Runaway Bride: A Case For Destination Weddings
In today’s society, there is so much room for creativity when it comes to planning a wedding. The possibilities are endless and so are the locations. Think outside the box, and the border, when it comes to planning your wedding. Here are four reasons why being a runaway bride may just be a good thing.
1. Not your last resort
If you choose to go destination, then your mother-in-law isn’t the only package deal you’ll be getting. Many resorts are bundling wedding packages so that every little detail of your special day from the marriage license to the lobster tail is covered with no surprise fees or extra stress. Many resorts have a list of preferred wedding coordinators and travel agents (like, yours truly) who will assist you in planning. The wedding planners will work to customize your wedding package and plan the details of your big day, whereas travel agent will handle all of the travel for your wedding and honeymoon. The package deal eliminates a lot of the stress, and time, that typically go into wedding planning.
2. S.S. Stress-Free
There are no bridezillas when you’re on the beach. Planning a wedding can bring out the best, or the worst, in people. A destination wedding makes wedding planning as stress-free as it can possibly be. The package you negotiate with an agent ensures every aspect of your wedding is covered and off your plate. Once a destination is selected, it’s smooth sailing from there. Your chosen wedding concierge will take care of, not only all of your travel and wedding details but many times they will take care of your guests as well.
3. Time in the Bank
You can have your wedding cake and eat it too. Think you can’t have it all? A destination wedding makes it so you can. Sometimes couples have to put off their wedding because their dream location is booked 3 years in advance, or because they are running low on time off at work. With destination weddings, you can often plan a wedding in a shorter time span. Special bonus: you can always extend your trip another week or shorten it depending on your vacation time to account for a bachelorette/bachelor party.
4. Paradise Found
When you’re saying your nuptials against a stunning backdrop, the feeling is priceless, and the photos will be incredible. If you’ve ever thought about having wedding photos you will constantly look at and admire, a destination wedding is the choice for you. With epic sunsets, incredible white sand beaches, and crystal blue waters, your big day will be even more unforgettable.
Your Final Destination
If you’re a bride-to-be, hopping on a plane to paradise might be the second-best proposal, ever (after you got proposed to, of course). A destination wedding takes away stress and gives back time. Wedding packages from resorts with preferred travel concierges offer time and stress savings. Now, do you take this destination to be your wedding location?
