When choosing a destination wedding to a place like Bocas del Toro, you are creating an experience beyond just a traditional wedding.

It is also an experience that is memorable for your guests because they are often reunions for those close to you. It is incredible for different groups of a couple’s friends and family to come together for a great experience. For Bocas del Toro in particular, you will love traveling to a tropical place in the Caribbean. It is a great place for a wedding with its warm temperatures. September is a dry month, and a great one if you are open to choosing a date.  

Traveling with a Group

When traveling for a wedding, there are some tips that the couple can share and plan for to help the entire group. A great way to save money and spend time with family is through large rentals, such as a house or large space. In the days that the group spends together, it is helpful for the couple to plan optional activities for those interested in specific group events. However, make it known that none has to be mandatory. Some enjoy an itinerary while others prefer to spend some time on their own. For events with groups, be sure to put together information on how people can get from where they are staying to the various locations where wedding events will be. The more the couple can plan for logistics, the smoother things will be. With many places in Bocas del Toro being remote, print off copies in case there is no cell phone service.
