The question has been asked and you said YES! It’s time to plan your wedding. You’ve dreamt about this day since you were a little girl, a day full of romance and love. However, in reality planning a wedding can be full of family drama and stress. Here are five reasons why destination weddings are the way to go! 

Reason #1: Budget Friendly

The average American wedding costs over $27,000 and that’s not including the honeymoon. Many resorts offer budget friendly wedding packages that include accommodations after the wedding. This allows couples to have the wedding and honeymoon of their dreams without breaking the bank. 

Reason #2: It’s Uncomplicated 

When planning a wedding at home every little detail is up to you. The decisions you make for that one day can seem endless. Many resorts that specialize in weddings offer a variety of packages that keep it simple while allowing you to customize to give it your personal touch. Your biggest decision will be wedding location

Reason #3: Limited Guest List

We mentioned before that planning a wedding can bring family drama and stress. With a destination wedding you can limit or completely remove that possibility. Longer travel and bigger expense means greater commitment that most on your list will not be able to make. Even if some surprise you it’s a vacation for them as well. They will probably spend more time enjoying the area then in your affairs. 

Reason #4: More Time

Most couples spend months planning for the big day and in four to six hours it’s over. A destination wedding gives you several days to spend with your family and friends. Once you arrive the decision making is practically over and you can just sit back and enjoy quality time together in a vacation spot that reflects you and your future mate. 

Reason #5: It’s All About You 

From the day you arrive till the day you return this is your wedding days! You’re enjoying a place that you chose, with people that you picked and a variety of activities that you planned. Yes, with a destination wedding you can truly say these days are all about you!
