Destination weddings are a fantastic way to save money and have the wedding of your dreams! Destination weddings are less expensive than a traditional wedding. You will be able to combine your wedding and honeymoon for quite a bit less than what you would pay for a traditional wedding.
Consider this destination wedding scenario: in Riviera Maya or Cancun for $3,000 you can have a beautiful wedding ceremony, some florals, a photographer, videographer, bridal hair and makeup, live music, private cocktail reception with a 1 hour international bar, a sit down or buffet style dinner, and cake for 20 people depending on the resort you choose.
Use the following tips when planning your dream destination wedding:
Pick the Perfect Location
Estimate the number of guests who will attend the wedding, determine if children will attend, then decide on a destination. This will help narrow your property search.
Choose an Outdoors Option
Consider a wedding location with phenomenal outdoor options. Having an outdoor wedding gives you flexibility in the number of guests you can invite, and provides spectacular views. Choose a resort that offers multiple ceremony options…think gazebo, beach, garden.
Plan Your Destination Wedding Early
Set up a room block for your wedding party and guests as early as possible. Send a save the date. Then keep everyone informed. Wedding websites are the perfect way to keep all of your guests informed about your big day.
Make it an Experience
Choosing a destination wedding means you will have time for a mini-vacation and enjoy quality time with friends, family and each other before, during and after the wedding. A destination wedding means a 4 day or more wedding experience instead of a 4 – 6 hour wedding experience.
