I’m also interested in this. We are pretty much in the same boat, as such, have decided on maybe waitilng until the spring, to attempt to keep costs down. We want to go to Jamaica, though. as it seems less of an issue as far as translating documents and whatnot. And no blood tests, as I know they require them in Mexico. We want to bring a couple guests, who will be paying for themselves, but I’m not planning on having a reception or anything, or any extras. I’ve done some research, and haven’t come up with much, so this would be very useful information for the brides that can’t/don’t want to spend a whole lot of money.

@mrs_pudding_pop:  In all my searches (albeit not tropical locations), I’ve never seen a wedding thrown in for free.  I’ve seen plenty of elopement packages that were options though.  It shouldn’t be too hard to find witnesses though, so no need to find a day where they employ specific people.

If I were searching I’d might have to narrow it down to a state/country first.  Is Hawaii in the picture?

There are lots of resorts that will offer a free basic wedding package if you stay for a certain number of nights, or book a certain number of rooms. It just seems like no one takes this route. They always seem to add lots of extras, and bring anywhere from 20-50 guests, are helping some people pay for flights, ect. So it’s hard to get a real idea of what the costs are when you aren’t intetested in all that. I haven’t been able to find much on this at all, so I think we’re just going to have to figure out which resorts offer the free packages, talk to a travel agent and go from there….. We might be on our own on this one, OP.

I got married at a Sandals resort and yes, you can get a free basic wedding package with a minimum stay. I think it’s 6 nights and 7 days. They have locations all over the place.
