Wedding Ideas

It’s one of the few places in the world where you can literally go from a bathing suit to a tuxedo in the same afternoon. When planning a wedding, that variety offers amazing opportunities that you can tailor to your own individual taste. Want to go embrace the island lifestyle? Why not have a ceremony on the beach? Of course, there are plenty of traditional sites for the ceremony, too. Or maybe you fall somewhere in the middle of those two options. In that case, a private home or other similar location might be best. Whatever your decision, it’s always best to hire someone local to help you find the ideal location.
