30 Really Good Reasons To Have A Destination Wedding

1. Destination weddings are more affordable than traditional weddings. That’s right. You can save up to 40% on the cost of a wedding if you do it abroad.

2. Your wedding pictures will be way better than everyone else’s. Your backdrop will be a beautiful beach, sunset, spectacular mountains, a hillside view of the city or anything you want.

3. Destination Weddings are way more fun than local traditional weddings. Being on vacation in an exotic foreign location just sounds way more entertaining than the local church.

4. You get a honeymoon, a wedding and a holiday out of the experience. How about tripling up on a vacation, wedding and then spending extra days after your guest are gone to enjoy some honeymoon days with your partner.

5. Planning a destination wedding is way less stressful. You do not need to stress about the logistics of or organising travel plans for your wedding party. There travel agents that will do that for you. Your hotel will also have a wedding planner on site to take care of the rest.

6. Being on a beach is way better than sitting in a banquet hall. If I had to pick, I would choose the beach. Just saying.

7. Your wedding guest will be way more excited about attending your wedding. Everyone gets excited about going on vacation. The fact that you are getting married will make the trip even more special.

8. It’s a great opportunity to sneak in a bucket list trip. When you plan your destination wedding, you will most likely be picking a destination that is very special to both you and your partner. One that is probably on your bucket-list.

9. You can go completely rogue on your destination wedding. Get drunk and crazy, trash your wedding dress, and have all the fun you want in the world. No one will judge you and no one cares.

10. Your wedding lasts an entire week instead of a single day. How about a full week of wedding celebrations? Sounds way more fun than having everything over in a single day and life is back to normal.

11. You get to leave all the stress at home and enjoy your wedding. When you are in a foreign location, you leave all the stress of your regular life behind so you can focus on having fun and enjoying the special moment with your partner and loved ones.

12. You can get married on any day of the week you want. Your wedding day does not have to be on a Saturday because everyone is working on weekdays, or on a Friday because that is the cheaper than the weekend. When you have a destination wedding, any day of the week is yours.

13. Your wedding will be unique. It is no fun when your wedding pictures look almost the same as every other married person in the office. Same location, same photographer and the same décor from the same wedding planner. You get to be different.

14. You get to say your vows anywhere you want. On the cliffs, on the beach, in a banquet room, take your pick of locations to have your wedding ceremony.

15. You get to ignore tired local traditions and create your own. We respect our local traditions, but on your special day, you kind of want to create your unique memories. When you have a destination wedding, you get to make up your own.

16. You get to save money on expensive décor. When your setting is made up of lovely green mountains, beaches, lush gardens, the sunshine and the ocean, that’s all the décor you need.

17.Having a destination wedding is a great way to narrow your guest list. There are no more rooms left at the resort, sorry cousin Jake. Spend your special moment with the people that mean the most to you.

18. The bride and groom can get their room for free. Most wedding resorts offer incentives for couples to bring their wedding ceremony to their hotel. If you have a certain number of guests confirmed at the hotel for your wedding, you may get your room for free along with additional perks.

19. You will get treated like royalty by the resort staff. Hotel staff are at your service fulfilling your every demand right around the clock. They make you feel special and important.

20. Resorts that specialise in destination weddings can have your wedding ceremony in your theme or religion of choice. You do not need to worry about the minister, the traditions or the décor your wedding ceremony is conducted in. These resorts will meet your demands to ensure they get the business.

21. You can save even more money on your destination wedding by having your wedding in the low season. If you are flexible about your wedding date, then you can get a sweeter deal by having your wedding when the hotels are not as full and least expensive.

22. You get to spend more time with your loved ones during your this special time. You have a full 4 – 7 days, even more, to bond with your partner and your guests without any distractions.

23. You have a beautiful place to come back to for your milestone anniversaries. The location you choose now becomes a special place in your relationship that you can return to for anniversaries or special vacations.

24. Your guests will never forget your wedding date because it was also a vacation for them. Among the dates people never forget, are there vacation dates. Your wedding day will now get added to that list of select dates.

25. When you get married on the beach, you do not need to spend money on expensive wedding shoes. It’s really hard to walk in stilettos on the beach, so why bother. Save the money and go bare-footed.

26. When you have a destination wedding, you do not need a fancy expensive wedding dress. A wedding dress is not a necessity on a destination wedding. You can even say your vows in a bathing suit if that is what you want to do.

27. The parties can go all night long. There are no time limits to using the resort facilities and your guest don’t have to worry about driving home or waking up at any time the next day if at all.

28. You can create the fairytale wedding in paradise that you have always dreamed of. Pick the location that you call paradise. Choose the theme, the setting and create that perfect wedding that sounds like a fairytale to everyone else.

29. People will talk about your wedding for years. Your wedding will be a lot of fun for you and your wedding party. They will share the stories with others, and it will be the topic at social gatherings for years to come.

30. You will be following in the footsteps of the rich and famous. Exotic weddings were first a thing that only celebrities and rich people do. Now you have the opportunity to enjoy the same time of experience without being a multi-millionaire.
