Why Have a Destination Wedding?
For the couple who is torn between a destination wedding and the usual hometown affair, it can be challenging to decide which path is "the one" to take. More than likely, you are weighing your own wedding wishes (and needs) with those of your guests. You may also be weighing the benefits.
There are several advantages to tying the knot far from home. Below is a list of reasons why so many couples prefer to host a destination wedding abroad. Be warned: After reading this list, you may find yourself wondering, why NOT?
Destination weddings typically cost just a fraction of the average U.S. wedding at home. Couples can jet over to Cabo, say their vows in the sand, and enjoy an unforgettable evening of dancing and romance typically for under $10,000. This cost covers the basic wedding package (both ceremony and reception), the couple's flight and hotel stay, as well as extended accommodations for the honeymoon.
Think about some of the scenes in your favorite wedding movies. From the overwhelmed "snow beast" in My Big Fat Greek Wedding to Steve Martin's breakdown in Father of the Bride, there is a common theme that makes these moments so funny, and also so very real - the stress of wedding planning!
Many couples go big for their "big day" because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The same mindset can - and should! - be applied to a destination wedding. Why not make the most of this moment and start your love story in an exotic, romantic destination? Your loved ones will also enjoy this experience, providing even the least adventurous relative a great excuse for an amazing trip. Many choose to have a destination wedding for the unique and unforgettable experiences they offer (for both couples and guests alike!).
