Make a Statement With a Destination Wedding
The newest trend in weddings is to get out of town literally. Destination weddings are the latest rage because the couple gets to exchange their vows in private, with family or just a select few friends.
A destination wedding can occur anywhere from an exotic paradise to a remote location. You might pick a tropical island like Hawaii or somewhere in Bali. Perhaps the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest or the deserts of Australia call to you. This is your dream, so select exactly what you want.
Realize that the farther that you go, the fewer people will want to or be able to come with you. And this might be exactly what you're looking for–just a simple wedding with you and your soon-to-be spouse.
In either case, you will still want to send out announcements of your wedding date so that your friends and family will know. In many cases, you can get married at the destination wedding, and then have a reception when you get home.
Why are Destination Weddings Popular?
Destination weddings replace a lot of the planning done for a traditional wedding. There aren't the crowds of people to meet and greet. There aren't the floral and cake and decoration meetings. In most cases, the resort wedding planning team will do everything for you so you get to relax and just enjoy your day.
And the pictures that you will have on your wedding day. How many others can say that they were married in front of a waterfall or the setting sun on the ocean? Its the scenery that brings people to destination weddings because it's unlike anything that they could have created in their hometown.
