A Caribbean villa holiday is incredibly special and unique, making it the perfect choice for your destination wedding. Villa accommodation offers privacy, allowing you to escape the crowds you tend to find in hotels and resorts, especially during high season. You’ll also enjoy a highly personalised and exclusive experience where everything happens at your own pace.
Most importantly, a villa holiday allows you to spend quality time surrounded by the people who matter most. With no strangers in sight, it’s the ideal way to savour and enjoy the run-up to your wedding. Your surroundings are your own, and there’s no need to scramble for a poolside lounger or queue at the restaurant, your villa is all yours!
Here are three more reasons to book a luxury private villa for your Caribbean wedding…
Gated properties in secluded locations are ideal for a celebration as intimate as your wedding. Large villas also provide ample space for multi-generational families. Housing your entire bridal party in one place can help simplify logistics and reduce the need to ferry people to and from various hotels and resorts. You’ll also be able to share communal meals and spend plenty of time hanging out by the pool.

Many villas in the Caribbean are affiliated with a luxury resort but secluded from the rest of the property and its guests. This affords you all the benefits of a private abode while also allowing you to enjoy resort amenities such as restaurants, luxury spa, kids club, tennis courts and gym.

Until next time,
Now, more than ever before, couples have a very good reason to make their marriage official before holding a big celebration at a later date. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many to postpone their weddings until later this year or next. I’ve seen the heartache this has caused first-hand, and I know the situation is far from ideal. Now lockdown restrictions are being eased, couples at least have the option to hold a small civil ceremony, perhaps followed by a small reception. It might seem like a compromise, but it doesn’t have to be.
