For wedding couples seeking a more exotic wedding destination, consider Brazil. The world's fifth largest nation is known for its care-free tempo, beautiful beaches, and lilting music. The city of Rio along the southern coast also boasts one of the world's most festive Carnivale celebrations, right before Lent each year.
Among the many all-inclusive resorts in Brazil are the Ponta dos Gonchos Resort on the southern coastal area of Santa Catarina. Guests here stay in private bungalows overlooking the ocean and the resort has a private island, just offshore, where it hosts romantic, candlelit dinners for two.
Other Brazilian all-inclusive resorts include Blue Tree Park Eco-Resort, about 90 miles outside of Rio and known for its excellent diving and canopy tours; the Breezes in Costa do Sauipe, in Bahia; and the Club Med on Itaparica Island in Bahia.
Packages vary from resort to resort, but most include accommodations, meals and at least some drinks, activities and (generally) non-motorized water sports, transportation to and from the airport, and taxes and service charges. All offer beautiful sites for a wedding ceremony.
