Our wedding blog has been featuring all things that you’d need to know about Destination Weddings in all-inclusive destinations.

After all, there’s nothing better than having a picture perfect wedding by the beach!

Choosing an all-inclusive destination for your wedding is definitely a fantastic choice, we should emphasize that you’re definitely not limited to JUST these types of destinations.

The beauty of destination weddings is that you can host it virtually ANYWHERE you want in the world!

Hosting your wedding at an all-inclusive resort is easy. There are set wedding packages that make choosing and coordinating different facets of your wedding day (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) easier and virtually hassle-free.

However, for those who want to truly make their wedding one-of-a-kind, an off site wedding in a unique location might be right for you!

There are some things to keep in mind if you’re entertaining a destination wedding where all-inclusive resorts are a little harder to find. More planning may be involved as you might be collaborating with a variety of outside vendors. It’s good to also be considerate of your guests and their ability to attend your wedding.  Though there is flexibility in accommodations, and the rates might fit guests’ different budgets, airfare and trip expenses like food and entertainment can add up!

If all signs point to YES, then check out these stunning and breathtaking destinations, perfect for any destination wedding:

Sayulita – Just north of Puerto Vallarta is a lazy, bohemian surfer town, perfect for a destination wedding!
