Once you land, you’re in a conservationist’s paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean: the island serves as sanctuary to birds, turtles, and endangered tortoises.

But, um, every wedding forces guests to spend tons of money to travel long distances, usually to satisfy the couple's selfish desire to wed in a no-name suburb.

But a Caribbean wedding on a private island, without Wi-Fi, television, or phones -- and with a world-class diving facility founded by no less than a Cousteau? Vincent, a 22-cottage retreat in the Grenadines, truly earns the title of “respite,” with barbecues, yoga, sailing, and myriad diving excursions serving as the lead-up to a perfectly unhurried beachside ceremony.
