Why are you having a destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

So many reasons!


1) My fiancé has always wanted a destination wedding

2) I've always wanted a small wedding, and at home we would've had 300+ guests

3) Much more affordable, see reason #2

4) We get to spend a week on vacation with a few close friends and family, as opposed to mere hours saying hello to hundreds of distant relatives

5) Getting married on a beach in Mexico will be gorgeous!

I have always wanted a destination wedding for as long as I can remember. However, once we actually got engaged we decided to do a small local wedding instead. We figure a DW would be too expensive (we would have to pay for my parents because they are broke) so I gave up my dream and tried to do the best I could with a local wedding. Well with our small budget we couldn't do ANYTHING we wanted locally. Even doing a small weekday wedding and dinner with immediate family only and a cocktail reception on a Friday came to $15,000. Which is our entire budget. I have never been more frustrated than trying to cut things to fit our budget and realizing that we wouldn't be having fun at all. My fiance's brother had a DW (which was amazing) and he really talked us up about how inexpensive it was. We started looking into DWs and decided to go for it. After that, everything has fallen into place. It's amazing how easy things are when you're on the right path. :)


Essentially my reason are the same as everyone else's: a week spent with close friends and family, an intimate wedding in a gorgeous setting, getting more for our money, and giving my parents a vacation they never had.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
