Some suggestions while planning for such an adventure :

  • If you are flying in vendors from your home country, be sure that they are familiar with the island, in particular your wedding photographer and cinematographer.
  • Alternatively, if you wish to hire local vendors at source, have your chosen resort recommend those whom they work with closely.
  • Ask if the resort you have in mind is offering any special promotions, particularly during low season. Also, negotiate preferential room rates if you are travelling with a party.
  • Determine if the resort you have shortlisted can offer a certain level of privacy for your wedding celebrations.
