Destination weddings are the unicorns of wedding planning. You get to combine going somewhere you’ve been dreaming of, with the love your life along with your close friends and family to celebrate your wedding. There are no two destination weddings alike and how you decide on your ceremony should be completely up to you and your soon-to-be spouse. This is why we’re sharing today 4 little-known secrets of destination weddings.
If you’re settled on having a destination wedding and are not sure where to start, Barceló Weddings has a wide variety of unforgettable destinations throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. They offer venues for every type of wedding and style, from dreamy sand-in-toes spots to traditional Catholic churches.
Here are four little-known secrets to having a destination wedding:
1. You don’t have to have a non-denominational ceremony just because you’re at a resort. It’s all a matter of finding the right venue that offers a Catholic ceremony. Both Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort and Barceló Maya Grand Resort have a Catholic chapel and a myriad of venue options including a gazebo and several beach spots.
2. You don’t need to travel far to have a South Asian style wedding. Because weddings can vary among faith, they offer several locations in Riviera Maya like the Barceló Maya Grand Resort, or the Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort in Punta Cana.
3. History buffs, adventure-seekers and off-the-beaten couples looking for something more than a destination wedding. If the idea of getting married at a national park or historical site in a completely unique venue is something that grabs your attention, then resorts such as Occidental at Xcaret Destination will be a must check out. They offer Mayan ruin weddings on site, and this all-inclusive resort offers packages with unlimited passes to the ecological park so you can spend a day, come back for a bite to eat, and return at your own leisure.
4. All-inclusive tropical paradise, adults-only, and ultra chic weddings. You can have all 3. The Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is one of the largest all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. Comprised of two resorts, you have plenty of elbow room for you and your guests to enjoy the wedding day as well as mini vacations and honeymoon without having to mix the two. To give you a glimpse of how stunning the grounds are this Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort wedding captured by Asia Pimentel will give you a taste.
