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? 

 

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!”
