Why You Should Consider a Destination Wedding

There are many reasons why you should consider a destination wedding. The Caribbean? Playa del Carmen? Mexico? Jamaica? Cancun? The first and most obvious one is because you want to get married at some amazing or specific location, but you happen to not live there. See? Simple. Because you want it that way.

Another reason is convenience. Maybe it’s convenient for the two of you. Maybe it’s convenient for one side of your family. Or just for the most important person other than the two of you (like for example if your mother/father/relative that you MUST have at your wedding, can only travel so far/has travel restrictions – then you definitely want to do what you can so they may attend.) That might include having the wedding closer to that relative. Which may mean that you are traveling to them.

OR. You happen to live someplace that you don’t like that much. And no one else lives there either. So you pick a different place. One that’s in the middle of everyone. 

Whatever your reason – along with all of the usual logistical concerns – you will want to consider how easy it will be for everyone else to attend your wedding. If everyone is having to fly into town – is it nearby a decent airport? If everyone can drive – is it a 2 hour drive or a 8 hour drive? That changes things dramatically. Think it through for your guests (at least the ones that you WANT attending your wedding ha.)

Still. Having a destination wedding can be as easy or as difficult as having a wedding down the street. Literally. Think about it in the same way as moving houses. Whether you’re moving down the street or across town – you still have to move ALL THE STUFF. Whether you’re getting married down the street or across the country – many of the same wedding things and parts still have to happen. Like a ceremony, and reception, and parking, and bathrooms, and food… all those same things. Right? Right.

Basically – have the wedding where you want to have the wedding – where you REALLY want to have the wedding. And if that means you’re getting married in the Caribbean then oh well I guess that’s what you’ll have to end up doing!
