One of the biggest concerns when planning a wedding is how it might financially affect attending guests. At Bahia Principe, rest assured that when guests book a hotel room, all of their alcohol, coffee, food, and entertainment will be included in the price. Not to mention, if guests stay on the luxury side instead of the “grand” side, no children are allowed as the luxury side is adult-only. From top-shelf booze to a plethora of dining options, Bahia Principe offers nearly everything any guest could ever want. Not to mention their unlimited entertainment, from nightly karaoke to lip-sync battles to live music to dance classes. During the day, expect adult games by the pool, a swim-up bar with delicious rum drinks, and daily grilling of anything from jerk chicken to hotdogs.
7/10 Budget: The Joyful Package

Long gone are the days when weddings have to be painfully expensive. Better known as their “Joyful Package,” for as low as $899, couples who opt for a micro-wedding can get hitched with 10 guests included. Less than $900 to get married is cheaper than most roundtrips to Paris. This price includes 10 guests with a fee of $20 per additional guest and a maximum of 25 people. Don’t think this will be a run-of-the-mill wedding just because of the low price. This includes a wedding cake, bouquet, boutonniere, ceremony toast, 10 professional digital photos, and more. Special perks during your stay include a private group check-in, wedding gift, VIP treatment, romantic breakfast, room upgrade for the couple, and late checkout with a 10% discount at the spa. How’s that for a deal?

Jamaica is located in the Caribbean, which is amongst some of the world’s clearest waters and most pristine beaches. Marriage in Jamaica guarantees a slice of paradise, with the backdrop of crystal clear blue waters and milky white sand. The backdrop is enough to set any marriage off to a good start, with its tropical and paradisaical feel.
3/10 The Option For Legal Marriage

One might wonder how the logistics work when getting married abroad. How can a couple legally get married in another country? Well, save the headache because Bahia Principe will take care of all of the legal work on your behalf. Couples will have to provide items such as birth certificates and valid passports, as well as obtain witnesses. However, these are all of the same things couples would have to provide, regardless of where they are getting married.
2/10 The Flight Deals
Particularly for American couples, Jamaica is a great option for getting hitched abroad, not only because of everything aforementioned but because most domestic airlines fly directly to Montego Bay or Kingston from major US cities. Though it should be noted that Montego Bay is closer to the resort, Kingston is only about a two-hour drive. Airlines such as United, JetBlue, Delta, and Spirit offer direct flights from cities like New York, Chicago, and Fort Lauderdale.
