Perfect Destination Wedding
Grand Cayman is a place very dear to my heart because my husband and I got married there in 2008, and we have returned to visit every year since.
If you are considering a destination wedding then there is no place more perfect to get married than in the Grand Cayman! Just imagine walking bear-foot in the sand, hand in hand with the one you love, on your Wedding Day.
Visitors to Cayman must pay for a Special Marriage License to which costs around US$200. There are many choices for the ceremony itself, ranging from a resort wedding on the beach to a more traditional wedding in in a Chapel. Either way, there are many options for planning a perfect destination wedding to meet your budget and fulfill your dreams.
