Destination Weddings: Why They Are Better In The CaribbeanDestination Weddings: Why They Are Better In The Caribbean

Have you always dreamed of having a destination wedding? If so, you might be going back and forth on that destination. After all, there are many great destinations around the world that are perfect for your big day. With that said, you are encouraged to closely examine the Caribbean. Destination wedding are better in the Caribbean and here is why:

The Destinations: Technically, you have lots of great destinations to choose from. The Caribbean is a general term used to describe a group of islands. Two popular choices for destination weddings include Jamaica and the Bahamas, but you have a wide range of other choices as well.

As for making your exact destination choice, it might be hard to decide. The Bahamas, the island of Jamaica, and other destinations have great hotels. Moreover, you will find that the weather is similar throughout the Caribbean. Wherever you choose to have your destination wedding, you will likely be greeted with warm, sunny, and tropical weather. It might be best to examine resorts, wedding venues, and so forth to find that perfect fit and then make your destination decision from there.

All-Inclusive Resorts: The Caribbean is well-known for its great selection of all-inclusive resorts. These resorts are designed to basically have everything you need right on site. Many all-inclusive Caribbean resorts will meet your wedding needs right on site! In fact, some have special travel packages for brides and grooms! Even better yet is the fact that some all-inclusive Caribbean resorts enable guests to get a free standard wedding ceremony when they meet the stay requirement.

Planning destination weddings at an all-inclusive resort has a number of benefits. Most often, you are paired with a wedding planner. This wedding planner can ease the stresses that often come along with destination weddings. After all, you might be planning a wedding from thousands of miles away! You will be able to collaborate with your wedding planner via phone or email to ensure your special day truly is special.

Beach Weddings: Of course you can get married anywhere you'd like. With that said, remember that you are getting married in the beautiful tropical Caribbean. This is the perfect destination for beach weddings. There is no more of a beautiful backdrop than the white sandy beaches and beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean; talk about picture perfect (literally).

As just stated above, you can have your wedding ceremony wherever you'd like. If the beach isn't your style, check with your resort. Also as mentioned above, many all-inclusive Caribbean resorts have special travel packages for destination weddings. At these resort, you are likely to have a choice as for the location of your ceremony. This might be an in-house chapel, the garden, a banquet room, or along the beach.

Honeymoon and Wedding in One: When it comes to getting married, you not only have the ceremony and wedding reception to plan, but the honeymoon as well. That is another benefit of getting married in the beautiful Caribbean; you can combine your wedding and honeymoon into one. When staying at an all-inclusive Caribbean resort that has a host of onsite eateries, activities, and services for you to choose from (many of which is included in the cost of your stay), you won't feel as if you are short changing yourself.

Moreover, combining your honeymoon and destination wedding into one trip will help ensure that you meet the resort's minimum stay requirement for a free standard wedding ceremony. Don't be turned off by the "standard" part either. All good resorts have affordable upgrade packages available, like should you wish to have a reception onsite as well.

As you can see, there are a host of reasons why destination weddings are just better in the Caribbean. There aren't many destinations in the world where you are pretty much guaranteed warm, tropical, and sunny weather. Also, where else can you find affordable luxury resorts where you can have your wedding ceremony, reception, and honeymoon all in one trip! If you have yet to decide on a destination for your upcoming wedding, I encourage you to examine all-inclusive Caribbean resorts today; you should like what you see.
