Not every all-inclusive destination wedding has to be expensive. There are several affordable options for those seeking an all-inclusive wedding package. In addition, all-inclusive packages carry the advantage of letting you know exactly what you'll be spending before you depart on your wedding trip. Your meals are included. So are the transportation, tips, drinks, and taxes -- one price covers everything.
One affordable all-inclusive option is the Sandals Inn in Montego Bay Jamaica, part of the Sandals Resort family. This 52-room, beachfront hotel is more like a country inn than a sprawling resort. There are fewer restaurant options and amenities here, but you have the option to dine or use the facilities at the other Sandals Resorts at no additional charge.
Another way to save on all-inclusive wedding packages is to travel during the off-season. This means from mid-April to mid-December for Caribbean and Mexican destinations. Prices can be as much as 40 percent lower than high season rates. Be careful, however, to avoid the middle of hurricane season -- from mid-August to mid-October -- if you are traveling to Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula or the upper Caribbean.
Using the services of a destination wedding planner can also help you save money on your all-inclusive wedding. Because they deal with wedding packages on a daily basis, wedding planners, such as those at Destination Weddings.com, are ideally placed to be able to find the best prices and packages to suit your tastes and budget.
