Your Dream Destination Wedding Is Closer Than You Think

  |  By Weddingbells

So you’ve made your first major decision as an engaged couple: you and your beloved want to pledge your love while indulging in a tropical paradise. Not only that, but you want your wedding to be a once-in-a-lifetime, wholly romantic experience with your nearest and dearest on hand. So you’ve opted for a destination wedding and you’ve set your sights on the beauty and serenity of a tropical beach affair. But, planning a wedding can be difficult, and planning a destination wedding sight unseen seems like it could be an even more daunting endeavor. However, it doesn't have to be. With the proper assistance from your chosen destination, the planning process can actually be much more simple than planning a wedding at home.

Air Transat and Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts offer exceptionally romantic beachside settings and thoughtful wedding coordinators who make it their business to ensure your wedding is the happiest day of your life. Their 18 all-inclusive resorts in idyllic locales like Dominican Republic, Mexico and Jamaica redefine paradise by welcoming you and your betrothed to the lap of ultimate luxury. Upon your arrival you will enter a dream-like oasis of tropical beauty, with an enchantingly intimate setting, supreme personalized service and extravagance at every turn. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most: like a celebratory toast after your ceremony, a room upgrade, a special wedding gift, and, of course, late checkout. Plus, with professional on-site planners, all the little things are covered – leaving you to simply enjoy every moment of your big day.

Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts radiate a charm that verges on the ethereal—refined cuisine to please the most discerning palates; exquisitely decorated rooms with views of stunning landscapes; and unparalleled treatment that aims to satisfy your every desire and whim. Because to experience happiness, joy and romance on your wedding day—that is the greatest gift of all.

With a range of packages to choose from for your special day, Air Transat and Bahia Principe make planning a destination wedding in paradise not only extremely simple, they make it an absolute joy!

Sunshine Package Soak up the sunshine of the tropics on your wedding day. Your personal wedding planners will cover all the basics before professional photographers capture your ceremony while you and your beloved enjoy VIP treatment throughout your stay. This package includes everything you need (with an extra-special touch) for the wedding of your dreams.

Unforgettable Package Your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable days of your life. This wedding package strikes the perfect balance of classic elegance and tropical flair. Romance mingles with a high-end atmosphere, live music sets the scene for your ceremony, a toast ushers in your reception and dancing is encouraged the whole night through.

Romance Extravaganza Package Opulent decor and personalized touches make your big day—and your entire stay—everything you dreamed it could be. From the moment you look in the mirror that one final time to the lavish celebration that follows, you and your guests will enjoy the most luxurious amenities.

Emerald Package The very best for those with the biggest dreams. Like a rare gem, this top-of-the-line package sparkles with beauty and elegance: live music enhances your ceremony and reception, Moët & Chandon champagne stays chilled just for you, and a couple’s VIP spa experience promises complete relaxation throughout your stay.

Free Wedding Package Of course, a FREE wedding would make an excellent gift, and Air Transat and Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts agrees! From December 23 2018 to April 30, 2019 and from May 1 to December 22, 2019 you have a chance to have the wedding of your dreams at specific resorts absolutely free (conditions apply).
