Antigua and Barbuda Wedding Planning

Antigua and Barbuda Weddings

Antigua and Barbuda are Caribbean islands that form one country. Spectacular beaches, a winding coastline, cliffs, coral rock formations and reefs mean there are limitless options for your dream destination wedding in Antigua and Barbuda.

Celebrities love Antigua and Barbuda for the high-end resorts, peace and tranquility with some of the finest white sand beaches amid a contrast of azure waters. Keep an eye out as you don’t know who you may meet.

At the harbor, take in the sights, dance in the street to the toe tapping steel-drum music, and dine on traditional West-Indian cuisine.

You will enjoy everything about this exotic island. Antigua and Barbuda are a chic wedding retreat one will never, ever forget. If you are looking to have an extravagant destination wedding and woo your guests, Antigua and Barbuda should be on your destination wedding invitations.

Stingray City

A trip to Stingray City is one of the most popular things for wedding guests to do in Antigua. Just a five-minute speedboat ride off the island’s east coast, Stingray City is a shallow pool with a sandy bottom amid a tropical reef, where hundreds of friendly southern stingrays glide through the crystal-clear waters waiting to be fed by you and your wedding guests.

Nelson’s Dockyard National Park

A hot spot for tourists, and packed with multiple attractions, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park is sure to please couples and their wedding parties. This remains the only continuously operating Georgian dockyard in the world and made UNESCO’s World Heritage List in July 2016.

Soak up the ambience by wandering around restored stone warehouses, which contrast strikingly with the glitzy superyachts in the marina. Most of these old buildings are now home to hotels, restaurants, shops, and galleries.

17 Mile Beach Barbuda

Those who lay eyes on Barbuda’s 17 Mile Beach will probably never see a more ravishing stretch of coast. Lapped by pale aqua seas, this stunning stretch of pink-tinged sand separates the Barbuda lagoon from the Caribbean Sea and impresses even the most jaded of beach connoisseurs.

Strolling along these sublime shores is one of the most romantic things you and your partner can do in Barbuda. The sand here is soft as flour, and its remote location means you can walk for miles without seeing another soul.

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Antigua and Barbuda.
