Is a Destination Wedding for you?


Does the idea of less wedding planning for you, & more focus on the excitement of your wedding sound enticing?  Are you considering having a Destination Wedding?  Does the idea of getting married on a tropical island with nature as your back drop and sand between your toes sound like something you would like?  Perhaps a ceremony in the hills of Tuscany Italy is more your style!  Destination Weddings are becoming very popular and for good reason!  The planning alone for the bride & groom can be a very stressful time.  Where to have it, when to have it, music, venue, food, décor and then the agonizing art of choosing which vendors to provide you with all the things you desire.  The list is endless!  Who want’s stress when planning for what should be one of the “happiest moments” of your life?!  Choosing to have a Destination Wedding takes away a lot of the planning for the bride and groom.  Opting to book with a Travel Consultant can help you choose the destination that will work best for your vision, your budget, and your guests too!  Should you opt to go with an all inclusive resort, 9 out of 10 times the wedding planner is provided as part of the wedding package you choose.   The Wedding Planner then helps you make the ceremony and reception choices.

 

 

 

No wedding is going to occur without some stress and worry of course.  But next I’m going to give you 6 great reasons that may give you the ability to answer “Yes, a Destination Wedding is for us”

6 REASONS WHY A DESTINATION WEDDING COULD BE FOR YOU:

  1. EASY TO PLAN – Destinations have packages to choose from! Many times it’s  A, B, or C. – compared to the paralyzing number of choices that go along with local weddings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   The planning alone for the bride & groom can be a very stressful time. Where to have it, when to have it, music, venue, food, décor and then the agonizing part of choosing which vendors to provide you with all the things you desire. The list is endless! Who want’s stress when planning for what should be one of the “happiest moments” of your life?!Choosing to have a Destination Wedding takes away a lot of the planning for the bride and groom.  Opting to book with a Travel Consultant can help you choose the destination that will work best for your vision, your budget, and your guests too!  Should you opt to go with an all-inclusive resort, 9 out of 10 times the wedding planner is provided as part of the wedding package you choose. The Wedding Planner then helps you make the ceremony and reception choices.   Let your Travel Consultant be your liaison between you, the guests, the resort, and the onsite Wedding Planner.
  2. HONEYMOON HEAD START – You can be at your resort of choice for your honeymoon, or you can hop to another location within your destination. Resorts treat their honeymooners like gold. Want to be pampered? Have your honeymoon follow your nuptials and the pampering is even more enjoyable! Remember – you have been there for a few days already so you’ve now established some friendships with the employees at the resort.
  3. SMALLER GUEST LIST – Destination Weddings tend to make for an intimate affair filled with a lot of sincere emotions and much needed family and friend time. Having a local venue wedding, we tend to invite many more then necessary. Destination weddings are usually limited to those people that really matter in your lives.  It’s an amazing way for the families to get know one another.  And for those guests that may not want to come anyway, they won’t spend the $$ to go.  This ensures the closest people only.
  4.  AMAZING PICTURES – You have a natural & beautiful back drop for your photos! You don’t have to venture off to that special place to have pictures taken after you’ve exchanged your vows. Your nuptials, reception, and amazing picture captures are all done in one convenient location. Tip – create a hashtag for your wedding so that the pictures your friends and family capture can be enjoyed in one convenient place!
  5.   NOT AS EXPENSIVE AS YOU THINK – Assisting my wedding clients, and booking my very own Destination wedding, I have learned that it’s very similar to buying a car. The more “bells and whistles” we add to a car, the higher the cost of that car is, correct? The same holds true for your Destination Wedding.   Costs for the wedding depends on what you desire for your big day. You get to choose which bells and whistles are a MUST on the wedding list, and those that you can perhaps, do without. The option of having your wedding at an all-inclusive resort is a great bonus for the bride and groom as well as your guests.  There is a tremendous bonus of  all food, drink, entertainment provided for one price!  Bonus –  those that want to enjoy a few alcohol beverages – unlimited alcohol but zero chance of drinking and driving! Rooms are walking distance!
  6. TAKE THAT LONG-NEEDED VACATION–  The bride and groom have a built in honeymoon after their wedding, and your guests have a built in vacation to enjoy either before or after the wedding.  You and your guests have just packaged your wedding, your honeymoon, and their much needed vacation all together! How easy was that? And for your guests – many time it’s a vacation that they have been putting off for years. Your closest friends and family will move mountains to be at your big day, and since they are there, well of course – they are going to enjoy some down time themselves.  It’s a win/win for all who attend!  Bonus – Nobody has to cook or clean anything or worry about food…zero responsibilities mean MAXIMUM relaxation!
