazebo… all while staying on budget.
All inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean Islands offer competitive and economical wedding packages chock full of exclusive amenities. Room rates remain competitive to other tropical locales as well.
The only caveat to your costs will come with your flights. Destify always suggests being mindful in booking flights out to the Caribbean. Be ready to search for the best rates 6+ months out from your date, and to book early. Flights tend to fill fast, and we want to ensure you have that window seat!
With a flower in your hair, and the sea breeze in the air… walking the aisle in the Caribbean comes with amazing amenities and perks when choosing destination wedding packages. Packages range in price to meet your wedding budget, but provide incredible value. Entry-level wedding packages will most likely include your wedding planner, symbolic ceremony, bouquet, basic décor, and often room perks or anniversary nights.
As you move up the ladder in price, the exclusive inclusions become that much more enthralling. Take the ‘Dreams Ultimate’ all inclusive wedding package as an example: it includes a private cocktail hour, dinner reception, and live Mariachi trio!
