Destination weddings are quickly becoming a hit amongst couples, especially the ever on the move millennials. When you take a look at the average cost of a Western wedding, you will understand why it makes perfect sense to embrace this option. In the UK, for example, the average cost of a traditional wedding is £25,000. You can get a magnificent destination wedding for around 30% of that amount in choice destinations abroad! Here are more reasons why you should jet off when it is time to tie the knot.
If you’ve never been one to enjoy overblown crowds, this is your chance to enjoy a fun, small and intimate wedding. Your guest list will be small due to the travel involved and only your very closest friends and families will really bother with the trip. Nice way to shed off the crowd “fat” right? You don’t have to cater for your neighbour 5 blocks away or your cousin you last spoke to in the Ice Age!
The typical destination wedding holds in magnificent locations like the beach front, a garden or a vineyard. Why would you need to shell out on decoration in such a location? In fact, many destination wedding packages are all-inclusive so you do not need to pay the bridal floral group separately! Your wedding organisers will have decoration sorted for you. Even when the decoration is minimalist, it comes out looking stunning in pictures when you factor in the natural elements.
After you have spent thousands for your wedding at home, you will still have to shell out sizable sums on a honeymoon. A destination wedding takes care of this. After the wedding, you can retire to a lush property with your partner, to all the glitz and glamour that naturally trails honeymoon. Most destination wedding locations, from South Africa to the Caribbeans to Turkey, all have magnificent places for your honeymoon. If you are headed to Turkey, consider some of the exquisite holiday homes available on Spot Blue! Imagine combining your wedding with a Safari honeymoon. How magnificent is that?
Few would argue if you call your wedding day one of the most important days of your life. So why not go out of your way to make it as evergreen as possible? A traditional wedding back home will retain all the boring details that you have become accustomed to over the years. Not even grabbing hipster wedding routines on Instagram can change that! A destination wedding, on the other hand, gives you a chance to really shake things up. There are lots of traditions you can borrow while at the location to make your day every inch different and one you will never forget.
Vain, but it’s the times! Most people will share their wedding pictures with friends and family and even online. A picture perfect destination wedding makes it easy for you to leave people in awe and in admiration of your special experience.
