Weddings in Antigua


Born out of the sea by a volcano, surrounded by coral reefs and enthused with rich history, Antigua is located in the heart of the Caribbean Sea. Voted ‘Caribbean’s Most Romantic Destination’ four times in a row by the World Travel Awards, the island offers promised sunshine and stunning backdrops, a perfect place to say ‘I Do’. Antigua promises an island paradise, with tall palm trees and white sand on a beach for every day of the year. Explore hiking trails in Indian Town National Park, or take in the vibrance of English Harbour, the only Georgian dockyard in the world, with atmospheric bars and restaurants, and stunning elegant yachts with the ocean views.

What To Expect From your Antigua Wedding Package

From breath-taking beaches to unique locations, Antigua offers a stunning venue for any style of wedding. The island’s luxurious resorts offer many attractive venues and great wedding packages. Our selection of properties in Antigua offer a range of packages to cater to size, budget, and taste. From small boutiques to well-known all-inclusive resorts, there's something for everyone. Packages range from simplicity to full-on affairs. Choose your package to suit your needs, whether it be an intimate ceremony for 2 with a private romantic dinner, a gathering of 10 with an elegant beachfront dinner and bouquets and photography, to a larger party with a photobooth, dance floor, rooftop cocktail and starlight reception, with a romantic video of your ceremony. For our current Antigua properties, you’ll be holding your wedding events in the resort, and will have an experienced wedding coordinator helping you every step of the way.

Legalities, Requirements, & Same-Sex Weddings

For a symbolic wedding in Antigua, you need to arrive 48 hours before your ceremony, including 1 business day, which excludes your day of arrival. Ceremonies cannot take place on a Sunday, therefore if you arrive on Friday, you can be married on Tuesday. Ceremonies canbe performed between 6am and 6pm.

 

Your legal fees, such as the notary and translation costs are not included in your wedding package, however some resorts will include the services of a judge or minister in their more comprehensive packages. Legal fees in Antigua are very reasonable. Your dedicated in-resort wedding coordinator will help you with the legal arrangements. After your ceremony, you will be sent your notarised and translated marriage license to your home address. This can take 8 – 12 weeks to come through.

 

In Antigua, same-sex marriages are not permitted. This means resorts are not able to hold symbolic, nor legal ceremonies. If you're looking for a legal same-sex wedding in the Caribbean, Mexico would be the best choice, followed by Costa Rica. Symbolic ceremonies are also available in the Dominican Republic in selected resorts.

Group Bookings

A selection of resorts will offer you and your party a form of group benefits. This can range from free rooms and room upgrades, extra events for your wedding, or even credit towards your wedding. A selection of resorts will do this for you, without any need for a group booking deposit, or everybody needing to book at the same time. It’s easy and convenient for you and your friends and family. If you’re looking to launch your own wedding website, we can offer you a selection of prices and special offer details to share. To receive these benefits, you’ll often need to avoid certain dates as usually Easter and Christmas week would be excluded, and you and your guests need to be booked through the same company.

 

Please keep in mind, generally resorts on the island are boutiques or of an intimate size. They may have restrictions on party size as to not disturb other guests or may have a smaller room count than you and your party need.

 

Speak to a member of our team about your party size and needs and they can advise what’s best for your wedding.
