Look into 2021 for Your Destination Wedding!
The COVID-19 pandemic has made things difficult for anyone planning a large event, but for many brides and grooms, the struggles have been severe. The arguably most important day of your life is being postponed, canceled or turned into something completely unlike what you imagined. Pandemic or no, it’s heartbreaking not being able to celebrate that milestone with your closest friends and family.
If you planned a destination wedding for this year, you were faced with many difficulties. Travel bans, cancellations from resorts or airlines and then just the fear that you might be endangering your relatives by asking them to travel.
If you’re still holding out hope that you’ll be able to go forward with a 2021 destination wedding, rest assured that it’s entirely possible.
Picking the best destination for a destination wedding is important. Here are five that we recommend.
Is St. Lucia Your Choice for Your Destination Wedding?
St. Lucia is world-recognized as one of the most romantic destinations in the Caribbean. You couldn’t pick a better location for a truly memorable destination wedding. Just imagine the gorgeous wedding photos, with the dramatic Pitons in the background.
Additionally, because St. Lucia is located outside of the Caribbean’s “hurricane belt,” you can plan your trip for nearly any time of year and have spectacular weather.
St. Lucia also offers a wide variety of luxury properties that nearly all host weddings on a regular basis. You can be assured of a fantastic setting and a staff that knows what they’re doing.
Any guest that you invite to this destination wedding would truly be lucky to attend.
St. Lucia is currently open to travel, but you can keep an eye on their traveler restrictions and guidelines, here.
Mexico’s Destination Wedding’s
Many travelers who have booked with Anytime Travel Agency are finding that Mexico is a destination where they feel safe and secure traveling, even in the midst of the pandemic. The country is truly pulling out all the stops when it comes to guidelines and precautions.

Stunning rainforests and unique beaches offer you endless backdrops for your wedding day. It will be amazing.
