A Destination Wedding is a ceremony and reception held in a vacation location away from the couple's home town and has gained in popularity in recent years. Today, this hip alternative allow a couple to combine the best of an adventurous honeymoon with a more traditional ceremony, and sometimes save money in the process!
Some destination weddings just involve the engaged couple, others include a few close friends and family, and still others are full blowout affairs with multiple parties over a long wedding weekend. The best part is that everyone attending is getting a vacation too.
Destination weddings take place in a number of locations, including the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, Europe or anywhere in the world.
How long in advance should you plan your Destination wedding?
Destination weddings take considerable planning and research, so it's best to start as soon as possible.
While 9-18 months is an ideal lead time for planning your destination wedding in order to secure the best travel rates, we have worked with many couples to plan amazing weddings within only a few months.
There are many reasons to choose a destination wedding. Destination weddings give couples and their families the chance to spend as little as three days or as many as you desire together in an exotic locale rather than just four or five hours in a banquet room.
They offer the wedding couple and their families the chance to truly bond and make memories that will last a lifetime.
The cost of a destination wedding is another reason couples may decide to plan one. Destination weddings can be as luxurious or simple as the couple likes and they're within reach for those with budgets small and large.
Additionally, destination weddings are unique and enjoyable for the couple and their guests.
