You've got the dress, the site, the food and the flowers... what else could you need? Well, you'll definitely need an officiant for your destination wedding as well! Many of the resorts in the islands of the Caribbean offer total packages for your wedding, which include the “use” of a non-denominational minister. Other places throughout the world may require that you be married by specific clergy or government officials, so it's important to find out the regulations at your wedding destination. At other sorts of destination wedding locations, such as chapels and in Las Vegas, there are also other officiants that are legally able to marry couples – and are often included in wedding packages. Specific denominational religious figures may not be available to marry you at specific destinations, so if you have your heart set on a Catholic wedding, be sure to find out if that's possible first.
