Nothing says romance more than the Caribbean, but with so many islands to choose from – which is the ideal location for you to exchange rings and say, “I do”?
The great thing about getting hitched on one of the many Caribbean islands is that you can combine your wedding and honeymoon all into one, and save on all the practical hassle that comes with organizing both. Here’s a mini guide to inspire you to marry on a sandy beach under the palm trees.
Antigua is a wonderful, idyllic island sporting 365 stunning beaches and an ideal destination for those looking to take a boat out. If you’re looking to celebrate your big day at an all-inclusive and high-end resort, then look no further. The best spots to get married on Antigua are Jumpy Bay, a luxury resort located on a private 300-acre island just off the coast, rich in natural beauty.
Another great location is the Jolly Beach Resort. This is the largest on Antigua, and offers all-inclusive stays on the beach, and the great thing is the more guests you bring, the more the resort throws in for free!
The Bahamas make up a collection of 700 islands, and offer something for everyone’s taste, whether you’re looking to rent your own island or go to one of the big mega-resorts. You can find lively places like Nassau and Paradise Island or something more laidback and remote like the Exumas.
The lush green island of Jamaica is a unique place in itself, with its laid-back atmosphere and rich culture. The island has so much to offer those looking to get married from beautiful beach weddings, a traditional affair in one of the big grand houses from the colonial era or simply head off the beaten track. It’s the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a non-traditional wedding experience and there is just so much you can do there.
Aruba is a popular place for weddings, however there are some laws stating that you might need to file the paperwork in a town hall. But while you might legally tie the knot in a less romantic setting, have no fear, you can still celebrate with that perfect beach wedding with all your friends and family.
A final destination to consider is St. Lucia, which is famed for its natural beauty and is a long-time favorite with brides and grooms. To make things run smoothly, try to find a wedding planner on the island to take care of everything for you.
