The annual rainfall is about 45 inches, though it can really rain at any time - thus the lush vegetation. You must take care to avoid the hurricane season if possible to avoid any problems with your wedding.

Most couples take advantage of all inclusive resort hotels offering a full holiday wedding package. Resorts and prices vary widely. You also have the option to employ a local wedding planner not from your hotel to arrange your wedding - maybe on a private beach, beach side restaurant or tropical garden.


There are many destinations across the Caribbean to get married. Some destinations are more difficult for a wedding because of language or wedding regulations.

Many islands are legally quite easy to get married in, often with only a short residency requirement before a wedding ceremony can take place. Weddings in most Caribbean nations are fully legal in US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand & Europe. You will quite easily be able to register your marriage when you get home.
