Destination Weddings can help take the stress out of planning, with customizable packages ranging from classically simple to gloriously lavish. Special touches like tropical flower-draped wooden arches, floating candle centerpieces, and even the releasing of butterflies set the stage for your special day, while photographers, musicians, and hair stylists are often available at your request. Many resorts employ professional wedding planners who will deal with all the small details – arranging transportation, acting as a liaison between vendors, and ensuring everything is set up before the ceremony. All you have to do is show up, say your vows, and have a wonderful time; the rest is taken care of!
MAKE YOUR CEREMONY ONE OF A KIND
Wed in blissful solitude with just you, your fiancé, and the rippling of the ocean, or invite all your friends and family to kick up their heels for a week on a tropical island paradise. From an intimate ceremony and candlelit dinner-for-two, to a blowout celebration with seating for 40, make your special day as inclusive – or as exclusive – as you like. And the party doesn’t have to start at the altar! With many resorts offering group discounts, you can invite your loved ones to spend time at the resort before the ceremony. Make everyone a part of the fun – hit the golf course with dad, enjoy a pampering day at the spa with mom, introduce extended families over a heartfelt welcome dinner, and hit the clubs with your friends to party after dark.
WHAT COMES AFTER
What’s more, destination weddings make it easy to combine your special day and your honeymoon into one gloriously extended celebration. Destinations from the Caribbean to Mexico to the South Pacific make it easy to say “I do” in tropical settings – directly on the beach, at an on-site chapel, or even in an intimate ceremony in your suite – and settle in for a week of exquisite pampering at the all-inclusive resort of your dreams. Whatever your style, wherever your location, a destination wedding is sure to create memories that will last long after the last “thank you” note has been mailed.
