A Destination Wedding is basically classed as any wedding taking place over 100km away from where the couple usually live. It doesn’t have to be at a resort.

It can be a choice of couples for many reasons including;

  • Saving money
  • In-between location for attending guests
  • For a particular location they always wanted
  • To extend their wedding day to a full week of celebration
  • To spend more quality time with friends and family
  • To have a gorgeous backdrop of nature
  • Planning a destination wedding can be like wading through muddy water

 

How do you decide where to go?

How do you know what looks good online will

actually be good for a wedding.

Did you know that often the cheapest resorts offer the

most expensive destination weddings.

 

Here are some things to take note of:

  • All inclusive resort does not mean your private wedding dinner will be included and can often cost over $100 a person!
  • All inclusive resorts often charge for drinks at your wedding reception and sometimes even a location fee too.
  • Free wedding is often a ploy like a door crasher and can end up costing you more

So what is good about doing a destination wedding?

  • If you pick the right place and book together as a group the bride and Groom can travel free
  • If you book well in advance you can get as much space as you need usually, I suggest a year in advance
  • If you book as a group you can sometimes get a free basic wedding package that you can add to to customize to exactly as you want it
  • Some resorts reward a group booking with Free events so you can have a party on more than one night
  • You get a wedding and Honeymoon rolled into one
  • You get quality time with friends and family. (statistics say that with a wedding of 100 guests including ceremony dinner and reception you may   only get 2 -4 minutes to talk to each guest at a regular wedding) Thats an expensive 2 minutes!
  • You can travel somewhere convenient to everyone... if you have friends and family all over the world choose a central location or a cruise.
