While many individuals choose to have a traditional wedding, a destination wedding might actually be the best option for some couples.
If you’re looking to have the ultimate wedding of your dreams without the stress that generally comes with wedding planning, then a destination wedding might be for you!
Read on for the top four reasons why you should consider having a destination wedding.
1. They are Simpler to Plan
Most resorts have a full-time wedding coordinator who can help you take care of everything from the marriage license to the big day essentials like venue, photographer, and caterer.
They are experts who will ensure that everything is taken care of, and you can focus on enjoying your big day.
2. The Guest List Can Be Smaller
One of the most significant drawbacks to a traditional wedding is feeling obligated to invite everyone, especially distant family members and friends.
It adds unnecessary pressure to an already stressful time in your life.
With a destination wedding, it’s understood that the guest list maybe smaller.
This allows you to not only invite those closest to you for your special day, but also have a memorable getaway together with just your loved ones.
3. They Can Be More Affordable
The average cost of a traditional wedding for 150 guests is approximately $35,000 and goes up from there.
On the other hand, a destination wedding that includes flights, lodging, food/drinks, and a week-long honeymoon stay at an all-inclusive resort can cost less money and you are getting to experience more than just one day with your friends and family.
Your budget can go further, your experience can be more intimate, and you can build so many more memories with the most important people in your life.
4. There’s No Extra Travel Required for the Honeymoon
With a destination wedding, you’re already at your honeymoon location on your big day.
This means you don’t have to worry about rushing to the airport tired after your reception or potentially running into last-minute flight issues right after you’re married.
Getting married at a tropical resort allows you to fully enjoy the wedding day, knowing there’s no travel to worry about the next day.
You can sleep in with your spouse and wake up in paradise.
