10 Reasons Why Destination Wedding Are The Best!
Can’t decide whether to planning destination wedding or not? Here are 10 reasons why destination weddings are the best. Give this article a read and we are sure that you will fall in love with destination weddings.
1. They are easy on the pocket
The affordability of a destination wedding has many couples speeding off to the airport faster than you can say I do. Couples can get married at an all-inclusive resort and spend on average $15,000. The national average cost of a wedding in the US is $35,329.
2. There is no home field advantage
What should a couple do if her family is from the East Coast and his family is from the West Coast and the couple lives in Seattle? They meet on neutral grounds. Destination weddings are the great geographical equalizer because they take place in a neutral spot. Since the destination is largely new to everybody, your big day will be equally exciting to your guests as it is for you.
3. You will stand out from the pack
There are more than two million Americans who get married every year. One in 25% is a destination wedding. If you choose a destination wedding you won’t have to choose the same hometown venues all of your friends and family have booked.
4. Start your honeymoon early
Once you arrive at your destination you will already be in a relaxed mood as all of the wedding events begin. Many of the resorts offer honeymoon upgrades and special perks to the couple on their wedding night.
5. They are stress-free
Planning your big day considerable miles away from your living place sounds like stressful. But trust us, it's not so. Leave the details to your destination wedding specialist and on site wedding coordinators. They are familiar with all the wedding packages, and take care of all of the ceremony and reception essentials. All you have to do is bring your dress.
6. Everyone who attends is a VIP
Destination Weddings have less obligatory invites and more MUST have loved ones. Friends and family who “make the cut “often know that the list was limited and they love feeling important to the couple.
7. You won’t need much décor
If you choose a venue with a stunning backdrop, you won’t need to break the bank trying to cover it up with expensive flowers and décor. Nearly all destination weddings take advantage of their setting’s natural beauty.
8. Unique and memorable wedding Experience
A destination wedding allows you to get creative. You can have a traditional wedding, cultural wedding, or even a religious wedding and customize it so it reflects your personal style. Even if you choose to have a traditional wedding, a destination wedding will be unlike any other wedding.
9. Photo Ops Galore
Your wedding album also should be unique as your wedding. Because it will be a lifetime memory for you, reminding some of the most special moments of your life. In a local wedding, your photos will be taken in the usual places that you see every day. But, open the options to say, the Riviera Maya, and you’ve got the makings of some epic shots.
10. Enjoy quality time with your loved ones
The standard wedding at home lasts for 5 hours and the couple is running from table to table, trying to say hello to everyone. A destination weddings spans to a minimum of three days- which means you actually get to spend quality time with your closet family and friends.
