Like destination weddings, destination bachelorette parties are becoming more and more popular – and for good reason. What could be more fun than taking a trip with your best girlfriends to celebrate your upcoming nuptials? We asked Marsha-Ann Brown, Director of Romance for Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts for her best tips on planning the ultimate girls’ getaway.
What factors should bridesmaids consider when choosing a location for a destination bachelorette party?
With friends and family spread all over, sometimes picking a location for a bachelorette party that’s on neutral territory makes the most sense. For example, if your cousins are from New York and your college friends from Texas, you might decide to meet somewhere like Atlantic City, or you might even invite everyone to jet off to an exotic location like South America or the Caribbean. Also, keep in mind the interests of the bride. Does she love to shop, sight see, party non-stop, or relax? Pick a destination that offers the activities and attractions you know she will enjoy most. Budget can also be a big factor in determining what works best for everyone, and a helpful hint is to keep the weather at the destination in mind when picking a location.

After months of experiencing the excitement, exhaustion, and stress that comes with planning a wedding, escape to the Caribbean – a perfect honeymoon location with none of the hassle and all the fun. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing getaway or an action-packed adventure, the Caribbean has it all! Check out just a few reasons why the Caribbean is a great honeymoon spot:
1) Romance & Luxury
The Caribbean offers scenic settings highlighted by azure blue waters and white sandy beaches, creating an ambience that embodies true romance. Whether you and your loved one are strolling on the beach, watching the sunset or just relaxing under a canopy of stars sipping champagne, your experience in the Caribbean will be one of your fondest memories. Something as simple as dining under the moonlight or as extravagant as a candlelit private meal in a lavish suite gives you the chance to unwind from months of wedding planning stress.
2) Island Hopping
One of the greatest advantages of honeymooning in the Caribbean is the proximity and accessibility to many islands. Each island has its own personality, history and way of life that can be easily experienced with a quick boat ride or flight. Hike through tropical foliage in Jamaica, wonder at the stunning blue waters of the Bahamas, or experience the wonders of Mother Nature on more secluded islands such as Antigua and St. Lucia.
