So youve found that perfect someone, now how about the wedding venue? Destination weddings are a growing luxury travel trend, with the Caribbean leading the way. Before you say I do take a look at our top 10 Caribbean wedding tips. 1) A Caribbean Welcome: start your wedding weekend on a fun note with a casual outdoor get together. While the chef grills up a BBQ feast, your guests can mingle over rum punch cocktails. 2) Make It Your Own: crazy about sailing? Plan an afternoon on a chartered boat for you and your friends. Sharing your favourite activities is a great way to include your guests. 3) Take It Outside: make the most of your tropical or beachside setting with an outdoor reception. As the sun goes down just a few simple lights and candles are often all you need. 4) Chill Out: planning a wedding doesnt need to be stressful, especially when you are working with an experienced villa team. From the flowers to the food, their local knowledge will make planning your wedding a breeze. 5) Schedule Some Downtime: ensure you and your guests stay rested and relaxed by leaving a little room between group activities for everyone to do their own thing. 6) Add a Local Touch: let the setting influence your choice of music, signature cocktail or even your wedding colors. 7) Keep It Simple: with such beautiful surroundings, youll need far fewer decorations than in a traditional hall. 8) Ask Around: marriage license requirements vary from island to island. Speak to your concierge or wedding planner for details and avoid any last minute surprises. 9) Capture the Moment: have your photographer arrive early to scout out the best photo opportunities and Caribbean backdrops. 10) Unwind: the best part of planning a Caribbean Wedding is the built-in honeymoon! If youd like to plan a special surprise for your bride or groom, your concierge can help with that too. Nick Guezen is Project and Integration Director at Luxury Retreats.
