Best Puerto Rico Destination Weddings

Hotel El Convento

This unique venue in the heart of Old San Juan allows couples to be wed in a historic Spanish Colonial building that has all of the amenities of a fine hotel. The 350-year old converted Carmelite convent is steeped in romance, with amazing architectural details, including marble floors, colorful tapestries and stained-glass windows. Enjoy a sophisticated reception on the hotel's interior patio and wake up in your room to fresh flowers, chocolates and champagne.

Cathedral de San Juan

A popular choice for couples is to get married in the center of Old San Juan in the 500-year old Cathedral de San Juan and then have their reception in the adjacent Hotel El Convento. The cathedral is a Gothic wonder, and the second oldest church in the Western Hemisphere. A venue like this would gift a couple an unforgettable setting for an exchange of vows. Planning a wedding here can be a little tricky, so if your hearts are set on the Cathedral de San Juan, get the ball rolling early.

W Retreat & Spa - Vieques

The island of Vieques is a nature-lovers delight. The W Retreat & Spa - Vieques Island allows you to enjoy relative seclusion enwrapped by hip luxury. Planning the wedding is easy with the hotel's Wow Vows website. Among the wedding locations are Whisper Cove, with its secluded beach; the Fire Pit Lawn, with panoramic ocean views; and the Great Room, a Caribbean ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. An added delight: the catering is by the acclaimed Alain Ducasse

St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort

When the wedding cries out to be bespoke, you'll want to book the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort. The resort prides itself on special touches, such as customized linens and decor to state-of-the-art video and lighting. You'll have a choice of locations for your ceremony and reception, including the sweeping Estate Lawn; the grand indoor Astor Ballroom, wonderful for dancing the night away; and the Sea Breeze Lawn, a perfect venue for more intimate celebrations.

Inn on the Blue Horizon

You'll feel like you're being married at the villa estate of a close friend when you choose the Inn on the Blue Horizon on Vieques. The Inn pride itself on giving couples all the bells-and-whistles of a wedding with none of the fuss. The understated and elegant tradition at the resort is for the guests to wait in an open-air atrium for the bride to make her appearance, and then the party walks to the edge of the Caribbean Sea for the exchange of vows.
