Often, the couple planning their wedding is presented with a number of stress-related decisions and a costly array of celebration options.

When you book your Caribbean wedding package with the top resorts, their base ceremony is “free”, providing that you stay for a minimum required of days, typically 3 to 4. Normally, the free wedding ceremony entails the trimmings for the bride and groom, a cake and champagne, and a ceremony for the couple and a few of their friends. You will also be responsible for paying government processing fees for your marriage license that typically range from $200-$500. If you are interested in upgrading your Caribbean wedding package, the resorts can add a wide array of extra amenities for relatively nominal fees. If you have the means to spend extra and want to invite a number of friends and family to your wedding ceremony, you can purchase packages for guests. Per guest, you can expect to pay as little as $800-$1,200 for an all inclusive 3-night package with airfare. You probably will not encounter too many complaints from guests being offered a free trip to the Caribbean.
