Industry Opinions:

  • The Caribbean offers honeymooners a wide variety of experiences – from large islands to small islands, there’s something for every couple in the Caribbean.

    – Honeymoons.com
  • According to the last two Destination Weddings Studies issued by TheKnot.com, the Caribbean continues to dominate, by a healthy margin, as the most popular place for nuptials outside the continental U.S.

    – The Knot
  • Nothing can soothe the stress of wedding planning like soft sands, calm waters and a warm Caribbean breeze. Newlyweds can’t get enough of these islands’ swanky beach resorts and laid-back vibes.
