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 :)

I consider a destination wedding a wedding a city that you do not live in - I don't think it needs to be super exotic although it of course can be

same... anywhere other than where you live. I think this forum is a good example. There are weddings everywhere from hawaii, to vegas, to Europe to the Caribbean, to florida, to california, to montana

The only thing I would add, is that your guests would have to travel as well.

 

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.

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.

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.

I currently live in NYC, but I am getting married in Dallas. I totally consider it a destination wedding because i'm still planning it from far away which I think puts me in the same boat of all the beach wedding girls.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
