Recently I’ve found myself dreaming of a St. Barth’s luxury destination wedding. At only 9.5 square miles, this little island combines luxury, glamour, and beauty we can only imagine. I am so excited to now share with you why I believe St. Barts (also called Saint Barthélemy) is the new best luxury destination wedding getaway for this year!
Its actually incredible how many gorgeous options you have for a wedding venue in St. Barths. For a larger wedding, Le Sereno hotel is absolutely stunning and a malleable backdrop to fit your wedding’s every need. And for smaller weddings, there are AirBnBs and villas that can exceed even your wildest expectations. Personally, I love the two-level Micela villa located right on Flamand’s Beach for a small gathering. But for larger events, there is also a six-bedroom villa called the Oasis de Salines, with two pavilions, a pair of pools, three full kitchens, a wine bar, and even your own private path to Saline Beach! Finally, this AirBnB stay at Gustavia Views is perfect for a small weekend wedding getaway, with enough room for 20-30 people to come for the day, and room enough for family or the bridal party to stay with you as well.
Even if you choose to stay in a hotel for a much larger St. Barth’s luxury destination wedding, nothing about staying on this island is cookie cutter or boring. Small and luxurious boutique hotels are abundant! Like the Le Guanahani resort, located between Marigot Bay and the Grand Cal de Sac lagoon. Not only do they have a private coconut grove that offers a gorgeous backdrop for your ceremony, but their restaurant, Indigo, offers tropical and elevated seafood dishes poolside. Its sure to wow you and your guests!
Of course, you can always choose to have a classic beach wedding! But it wouldn’t be a St. Barth’s luxury destination wedding if there wasn’t a little flair added. Which is exactly what you’ll get if you choose to have your wedding at the Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France! They offer several options, including an especially unique under-water nuptial option (don’t worry, I have underwater cameras ready for us to capture it all)! Or you can stay above water and have your wedding at the Eden Rock resort, with your toes in the sand and a stone chapel offering panoramic and dramatic oceanfront views. You can then end the evening with an upscale party at the hotel’s Villa Rockstar or Villa Amancaya. They are essentially gigantic, classy, and all-inclusive party spaces for adults, right on the shoreline. While I haven’t had the opportunity to see them all, a quick search online shows that they have tons of excellent villa options for your wedding reception and after-party.
p.s. If a photo of you jumping in the pool at the end of the night with all your friends sounds like a great time, we’re going to have a great time together!
