Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular with couples who are eager to skip the fuss of a traditional wedding and jump right into the fun. A destination wedding can involve just the two of you; a select handful of family and friends; or enough guests to constitute a bona fide week-long family (or college) reunion. Destination weddings give the couple the opportunity to choose a site that has a special meaning for them, such as a favorite country, locale, or even terrain–a mountain view or beach might just “fit” their personalities–or they might simply choose a beautiful location they’d like to spend time in with their close friends and families. A destination wedding is typically an event where the bride and groom plan an away from home wedding, inviting their closest family members and friends to an ideal location and make the event a semi-vacation. Destination weddings are typically smaller than traditional weddings, with the guest count ranging from just the bride and groom plus honor attendants to around 50 or 60 guests. It all depends on the location.
Destination weddings are Simple
Destination weddings can be so much simpler to plan and execute than close to home weddings. This may seem counter intuitive, since it can be very difficult to orchestrate an event long distance, but it actually is easier to plan a wedding at a distant destination.
Destination weddings are Affordable
Destination weddings are typically less expensive than local weddings. The couple pays for their resort stay and the wedding package or their unique design, and the guests pay their own way to the location and their accommodations. Couples can have a large or small wedding and control their spending. They also may get discounts and deals from the resorts when they extend their stay, book a certain number of rooms and arrange their honeymoon at the same venue.
Wedding planning is stressful and often family and friends can create drama and confusion for the couple. Having a destination wedding eliminates a great deal of stress since the wedding is far away and only a limited number of people can attend. Also, enjoying the convenience of a wedding package that includes everything the couple needs allows them to enjoy the day and relax. They still have a few details to take care of, but overall, the people at the resort do all the heavy lifting when it comes to planning the wedding.
Attire for Destination Wedding
Destination weddings are often outside the box, so what you wear at one can be too. These types of weddings can be as informal or formal as the couple desires, and the traditional white wedding may even be out of place depending on your location. Before deciding on the theme, research the area where you will have your ceremony performed to get an idea of what couples typically wear there, and be practical. A long train will be out of place on the beach, but it will be perfectly acceptable in a resort’s reception room.
If you’re going the traditional route, you will need formal and evening attire along with your wedding attire. You will also want to bring some casual clothes and beach attire if you plan to do any touring or want to relax. For a casual beach wedding, you may opt for a dressed-down look with casual dresses and khakis. Make sure the guests know what the expected attire is beforehand though so that you don’t have a guest in coattails while everyone else is in polos.
