What is an All-Inclusive Destination Wedding?

The Benefits of An All-Inclusive Wedding in the Bahamas

An all-inclusive destination wedding means that nearly everything (yes, everything!) is included in your destination wedding package. This typically means your room rate, food and drinks, tips, taxes, a basic ceremony, florals, photographer, and sometimes a small reception or cake-cutting ceremony. Bonus points: when you travel to the Bahamas for your wedding, you don’t need to worry about any additional payments!

This gives you and your finance more time to focus on being together during such a special time in your lives versus worrying about linen colors, planning out itineraries, and sorting out outstanding payments. Some all-inclusive resorts will even offer to host your destination wedding packages for free when you book a minimum number of nights or a minimum number of rooms. The details are taken care of so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your wedding day.

All-Inclusive vs Full-Service Wedding

When deciding whether to go the all-inclusive or the full-service traditional planning route, you need to look at the big picture of expectations, budgets, guest count, and more. All-inclusive is not for everyone and it’s important to take these important factors into consideration when deciding on what is best for you.

For instance, if you’re really looking to explore the Bahamas outside of the resort and try different restaurants and activities, the all-inclusive wedding package might not be a good fit for you if you plan on enjoying these things offsite every day.

Also, part of booking an all-inclusive wedding means that vendors like your florist, photographer, officiant, etc. will all be done through the resort. If you prefer to have more control over each individual vendor you select, a traditional full-service wedding planning route may be a better option for you!
