Now that marriage equality is dominating the Western Hemisphere and Europe, when wedding bells are heard there are more alternatives for same-sex couples to choose from. One of the best alternatives for LGBTQ+ weddings is Puerto Rico. I know I’m a little biased, since Puerto Rico is my home place. But, trust me when I say Puerto Rico as a gay wedding destination is not only gorgeous and romantic but definitely a lot of fun.
Same sex marriage has been legal in Puerto Rico since 2015, making it easy for LGBTQ+ couples to get married at a hotel, hacienda, outdoors or even at a beachfront Airbnb. Wedding ministers like Get Married Puerto Rico and Lcda. Ana María Hernández have been holding beautiful LGBTQ+ ceremonies and can guide you through the process of obtaining your wedding license in Puerto Rico.
After your I do’s get ready to party at the birth home of the famous Piña Colada, swim in waterfall pools, sway in beachside hammocks or ride the longest zip line in the world at Toro Verde. Puerto Rico will make you feel welcome and has something to offer to every type of couple; from the adventurous ones to the more laid back ones.

Happy wedding planning!
