Destination Wedding packages in the South with Transat

Newly engaged? Congratulations! From the moment you said yes, you’ve been painting the perfect destination wedding ceremony in your mind…

Dabs of sunlight on a turquoise sea. A majestic arch adorned with exotic flowers, standing on ivory sands. Your sweetheart at the end of the aisle, all smiles. What could be more romantic than a tropical background for tying the knot down South?

The art of seaside ceremonies

Say “I do”—or renew your vows—as palm fronds sway in the breeze, and start your dream honeymoon in the same picturesque setting. Curl up on the beach for golden sunsets. Swim amid brightly coloured schools of fish. Or plunge into the heart of the verdant jungle for some adventure.

At Transat, we’ve partnered with some of the South’s most breathtaking hotels to offer you the destination wedding of your dreams while also protecting the natural splendour that attracted you there in the first place.

So… Time to start packing. Wedding dress? Check. Something borrowed, something blue and something old? Check. Now let us be your something new, and we’ll help make your nuptials a work of art.

Compte à rebours pour votre mariage à destination

La planification d’un mariage à destination peut vous sembler complexe. Mais vous n’êtes pas seuls dans cette joyeuse aventure: nos spécialistes de groupe (ou votre agent de voyages) et votre coordonnateur de mariage à l’hôtel vous assistent tout au long de vos préparatifs.

Suivez notre guide des tâches à accomplir avant de vous envoler pour votre célébration.

12+ months before

  • Set your wedding budget.

  • If you’d like to work with a travel agent, pick someone you get along with, who has experience with destination weddings and who’ll help you every step of the way.

  • Look at your favourite destinations, and decide what you’re looking for in a hotel (beachfront location, kid-friendly, chapel, rooftop terrace, etc.).

  • Decide on the number of guests.

  • Choose the hotel and package that best suit you, and book a block of rooms. Reserve the locations for the ceremony, cocktail and dinner at the desired times.

  • Send out the wedding invitations. Guests will book their place in your wedding group directly with your travel agent. Make sure you give an RSVP deadline. Tip: Create a Facebook group, and invite your travel agent to join so he or she can communicate directly with your guests to provide info.

10 to 11 months before

  • If you’d like to create a website and hashtag for your wedding, now’s the time.

  • Get your official documents together, and check that your passport is valid.

  • See what’s included in your package, and book your photographer, DJ, musicians, etc.

8 to 9 months before

  • Buy your wedding dress (and remember: you’re going to a tropical climate!).

  • Ask your guests to pay their booking deposit with your travel agent.

  • Now that you have a better idea of how many people will attend, budget and plan key elements with your hotel (package, theme and colours, menu, extras, etc.).

6 to 7 months before

  • Decide what the bridesmaids will wear.

  • Buy accessories for the big day, such as jewelry and shoes.

  • Your guests’ attendance is their wedding gift. So instead of having a wedding registry, why not set up a honeymoon registry with your travel agent? Any loved one who can’t go to your wedding will be happy to contribute to your honeymoon fund.

4 to 5 months before

  • Organize a few activities for your guests. Why not plan a group excursion?

  • Buy stationery and any additional decorative elements you’d like (menu, chair sashes, place cards, centrepieces, etc.). Good to know: Transat’s group benefits include an additional piece of baggage for the wedding couple—ideal for those extra items.

2 to 3 months before

  • Choose gifts for your guests and bridesmaids.

  • Finalize your guest list, and pay your travel agent the full amount.

  • Discuss the remaining details with the hotel: flowers, wedding cake, special musical requests, etc.

1 month before

  • Schedule a meeting with the hotel wedding coordinator upon arrival and a short wedding rehearsal. Send the coordinator the seating plan, wedding day timeline and any other useful info, and confirm that all your requests have been duly noted.

  • If you’d like, plan a welcome cocktail or dinner with your guests at destination.

  • Book any beauty appointments you’ll need before your departure and once there.

  • Start packing your essentials.

Upon arrival

  • Arrange any welcome gifts or services for your guests.

  • Discuss any last-minute details with your wedding coordinator.

Wedding day

  • Get married!

Valid on all new bookings of Transat South packages made by wedding groups with a minimum of 10 adult passengers.

Celebrate your love with us

Renewing wedding vows

Was your wedding a blur of chiffon, champagne and photo ops? Do it differently this time, and savour every moment at island pace. Do you wish your first ceremony was a tad cozier? Make your wish a reality with a more intimate wedding under the warm glow of the Caribbean sun. Is your wedding anniversary coming up? Celebrate it in style with a seaside idyll.

There are plenty of reasons for saying “I do”—again—in the South, where nature has already carved out luxuriant settings for your storybook romance. And once you retie the knot on ivory sands, in a lush garden or on a cliff overlooking the ocean, you’ll want to do it over and over again. You know, for love.

Your dream honeymoon

After the big day comes the sizzling honeymoon. With so many destinations to choose from in Europe, the South and United States, where will you kick off happily ever after?

Romantics, fall in love with Cuba’s white-sand beaches, the Greek islands’ mythical beauty or France’s endless charm. Foodies, savour la dolce vita in Italy or sip a delicious port wine— in Porto. More the adventurous sort? Uncover the secrets of the Mayan ruins in Mexico or explore the castles of Ireland.

Perhaps basking in the sun is more your pace. If so, wait until you see the honeymoon packages. No matter where you honeymoon, wedded bliss is sure to follow.
