Caribbean destination wedding for 100+

Recommended Posts

Hi beautiful brides, brides-to-be & wives!

I am newly engaged and the planning has already started because we are getting married in January.  We want a destination wedding in the Caribbean and the guest list is upwards of 300 people, we feel 100-150 will attend.


As I research all the amazing islands and resorts I tend to get overwhelmed with how I am actually going to make a decision.


What I do know:  My fiance and I are leaning towards the all-inclusive side.


PROs:  It makes it easy for the guests and is a basic price for everything...especially since there will be a large crowd.


CONs:  Not having options available as far a details. (is this true?)


Question #1- Has anyone done a large wedding in Caribbean at a resort that is not all-inclusive?  What was your experience and did the costs seem to sky-rocket?


I also know that I don't want to get married in the sand.  I would love a grass setting with the water the background.


Questions #2-  Has anyone else had this setting?


Question #3- Have you had the wedding of your dreams in the Caribbean? or are you planning it right now?:-)  Would love to know where.


Thank you all for reading and best wishes!  Hope your planning is going great!


<3 MissMissy

MissMissy, I am currently planning my wedding for 150-175 guests in the Bahamas. It will be at the Wyndham Nassau. It is not all-inclusive but the location is great, the room rate is great, and the wedding team there is awesome! I filled out an inquiry online and received a response in less than 24 hours. I received hotel rates and packages and a phone conference with their wedding coordinator right away. They answer EVERY question you may have, and some you didn't wen know you have! I have pictures and lots of options. The biggest plus is that they book 1 wedding per day do you are NEVER Rushed!

I was a recent bride in Tobago in the Caribbean and I loved the ability to have control over all my details at a private villa and not be a product of some mass-produced commercialized process where I am just one in ten brides for the month. We had about 180 guests and it all went great!


I am also a well-established caribbean based photographer and would love to provide a quote for our services if you ever need it! www.ilysiuminc.com


Happy planning! Ily

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
