If you are thinking of having a destination wedding rather than a traditional wedding you might be surprised at how many benefits there are to this type of wedding. These weddings can be simple but very beautiful and elegant but they will also give you and your significant other an experience that you will never forget. Read on below to learn about some of the most popular benefits that come with a destination wedding.
Spend One On One Time With Your Guests
When you have a traditional wedding you will surely have a much larger wedding than a destination wedding would be. Often times there are several hundred people that will be there to celebrate your big day. Unfortunately, you will not be able to spend time with each and every one of these guests. A destination wedding will allow for the wedding to be much smaller and that means it will be much more intimate as well. This will leave you plenty of time for someone on one time with each of your guests. A small wedding will allow everyone who is attending to be involved in the big day and it will be all about you.
The Cost Will Probably Be Less Expensive
Another benefit to having a destination wedding is that the cost will probably be much more inexpensive than a traditional wedding. The guest list of a wedding that you have at home is going to be very large and with every person that you invite the price tag of your wedding increases. If you have a destination wedding you may invite many people but only a handful of people will be able to travel to your wedding. Therefore when your guest list is dwindling so will your price tag. Most couples will limit their invitation list for a destination wedding to family and close friends only. This will allow you to save a lot of money.
You, Will, Have An Early Honeymoon
A very good benefit of a destination wedding is that your honeymoon begins as soon as the wedding is over. It does not matter if your guests are still there or not. Most destination weddings take place on an island or someplace warm and cozy. Therefore there is no need for you to plan and pay for a separate honeymoon location. As soon as the “I dos” take place you can be assured that your rest and relaxation can start.
Beautiful Photo Opportunities
Every wedding will have pictures taken but will the scenery in the pictures be as good as it would be with a destination wedding, probably not. If you have a destination wedding it will allow you to have the most beautiful scenery as the backdrop for your wedding pictures. Most of this scenery will not be able to be obtained when you are at home.
Planning Your Wedding
Benefits for destination weddings come in all shapes and sizes and one of the bigger benefits is that of planning. When you are planning your destination wedding you will find that you will save much time for planning a wedding of this type. In fact, you might be lucky enough to find a resort that will plan your entire wedding for you and you will not have anything to worry about. This is a definite plus and will reduce the amount of stress that you will be under.
As you can see there are many different benefits to having a destination wedding. There are also many more that you might discover while you are planning your wedding or even during or after the wedding is over. This is the time that you should enjoy yourself and not worry about anything.
