It's important to get professional advice. Most Caribbean wedding destinations offer wedding planners
who are more than happy to customise packages to give your wedding a more personal touch. As well
as travel arrangements and locations you need to consider things such as what kind of ceremony and
reception you would prefer.

Wedding Planning Tips

The beaches in the Caribbean varies in color,so doing some research will enable you to choose the
colour sand for your special day. Some places have white and pink sandy beaches while others have
beige and black sand. Perhaps you could colour coordinate the sand to your wedding theme.
Photography and videography
Photographers and videographers are important factors with destination weddings so you should ensure
that these are pre booked well in advance. If you want your photographs to look stunning then you need
to decide which setting to hold your ceremony. You could hold it on the beach, in the grounds of the
hotel, on the cliff tops or perhaps in a garden with a sea view. An expert in wedding arranging can help
you create the perfect package so that the entire wedding party will be happy.

A laid back wedding would probably feature you and your guests sipping cocktails as the sun sets and
perhaps a hot and cold barbeque in the terrace of the hotel grounds. This type of reception is better
suited if you prefer a more relaxed, casual occasion. Alternatively, you may decide to hold a formal
reception with a three course dinner at one of the many historical properties that the Caribbean has to
offer. If there are no guests at your wedding then you could simply take a romantic sunset cruise on the
evening of your wedding day.
Have a Plan
Weddings in the Caribbean requires time and attention to ensure that you have a day to remember as
well as the holiday of a lifetime. You can enjoy the hospitality of the friendly locals, experiment with
local cuisine and drink speciality rum cocktails. The breath taking scenery will give you photographs to
be proud of and the guaranteed warm weather will remove any worries about the marriage taking place
outdoors. It will cost you less than a traditional wedding and if you hire an expert wedding planner, this
will eliminate any stress.
Family and Friends
One of the downsides of destination weddings is that not everyone you invite will be able to afford or
physical able to attend a wedding in another country. This means you may end up spending your
special day without the people who are closest to you. This is an important factor to most couples so
test the water first to see who can afford to attend your wedding.
Another thing that you may miss is the religious side to a wedding. If you have strong religious beliefs
then perhaps you need to consider whether a church, temple etc is more appropriate to you.
