What is a destination wedding?
A destination wedding is a wedding in an exotic location far from home. Most Beach Destination weddings take place in the Caribbean on islands such as Roatan. A destination wedding can be as large or small as the couple desires. Some couples prefer to celebrate by themselves, some with only close relatives, while others choose to invite as many guests as they would to a traditional wedding back at home. A destination wedding is perfect for those with guest lists and budgets of all sizes.
Why plan a destination wedding?
There are many reasons to choose a destination wedding. Destination weddings give couples and their families the chance to spend three to seven days together in an exotic location rather than just four or five hours in a banquet room. They offer the bride and groom's families the chance to truly bond and make memories that will last a lifetime. The cost of a destination wedding is another reason couples may decide to plan one. Destination weddings can be as luxurious or simple as the couple likes and they're within reach for those with budgets small and large. Additionally, destination weddings are unique and enjoyable for the couple and their guests.
Why book our wedding with Roatan Events?
Planning a wedding requires considerable time, organization and expertise. Planning a wedding far from home can be especially challenging to do on your own. Our experienced Wedding Specialists make the process simple for you and your guests. Your Wedding Specialist will help you choose the perfect location and resort and book your honeymoon and travel accommodations for you and your guests. Your wedding planner will not only be there to help you through the planning process, but will also be on-site for the setup and duration of your wedding.
Why not work directly with a resort and use their on-site wedding coordinator?
Many resorts and hotels offer an on-site wedding coordinator for $300-400 to help organize your wedding. These "wedding coordinators" do not have the expertise or passion to assist you all the way. Most of the time, they are simply an employee the resort appoints to do this role. Your Wedding Specialist, on the other hand, has full capabilities and experience to make sure your planning process is as simple as possible and that on that special day you will get exactly the wedding you want.
But isn't it cheaper to book my wedding directly through the resort?
No. Our clients are always surprised at how our prices are much cheaper than booking their wedding directly with the resort they choose. Also, most hotels and resorts offer standard wedding packages that include only the basic features, and do not offer customization or themed weddings, which means that you will end up with an "all white" standardized simple wedding, instead of getting the personalized wedding you've always dreamed of.

This amount gets put towards your final payment. Couples who do not want to confirm the event yet after more than three customized updated quotes but would like to continue customizing their wedding, can choose to do this commitment-free for only $550. Your wedding Planner will continue to elaborate as many quotes and packages as you like and will continue to give you consulting on your wedding. You can then choose to do your wedding with us or another company. This amount gets put towards your final payment if you then decide to confirm the wedding through us. Please note that by choosing this option, it does not guarantee that the wedding location and services you liked will be available later on.

Contact our wedding planner to receive a detailed list of the documents required and the procedure to be followed.
Can we ship items ahead of time?
Yes, but currently you can only ship by ocean freight which takes 4-6 weeks and prices are costly. Contact our wedding planner to see if items can be purchased locally for the same or lower price, or we will help you get them shipped here on time for your wedding.
