Updated: Sep 9, 2019
What is a Destination Wedding?
A Destination Weddingtakes place in a popular location away from the couple’s hometown and is commonly chosen as an option if the guests are spread all over the country.
Nowadays, Destination Wedding are becoming preferred options for several reasons chief among them is how special a destination Wedding can make the couple feel, the affordability yet the possibility of experiencing a grand wedding.
A large number of resorts or hotels offer complete Wedding packages that includes planning, event venue, food, décor and even rooms for very good deals. A destination Wedding also implies a smaller guest list compared to one in your own hometown, and these packages help take off the pressure on you, so you can enjoy your day as your meant to.
It is generally protocol for a destination wedding is that the invited guests pay for their own travel and accommodations while the couple pay for the wedding itself, the ceremony, reception, guest food and drinks and any other activities that they want for.
There's something picturesque and intimate about having only your closest and loved relatives or friends staying together at one place a hotel or a resort that comes with a luxurious setting, a lovely view and built in décor for your D-Day.
Destination weddings are often vacation time. You've two to three days of fun with family and friends. And this opportunity to have a mini-vacation with your loved ones comes very rare. So, enjoy this possibility. No Family drama, no need to force yourself to invite that distant, judgy Chachuor conservative mausi. A smaller guest also translates to less expenditure, money saved can be used to spend on your honey moon.
Weddings have always been considered the day when friends and family of both sides get together and the saddest thing about a wedding? Is that it lasts only one day. Destination Weddings, like mentioned earlier means a mini-vacation with your closest and dearest for at least 2 or 3 days not counting your Wedding day.
Destination weddings are also an option for those who aren’t up for a traditional wedding. While many opt for one as it connects them to the traditions of their ancestors and culture and hold some significance to them, some want to be more unique, with a ceremony and location that reflect their true nature.
Anyone say Honeymoons? who said you can have only one honeymoon? While some opt to spend their honeymoon at the same place as their destination wedding, the idea of having a honeymoon in the same place as your nearest and dearest is not so palatable. So often many opt to go on “real honeymoon”after that.
