Wedding destinations are varied, but there are several that are very popular among brides. Some of the best wedding destinations around the globe include Hawaii, Mexico, and even the Caribbean; such as Saint Lucia and Jamaica. Certainly, the Caribbean islands make it rather easy for any guest to enjoy their own unique and captivating scenic landscapes. This is why they are some of the more popular wedding destinations, particularly for those looking for an exotic wedding setting.
Couples who are thinking about the Caribbean can also consider resorts, because they offer a lot in terms of variety and facilities. Some of the Caribbean’s best resorts are located right on the beach. Others have lush tropical gardens and beautiful courtyards with indoor ski slopes. But then, all you need to do to enjoy a Caribbean destination wedding is to find a location with a great view of the ocean. There are many different options when it comes to Caribbean destination wedding packages. The resorts can be considered the core of the whole process, and couples will certainly want to book the most exclusive or beautiful ones in order to enjoy the kind of extra facilities that are offered.
For the truly adventurous couple, Caribbean destination weddings can also take place off the coast of St. Lucia, which offers a breathtaking backdrop for a marriage ceremony. Or a marriage between two uninhibited people from opposing sides of the globe might be just the thing for a truly exotic and once-in-a-lifetime experience. For example, a Caribbean wedding might take place between a group of American and Russian newlyweds, which would probably involve some high-altitude ballooning and beautiful views of the earth. Then, of course, there are all the possibilities that come with Caribbean marriage ceremonies, including everything from a simple service at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro to an afternoon of golf on one of those remote Caribbean islands.
In terms of actual locations where couples can exchange vows, there are many Caribbean countries that offer some of the best beaches in the world. Whether you’re getting married on the beach or surrounded by the green mountains of Jamaica, you can be sure that your guests will enjoy every minute of it. Several Caribbean wedding packages include visits to Jamaica, as well as other nearby islands such as Barbados, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and many others. Many couples prefer the beaches of Jamaica, which makes it a popular choice. In fact, couples who wed in the Caribbean can typically select from a number of different Caribbean beaches for their wedding, because there are so many beautiful beaches to choose from.
Another option for Caribbean destination weddings is to get married on the beach front, in one of the numerous caicos (denotes). Caicos, which is Spanish for “bay,” are man-made soft scrub lands located in the Southern Caribbean off the coast of Venezuela, Cuba, and other neighboring countries. For centuries, the peoples of these Latin American nations have used the land around their homes as a place to farm, build houses, hunt, gather wild foods, plant crops, and practice various types of traditional gardening. Throughout the years, many of these caicos were used as wedding venues. Couples who get married in the caicos can still enjoy the beautiful scenery, lush vegetation, historic ruins, and local culture of these cultures, in addition to the unique blend of tropical atmosphere and traditional hospitality of the Caribbean.
When it comes to getting married in the Caribbean, it is important to consider the weather conditions at the time of your planned flight. The wind and temperature will play a huge role in determining the optimal beachfront location for your destination wedding, as will the season. The best time to get married in the Caribbean is from May to October, but there are plenty of resorts that are still open for bookings well into late September or early October. If you book a flight to the Caribbean in the spring or fall, you may find that the winds in some areas are too strong to support wedding ceremonies. So, to get the best time and weather for your trip, plan your trip for the off-season.
