Destination weddings are surging in popularity with today’s wedding couples. Is it the allure of the tropical islands? The excitement of a Las Vegas wedding? Here are the top ten reasons couples choose a destination wedding over a traditional wedding.
Some couples just aren’t into wedding planning. Destination weddings can be planned easily by booking the destination resort and working with the on site wedding coordinator. Your coordinator will arrange everything from your lodging, transportation, marriage licence, ceremony, flowers, music, reception and guest activities.
Second Marriages, couples want a meaningful wedding, but not all the hoopla that surrounded the first wedding. They also want to do things differently from the first wedding. They want the ceremony, but on a smaller scale.
Smaller intimate wedding. Not every couple wants a big wedding shindig. They want to have an intimate wedding surrounded by people who mean the most to them. Some people are really nervous about being the center of attention in a large crowd and this is the answer.
Blended families, many couples have children from previous relationships and it gets sticky in social situations. You have to deal with the former in laws and its not going to work on your wedding day. A destination wedding takes away the akwardness from the situation. A destination wedding is also a great place to bring the children being blended into the new family by having a family wedding ceremony.
The economy is a huge factor in the number of destination weddings. Big weddings are expensive, destination weddings are less expensive and just as meaningful and lovely.
Its always been a dream to elope. Some couples have always wanted to elope and come home married. Whether they head to Las Vegas or the Caribbean, its the romance of eloping and honeymooning at an exotic location.
Family problems can hit any family at any time. Disagreements over the wedding planning lead many couples to plan a destination wedding. Divorced parents, alcoholic relatives, family bickering, religious differences and head butting with parents over the wedding are all valid reasons couples choose to have a destination wedding.
Differences in religion or cultures. Some families give the wedding couple a lot of grief over the wedding plans. Religious differences and cultural differences are sometimes too difficult to overcome. One family insists on one thing, the other family vetoes the idea. If the couple has different religious beliefs or their beliefs differ from the way they are raised, it also causes problems.
The allure of the destination wedding location, whether its a Caribbean island, mountain resort or the glamor of Las Vegas. Some couples get engaged on vacation and want to marry at the site of the proposal. Some people are beach people and have always dreamed of marrying on the beach.
You are automatically on your honeymoon! Say I Do, celebrate at your reception and you are on your honeymoon! There is no packing and traveling after the wedding. You’ve done your traveling, you’ve done your packing, its time to relax and enjoy.
