Destination weddings in Jamaica are picture-perfect. Couples can choose from celebrating in one of the island’s most popular areas to give guests a wide choice of activities to enjoy or opt for a lesser-travelled escape for a more exclusive feel.

We admit, there’s one problem with planning a destination wedding in Curaçao: your Big Day will have a lot of competition for being the highlight of your trip! You and your loved ones can spend every day exploring a new side of the island, from street murals to salt lands, caves to hidden coves!

We Love Planning Weddings at These Curacao Resorts

  • Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino: Fewer than 200 guestrooms and suites mean you’ll have plenty of space to spread out in this beautiful resort. Since it’s dog-friendly, you can even ask Fido to be your ring-bearer!

5. Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia is the perfect setting for luxury weddings. It’s quieter than most Caribbean destinations, extremely romantic, and a little more far-flung, but worth every kilometre.

We Love Planning Weddings at These Saint Lucia Resorts

  • Serenity at Coconut Bay Resort: When you have a small wedding, you can’t beat the romance of a private ceremony aboard a catamaran
  • Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort: Many of Saint Lucia’s resorts are adults-only, but this family-oriented property stands out from the crowd and features a remarkable choice of venue for any wedding size
