Thinking about planning a destination wedding but need to convince yourself that it’s the right fit for you? In this post I lay out four reasons to plan a destination wedding!
Your Destination Wedding is Something Different
Face it: At this point in your life, you’ve probably experienced a handful of hotel weddings, right?
While weddings of any kind are special, perhaps you’d like a different experience for your wedding. Something none of your friends have done. Something that aligns with your sense of adventure!
A destination wedding may be in your future!
Your destination wedding can be as adventurous as you want it to! From an intimate beach ceremony in Mexico to a full-fledged wedding adventure in Belize, your destination is a blank slate for you and your guests!
Turn Your Wedding into an Experience
A destination wedding is a great way to turn your wedding into a multi-day celebration of your love!
If you’re planning a Hawaii destination wedding, treat your guests to a sunset dinner cruise! Planning a destination wedding in Napa? Organize a winery tour for your out-of-town guests!
Keep it Intimate
There are few guarantees in life. One, however, is that your destination wedding will have fewer guests than it would if it were held close to your home.
Travel times and costs are all natural barriers to potential wedding guests. But the guests that WILL attend will be closer and more important to you!
It Can be More Cost Effective
Surprise! A destination wedding can actually be CHEAPER than a wedding close to home!
First, your guest count will be significantly lower, which means catering costs go down. Also, many resorts in far-flung locales offer all-inclusive packages that cater to your and your guests needs!
So there you have it–my top four reasons to plan a destination wedding!
