The Caribbean is Made Up of 26 Countries

When choosing a destination for your wedding and honeymoon, I believe you can’t go wrong with one of the Caribbean islands. Working with a travel agent, you should be able to narrow down which of the 26 countries would be the best fit for your vision.



First, let me admit that I know I am using Caribbean a little bit loosely on this page. Technically, a few of these islands are not technically part of the Caribbean. However, they are islands in the same region so I need a place to talk about them. Whether you want to kitesurf in Aruba or visit the Cayman Turtle Farm there is something for you. The Caribbean is known for its rich culture and gorgeous beaches so you can almost guarantee a great vacation (or wedding or honeymoon).



A few islands sit outside the hurricane belt so if you plan on doing some travelling during hurricane season I would strongly consider destinations where your travel is less likely to be affected. Because many wedding couples choose hurricane season to help keep costs down for their guests, using a travel agent becomes even more important. If the horrendous hurricane season of 2017 taught us anything, is that you need to be prepared for anything.


Cruising in the Caribbean


If you want to make the most of your trip by visiting a few different islands, you should strongly consider a cruise. Cruises are a great way to maximize your vacation time and makes travel really easy. To read more about the benefits of cruising you can check out my cruising experiences page here. Choosing a cruise can also be a very affordable option if you are considering multiple destinations. Instead of flying from island to island which can add up very quickly, cruising is a great way to get from point A to point B.

When you go cruising, you enjoy your visit from Orlando to the Bahamas and then Jamaica or wherever else the itinerary you chose might take you. No time is wasted travelling as you will usually be sleeping while the boat is moving (or dancing at the cruise bar or lounging by the pool). Cruises are also a great option if you only have a long weekend to get away. Just fly down to Miami and enjoy one of the many 3-4 day cruises!


Caribbean Destination Weddings


Like I mentioned above, if you are set on getting married in the summertime, you may want to choose an island that sits outside of the hurricane belt. You can almost guarantee a rain-free wedding day (almost!). Legal wedding restrictions are going to vary greatly from island to island so for more information if would be best to contact me (use my contact form here) and I can help you narrow down your island options. These destinations are sure to give your guests a WOW factor as they are definitely less common and it will likely be most of your guest’s first visit (don’t worry though, they will love it).
