9 Caribbean Beach Wedding Destinations We Love
Turks & Caicos
There’s something about just hearing the words “Turks & Caicos” that evokes a sense of luxury. It’s got one of the most beautiful landscapes of all the Caribbean islands and a lot of gorgeous resorts to choose from as well.
This spot is more private as well and because of that one of the most expensive of choices on the list.
Aruba has the ability to evoke a sense of wonder and excitement as well. You don’t have to worry about it being under “hurricane” territory even throughout the season since it lies outside of the belt, and it offers just as stunning views as some of the other locations.
There’s a lot to the Cayman Islands that people may not know firsthand. Aside from its beauty, it has a host of fun, touristy things to do and interesting history behind it as well.
The beach, the turtle farms, and even Stingray City could be a part of your guests’ itinerary while you and the new beau continue to relax and unwind at the cream-colored beaches.
If you want to infuse a bit of extra culture and personality into your Caribbean destination wedding, why not use Puerto Rico as your one and only? It’s U.S. territory, making a lot of essential elements easier on the wedding planners and the food here is off-the-charts delicious!
There’s something extra special about the beaches here. There’s so much beauty that’s been untouched and you’ll love how much the locals love a bit of calypso music in the air. For a more offbeat choice, consider looking further into this Caribbean spot.
St. Barts is known for its beautiful blend of tropical locales and European flair. You’ll hear a lot of French-speaking natives on the island and that influence take over in the shops and restaurants as well. We love the infusion of the culture here!
This spot is a bit quieter than the others and hasn’t bought into the tourists traps just yet. It has a more natural, indigenous island quality about it that attracts its visitors and may make your getaway celebration that much better.
Quick tip: there’s a glorious music scene here that you’ll want to eat right up.
Everyone loves the Bahamas, right?! It’s just a quick flight from Florida and easier on the wallet than some of the other destinations. If you shop around right, you’ll find resort and wedding deals held all year long too.
There are essential 700 islands to choose from here, so, happy shopping – there’s truly something for everyone’s taste, guests and wallet size here!
One of the most sought-after and popular of the bunch, Jamaica has a lot of resort locations to choose from – and most will help you plan your celebration and make each step of the way that much easier.
This location has a laid-back vibe that will help both you and your guests relax throughout the entire event. Just don’t forget to add some reggae music to the reception song list!
