Destination weddings are great – an intimate group of family and friends in an idyllic location. Many hotels and resorts will even organize the whole thing for you, and throw in a bunch of perks for guests and the happy couple to boot.

Luckily Cayman Airways is there to help you out. With an ongoing promotion, the airline is offering special rates for wedding parties: The bride and groom, plus groups of nine or less, can score round-trip airfare for $230 from Miami, $250 from Tampa, and $260 from New York. Where you’ll really find the most value, however, is for a group of 10 or more – pay just $199 from Miami, $211 from Tampa, and $231 from New York.
