When some couple’s hear the word “wedding”, they cringe at the thought of a church wedding and a plated chicken dinner in a hotel ballroom. Their hearts are pulled in another direction – to adventure! These adventurous couples know these 7 things to be true about weddings:
It’s quality, not quantity.
With a destination wedding you’ll get to spend more time with the people that mean the most to you for longer than just your wedding day, giving you a more quality experience.
The photos will be amazing.
One of the biggest benefits of a destination is capturing the beauty that naturally exists around you. Whether beach or mountain, Paris or Charleston – destination couples use these backdrops to elevate their photos.
Traditions are actually cultural experiences.
When traveling to a destination to celebrate their wedding, adventurous couples embrace the locality, cultural traditions and food.
Everything is less stressful when you’re on vacation.
Feeling stressed out? Take a look at that view! Grab a drink! While destination weddings have their own challenges, it’s so much easier to relax when you’re on vacation.
Your friends & family want to go on vacation too.
Um. Duh. Guests are happy to have an opportunity to travel and take vacation and even possibly visit someplace they may not have otherwise.
Golden hour and happy hour are the best times of day.
Signature drinks paired with perfect lighting and dreamy sunsets? This is what destination wedding dreams are made of!
The world is your oyster.
Your hometown or current city of residence isn’t the only option for your wedding location. The whole world is at your fingertips via planes, trains and automobiles.
