Barbados is the perfect destination for Caribbean weddings.
Weddings in Barbados are ideal because of the cool tropical
climate of the island and breathtaking scenery, including
beaches, old sugar plantations, and beautiful green golf
courses. If you're planning a wedding, Barbados
wedding packages may save you time and money in the planning
process. Barbados weddings are also popular because there
is no need to go on a separate honeymoon after the wedding.
After your guests depart, the most idyllic honeymoon setting
in the Caribbean is at your fingertips!
Caribbean weddings can take place at any time of year. The temperature of Barbados rarely gets over 75 degrees and rainfall is infrequent, so you won't have to worry too much about your perfect day being spoiled by the weather. There are companies all over Barbados that specialize in weddings in Barbardos, offering Barbados wedding packages that include all of the necessary elements that will make your wedding fantasy come true. Most companies that specialize in Caribbean weddings include the rental of tents, tables, and chairs, flower arrangements, and your choice of a tranquil spot to conduct the ceremony. The most popular setting for weddings in Barbados is the west coast, often called the "Platinum Coast." It's common to have Barbados weddings right on the beach and have the wedding party at a nearby resort. Your guests will love the fact that they'll be able to attend your wedding and have a vacation of a lifetime.
The government of Barbados has a few requirements for getting married in the country. To make it official, you must apply for a marriage license in person at the Ministry of Home Affairs in Bridgetown. In order for your application to be processed, you"ll need to produce the required documents. A valid passport and return tickets to your home country are required from each person. If either person has been divorced, you"ll need to provide a certified copy of the divorce papers. If either person has been widowed, the Barbados officials require a certified copy of the marriage certificate as well as a certificate of death. The fee for non-residents of Barbados is $175 Barbados dollars (cash only).
Many couples head to the Ministry of Home Affairs right after landing at the international airport in Barbados. While it usually doesn"t take longer than a half an hour for the officials to process your application, it is always a good idea to submit your marriage application as soon as possible. Many caribbean islands require couples to wait atleast a couple of days after they submit their application to get married, but Barbados does not have any such restrictions. If you don"t want to wait another day to get married, Barbados makes it possible to get married the same day of arrival!
The Almond Beach Village is a resort where many Barbados weddings are held. It is situated upon an old sugar plantation that dates back to the 18th century. The resort is located right on 32 acres of a white sandy beach just north of Speightstown. The stately buildings of the plantation offer an elegant setting for the wedding reception or groom's dinner. After the wedding, invite your guests to stay in one of the guest suites. Whether your guests are singletons or have many children, the Almond Beach Village has you covered. On one end of the facility are rooms and pools reserved for adults, while the spacious rooms on the south end are specially designed with families in mind. Guests will enjoy activities such as golfing, waterskiing, diving, and sailing. For a night on the town before the big day, the capital city of Bridgetown is nearby.
With the stress that planning a wedding can cause, why not consider Barbados wedding packages. Weddings in Barbados offer the flexibility of holding a wedding any time of year, great all inclusive resorts for the ceremony, and most importantly miles of tropical beaches that offer the perfect setting to say "I do."
