Where to get married?

Your choices are usually in 2 camps. Stay close and homely in your local church or an away wedding. I did attend a lovely wedding once in Kent at a manor someplace, which I remember for the lake and spectacular sunshine. If you are considering an away wedding then why stop at Kent? Go for that tropical wedding on the beach?
I often wonder what draws me to the Caribbean and it must be the same things that I am enjoying considering for a wedding. The beach shots that will look amazing on the canvas picture, orchids and amazingly beautiful skies. Having a big dress in the heat would put me off a bit, but the draw is too much.

Getting married with your feet in the sand!

The locations people pick to get married in the Caribbean are Barbados, Bahamas (often for the Americans) Antigua and Jamaica. The USVI’s are also a great choice for Americans since there are many flights to get the family out there and the convenience of having no currency worries and cell coverage is a bonus especially around a wedding.
Antigua is often rated highly since it has developed a speciality for weddings with some of the better beaches in the Caribbean there is so much choice of resort and the services. You can’t do better than the Antigua wedding. Resorts such as blue waters and Sandals operate here but you might like to look at a more boutique resort for a more private affair.

Of course the cost of a wedding is an important factor but it might surprise you that having a wedding in Antigua can come in cheaper than some weddings back home. As soon as you mention the word wedding prices seem to triple! If money is no object then look no further than Jumby Bay whose resort sits on a most picturesque island it and Carlisle bay are the most exclusive places and most expensive resorts in Antigua. Sandals has excellent wedding packages available.

If you are looking at the Bahamas then search on Nassau and Paradise Island for the best resorts and spots for the big day.
Nevis not yet mentioned is a lesser known spot to get married in. The four seasons resort has some stunning backdrops and an amazing calm beautiful beach.
