A Free Caribbean Wedding – Is it Too Good to Be True?

If you are in the process of planning a destination Caribbean wedding, you may come across information online that says you can get a free standard wedding ceremony. Although usually just the basics are provided, this is still an amazing deal. In fact, it may sound too good to be true. So, is there really such a thing as a free Caribbean wedding? Yes and you can continue reading on for more information.

Question: Who has these free Caribbean weddings?
Answer: Some all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean do.

Question: There has to be strings attached, right?
Answer: Not really. I wouldn’t go as far to call it strings, but must all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean usually have a minimum stay requirement. This stay requirement varies between 3-nights and 5-nights. For longer stays, such as 7-nights or 9-nights, you may get the fees required for legalizing a marriage in a foreign country waived.

Question: But my wedding will only last one day?
Answer: Many brides and grooms wonder how they will meet the minimum stay requirement. It is easy; combine your wedding and honeymoon into one trip. All-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean are jammed packed full of activities. Even on an extended trip, you won’t be bored for a minute. Now, resorts do vary with onsite activities, but you can opt for a resort with a golf course, rock climbing wall, spa, or a beachfront resort with activities that include snorkeling or windsurfing.

Question: What does a free standard wedding include?
Answer: The answer to this question will vary depending on the resort in question. However, common inclusions for free wedding ceremonies include: the marriage license, minister frees, preparation of all legal documents, small number of guest passes or provided witnesses, recorded music, champagne, a decorated wedding area, a wedding cake, bouquet, and a dinner for the bride and groom following the ceremony.

Question: What if I want more than just the basics?
Answer: All-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean provide guests with affordable upgrades. These upgrades can get you the wedding ceremony and reception of your dreams. Upgrades vary from resort to resort, but here are a few commonly offered: in-room hair, in-room make-up, additional floral arrangements, private live band, photography, video services, private limousine tours, and a full wedding reception to follow ceremony.

Question: How can I plan my wedding when I am thousands of miles away?
Answer: The good news, you get a wedding planner. Most resorts even have wedding planners for guests getting nothing more than the basic free wedding! You can be in regular contact with your wedding planner via phone or email to ensure your wedding (even if it is only the free one) is picture perfect.

Question: Will my guests need to stay at the same resort?
Answer: No. If you want your guests to stay elsewhere, so you don’t end up running into Mom and Dad on your honeymoon, they can. As previously stated, a free wedding ceremony comes with a limited number of guest passes for guests staying offsite. Additional passes are available for purchase as an upgrade.

Question: How do I redeem my free standard wedding?
Answer: First, you must choose a resort. Remember, many all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean give guests a free wedding ceremony. Since you are also honeymooning too, choose a resort that has lots of inclusions and onsite activities. Then, make your travel plans. When doing so, you need to contact the resort to let them know of your wedding plans. Most resorts need at least three weeks to get all documents in order. In the event your destination wedding becomes a last minute affair, there may be a last minute charge.

Question: How exactly does a free Caribbean wedding save me money?
Answers: Many ways. First, you get the basics for free. You automatically save money. There are no venue rental fees; your room reservations take care of this. There are no additional travel fees; your airline reservations get you not only to your wedding, but your honeymoon too. Moreover, you stay at an all-inclusive resort. Your stay should include food, snacks, drinks, tip, and some forms of onsite entertainment. While the costs are higher at first, you usually walk away with the best value for your money.
