I put together a quick read on the top 10 reasons why destination weddings are the modern trend...enjoy!
1. IT FITS THE BUDGET
Destination Weddings can be far less expensive for couples than a traditional wedding at home. This all depends on the size and requirements of the groom and bride.
2. PLANNING IS EASIER
The stress of planning your wedding falls to your Destination Wedding Specialist and your resort wedding co-ordinator. You envision it, and let everything else fall into place.
3. QUALITY TIME
You get a chance to spend more quality time with the family and friends in a more intimate setting for a longer period of time â€“ not just a day as with a traditional wedding at home.
4. THE LOCATION
Barefoot on a beautiful white-sand beach, surrounded by the lush tropical gardens or surrounded in a gazebo overlooking turquoise waters or even exchanging vows in an Italian Villa..these are just a few of the breath-taking setting choices in collection for destination weddings.
5. EVERYTHING IS IN ONE PLACE
No time wasted travelling from the church, to a park or garden for pictures, then to the reception. From the walk down the aisle to the last dance, everything takes place at your resort.
6. ITâ€™S A VACATION TOO
Not only do your family and friends get to witness and celebrate your vows, after the ceremony everyone gets to relax and enjoy a vacation too.
7. SMALLER GUEST LIST
Due to monetary reasons or time constraints, attending a destination wedding may not be for everyone and those that attend are usually the ones that are most dear to you
8. NO FAMILY FEUDS
A destination wedding provides an equal playing field between the families and more importantly, no uncomfortable decisions for couples to make that may cause a sticky situation between families.
9. THE GUYS LIKE IT TOO
Guys seem to get more excited about a destination wedding and even the groom becomes more involved in the planning process. Organizing smaller events such as golfing or sailing with his buddies, makes him happier than picking out table centerpieces and d©cor.
10. AND THE HONEYMOON BEGINS
If desired, you can begin your honeymoon immediately after the ceremony. No early morning planes to catch, no time wasted travelling and no additional costs.
