After years of being stuck at home, we are all itching to get out and start exploring again. One option many are pursuing is a destination wedding. It is a three-for-one trip – a celebration of your nuptials, getting out and seeing the world again, and a vacation!
By definition, a destination wedding is when your wedding does not take place in your current home location/area. A destination does not always mean international! So, how to begin? First, consider any places that have special meaning to you as a couple. Where did you meet? Where did you take your first big vacation together? When do you plan on getting married? Once you start answering these questions, some locations might come right off the table.
Also, consider the local customs, traditions, scenery, and other things that may appeal to you about a particular location and lean into it! This is one of the many charms of a destination wedding and can make bringing together your big day more manageable. Frequently destination weddings are smaller – both intentionally and by circumstance. Selecting an all-inclusive wedding package can allow you to put other time and resources into a celebration closer to home.
Wedding planning is overwhelming, and the idea of planning a destination wedding may feel even more so. But many venues offer detailed wedding packages, where all you need to do is make your payment and show up. As you explore your location and venue options, be sure to dig into everything that may be available. Trying to figure out the best vendors can be challenging at home, so finding a venue and wedding coordinator that you can trust with the connections to the best local people and things you need for your big day is a must. In addition to the fun parts of a wedding, there are also a lot of legal logistics to consider, even more so when you are abroad. Many wedding packages, such as marriage licenses and other legal documents, build in these needs. For weddings in places where you may not speak the language, having a trusted partner to help you navigate even the most basic of communication will be imperative.
Hearing the term “destination wedding” might make you start seeing dollar signs. The term “all-inclusive” may have even more dollar signs, but you will find that in the end, you will save money, reduce stress, and truly enjoy your day. And in reality, choosing that all-inclusive option may give you the option to focus on what really matters to you. Enjoying the feeling of marital bliss.
Now that you committed to a destination wedding, here are the top places to consider:
