Just (All of) Us: A Destination Wedding for Two…and Their Entourage

wedding-1246897_1920Recently I posted about a couple getting away, just the two of them, to wed or to renew their vows. But what about the people that want everyone they know to share this special day? That, too, can be done. In fact, the more people that attend a destination wedding, the more group perks and the more bride and groom perks available.

Let’s look at the same resorts that I previously focused on, starting with Sandals (Adults Only, Couples Only) and Beaches Resorts (Family-friendly, for Everyone). Here, groups start with 5 rooms–and the more rooms you have within your group, the more amenities you get (promotions are subject to change based on time of year and availability):

  • For groups of 5-9 rooms, the wedding couple will receive a complimentary room upgrade (based upon availability at check in), a private group check in, and a complimentary 1-hour reception
  • For groups of 10-19 rooms, all of the above as well as a pedicure for the bride and a private, pre-wedding celebration for the attendees and the wedding couple
  • For groups of 20+ rooms, all of the above as well as a complimentary 2-hour dinner reception following the wedding ceremony and a shared catamaran cruise for the entire party

Not too shabby considering that the bride and groom can, essentially, have their wedding and honeymoon entirely for free! Because with 6 or 12 rooms booked (depending on time of year)  the bride and groom get a FREE honeymoon room (based on guests’ length of stay and room categories booked).

For brides- and grooms-to-be with hearts set on Jamaica, Couples Resorts offers every 6th room free. This can also be paired with current specials (like the $500 resort credit). Keep in mind, though, that all Couples Resorts are adults only and cater to couples–all rooms will have King beds. Couples is one of those resorts that may offer a bit more than meets the eye in regard to inclusions. Sometimes, you just need to know who to ask. 😉

Secrets (Adults Only) and Dreams (Family-friendly) Resorts are another solid option for wedding groups. At these resorts, wedding parties can get a number of amenities as well (promotions are subject to change based on time of year and availability):

    Groups of 6 rooms will receive the 6th room FREE (based on guests’ length of stay and room categories booked)

  • Groups of 10 will receive one FREE room and one room category upgrade (based upon availability at check in) and private check in



With all of these amazing offers, it is easy to see why so many couples are choosing an exotic destination to say, “I do.” What about you? Are you dreaming of a destination wedding? If so, leave a comment below as to where your ideal location would be!
