8 reasons why a destination wedding may be right for you

It may not be an option for everyone, but it’s worth considering


1. The wedding planner will take care of everything

It’s pretty difficult to have a destination wedding without enlisting a local wedding planner, but once you find one you can trust, you can leave almost everything in their hands. Look for feedback and reviews online to find one that’s reliable and right for you – one who specialises in destination weddings would be ideal.

2. You’ll get the complete wedding package

Destination weddings have become so popular that you can find tailored wedding packages almost anywhere you can think of, which will significantly cut down on your stress levels, save you the hassle of worrying about different vendors, and provide you with a truly picture-perfect, blissful experience.

3. Ideal for smaller weddings

Not everyone will be able or even want to make it to a destination wedding, so you can narrow down your guest list significantly, to your very nearest and dearest who really want to be there and don’t mind catching a flight to do so. Ask about group discounts to make it more affordable for your guests.

4. It can really be all about the couple

If you’re getting married at home, you may feel pressured to do things a certain way, just because your family expects you to. There’s none of that during a destination wedding – it’s really all about what the couple getting married want.

5. Perfect for second marriages

If you’re preparing to get married for the second time, some moments of wedding planning can feel like déjà vu, and that can be an unpleasant feeling, especially if things ended badly the first time around. With a destination wedding, you’re wiping the slate clean and starting a new chapter in your life on a totally different note.

6. You’ll get some stunning wedding photos

We know every wedding is beautiful, but there are some backdrops for wedding photos which you’ve just seen so many times that it’s exhausting. With a destination wedding, you can get some really memorable and gorgeous photos, tinged with local flavour.

7. It can be combined with a honeymoon

You’ll already be abroad so you can kickstart your honeymoon in grand style. Getting married in Italy? It can be the start of a Europe-wide road trip! Heading to the Maldives? Well, there’s a reason it’s one of the most popular honeymoon destinations around.
