Ready to plan your destination wedding in 2022 but worried about COVID restrictions?
I am breaking down the top 3 locations to safely host your destination wedding in 2022, in this post!
Many of us have dreamed of our wedding since we were little.
You’ve probably thought about your wedding down to the details.
I’m willing to bet that a lot of those details reflect your personality!
Your wedding is one of the biggest events of your life and it should be as unique as you.
As a travel agent, when working with my couples to plan their destination wedding, I love getting to know the couple more personally so I can match them with their dream resort & location!
Those details you’ve dreamt about, also extend to your chosen location!
Curious to know more about why you should work with a travel agent to plan your destination wedding in 2022? Read the details in this post!
Planning a destination wedding in 2022 has one big hurdle, and that is the current travel restrictions due to COVID.
Does that make it impossible to travel? NO!!
However, travel restrictions and limitations are ever-evolving which can make planning a destination wedding in 2022 a bit tricky.
Rest assured that travel agents are on top of monitoring current guidelines and restrictions and we are in constant communication with the resorts that we recommend!
The resorts are doing a great job making sure their guests are safe and feel welcomed even during these uneasy times.
Enhanced measures are in place at each location to protect all of their guests.
I have traveled twice in the past 6 months and stayed at 3 different resorts, each for a week at a time.
My personal experience left me feeling safe and comfortable knowing that the resorts and airlines have gone through extensive training to stay in compliance with COVID-19 protocols.
On January 26th 2021, according to the new CDC order, all international travelers (2 years or older) including returning U.S Citizens – must show proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken 72 hours in order to board a flight back to the USA (in order to return home you must tested negative)
This news made everyone take a step back on their travel plans once again.
So how did the travel industry accommodate this without leaving their guests stranded?
Many resorts in the Caribbean are leading the way for reopening measures by providing COVID testing directly on-site!
The resorts that do not provide on-site testing can easily direct their guests (you) to the nearest testing facility.
And if you’ve already had COVID you can provide official documentation in order to bypass the entire testing process.
Have you already had the COVID vaccine? So far, you are still required to be tested.
But don’t despair, we are seeing that with the increase of the vaccination roll-out, travel regulations and orders are becoming slightly more lenient.
A huge part of my job as a travel agent is to stay on top of all the new regulations and guidelines.
Having that information ready to go over and explain in detail to my clients allows them to be fully prepared before they make a booking decision.
This allows my clients to book their trips with confidence and to feel comfortable about making the decision to travel again!
With that said, I’ve put together the top 3 locations for destination weddings in 2022!
The reason these 3 locations are the currently most popular for destination weddings in 2022 is that out of the countless options available, these locations are on top of their game in their industry!
These 3 destinations offer all-inclusive resorts with the best freebies to their couples as well!
For example, free nights add to your stay based on the number of guests attending your wedding!
The wonderful thing about all-inclusive resorts is that there is an all-inclusive resort for everyone!
Resorts can range in size from boutique-style to larger-sized resorts that even have their own water parks!
All-inclusive resorts with water parks, not your thing?
There are plenty of more luxurious upscale resorts that will cater to your specific needs!
There are couples-only, adults-only, and family-friendly resorts!
The options are endless.
Truly, there are so many amazing choices that it would be hard to pick one that you love!
That’s where I come in!
As a travel agent, I help my couples find the perfect right fit for their dream destination wedding!
It’s also important that I find a great experience for their guests.
One of the main reasons my couples love the 3 locations below?
These locations also provide great deals to their guests!
That means that your guests only have to pay one fee for their entire stay!
Upon arrival, your guests won’t need to break out their wallet again!
All of their meals, drinks (yes, even alcoholic beverages!), gratuities, non-motorized water sports, entertainment, room service and even an in-room mini-bar refilled daily is ALL INCLUDED!
Here are the top 3 locations for destination weddings in 2022!
2022 Destination Wedding in the Dominican Republic
First up on my list of destination wedding locations for 2022, The Dominican Republic!
The Dominican Republic has a vast landscape!
From gorgeous white sandy beaches with dreamy blue waves to amazing caves and national parks!
Did you know that the Dominican Republic is also home to some of the most prestigious golf courses?!
Within the last year, I have worked on becoming a Dominican Republic Travel Specialist.
I can’t wait to visit again in April and do some in-depth site inspections for my couples!
Popular spots in the Dominican Republic for destination weddings are Punta Cana, Cap Cana, La Romana!

For my own upcoming travel plans, I’ll be taking in some education and attending a Destination Wedding conference in The Dominican Republic this April!
2022 Destination Wedding in Mexico
Second on my list of destination wedding locations for 2022 is gorgeous Mexico!
The landscape of Mexico is beautiful and steeped in the country’s rich history.
I personally visited Cancun last year and just fell head over heels in love with it!
At the center of Mexico, you will find high mountains and deep canyons.
To the north, you will find sweeping deserts, and in the south and east dense rain forests!
It’s hard not to fall in love with Mexico!
The stretch of land called the Yucatán Peninsula juts into the Gulf of Mexico from Mexico’s southeastern tip.
It was once the home of the Maya civilization, an ancient culture whose amazing buildings can still be seen and visited today.
The Yucatan Peninsula is the hot spot for destination weddings in Mexico!
The people of Mexico are so friendly and hospitable.
I can’t wait to visit again and check out more resort options and site inspections for my destination wedding couples!
2022 Destination Wedding in Jamaica
Last but not least on the list for destination wedding locations in 2022 is Jamaica!
Jamaica has lush mountains, rainforests, reef-lined beaches, waterfalls, and it’s accented by the beautiful sound of reggae music and soft steel drums.
If you are searching for an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica for your destination wedding, Montego Bay is where you want to be!
The majority of Jamaica’s all-inclusive resorts are located in Montego Bay.
Montego Bay is known for its British-colonial architecture and includes endless opportunities for things to do and see on your stay.
If you are looking for a more intimate beachy experience, then you’ll want to head to Negril!
Negril is smaller in size but still has many resort options to choose from.
Negril is best known for its white beachy sands, turquoise waters, snorkeling, and diving!
You will feel right at home in Jamaica with its friendly and welcoming citizens!
The fantastic thing about all three of those locations for a 2022 destination wedding is that they each have superb weather all year long!
