As Valentine’s Day nears, one of the most popular holidays for proposals, many newly engaged couples will soon find themselves on the road to planning their big day. One of the first decisions that need to be made while wedding planning? Picking a venue. Choosing a location and booking a venue heavily determines when your wedding will take place and what you will be putting on your save the dates so it’s very important to lock down the setting as soon as possible.
Why Choose A Destination Wedding?
There are many reasons to plan a destination wedding. First, if you or your significant other have family in another country or you want to pay homage to one of the countries that your family holds dear to them, choosing that country for your destination is an almost seamless decision.
If you desire a very small, intimate wedding and want to make it easier for your friends and family to accept this reality, a destination wedding is also a fine choice. This also has the possible added benefit of a long overdue vacation pre-wedding for you and your loved ones as well as an early start to your very own honeymoon.
What you thought was a once in a lifetime dream could very well be your dream come true destination wedding. Now is the time. If you pick the right venue at the right time, your destination wedding could amount to less than what you would pay at home with more benefits. Especially if you choose an island...
