Reasons to Consider a Destination Wedding

Destination weddings are probably the most memorable events of all. It allows you to spend quality time with your family friends over a longer period of time.  My top reasons to consider a destination wedding:

The location should be a true representation of your personality. Most couples will pick a location based upon their vacations or the location where they were engaged or even met.

 The most important people will attend, thus reducing your ever growing guest list by more than half. This upside not only helps with the overall budget but it gives the couples more quality time with close family and friends.

You are spending the money for a longer period of party time. Instead of spending the money
on a 5 hour event - you will get 3 days of fun with family and friends.

 The destination wedding is a vacation for the guests, you have now taken them away from their day to day routine and asked them to spend 3 unforgettable days away with you. If you give them 9 - 12 month lead time they will be able to schedule their vacation time around your wedding weekend.

 Embrace the destination, if you dreamed of a castle in Ireland, you will experience the beauty of the region around you.  Enjoy the culture, experience the food and have fun.

 Enjoy the experiences offered at the destination. While in Italy host some cooking glasses or wine tasting tours.  In the Cayman island, swim with the stingray, in Hawaii enjoy snorkeling.

Incorporate the culture into the plans and activities.  In Italy we love to hire a mandolin and accordian players to serenade our guests, in Mexico you must go Mariachi, in Hawaai, how can you miss out on a hula dance
