April 9, 2010, Newsletter Issue #125: All-Inclusive Wedding Packages: What's Included

Tip of the Week

Okay, a destination wedding package sounds great, but what does it include? What other expenses should you expect? Is there anyone available to help you with your wedding plans? All good questions. Here are a few answers:

What's included in an all-inclusive wedding package?

Destination wedding packages generally include accommodations, meals and drinks, transportation to and from the airport, nightly entertainment, a variety of water sports and activities, and all taxes and service charges. In addition, the wedding package includes the services of an officiant or clergyman, a decorated wedding site, all of the necessary paperwork, flowers for the bride and groom, a Caribbean-style wedding cake, and taxes and service charges. Some resorts add extras, such as breakfast in bed on the first morning after the wedding, a Champagne toast following the wedding, or a wedding photograph.

What other expenses should I expect?

Most expenses are covered by the destination wedding package. Extras would include your wedding attire, music (if desired), flowers other than the bride's bouquet and the groom's boutonniere, any spa or salon services, and food and beverage service for a reception (if desired).

Is there anyone to help me with my wedding plans?

Yes! Most larger resorts employ designated wedding planners to assist with all of the details. Or, enlist the aid of a destination wedding specialist, such as those with Destination Weddings.com.
