Destination weddings are growing in popularity and it’s no wonder why. Many resorts offer amazing deals for onsite weddings, some even will do a basic set-up for free. For couples looking for luxury and elegance, the possibilities are endless. If you want to elope, options are much more dreamy than the drive-through weddings of the past. You can fly to a tropical island, pronounce your vows and then spend your honeymoon in paradise. Eloping to an exotic location is a popular trend in weddings. Beach weddings can have tons of guests or just the two of you. Whichever destination you choose, your wedding will be a lasting memory.
Is a Destination Wedding for you? Here are some things to consider if thinking about marrying away from home:
Small or large wedding? Most destination weddings tend to be smaller then the grand scale weddings people have at home. It may be hard for some of your friends and family to fly to your wedding, so the guest list may be smaller then you wanted. If you don’t want a lot of people at your wedding, this is a great option to easily cut guests without insulting them.
Less money spent. Resorts offer great deals on weddings, so you can have exotic weddings without a large bill. You many not have as many options when it comes to the details of the wedding, but can usually add some special additions that are important to you.
Legal matters. Having a foreign wedding can sometimes be a little sticky when it comes to getting it done legally and easily. You may have to arrive earlier then you prefer for some destinations to make it legal.
Ready for the Honeymoon. No long plane trips after the wedding is finished. Stay at your location for your dream honeymoon. You can switch hotels after the wedding if you want, without going a long distance from your wedding resort.
