St. Maarten Wedding
The island is divided into the French side, St. Martin, and the Dutch side, St. Maarten. Although there is a border between the two sides it is imperceptible to those traveling from one side to the other. It is one of the smallest sea islands divided between two nations, a division dating to 1648.
St. Maarten has a busy cruise port and bustling commercial district that has long been an active center for trade and tourism. In contrast, the French side is quieter and laid back. St. Maarten is more informal, is very Dutch in flavor and still has strong ties with fellow compatriots in the other Netherlands Antilles.
If the group attending your Caribbean wedding is looking for fun, St. Maarten is the place for them. The Dutch side is known for its festive nightlife, beaches, jewelry, exotic drinks made with native rum-based guavaberry liquors and plentiful casinos.
Your St. Maarten wedding can be at your hotel, on the beach, in a church, or at one of the many other venues that will provide just the right backdrop for your special day.
Many of the hotels have their own stretch of beach, but the ones that are more difficult to get to are especially worth exploring. Some are hugged by rugged cliffs and dramatic landscapes, while others are gently shaded by palm trees.
If your Caribbean wedding party is into diving, the visibility in the waters around the island typically extends for about 100 feet and sometimes can even reach up to 200 feet. The coral reefs offer a wide variety of sea life, and just off the coast of St. Maarten in the Great Bay lies the wreck of an English battleship dating back to 1801.
