Almon Travel believes that a destination wedding, with sun, sand and surf, is usually less expensive than a traditional at-home wedding. You get a built-in honeymoon following the wedding, perhaps at a different resort. With over 45 destination weddings in the past two years, in a variety of Caribbean locations, Almon Travel has plenty of experience.
