|DESTINATION WEDDINGS ARE GREAT!
Are you trying to save some money on a wedding party and have a nice celebration, then try a destination wedding in the Caribbean or on a Cruise Ship. We handle all the travel and wedding arrangements for the wedding party and your guests. Many resorts and cruise lines have entire departments that just do weddings. Our staff is experienced at this task and we even have a notary on staff to handle documents, We do charge a small fee to handle paperwork and Fedex documents to the islands or cruise lines, but we know the procedures and can keep you on schedule.
Once you announce a destination wedding, we handle your phone calls and book the entire party. We keep track of the guest list and the flight times/days that people are coming and going. We take care of advising people about travel documents and name spellings so you don't have to.
CARIBBEAN WEDDINGS AT A RESORT
Caribbean Weddings are pretty easy in many of the islands. Some of the all-inclusive resorts even offer FREE Weddings with a small paperwork charge. The best thing about all-inclusive weddings is the reception is very inexpensive since your guests book themselves on all-inclusive plan so they are already covered for meals and drinks. We are able to customize those weddings with supplemental catering if you want something special and most resorts require that everybody stay there to attend the wedding. Jamaica and Bahamas are the easiest islands but we also do symbolic weddings in Mexico and Punta Cana where our bride and groom have already tied the knot at the courthouse and want to do something splashy in the islands to celebrate. Island weddings are legal and you get documentation from the island government when you return to the states so they are perfectly legal and recognized everywhere.
CRUISE SHIP WEDDINGS
Contrary to popular belief, the captain does not marry you at Sea. Some of the lines captains do handle vow renewals at Sea. A cruise ship wedding usually happens one of two places:
A. In your home port before you depart. These typically start about 11AM and have a pre-set 2 hour reception afterward. Your guests have the choice of sailing with you or simply departing the ship about 2PM.
B. In a wedding friendly port of call like St. Thomas, there are companies that handle weddings for you. In this instance you (and 20 or 40 of your friends/relatives) get off the ship like everyone else for the daytrip but you go off and get married at some ideal setting like a beach resort with a pre-set reception afterward and then you go get back on the ship.
