Describing all the reasons to get married at Coconut Bay in St. Lucia in just a few hundred words is a daunting task. The easier blog to write—and to read—would be to write about the reasons not to get married here instead. That would simply be a blank page!
After all, the St. Lucian tropical landscape provides some of the most gorgeous backdrops on Earth. And Coconut Bay can offer you and your spouse-to-be world-class wedding services and resort amenities. You put the two together, and you have the ideal wedding destination: an all-inclusive wedding venue located in the heart of a Caribbean paradise. So, out of the many hundreds of reasons why you should share your union with us, here are our top five.
Prevent Bridezilla Cameos
Traditional weddings can be incredibly stressful. Huge guest lists, a million decisions, and detail after detail to worry about can overwhelm even the happiest of couples. When you get married at Coconut Bay, your wedding plans will be in the capable hands of one of our professional wedding coordinators.
These experienced planners work right here on site to make sure your dream destination wedding becomes a reality. Your planner will be in touch with you as soon as you select a wedding package, and you’ll be able to communicate with him or her at every step of the way. Our wedding planners are famous for keeping stress—and Bridezilla—at bay.
Something for all Your Guests
Chances are, you’re going to have people on your guest list with children. In fact, you might even have a few children on the list itself! A Coconut Bay wedding allows your guests to bring the whole family instead of forcing them to scramble to find a sitter.
You see, Coconut Bay is actually two resorts—Harmony—our romantic, adults-only wing—and Splash, our fun-packed, family-friendly wing. While the parents on your guest list are attending your wedding, their little ones can be off having the time of their lives at our fully supervised Coconut Bay Kidz Klub. We also have a kid-approved waterpark, daily activities for families, and much more.
One Word: CocoMoon
There’s no need to settle for an ordinary honeymoon when you could enjoy a CocoMoon! Once you’ve said your I-dos, it’s time to celebrate on the Caribbean playground that St. Lucia has to offer. Some of our wedding packages come with honeymoon amenities, and we also offer separate CocoMoon packages for our newlyweds.
If you’re ready for a few adventures, take one of our many tours of St. Lucia’s wonders, including the towering Pitons, botanical gardens, Sulphur Springs, the Gros Islet Street Party, and more. You can see the marvels this island has to offer by land, by sea, or flying through the air on one of our zip line tours!
Land options include ATV, segway, cycling, Jeep safari, walking, and buggy tours. Sea options include our catamaran, pirate ship, Piton sail and snorkel, and scuba diving cruises. If your wedding guests can join you before or after the wedding, get in touch with the resort to book a group excursion on any of these options!
An Experience as Unique as Your Love Story
Of course, it’s hard to resist our beach wedding option, with breathtaking views of the Atlantic on the shores of our mile-long private beach. You can also take your vows in our oceanfront wedding gazebo for a more traditional setting. If you want a private dinner poolside, we can do that. If you’d like a beach bonfire party after your vows, we can do that too! Our wedding consultants are here to help you customize every detail of your wedding, from your colors to your dining menu, so it is quintessentially YOU.
A Tropical, and Economical, Paradise
The costs associated with a wedding back home can quickly add up. When you have a wedding near most of your friends and relatives, you often feel obligated to invite people you’re not all that close to. With a destination wedding, everyone expects you only to invite your nearest and dearest due to the need to travel, book accommodations, etc. So you save on your guest list, and with our affordable wedding packages, you can also save on the overall cost of your ceremony without sacrificing any frills.
For example, our Platinum Wedding Package accommodates up to 24 guests and includes amenities like a private three-course dinner reception, a three-tier wedding cake, and a one-hour cocktail reception with appetizers. For a bit more, you can purchase our Pearl Wedding Package, an incredible value for the price. Our Pearl Package includes everything offered in the Platinum package and more—bridesmaids bouquets, a DJ for three hours, and accommodation of up to 30 guests.
So how can you say no to a Coconut Bay wedding with all that?! Get in touch with us today to start planning your dream wedding on the shores of St. Lucia.
