The Destination Wedding is quickly becoming a very popular Honeymoon trend, and it naturally has many benefits, but most important to many brides and grooms is that it can save you enormous sums of money. Consider that on a Destination Wedding you can fly to a beautiful tropical destination - such as Mexico, the Bahamas or Jamaica - get married and stay for a romantic week-long Honeymoon for an average cost of $3000 to $5000, including airfare, lodging, and all your meals, drinks, and activities. Compare that to the average 150-guest wedding that costs upwards of $15,000 - $20,000 without the Honeymoon!
If you're considering the Destination Wedding option, it's best to start early - at least 6 to 12 months or more ahead of your chosen Destination Wedding date - to be sure that you'll get your first choice of a Destination Wedding, and also so that you can save money on flights and hotels.
Some other Destination Wedding benefits include
- Less stress - Since most locations that specialize in Destination Weddings have Wedding Planners on their staff, who are knowledgable about local marriage laws and customs, you'll be able to spend your time before, and the day of, your wedding relaxing and enjoying some spa treatments while someone else handles all the details for you!
- A treat for your guests - If you have guests who will be joining you (at least for the wedding part of your Destination Wedding), it can be a mini-vacation for them, as many Destination Wedding locations offer a wide variety of activities and sight-seeing opportunities. Your guests can fly in a day or two before the big event for some fun and pampering with you, then leave the day after so you'll have plenty of privacy with your new spouse! It can also be very affordable for them, as Honeymooons By Sunset can arrange for anyone attending your Destination Wedding to get group rates on airfare and lodging that are not generally available to individuals, and can also offer convenient monthly payment plans for them.
- Talk about romance! - Imagine this for your Destination Wedding: the sun is setting the sky ablaze in pinks and oranges as it dips into the azure sea, there's a light breeze blowing off the water, and the sand is warm on your barefoot toes as you stand next to your beloved on the beach - could any setting be more romantic for saying "I do"?
