Weddings Under $5000!
Thinking about a Destination Wedding??

I recently added an example of wedding packages at an all inclusive to my email list and it went over really well. The overall response I got was GIVE ME MORE. You asked, and this post is me answering 🙂 I am even forcing myself to dream on a budget by focusing on Weddings Under $5000 *Edit: This was originally published in 2017 and some of these have been changed to Update for 2019*

Super Quick Intro in case you stumbled on this post from Pinterest – my name is Kara and I am a Destination Wedding Travel Agent. I am also a former Destination Bride – so I understand the struggle of trying to keep to a budget and the lack of information online!! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to help!

One more thing – Have you downloaded my 9 step guide for Canadians planning destination weddings yet ??  Fill out the form below and I will send it to your email right away !  It’s the perfect starting point, I promise.

5 Wedding Packages Under $5000

 

These aren’t all the wedding packages that are under $5000 (not even close!) but I hope that it leaves you feeling inspired to start your own planning! All of the packages below are in USD so I have cut it off at $4000USD so they all come up to under $5000 Canadian (based on the exchange rate at the time of writing  edited to add UGH! our exchange rate is even worse now 🙁 Technically this post is officially 5 wedding packages under $5300).

Wedding Packages Under $5000 are considered “budget” in the wedding world but I think you can see below that you get a lot more for your money when you leave your home town.

 

Do you already know you are ready to start planning? You can schedule a phone consultation with me here.

 

For each resort below, I have shared each resorts’ best value package (in my opinion). Most of them have a less expensive (or free!) package and a more expensive package. Again, feel free to contact me for more details if one of the resorts catches your eye! These packages all include a private reception (if you have already had a consultation with me, you know how important this is haha!)

I have broken these 5 resorts into 5 categories:

  • The Best for “Is There Something that is Budget Friendly and Brag Worthy?”
  • Best for “I Don’t Want To See Any Kids at my Wedding”
  • The Best for “I Have Every Age Group Coming to my Wedding – Infants to Grandparents”
  • Best for “I Want Something Different – maybe somewhere I have never been?”
  • The Best for “I Want a Week Long Adults-Only Party. This is going to be a CELEBRATION!”

*** I am calling these my TOP 5 UNDER $5000 but of course every wedding couple is different so these may not be the best choices for you. If you would like some personal recommendations, the easiest way is to schedule a phone consult (it’s free, don’t worry) and we can chat about what you want for your wedding day. You can also use my contact form if email works better for you – I just find phone calls go a little quicker***
