Who pays for what in a destination wedding?
When planning a destination wedding, the couple will typically pay for their own accommodations, airfare and the wedding package at their chosen resort venue. Destination wedding guests will be expected to pay for their own travel arrangements, but the couple will oftentimes secure a group room block to ensure the best prices are available for their loved ones to take advantage of. Couples may also choose to book a group excursion or other private events, such as a farewell brunch or spa day, that will be at their own expense.
No matter what size or theme for your big day, we've got you covered.
