Destinations made for lovers, where sea and sunsets set the stage for glorious weddings and where resorts are designed for romance. For very special weddings a travel agent can arrange award-winning beachfront resorts, unique ceremony settings, value-added packages, free wedding-planning services and ultra-chic honeymoon suites.
Begin your life together with your toes in the sand, under a charming gazebo, in a beachfront chapel, or on a rooftop deck with sea views. Then let a Caribbean band or Mexican harpist or Hawaiian singer serenade your reception.
No wonder destination weddings are becoming more and more popular!
Why Have A Destination Wedding?
1. A Unique and Memorable Experience
If you dream of saying ‘I do’ against an exotic backdrop - such as a tropical beach, a lush vineyard, a windswept mountaintop, or a romantic castle a destination wedding may be for you. The memories you create in your special location will last a lifetime. And you can revisit that distinctive place that means so much to the two of you to celebrate your special anniversaries again and again.
2. Save Expenses
A destination wedding can save you money. Many resorts offer complimentary basic wedding packages so you pay only for your honeymoon. You could also modify that package to design the wedding that’s perfect for you. By not following the model of an expensive, traditional wedding you can manage costs to fit your budget.
A travel agent can help you with all the details, from planning your wedding to helping with local requirements such as blood tests or establishing brief residency. They can explain all the options of caterers, florists, photographers and other suppliers so there is less for you to do in this busy time.
4. Make Your Wedding Feel Like a Vacation.
Many couples combine their wedding ceremony with activities before and after the exchange of vows for themselves and their guests. This turns the whole event into a vacation for everyone involved. It can be a long weekend or even a full week of fun for you and your guests and a perfect time for bonding with family and friends.
5. Free Wedding Planning Help
A travel agent is your best resource to help you select your wedding location and guide you through all the decisions that must be made. An agent who specializes in destination weddings and honeymoons will have a wealth of information, advice and support to help you every step of the way. Because their fees are paid for by the vendors, their help and expertise is free to you! Sometimes they can even get exclusive offers and amenities not ordinarily available to people who book on their own.
When your wedding day arrives, the local resort staff will take care of all the arrangements and ensure that everything goes smoothly, letting you relax and enjoy your special day with no concerns for the details of the procedures.
