All-inclusive hotels are on the rise. Call it the after-effects of the pandemic or just the ease of doing things, couples want to truly enjoy the moment without worrying much about everything else. There’s no endless list of decisions you have to make and all you have to do is pretty much just pack away your wallet and passport because you won’t have to shell out a dime during your stay. It’s the ultimate way to relax, get married, and have the time of your life.
All-Inclusive means that everything is included in your package–the room rate, food, drinks, tips, taxes, and sometimes, the ceremony package. Most all-inclusive resorts have pre-made destination wedding packages and come with an on-site wedding coordinator who takes care of the operations and any extra requests made. Before booking, you need to look into the services offered and check with them if any extra service that you want can be accommodated.
Wedding planning is never easy, but all-inclusive weddings can simplify the process. So if you are stuck on the idea of the perfect atmosphere for your romantic celebration, look no further than these incredible properties.
