Destination Wedding By Following a Few Key Steps
More and more couples these days are considering destination weddings instead of traditional weddings back home. Traditional wedding costs keep skyrocketing, with no end in sight. To counter this, you should consider an affordable destination wedding.
Destination weddings are popular because they can be inexpensive for the wedding couple while still being romantic. The wedding couple can get away from it all on a destination wedding and keep their overall wedding costs under control.
But as demand for destination weddings increase, destination wedding venues have learned how to charge more during higher demand times. This can easily reduce the savings to be found.
Fortunately, by booking in slower periods or off peak times, or when specials are being run, you can still find affordable destination weddings being offered.
So how do you know when and where to book a destination wedding that won't break the bank and still be romantic and special? Read on and we'll share with you the secrets of finding affordable destination weddings.
Learning the Rules of Affordable Destination Weddings
Usually only your closest family members and friends will go to a destination wedding. Because of this, the number of guests attending will be smaller. You therefore avoid having to pay for 100+ guests at your wedding reception, like your business colleagues, those you work with, your boss, casual acquaintances, your parent's neighbors, or others you really had no desire to invite to your wedding to being with.
Also, keep in mind that your destination wedding is also combined with your honeymoon, keeping your overall costs affordable.
What costs are the responsibility of the wedding couple at a destination wedding?
Generally, the wedding couple pays for the room accommodations at the resort, plus food and drinks for your attending guests. In turn, your wedding guests are responsible for their airfare to get to the destination wedding resort plus any other additional expenses.
How long should your attending guests need for a destination wedding?
In most cases, your destination wedding will be over a long weekend, roughly three to four days for your guests. Once your wedding guests have gone, the wedding couple stays on and enjoys their honeymoon at the resort for the rest of the week.
Since many people today wait longer before deciding to get married, they usually have already acquired enough things to set up their house. They don't need, want, or have the space for more dishes, flatware, kitchen appliances, etc.
Instead of having your guests buy you wedding gifts, instead ask them to use the same money to purchase airfare to your destination wedding. By doing this your guests will now be able to afford to attend your destination wedding. You closest family members and friends understand the value in doing this and are usually in agreement with your rationale for having a destination wedding.
