Four Reasons You May Want to Opt for a Destination Wedding
July 6, 2017
Getting married is a great way to bring friends and family together, but planning details and costs can get out of control quickly. You can have more fun and keep stress levels down on your big day by having a destination wedding. Here are four reasons you and your fiancé might want to do so.
If your chosen location isn't set up for weddings, a lot of the event planning (and added stress) will fall to you. You can instead have a destination wedding at a resort that will provide ceremony space, reception services, catering, and accommodations. Destination weddings usually come as a package deal, so all costs will be quoted upfront.
More Intimate Group
While all of your family and friends might not make it to a destination wedding, you might find a smaller gathering can make your wedding even more special and memorable. Your guests can make a vacation out of your big day as well. You may want to consider hosting a low-key reception when you get home, to celebrate with those who couldn't travel to your wedding.
Honeymoon on Site
If your destination wedding is already in paradise, you can stay on with your new spouse and segue right into your honeymoon. Just remember that other guests and family members may be making a longer vacation out of your wedding as well. You may want to move to a more secluded area within the resort or make sure others know that once the wedding is over, they should enjoy themselves but not expect a group vacation with the newlyweds.
Built-in Backdrop for Photos
You can be guaranteed unique, memorable wedding photos, complete with stunning settings. If you choose to have a country Echuca wedding there's the majestic Murray River as it winds past Moama on Murray and Dungula Events Center. You wouldn't need to schlep all over a city or countryside to get the perfect wedding shot because you are already staying in your version of paradise.
While you might have your hopes set on a larger, more traditional wedding close to home, don't discredit the destination option until you've given it some thought. You might find that preparing for a vacation in paradise is easier, and much more fun, than making wedding plans on your own.
