Do you and your sweetheart envision an intimate wedding in a stunning local rather than a big country club affair filled with aunts, cousins and your mom’s friend from grade school that you see once a decade?
Finding it hard to narrow down a guest list when you have so many people just a short drive away? Then choosing a destination wedding can be a liberating experience! It often allows you to plan a wedding much truer to your vision of a perfect day than your families while still keeping the peace!
After all, since The Knot suggests you can expect a 50% acceptance rate for destination weddings while the rate for a local weddings soars to 85%, you can make mom happy and extend an invite to distant Aunt Betty while being reasonably confident she won’t make the trek.
Congrats!! Crisis and family drama diplomatically averted!
Now you can now focus on the important stuff; like writing your own vows, planning a fun excursion for your group (camel riding
makes for an ummmm, memorable photo) and spending several days lounging in the sun with your BFF’s.
AVDW tip: Take the stress out of answering your guests travel questions by letting one of our Specialists help with their accommodations. We’ll even create a personalized travel website (for free!) with all the information needed to get em to the beach on time!
Don’t forget, that at the end of the day, your wedding is about you and your partner and long after the cake has been cut and the band has played its last song, what you’ll remember is how the two of you felt!
