Planning a Caribbean Beach Wedding
A Caribbean beach wedding is a great choice! The Caribbean islands are an island chain 2,500 miles (4,020 km) long and no more than 160 miles (257 km) wide at any given point. They enclose the Caribbean Sea. Having a beach wedding on one of these Caribbean islands is the dream of many a bride planning a destination beach wedding as it is incredibly romantic. Choose from the many exquisite, secluded white beaches lapped by crystal clear blue water for your perfect spot. Some of the islands where couples love to tie the knot include: Anguilla, Antigua, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Jamaica, La Romana, Nevis, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Turks and Caicos.
The climate in the Caribbean is generally fantastic and you will be surrounded by palm trees, tropical greenery and flowers. Temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter to the mid-eighties in the summer, so you can have a wedding year round and still have fabulous weather. Do try to avoid the hurrican season if possible.
