If you are planning your wedding, the chances are that you will be going to a fair few other weddings this year. Weddings seem to come in bunches, and after a few, they can start to blend together. Having a destination wedding will set your special day apart from all of the others.
3. Honestly, it’s easier
If you are planning to have your wedding at a resort they know what they are doing. They plan hundreds of weddings a year and have it down to an exact science. You will be able to choose from many different options so that you get your dream wedding. The best part is that you will only have to deal with one vendor. The resort.

Having just one point of contact for everything streamlines the process and allows you to focus on other aspects of the big day.
4. It’s cheaper
It really is. It is by no means cheap. This is a wedding after all. If you cost out both a wedding at home or overseas, then you will quickly notice that you can save tens of thousands and have much more fun. Destination weddings have the advantage that they are already in a beautiful setting. The sun, the sea and the sand all make for the perfect backdrop to your wedding day.

If you are going to have a destination wedding at an all-inclusive resort you will probably be staying there for a few days at least. This can be a great time to relax with your family. This can be made extra special if you don’t get to see each other too often. With careers and lives becoming more international, it is not unheard of for a destination wedding to bring to families together for the first time. Spending a week together can be a great way to really get to know both sides of the family and forge long-lasting memories. This can be a great way to catch up with family that your busy lived have stopped you from seeing to frequently.
6. You’ll have fewer guests
It’s a great excuse to limit the guest list. By their very nature, a destination wedding is usually smaller and more intimate. This means that you can trim down the guest list to only a few select people without offending anyone. You can always have a post-wedding party to celebrate with those who couldn’t make the trip.
