Have You Considered A Destination Wedding?
With all of the time, costs, limitations and emotions, planning a traditional wedding can become a stressful and expensive event. A Destination Wedding, on the other hand, can be incredibly affordable because your Travel Agent will shop around and negotiate on your behalf to get the best group rate possible. Ultimately, your wedding group will be staying at a lovely, exclusive resort and pay less than if they had booked it themselves!
Because you’ll be booking as a wedding group, you can ensure that everyone stays at the same resort, pays the same discounted group rate and travels on the same airlines. This makes it much easier for the nervous first-time or infrequent travellers on your guest list to relax and enjoy their vacation.
Destination Weddings are the perfect way for both of your families to get to know each other. A stress-free environment in an idyllic setting is a perfect place to form new acquaintances and build long-lasting bonds and unforgettable memories.
Destination Weddings Reconnect Family & Friends
Many families see a Destination Wedding as an opportunity to reconnect with family members living abroad rather than travelling all the way to Canada for a few days for your wedding. Your family can spend their vacation in a beautiful location and reunite with relatives who they may not have seen in years!
With a Destination Wedding, you don’t have to limit your guest list. In fact, the more people who go to your Destination Wedding often means a LESS expensive trip for everyone, as larger groups often mean lower rates. So go head.. invite everybody!
Destination Weddings extend your special day into an entire week! Instead of rushing through the day on a tight schedule, you get to actually spend quality time with the people who matter in your life. You can schedule a Welcome Reception, host special meals or excursions with your guests, plan games and activities, or even enjoy a bachelor/bachelorette evening on the night before the wedding. Your entire group will dine, play, laugh and relax together.. in a way they never could during a conventional, single-day local wedding.
Add a Honeymoon
And since you’re already out there, it’s very easy and affordable to add a Honeymoon to your wedding. You can simply extend you and your fiancées stay after your guests have returned home. Your family and friends, having experienced your wedding ceremony, will leave you together as a married couple. By that time, you’ve explored the property and you already have your favourite spots. If you’d rather go somewhere else for your Honeymoon, you’re already close to an endless number of options.
Tropical destinations still reign supreme for weddings away.
