Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is a destination wedding or destination celebration? A destination wedding is a wedding in an exotic locale far from home. Destinationweddings take place in a number of locations, including the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii,Europe, and many more. Other destination celebrations include honeymoons or vow renewals. A destination wedding or celebration can be as large or small as the couple desires. Some couples prefer to celebrate by themselves while others choose to invite as many guests as they would if they were celebrating at home.
Why plan a destination wedding? There are many reasons to choose a destination wedding. Destination weddings give couples and their families the chance to spend three to seven days together in anexotic locale rather than just four or five hours in a banquet room. They offer the couple’s families the chance to truly bond and make memories that will last a lifetime. Additionally, destination weddings are unique and enjoyable for the couple and their guests.
Is a destination wedding right for us and our guests? If you're thinking of planning a destination wedding, it's likely important to you that your closest friends and family members will be able to attend. Before you commit to having a destination wedding, run the idea by family and friends. If there are relatives who you know you want present on your special day but are unable to attend, you might prefer to have an intimate destination wedding and a reception after your wedding abroad so all your loved ones can be a part of the celebration.Additionally, choosing the right destination may also affect who can attend. A wedding in Belize where you plan to enjoy zip-lining, water rafting and other activities may not be the best choice for your older guests. Make sure to consider your closest family and friends when selecting a wedding destination.
