Traditional Ceremony

A traditional wedding is a magical picture of family and companions occupying the pews as the bride walks down the aisle towards her eagerly awaiting groom. After they exchange the vows, the wedding party and the guests can traditionally proceed to the dining hall to celebrate the event. This type of traditional or any religious ceremony can be arranged in Puerto Rico with the help of an expert event planner, who can find you a church or a temple, to suit your needs. Many majestic religious venues like Capilla Nuestra Sra de Lourdes, San Juan Cathedral and Saint Joseph Parish are present in Puerto Rico.

What’s more, you can arrange your traditional ceremony at a plantation house or a museum or an important site of historical significance, like the grand Eltz Castle.

Outdoor Wedding

As said earlier, the most preferred outdoor setting for a Puerto Rico wedding is a beach, which is no doubt a pleasant backdrop for a wedding which doesn’t need much of adornment. The crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea and breathtaking views make your wedding just the way you had dreamed about it. You can even get married on a cruise ship or can charter a yacht. You can also book the boat for the entire day and arrange your reception too on board.

However beaches are not the only ideal location for an outdoor Puerto Rico wedding. There are many resorts having villas offering stunning views of mountains, beaches and tropical jungles. Another superb option is to get married in a garden, like the wonderful Montoso Gardens or University of Puerto Rico Botanical Gardens. What’s more, you can make your big day one-of-a-kind by arranging it in El Yunque National Rainforest, El Portal Rain Forest or the magnificent Camuy Caves.
