Destination Wedding Planning & Packages

Why Plan Your Destination Wedding with AMA Travel?

Planning a wedding can be stressful and a lot of work. So it’s no secret why destination weddings grow in popularity every year: they’re usually less expensive, in a beautiful, exotic location, and take much less effort to plan than a local ceremony and reception.

You can have your multi-tiered, flower-frosting, passion-fruit-infused wedding cake and eat it, too. With your personal AMA Travel wedding specialist, we help you create your ideal wedding down to the smallest, most romantic details.

Expect Romance

Newlyweds always mention how their wedding was such a whirlwind. They spend a year planning something that’s over in one day. With a destination wedding, you get the benefit of letting your AMA wedding specialist do the heavy lifting for you while you do the romantic stuff, like choosing the flowers and writing your vows. Plus, your trip is like a destination wedding and honeymoon all in one. You can choose to stay another week at the resort or move on and continue the adventure together.

Expect Fun

Think of your AMA wedding specialist as an extra maid of honour or best man—minus the drama and awkward speeches. Whether you want to learn how to surf with the guys, plan an all-day spa session with the girls, or get everyone together for a group excursion, we can make it happen. A destination wedding gives you the chance to party, relax, and connect with your close friends and family in an exotic locale—something that typical weddings are simply too busy to accommodate.

You Get Peace of Mind

Nothing’s going to stand in the way of your big day. From extreme weather to lost luggage, working along with the onsite Wedding Coordinator we want you to relax and focus on each other. AMA Travel’s 24-hour emergency assistance team and the resort’s back up plan are there if you need them. And with AMA, you have the added benefit of booking travel medical insurance with your vacation package so that you and your spouse-to-be are protected should an accident or illness occur.

  • All-inclusive vacation pricing includes round-trip airfare, airport transfers to and from your hotel, all meals and beverages, and most activities and entertainment at the resort.
  • While most guests prefer an affordable all-inclusive resort, couples typically want luxury. Your AMA wedding specialist can help you find the perfect arrangement.
  • The average cost of a travel package for a destination wedding is about $1,800 - $2,000 per person, tax included.
  • The average destination wedding group size is 25. However we have booked groups as large as 115.
