Destination weddings just got more affordable, according to AskMeWeddings. The Miami-based company, which represents venues in the Bahamas, Caribbean and Mexico, announced free weddings at select hotels, a savings of up to $3900, and $250 off vow renewals at all AskMeWeddings hotel partners.
At Paradisus Resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, couples get the Chill Out Chic Wedding package free, a savings of $3900, when their group adds up to a total of 90 room nights. The room nights can be organized in any way. Couples with smaller groups booking 60 room nights receive the Fantasy Wedding package free, a savings of $1700.
Both packages at Paradisus include a private ceremony, décor, open bar, wedding cake, and discounts at the spa for the couple. Fantasy also includes a cocktail party and Chill Out Chic, based on 24 in-house guests, includes a buffet dinner reception in a private location.
At The Villas of Stonehaven in Tobago, couples earn free nights when more villas are booked to join their wedding. The only requirement is a three-night minimum stay for all villa bookings. When five villas are booked for a wedding or vow renewal, the couple earns a free night. When 10 villas are booked, the couple earns three free nights.
“The average cost in 2015 of a domestic wedding was around $40,000,” said Hilary Lanzer of AskMeWeddings, “Destination weddings are far more affordable, and we love offering more ways for couples to save.”
Calabash Cove Resort & Spa in Saint Lucia offers 26-rooms, a full-service restaurant and a 40-foot infinity pool overlooking Bonaire Bay. With a resort buy-out (when one group books the entire hotel room), guests get up to six rooms free, a potential savings of $3990 per night. Room rates start at $665 per room, based on double occupancy. For more information on the beachfront resort, visit http://calabashcove.com.
