Find Tropical Bliss in The Caribbean

Nestled amidst turquoise seas and pristine beaches, the Caribbean exudes romance at every turn. Picture exchanging vows under swaying palms, with the gentle lull of the ocean as your soundtrack. Some of our favorite places in this stunning part of the world include Aruba and the Dominican Republic.

Located off the coast of Venezuela, Aruba is a quintessential Caribbean paradise complete with dazzling azure water and more than 20 miles of white-sand coastline. With world-famous beaches, tropical weather year-round, and numerous world-class venues to choose from, Aruba destination weddings are truly storybook events.

The Dominican Republic is an equally outstanding alternative to Aruba. It’s much larger, so there’s more to see and do, and has more venues to choose from. Home to those trademark Caribbean white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters too, finding the perfect backdrop for Dominican Republic destination weddings is easy!

There are 20 Sandals Resorts spread over 10 Caribbean islands, and you can find Beaches Resorts in Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands. These award-winning venues provide luxury as standard, so it’s no surprise that Beaches and Sandals Resorts destination weddings continue to surge in popularity. The combination of breathtaking scenery and unparalleled service ensures an unforgettable celebration for you and your loved ones.

Romance Meets Adventure in Mexico

Let us put it simply — Mexico is a dream destination for a wedding! This life-loving country is full of color and energy; its culture and history are equally fun and fascinating. And do we even need to mention the food? But perhaps most importantly, Mexico is home to a diverse range of beautiful locations that are ideal for weddings.

The Yucatan Peninsula — home to Cancún — has amazing year-round weather and sun-kissed beaches perfect for exchanging vows. Just some of the best beaches for your consideration include:

  • Cancún Beach
  • Riviera Maya
  • Puerto Morelos
  • Playa Maroma
  • Playa del Carmen
  • Akumal
  • Tulum
  • Isla Mujeres
  • Holbox

But your options don’t stop at the beach. Other popular places for Mexico destination weddings include the vibrant streets of Mexico City and the mountainous region of Oaxaca.
