Is a Destination wedding right for you?

You may be thinking of a dream wedding in the tropics with the sun setting while you say you’re i do’s, followed by a laid back beach party reception under the stars or it could be an ancient castle in the highlands of Scotland or perhaps a Tuscan villa in Italy’s wine country. Whatever you’re dream, with a little planning, and the right assistance it can not only be a fun process but one that could be less stressful, more economic, and far more memorable.

Pros and Cons
We would recommend that you make a list of the pros and cons of having a destination wedding. Here are some examples to get you started.
  • Economical for couple  (seach our destination pages for free weddings)
  • Less stress         
  • You can have a summer wedding in February
  • You get to spend more time with your friends and family to celebrate
  • It’s an exciting fun adventure
  • Less Stress, usually packages are set up so that you can just choose from the options that they offer
  • It’s a holiday for your guest s
  • You can combine your wedding and honeymoon
  • More time to spend with family and friends
  • Not everyone can afford to join you (but check with the resort to see if they can Webcast your wedding live)
  • You may find a Destination Wedding more stressful if you are the type of person who likes to control everything.
  • Some of your loved ones may not be able to make it due to health, age, or other reasons
  • In some cases fewer options for you to choose from for example table decorations may be what the hotel or resort decides...not you


Whatever you decide to do, take the time to enjoy every minute of this special exciting moment in your lives, what could be more fun than spending a holiday, celebrating your wedding than a destination wedding surrounded by the ones you love?

Benefits of a Combined Wedding & Honeymoon

Did you know that honeymoons typically account for 14% of the total wedding budget?  By combining your wedding and honeymoon you can save money!

  •      A destination wedding/honeymoon eliminates the need to scout and research two separate locations.
  •     No need to hire both a wedding consultant and a travel agent.  Your travel agent can arrange all of your details and put you in touch with the hotel’s wedding "co-ordinator" to plan all of your requests for the big day.
  • 2 in 1 options allow you to have your wedding in one destination and your honeymoon in another.  So not only do you save money, but you see two wonderful destinations.
