Why you should get married in the Caribbean

The perfect place to tie the knot

The Caribbean has long since been a favourite for couples wanting to tie the knot… but what makes it so great? Keep on reading to find out why we think you should get married in the Caribbean.

The stunning views

This one’s probably kind of obvious, but still worth mentioning. The Caribbean islands have some of the most picturesque surroundings in the entire world, such as Bathsheba Beach (Barbados), Blue Lagoon (Jamaica) and The Pitons (St Lucia) to name but a few.

The clear blue waters and white sand beaches make for some gorgeous beach wedding photos and the local architecture is equally as stunning for those wanting a more traditional wedding. What’s more, the constant warm, sunny weather means that you can dress however you like without the fear of needing to layer up. Your wedding will look like it’s straight out of a magazine.

The good vibes

Maybe it’s the sun, or maybe just the people, but the Caribbean has some of the most enjoyable and laid-back vibes on Earth. We’re calling it. And what could be better than a fantastic mood to go with your big day?

Wherever you go, there is that unmistakably Caribbean feel that simply uplifts you and makes the day that much better. If you needed a reason as to why you should have a destination wedding in the Caribbean, this is it.

The pamper opportunities

There are more than enough spas, wellness retreats and pampering facilities to take up your entire holiday time. Many of the spas are world-renowned and offer spectacular views to add to the experience.

These facilities give you that added bit of luxury that you are well entitled to considering the occasion. Better yet, many of the spas have packages to take advantage of, which you could even continue on through your honeymoon (win-win!)

The convenience

The Caribbean’s title as a leading wedding destination means that the vast majority of scenic locations are well-equipped to host a wedding. You can therefore receive expert advice from wedding pros, which will make the whole process run a lot more smoothly. And who wouldn’t want that?

The food

We lied earlier. If there was any one reason to get married in the Caribbean, THIS is it. Imagine being able to indulge in authentic Caribbean cuisine at your wedding - callaloo, ackee, saltfish fritters, jerk chicken… we know you can get some of these outside of the Caribbean, but you just can’t beat the authentic Caribbean recipes and ingredients.

The exclusivity

When you have a destination wedding in a far distant country, a lot of people aren’t going to be able to make it. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Unless you really want a big wedding with a 100+ guest list, imagine how lovely it would be to have just the most important people there.

Think about it. How many people would turn up seemingly unannounced if you held your wedding back home? Distant friends, 2nd, 3rd and 4th cousins, plus ones that you’ve never even met… it all sounds nice until you think about how much it will cost you to actually have them there. Want a buffet? It has to feed 100. Want an open bar? Forget about it.

Your wedding is about you and your partner, not anybody else. A wedding in the Caribbean will let you keep this moment special by only sharing it with those that you truly care about. And you won’t feel bad about only inviting those select few because the travel is such a commitment for guests.

Now that you know why you should get married in the Caribbean…

…Why not go for it? We can’t think of a better place to tie the knot, no matter which island you choose. Have a browse of our various Caribbean holiday destinations and see if our low prices can tempt you.
