Getting Married in Antigua
Antigua is part of the country of Antigua & Barbuda, (Barbuda is a flat coral island about 30 miles north of Antigua) and they form part of the Leeward islands of the Caribbean. Even though most of the Caribbean is warm, most of the time, Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands with temperatures of 25°C to 30°C during the summer and it’s still about 20°C during the winter.
The other great attraction of Antigua is the beaches and there’s plenty of choice from places to just lay out and relax or to try out the local water sports. Then when the sun goes down, there’s plenty to do during your stay, including duty free shopping in the high end shops, visiting the casinos or Carnival, which is celebrated from late July to early August.
