When it comes to their wedding day, some brides want a pull-out-all-the-stops celebration with hundreds of guests, an elaborate gown, and the linen-and-crystal look at every table. After all (they reason), this is their big day and it only comes around once.
But maybe you’re a bride, or the parent of a bride-to-be, who wants a simpler approach in a spectacular island setting instead. You don’t need all the bells and whistles, just the company of a few good friends and your closest family members as you take your places on a powder-soft beach and repeat your vows with a view of the Caribbean Sea. Afterward, you might dine on local lobster, dance to the sound of steel drums, and steal away to stroll on the beach with your beloved. And oh, those photo ops!
Hideaways Travel Services can help you put together that perfect, laid-back destination wedding—or vow-renewal ceremony, if that’s where you are in life—at any of our recommended Caribbean hideaways. Just remember: Some islands require a short “residency” period (for instance, in Aruba and Jamaica it’s two days, and in the Bahamas it’s one) before you legally can be married. Others have very relaxed policies regarding residency and legal documents, including Barbados, St. Lucia, and the Cayman Islands.
Here are a few of our favorite island hotels and resorts where the living is easy and the weddings are tropical, breezy, and as relaxed as you like.
