Here are the Barbados wedding requirements: There’s no mandatory wait period to get married, so you can just go and say your vows without having to be in the country for two or three days beforehand. You’ll need passports, return tickets, and proof of divorce (if you were married beforehand). All documents in languages other than English need to be translated and notarized. You’ll also need about $100 to pay for various fees.
One major bonus about getting married on Barbados is that it does not get hit by hurricanes. This gives you a lot of options when it comes to picking a wedding date. It’s clean, safe, beautiful, and one of the top destinations in the entire Caribbean ocean.
Barbados has a great international airport (airport code BGI) with lots of flights, which is pretty important when you start to plan a destination wedding. Major carriers include British Airways, American Airways, and Virgin Atlantic. Canadians may prefer to fly WestJet or Air Canada. Cruise ships also stop a lot in Barbados.
Barbados wedding venues & resorts
I can recommend the Sandpiper in Saint James, the Coral Reef Club, or Cobblers Cove. The weddings at Mango Bay Resort or the Fairmont Royal Pavillion are equally astonishing. The Sandy Lane Hotel may be one of the best 5-star luxury resorts in the world, and it’s famous around the globe. It may be the best place to get married on Barbados. It’s been known thorughout the Caribbean since 1961, and the waterfalls surrounding its pools are sure wow you. It’s also got a fantastic golf course nearby for wedding guests. Also consider Waves, Treasure Beach, Crystal Cove, The House, Colony Clu or the Crane. .
What to do on Barbados
If you’re having a destination wedding in Barbados, you and your guests will find ample activities to pass the time. Unlike many Caribbean islands, there’s actually some good surf at the Soup Bowl on Babados. Windsurfing and kite surfing is becoming increasingly popular. Otherwise, you can scuba dive, visit a wildlife reserve, or go dancing at the many beach bars. Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable to just lounge and enjoy the white sand beaches and warm, turquoise water. Photography is a fun way to spend the time on the island. If you want to do an underwater trash the dress session in Barbados, I can bring an waterproof camera housing!
Dreamtime Verdict: Barbados
Small, fun, safe, intimate, off-the-beaten-path, and easy to access — that’s what Barbados is, in a nutshell. You really can’t go wrong here. There are fine art galleries, rum distillerie, old sugar plantations, wildlife refuges, and a really great hotels. Barbados has its own culture and cuisine, so it feels somewhat different than many of the other Caribbean islands. This is appealing to couples looking for a top wedding destination that has its own special feel.
