What is a Destination Wedding?
A destination wedding is a ceremony that’s hosted outside of the couple’s hometown, which requires travel for those involved. These weddings are commonly associated with picturesque locations, normally found in the Caribbean, Europe or Mexico. In 2019, nearly one in four couples hosted a destination wedding, proving that they’re a great alternative to a traditional ceremony. Destination weddings allow couples to create personalized, memorable experiences for their guests, as opposed to a one-day celebration.
Why Choose a Destination Wedding?
Destination Weddings are an opportunity for a couple to hold a wedding in a romantic location without spending a fortune. The destination wedding also removes many of the stresses of planning a regular wedding, especially when working with a travel advisor that specializes in destination weddings. Every wedding detail can be arranged at a resort destination to suit your taste from afar. A destination wedding can be as cool and casual as you like. Want to be barefoot on the sand at a beach wedding? You got it! No heavy wedding gowns or tuxedo’s required, either. Make the ceremony as short as you like, then go swimming! Or start the music and champagne toasts and enjoy a party under the stars. After the wedding ceremony, the celebration can last for hours or even days, with meals and outings arranged for you and your guests. You can either spend your entire budget on one night’s festivities or stretch it for days worth of fantastic memories with your family and friends.
Who Pays for a Destination Wedding?
The etiquette of a destination wedding generally calls for invited guests to pay for their own airfare and accommodations. The bride and groom pick up the tab for the ceremony, reception, guest food and beverages, and additional festivities. They may also want to prepare goody bags filled with a location map, SPF, flip-flops, a bottle of wine, and a welcome letter.
