Why You Should Consider a Destination Wedding - A One-of-a-Kind Celebration

From the ease of organizing and convenience to a tailor-made celebration, destination weddings are all the rage now, and for good reason.


An Intimate Wedding: Smaller Guest Lists

One of the best reasons to have a destination wedding, especially for those with large extended families and friend circles, is the excellent excuse to cut down on the guest list. Some weddings, especially in South Asia, involve large numbers, which result in extraneous costs. Therefore, those who wish to cut down on the guest list and opt for an intimate wedding should consider a destination wedding.


Location: The World is Your Oyster

When it comes to selecting the location, couples need not be constrained by the few luxury wedding venues which are found in their city. A destination wedding means that couples can choose to get married in any of the stunning locations on earth be it in the Maldives or Hawaii! Those who wish to have a sophisticated wedding can also choose from a number of hotels. However, couples may feel more inclined towards selecting a hotel that belongs to a chain such as Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas because of the reputation and reliability of such chains.


Stunning Photographs and Beautiful Memories

Having a destination wedding means that you can select a beautiful location of your choice. You also don't need to confine yourself to the run of the mill photographs that every other couple in the city is taking. It also means that one can cut down on the d├ęcor because having, for instance, a beach wedding, means that there is already a considerable degree of natural beauty involved.


Ease and Convenience

Unlike a wedding in your hometown or city, a destination wedding tends to be easier to plan. This is because most hotels and wedding venues offer packages, which include the food and beverages as well as the cost of the photographer. These packages also often come with an in-house coordinator, which means that you do not need to hire a separate wedding planner or wedding consultant. This not only reduces cost but also enhances convenience and allows you to actually enjoy the ceremony and the reception.


It's a Great Excuse for a Vacation

A destination wedding is like combining a celebration and a vacation into one. Not only will your guests be able to get in some holiday time, they may also be able to get a good deal at the hotel you are having the ceremony at. Most hotels offer discounted rates when large parties book rooms en masse. The same applies to obtaining airline tickets.


Get a Kick Start on the Honeymoon

Finally, one of the very best reasons to consider having a destination wedding is that you are able to start your honeymoon as soon as your celebration ends. Couples have the advantage of staying at the hotel for a little while longer or begin exploring the surrounding areas without having to pack and fly to another country for their honeymoon.
