We know that lots of folks these days are exploring and researching options and plan B’s for getting married under social distancing guidelines, including small and intimate destination wedding possibilities. Over the years, Puerto Rico Destination Weddings, Inc. has planned and performed hundreds of beautiful small and intimate weddings; indeed, we specialize in outdoor weddings with twenty guests or less.
We’re biased, of course, but we believe that having your wedding in Puerto Rico is one of the best decisions you can make!
But why? Here are our Top Five Reasons that Puerto Rico is the Best Place for a Destination Wedding.
#5. It’s part of the USA, so logistics are easy. You don’t need a passport. There are easy, direct flights to SJU as well as BQN airports. Cell phones work. You don’t have to change currency. You can speak English. You can drink the water etc. etc. It’s like going on vacation to a neighboring state, only so much more beautiful!
#4. 110% LGBTQ-Friendly. Legally and Culturally. In 100+ gay weddings, we have never had anything other than positive and loving experiences, including with the public. Each and every vendor and business we work with and recommend has been vetted for 110% gay friendliness.
#3. Real, authentic, and local experiences. Stay in an AirBnb, rent a car and explore, talk to a friendly local, eat local food, dance salsa, and more. It’s easy to get around and to experience the real Puerto Rico.
#2. Amazing year-round weather. There is no off-season. The winter lows are in the 70’s. Even in the summer heat, we have a lovely sea breeze.
#1. Incredibly unique wedding venues. Because your special day deserves a special place. Choose from pirates lairs, lighthouse ruins, deserted beaches, endless tide pools, waterfalls, cliffside overlooks, or even underwater!
