Having a wedding at a beautiful place instead of the vicinity of your home is referred to as a destination. It can be a extravagant affair with a lot of guests, or limited to a few close ones, including immediate family and good friends.
Here we give you 5 reasons to have a destination wedding; and 5 reasons to not. You see, we have all the Pros & Cons!
WHY YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE A DESTINATION WEDDING
Destination weddings never really attract a very large crowd because of so many uncountable reasons. It will always consist of your close family, a few distant ones and friends who will probably call you to their destination weddings. So, if you are a fan of big family gatherings and the whole euphoria, this might not be your cup of tea.
If anything, a destination wedding would either teach you to be a really good manager, or it will turn out to be the worst decision of your life. Advanced bookings, itinerary, florists, climatic conditions are some of the many things you would become responsible for, all at once. It is quite possible that the objective of your wedding would change into completing it successfully, instead your marriage.
Traveling, again, is a very big issue. If at all, it should be delt with separately for a smooth wedding. You will be asking your friends to miss board meetings and presentations at the office, your unwell relatives to fly across the country( or even the world ) and the economically unstable guest to disturb their safety plans, only because you decided to have your wedding at a place of your choice. Late reservations and missed flights would only add on to your problems.
If you were planning to extend your wedding destination as your honeymoon escape too, then, there is trouble waiting at your hotel door. Some of the guests might want to stay for a longer time, and you’ll keep bumping into them every single day. One would want privacy while being on honeymoon, yea? What about that?
