St. Martin Weddings
The island is actually two countries. One side is Dutch, being part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (St. Maarten) and the other side is part of France (St. Martin). It is the smallest island in the world to have been partitioned between two different nations but this has existed for 350 years. Either one of the sides is perfect for a Caribbean wedding.
There is no checkpoint between the two countries and residents and visitors alike travel between the two sides freely.
The French side tends to emphasize comfort and elegance, exactly what couples desiring a St. Martin wedding are seeking. The beaches are secluded, the luxury resorts provide lavish accommodations and the restaurants offer the finest dining experiences anywhere in the Caribbean. The latest French fashions can be found in many of the shops and small cafes and charming bistros add a decidedly Gaelic flair to this side.
For adventure, there is diving in the deep waters surrounding the island, fishing in its abundant waters, or trying the zip-lines suspended high above a private forest reserve soaring between 200 year old mango and mahagony trees. Plenty to do for guests attending a Caribbean wedding on this unique island.
But the main feature of this side of the island is its cuisine. It is one of the few places in the Caribbean where couples arriving for their St. Martin wedding can get a “taste of France” at very reasonable prices. The availability of fresh fish and shellfish makes delicious seafood a prime menu item.
Whichever side of this island you decide to choose for your Caribbean wedding, let our Caribbean Wedding Specialists assist you in choosing the right accommodations for you and your guests as well as the perfect wedding venue.
