Definition of a Destination?

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to get all of your thoughts on exactly what is a destination wedding? For example, do you think a destination wedding means having the wedding at one of the exotic places like Puerto Vallarta, Hawaii, etc? Or do you think it's simply having your wedding at a destination other than the city in which you currently live?


That thought just crossed my mind and I thought I'd see what some of you had to say :)

To me, a DW is a wedding that takes place in a location thats at least a few hours away more more so in a different state. I live in MI so I would consider a wedding in Chicago being a DW. HOWEVER I think the main term for DW is referred to places like Cabo, LC or DR that sort of thing.

So, if we had gone to KS for our wedding, but my DH and his entire family live there, it's not quite the same thing.

I say everyone has to pack a bag.
I was thinking the same thing. FI and I are both from Newfoundland, so if we had decided to go "home" for a wedding I DEFINITELY would not consider that a destination wedding!! LOL

But I would typically think out of country for a DW.

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
