Family-Friendly Destination Wedding Ideas

If you're planning a kid-friendly destination wedding, keep these things in mind:

  • Book an all-ages resort - first and foremost, you'll want to make sure your chosen resort accommodates guests of all ages (some all-inclusive resorts (like these) are exclusively 18+). 
  • Look into the amenities - depending on the age group of your younger guests, you'll want to see what activities are available for them onsite, such as babysitting services, kids clubs, teens clubs, waterparks, etc. 
  • Keep them entertained - consider having kid-friendly entertainment at your reception, such as sparklers on the beach or a bonfire for s'mores. 
  • Consider the adults - whether it's a few hours at the spa or rooftop bar at sunset, it's important for the adults to relish in the R&R of being in paradise! 

Planning a Family-Friendly Destination Wedding: FAQs

Should I invite children to our destination wedding?

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with inviting young children to your destination wedding. Ultimately, it’s up to the parents to decide whether or not to take them along, but rest assured, many all-inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean are more than accommodating towards families. Alternatively, you can decide to have a kid-free destination wedding and book an adults-only resort.

What are the best kid-friendly wedding destinations?

The following destinations have wonderful kid-friendly wedding resorts and amenities:

  • Riviera Maya, Mexico
  • Cancun, Mexico
  • Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
  • Montego Bay, Jamaica
  • Negril, Jamaica
  • Turks & Caicos
  • Costa Rica
Do kids stay free at a destination wedding?
Yes, they certainly can! Many all-inclusive resorts will offer complimentary accommodations for kids and teens throughout the year, so be sure to consult your Destination Wedding Specialist to take advantage of this option.
