Antigua - A Dream Wedding Destination!

If you are dreaming of a perfect wedding in Antigua, then you should know that the place is Caribbean's most romantic destination. Antigua has won several awards for travel, tourism, and for hospitality.

Antigua's location and Culture

You can now get married at the Leeward Islands where the sea meets the ocean. Antigua is adjacent to St Kitts and Nevis and north of Guadeloupe. One of the leeward islands in the top right corner of the chain. Antigua as a wedding destination for those from the UK is also the best because of the predominant British culture. For example there are very pretty churches and the locals are a very polite and helpful bunch. Most do not come to Antigua for a church wedding however and the beaches and resorts offer such pretty destination weddings.

What is extraordinary about Antigua?

The place has historic centres of interest such as nelsons dockyard and betty’s hope and beaches galore more than 365! Have one every day for a year. Families can find their inner zen in the midst of the wedding buzz. There are many rental villas to choose from some which can accommodate large numbers so it can be easier to organise families and friends so that they are close by.

You would find the most amazing gazebos around the world some of which are wooden, and some made up of other natural materials. Gazebos are structures built in the middle of the wedding venue where the ceremony takes place. This is also called scene decoration. That makes it a heaven for nature lovers getting married in the lap of the world's least explored wedding destinations of the world.

The theme for your wedding

The wedding packages come per resort with options for different kinds of services. If your idea is sailing, then your guests can indulge in the same.  The next could be off-roading, for underwater fans there is a theme based on scubadiving. The plan of the wedding decides which layout you wish to go with. Of course the normal is a beach wedding as Antigua excells in this department. If you have the money, then go for the royal wedding. The place has historical value, and 'history' could be your theme for there are museums, fortifications on hillocks for history lovers. For a romantic movie feel relish the moment with old plantation style windmill ruins as backdrops.

Food love

Food is another speciality of Antigua. There is seafood; the cakes are mouth-watering, the grapefruit drink being chef's favourite, and also the lobster is delicious. Ducana is the preference for vegetarian food lovers, the most commonly loved beer being Wadali, and do not miss the local hot sauces such as suzies. Champagnes and wines of various assortments are also served. Sangiovese wine is the author's choice and also the favourites of the locals.


Luxury Villas in Antigua

The glamorous hotels all charge an average of 773 pounds per night. However booking a package holiday makes this considerably less and some include a wedding package. You can find lower range hotels and accommodations for example the rex resorts halcyon. Choose something like cliff top suites at curtain bluff from where you can watch the waves and beachlife - serene, and magnificent.

For others there it’s poolside parties such as at carmichaels and weddings which also have an electrifying environment. There are colonial style hotels too. All accommodations respect privacy. All resorts are located around quaint villages and most on idylic beaches with peace abound.

You would also find thatched roof settings for a rustic feel and vibe. On the other hand, there are hotels with roofs of modernity with high vaulted ceilings. Many resorts offer a pool table, foosball and table pong. There are resort parties which go on till you drop.


Shop at Abbotts in St Johns Herritage quay. There are many gifts options- artefacts, clothes, jewellery, perfumes, love emblems, and more.

Poker and nightlife

For those who love poker and gambling, there is Las Vegas-style gaming. Your bachelor friends can enjoy a wild time too. You will lose the sense of time from dawn to dusk when you get to Antigua. The nightlife is fun and you can dance the whole night long as you become man and wife.

Most clubs play Reggae, Calypso, Soca and Dancehall, Regaeton music and more. But, modern music is played too for the teens. You can dance the night away under the starlit sky if your trip falls within a scheduled ‘fete’ or party. You can also go for a lounge-style candle lit musical evening if that suits your temperament better. Because the culture is British, you find sophistication without asking. For those who like variety, there is a bistro setting mixed with a lounge, and a pub to make it pretty eclectic. Then there is the usual bar and pub hopping. For the elderly people, there is also an option for a sombre setting where they can read newspapers with a view of the ocean. At special requests for regular clients, some bars have a terrace rooftop party with music blaring all night long. There are also steel bands limbo dancers and fire eating shows- you will be entertained the whole time.


You would need a valid passport, a birth certificate, and a picture ID to get married here.

Same sex weddings

There is absolutely no bias in Antigua against those willing to go for same sex marriages, and these couples also need no special license. Same sex weddings are legal there. If you wish, you could go to a private beach or a get an entire private island for yourselves if you have the budget such as lionel messi who chose Antigua for his honeymoon.

The perfect ending

For those loved guests who are invited and cannot make it to the wedding, you should plan souvenirs. There is Zenergy Boutique where you can buy knick-knacks for them. There are silver jewellery, kaftans, and gifts that they would treasure.

There would be no hitch. There is also room for those lovebirds who eloped and decided they want to get married. Come to Antigua and get married. Every place that offers a wedding package in the island lives by three principles - quality, service, and excellence. The venue is magical.
