5 Reasons Why You Should Have A Destination Wedding

By  | 

Who doesn’t want to say their vows in a fairy tale like setting, with the wind blowing in the hair, the sun shining and palm trees swaying in the distance? If you are one of those couples who are relatively undecided about whether to say yes or no to a destination wedding, let us help you decide. We compiled a list of reasons as to why you should say YES to a destination wedding:

You get to call only the people who really matter

Ever gone to a wedding where you knew just two people from a guest list of 2000? The great part about having a destination wedding is that you get to be really selective about who you want to call. So, start with near and dear ones who are an absolute must and strike out the names of those people who don’t know that well. The best part is that it’s a given that only very few people actually do get an invite to a destination wedding, so nobody will hold a grudge against you (boss included).

You get to enjoy a holiday

You get to let your hair down and so do your guests! A destination wedding may last for just a few hours but since the most important people in the world have gathered together for your special day, why not use this opportunity to enjoy a holiday with them? Think of all the special memories you get to cherish for life and not to forget, the tons of fun that you will have too! Besides, this is a great way to bond with your family and vice versa for your groom.

You get to have a ‘different’ wedding

Say no to a lavish 5 star hotel and yes to having a themed destination wedding. Love the beach and always wanted to say I do by the sea? Head to a spot like Phuket which is famous for its white sand beaches and hospitality. Always wanted to marry in a castle setting? Scotland is the answer to your dream then. Think about how amazing it will be to share photographs with friends years later and to talk fondly about how wonderful your wedding day was.

Wedding planning isn’t as hard as you may think

Planning and executing a destination wedding may sound very hard but what if we told you that it is much easier than it sounds? Plenty of resorts and hotels have an in-house wedding planner who can take care of all the details for you. This way, you actually get to arrive at your destination two days before the wedding and finalise all the details before the ceremony. You do not need to go through the hassle of negotiating with vendors on your own.

Romance at a great price

Let’s be honest- the best part about destination weddings is the high romance quotient attached to it. After all, the setting and the locale itself is guaranteed to be a romantic one. But here’s a hidden fact that most couples don’t think about- destination weddings can be much cheaper in comparison to traditional weddings if you opt for the right package. Choose a resort that offers a great bulk deal which covers everything right from the guest’s rooms to the wedding venue to sightseeing. The kind of a tailor-made package brings in good business for the hotel and is lighter on your wallet too.
