Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has perhaps become the star of the Caribbean islands when it comes to economical destination weddings, amongst new builds and lavish resorts splayed across some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Just take a look at the newer properties along Bavaro Beach, known for gorgeous ceremony venues and crystalline white powdery sands. With new properties comes impeccable service too, and resorts outbid each other with great rates and personalized service every couple will appreciate.

There are plenty of top 2020 destination wedding resorts in the Dominican Republic to choose from below. You can choose to stay at your resort, which can feature everything needed to keep guests entertained, like fullscale nightclubs and exciting casinos. Or for the more adventurous, venture off-site to take part in enticing excursions, like snorkeling, rum tastings, or a visit to the many world-class golf courses that dot the coastline.

Caribbean Islands

The many Caribbean islands offer a more intimate experience for your destination wedding of 20 or more guests. The dots of tropical landmasses sprinkled throughout the Caribbean ocean offer separately owned countries with their individual island cultures and European influences. Snorkeling and scuba diving takes front and center here, where guests can swim amongst sunken pirate ships and see colorful schools of fish that can only be found in these waters.

Also on offer is a more relaxed vibe, even though the price tag may be higher as well. Planning wedding couples should note that not as many flight options are available to the smaller Caribbean Islands like to the more popular destinations of Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. But with the price tag comes an unforgettable destination wedding, in a much more unique setting then the larger destinations can share.

Central America

Central America, and more importantly Costa Rica, is one of the hottest wedding destinations for 2020. This is because more couples are seeking adventurous locations for their ceremony, and want more than just a pretty beach to explore during the downtime. Costa Rica offers it all when it comes to this, from dark sandy shores ideal for a wedding venue to rainforests and hiking opportunities aplenty.

The Central American country is also known for its friendly locals and unique cuisines. Wedding parties of 20 or more guests can plan for unique excursions directly from the hotel lobby, and can plan for zipline tours, rainforest sky bridge walks, or visits to natural spas. Arguably the hottest excursion is a hike to see splendid views of the Arenal Volcano, lying active but dormant, and providing a dominant focal point for vacation photos. But where to stay? Follow below as we finish up our top destination wedding resorts for 2020 in Costa Rica.
