TRUE! More or Less… The free wedding package offered at an all-inclusive resort can be a great option for your destination wedding. At most resorts, the free package is offered when you are staying on the property for a set amount of days in a certain room category. Now don’t get me wrong, the free wedding package does not include every luxury though if you are on a budget, it is a great option for you.
For example, Dreams Punta Cana offers you an onsite wedding coordinator, ceremony in the gazebo, wedding cake, sparkling wine toast for 10 guests, bride and groom’s flowers, pressing of the wedding attire and the all important complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding. This is a great free package if you are comfortable with having your reception dinner in one of the restaurants on the property. The dinner would not be private but it is already included and a great way to celebrate.
Here’s the thing, you can always add onto the free wedding package too! Customize this package for your own dream wedding. Though be careful not to add on too many upgrades to the free package, it can add up! Many resorts offer two to three other options for wedding packages at a cost. These packages are set up to bundle a lot of these desired upgrades into an affordable package, saving you money. This is where working with a Destination Wedding specialist, like me, really pays off. I can tell you which package is the best value for your wedding day.
Depending on the wedding you are planning for, the free wedding package can be a great option for your nuptials. Letting the resort grounds and beach be your back drop and having your nearest and dearest travel with you is the advantage over having the big wedding at home. Free package or not, a destination wedding is a memorable and cost effective wedding option!
