Destination weddings are intimate affairs shared with only your closest family and friends. It's a chance for you to enjoy the company of those closest to you for not only a few hours, but more like 2-3 days, making it a true celebration.
The planning process for a destination wedding is very different from a traditional wedding. Most likely you won't be able to visit the actual wedding location, taste the food, have a cake tasting, or get to know the minister who will marry you before you arrive. Not to worry though. This is why we stress the importance of consulting with a Destination Wedding Specialist, who will help with all of these details.
Unlike traditional weddings, you shouldn't expect to have an elaborate dress with an enormous train and a huge wedding cake. Instead, the dress should fit the destination. For example, most beach wedding brides will have light, flowy dresses that are less formal, and easier to walk in the sand with. The cake will most likely be provided by the resort.
Destination weddings can be a fun and memorable experience for you and your guests, and by keeping your guest list smaller than you would back home, a destination wedding can also save you money.
