4 of the top destinations for a Caribbean Wedding

Many people are choosing to take to the sky for a unforgettable experience by getting married in the Caribbean. It’s definitely something worth considering as destination weddings can save you money and provide you with endless memories. With morning weddings, sunset weddings and even night weddings, this experience can exceed your romantic expectations.

Below are a few words about each country to describe why getting married in the Caribbean is so highly rated!

Jamaica 

Jamaica is in the north of the Caribbean, and where you can enjoy the glorious glow of its sunsets, relax on its beautiful white sandy beaches, and marvel at its verdant mountains and glittering waterfalls. Visiting this friendly island with its wonderful sense of fun, cannot fail to relax you.

The spirit of Jamaica is irrepressible, and as rich as the lilt of its local patois and its reggae rhythms, for which the island remains famous.

Although it is the third largest island in the Caribbean, tourist hotels are mainly found in three areas, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril. Montego Bay, Jamaica’s second largest city, is set on a large and beautiful beach, Ocho Rios provides a great base to explore Dunn’s River Falls and the Blue Mountains, whilst Negril offers some of the best coast on the island.

The island is so large, a two-centre stay is recommended to explore it fully.

Barbados

Barbados is an island of contrasting landscapes. With its eastern side exposed to the Atlantic, dramatic views and scenery abound. To the west, however, on the mellow Caribbean side, are miles and miles of white, coral-sand beaches, and it is here that many of the island’s hotels are found.

Barbados derives a great deal of its culture from its colonial history, and is sometimes dubbed ’Little England’.

Today, the island has a laid-back charm, and dances to the many different rhythms of reggae, calypso, soca and pan music. Barbados is more commercially developed than many other islands, with greater possibilities for nightlife in the local restaurants and bars.

This is especially so in the south, where local seafood restaurants must be sampled. While on the island, visit the historic plantation houses, or try an exhilarating water sport, such as windsurfing or reef diving.

getting married in the Caribbean - Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas and Antigua

Antigua

One of the premier destinations in the Caribbean, Antigua is the sunniest of the eastern islands. It boasts a massive 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, making it an idyllic haven to relax in.

With its maritime heritage dating back to Nelson’s era, today it offers some of the best Caribbean sailing, and annually hosts its famous sailing week. Its stunning coastline is surrounded by an almost unbroken coral reef, and is also home to a fascinating collection of shipwrecks and a unique network of underwater caves.

It is little wonder why divers are drawn to Antigua! Visitors also love the capital city of St Johns, whose skyline is dominated by the magnificent baroque towers of its cathedral, and which offers lively shopping and dining plus a vibrant farmers market.

Rich in culture, history and Caribbean charm, Antigua is a ‘must’ to visit.

The Bahamas

The Islands of The Bahamas is a 100,000-sq-mile archipelago that extends over 500 miles of the clearest water in the world. 700 islands, including uninhabited cays and large rocks, total an estimated land area of 5,382 sq miles, and register a highest land elevation of 206 ft.

Most notable, however, is that each island has its own diversity that continues beyond geography, carrying through to the heart of The Bahamas, the Bahamian people.

Nassau is the home of the Bahamian national capital, New Providence, and is the bustling hub that traces its heritage back to the shipwrecking days of the legendary pirate Blackbeard. Prized for its sheltered harbour, the city made history and preserved it beautifully in colonial mansions, cathedrals, 18th-century fortresses and a Queen’s Staircase whose 66 steps lead to a view not to be missed.

The 685 acres of Paradise Island are connected to the city of Nassau by two 600-foot bridges. The island is developed almost exclusively to accommodate travellers, with resorts, hotels, restaurants, shops, a golf course, an aquarium, and a casino rounding out the amenities.
