In the heart of the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda offer the perfect setting for romance to flourish – whether for a destination wedding, renewal of vows or honeymoon. Couples are realising that a wedding weekend is far superior than a wedding day and are making Antigua one of the preferred top wedding and honeymoon destinations.
Just think of a wedding ceremony barefoot on the beach, like in a romantic film! If the idea appeals to you, it’s easy to arrange.
In fact, even if you decide during your holiday to get married, it’s possible to do it without long preparations.
Many hotels can arrange it on their private beach or in a dedicated gazebo and assist you with organising the event. Most hotels offer special wedding packages or honeymoon deals.
To help you organise all aspects of your wedding you can hire a professional wedding designer agency available on island that will take care of everything you may need.
