Planning a wedding is a special milestone in your life! At Magical Trips we specialize in creating Magical Memories that our clients cherish forever!
Why a destination wedding? The cost of a traditional ceremony and reception at a banquet hall or hotel can be outrageous - and last only a few hours. Planning a destination wedding can cost considerably less, often include more, and are affordable for every budget!
A destination wedding allows couples to:
Choose a beautiful, unique destination wedding venue - in the sand on a charming Caribbean island, on a cruiseship overlooking turquoise waters, or in a charming chapel at Sandals.
Have a reception you desire - whether it's a simple dinner after the ceremony or lavish reception in a ballroom, there are plenty of options and customizable wedding packages in all price ranges.
Combine planning your honeymoon and wedding - venture off to another resort or destination for time alone after the wedding weekend.
Spend three to seven days creating unforgettable memories with your closest friends and family.
What is the timeline for planning a destination wedding? This varies with the couple and the destination. We have planned weddings for the same month of travel multiple times however it can be very challenging especially if looking for a legal ceremony, travelling with a group and wanting a wedding during winter season in the Caribbean.
Here's the timeline and process that tends to offer the best selection and lowest rates for travel due to early booking bonuses offered for group travel.
Timeline for All Inclusive Destination Wedding for Groups:
12 to 18 months in advance
11 months in advance
6 months in advance
3 months in advance
2 weeks to 1 month in advance
