Destination weddings in the Caribbean grow more popular among American couples every year, and Secrets is savvy about that.
Both properties are outfitted with a special gazebo for the exchanging of vows; or, for couples seeking sand and surf, ceremonies can be arranged by the beach.
If you’re hoping for the latter, Secrets Maroma Beach is probably a better choice simply because the beach in that area of the Riviera is more picturesque than in any other. Truly white sands give way to crystal-clear green water that breaks into bright blue skies—it certainly gives one the impression of being in a house of worship.
Depending on how type-A you are, the resorts are equipped to do everything for you but read the vows. The most extensive of several packages includes a wedding organizer, a personal dressing assistant, gown ironing, hair and makeup styling, a banquet for 20, cakes, centerpieces, boutonnieres, a photo album, and a video of the ceremony.
That’s all in addition to more standard package perks such as room discounts and spa treatments. There’s even a portable aisle on hand; in other words, they’ll literally roll out the carpet for you.
