The Insider’s Guide to Destination Weddings

Nov 2, 2017

Ladies!  We have seen several well-known people go to different sides of the world just to celebrate a destination wedding.  Have you ever thought of having your wedding in Game of Thrones Dorne or a Kings Landing Wedding in Croatia?  I’m sure you will go head over heels with this idea.  Inspired by most of the celebrities’ weddings, millennials are now having their big day in destination weddings because of many factors; the guests will surely have a breath-taking view, the newlyweds will have a picture-perfect moment when they say “I Do”, and it will make them feel how solemn and romantic the place is.  Booking tickets and hotels are so easy nowadays, in just one clicks it is already booked!  That is why many couples can now spend their wedding in a place they love and meaningful to them.  I won’t even say no to that.  But there are some pro’s and con’s you need to know in destination weddings.

Budget

Pros:

First tip here is do not be shy.  Some guests are pledging for catering and the tickets are for the in-laws.   My grandpa paid for the plane tickets of my parents wedding!  Some guests are pledging for catering and the tickets are for the in-laws.  Try to communicate with them, because little did you know that they are willing to pay it for you.  Book the hotels and tickets ahead of time so you will pay less than their regular fee or pick season fee.

Cons:

Let us all admit that this kind of wedding will make your wallets cry.  You will need a great amount of money for a destination wedding.   Especially if it will be part of Europe and USA.   Make sure that you will have enough funds for you to be able to spend it worry-free and just the way you want it to.  Be also aware of the other expenses.

Aesthetics

Pros:

Many of us are now engaged in mountain climbing, remember that last mountain you climb or the last time you went camping by the beach?  Who wouldn’t love a private and lush green scenery?  It is pleasing to the eyes and calms you in a different way.  This will make your Instagram out of ordinary.  You and your guests can enjoy Mother Nature and appreciate its beauty at the same time.

Cons:

As much as we love to climb mountain, we are always reminded to to leave no tracks, it means to take your trash with you.  Make sure to remind everyone to throw away the trash in the proper trash bins and keep the place clean as possible. You wouldn’t want your picture to end up on social media with people telling you not to litter.

Date

Pros:  

We tend to celebrate our wedding in our boyfriend/girlfriend anniversary.  Honestly, I am still thinking about that because it’s kind of a good idea.  But in this kind of wedding ladies, you should consider some particular dates; the location of your wedding can be crowded.  Try to pick one that is not the tourist season so you will have it all by yourself and of course your guests, too!

Cons:

We do not want a rainy wedding, who does, right?  Make sure to research on their weather before choosing a date. When does the rainy season start in this particular country or what month does hurricanes or floods occur?  You need to make sure that you will be having a sunny day outside if you will not be having it inside the church.

Location

Pros:

This means you can have your King Landing Wedding!  Pick the perfect location of your liking, whether it is on the beach, vineyard, hotel, country club, etc.  Whatever you and your fiancé like doing or spending your time together. I am glad that he, too, is a big fan of Game of Thrones!  It is best when the location perfectly describes both of you. You can make sure that the mind set of you guests is really in your wedding not somewhere in the office waiting for the event to finish so they can go back to their unfinished work or pending projects.

Cons:

You might have some other unwanted guests if you do not book your wedding ahead of time for the location. Yeah, no strangers allowed please.
