When you’re trying to plan your wedding, the thought of a destination wedding will keep coming up. It sounds exotic and exciting, but you’re not that sure if it’s a good idea. Yes, there are many downsides to this, such as some of your guests saying they can’t afford it. However, there are many benefits. Here are some of the reasons to opt for that destination wedding.
You Can Limit the Guest Numbers
If you really want to limit the guest numbers, the destination wedding is the perfect reason. You can explain that there are only so many you can afford to fly there or that you know some people won’t be able to afford it. Even if you’re not flying everyone there, you can control the amount of food you have to have on the day.
More Time With Your Guests
By limiting the numbers, you get to spend more time with each of your guests. It’s really easy to get lost in the crowd at larger home weddings.
You don’t get the chance to speak to everybody there and you end up regretting that you couldn’t get on the dance floor with your pals. There will be very few regrets with small numbers at a more exotic location.
It Can Double as Your Honeymoon
You can remain in the same spot for your honeymoon, cutting down some of the costs. It could also mean that your guests are included in your honeymoon plans, if you really want to do that.
For example, you could book a cruise for everyone so you get married and have a week-long holiday to celebrate it in style.
You Get Some Fun Photos
Just imagine the photos when all your shots are on a beautiful sandy beach in the sunny weather. You’ll be able to look back on your day and smile at each of the memories. There are so many picturesque options when it comes to destination weddings, even if you’re not a beach lover. Think about the shots on the mountaintop or those cruise photos.
Much Easier to Plan
Did you know that destination weddings are often much easier to plan? The hardest part is usually making sure you have all the right paperwork together.
When it comes to planning, the venues will usually do it all. They’ll put together the food, the drinks and even the entertainment for your big day. You can also co-ordinate with them to get certain decorations without the hassle of sourcing them yourself.
Get the Day of Your Dreams
A destination wedding is often a dream for many people. By saying yes, you’ll get that day and much more. You can have the people who mean the most to you there to witness it and have the photos to remind you of just how great it was.
When you look back, there really won’t be any regrets or wishes that you could have done something just slightly different.
