A destination wedding combines an exciting locale with an intimate ceremony
There is no right or wrong way to design your wedding ceremony. You might prefer a traditional wedding - complete with church ceremony, rice in the hair, reception hall celebration, and a tiered wedding cake on a pedestal. For many of us, this defines the typical wedding. Some prefer a simple wedding, maybe a quick trip to the courthouse for an intimate get-together with family and friends. Others choose to take the plunge in Sin City - allowing the glowing backdrop of Las Vegas to illuminate the festivities. And finally, some couples choose the exciting option of planning a destination wedding.
Couples Resorts has released an exciting new infographic that touches on the many facets of planning a destination wedding. A destination wedding usually does not require as much planning as any wedding in your home town and yet the rewards of choosing a location that is far from home may sway many to give up the "wedding hall down the street" and commit to the idea of a far away destination.
Destination weddings can be fun, exciting, and memorable and with the help of our wedding planners who are a phone call, the planning is much simpler. First, you'll want to decide on the location for your big day. Most destination weddings are planned around a location that speaks to the couple, or has some specific significance to the bride and groom or their families. Jamaica, Hawaii and Italy are three of the most popular destination wedding spots.
Pick a location that you'll want to remember for a lifetime. Many couples choose a tropical or temperate location, but it is most important to select a locale that mirrors your personality and likes. We also recommend researching the seasons in order to be best prepared to dress for the weather. You'll want to give plenty of advanced notice to those you are planning on inviting, as international travel arrangements can be more complicated to secure. Our expert reservationists are on hand to take care of every detail, just remember 1-800-COUPLES.
A destination wedding can be an exciting, memorable and intimate affair that you and your guests will remember for years to come. And remember - once vows are exchanged and rings are placed on fingers, you're already at your honeymoon destination!
