Destination weddings have become tremendously popular in recent years. It is now estimated that nearly 20% of weddings are destination weddings.
With a destination wedding, the bride and groom (along with their wedding party and guests) travel to a vacation destination for the wedding ceremony and reception.
Obviously travel expenses are a concern, therefore most destination weddings are relatively small. Though you might think planning a wedding from a distance is difficult, many resorts provide packages which make planning your destination wedding relatively easy.
You can use the services of an on-site wedding coordinator. This person can help plan every aspect for your wedding, including the basics of the flowers, cake, catering and decorations, as well as more important details such as sightseeing activities for your guests.
Initially, it might appear that a destination wedding is quite expensive. However, holding a smaller destination wedding is usually cheaper for the bride and groom than planning a large wedding locally. The bride and groom (or their parents) are expected to pay for the normal wedding expenses, but guests are usually responsible for their own travel expenses.
Try to plan your destination wedding during a non-peak travel season to keep the airfare and hotel costs to a minimum. One factor to consider when planning a destination wedding is that all your family and friends may not be able to come. Some won't be able to afford it, while others won't be able to take off work.
At Truly Wedding Favors, you can find a terrific array of wedding favors that are perfectly suited for destination weddings. The extensive assortment of beach themed wedding favors are perfect for an exotic island wedding. They also offer themed wedding favors, such as Las Vegas weddings favors, wine wedding favors and fairy tale wedding favors that may be suitable choices for your destination wedding depending on the locale.
All told, a destination wedding can be a wonderful choice that allows you to combine your wedding and honeymoon in one special destination.
