Destination weddings aren’t a new trend, but they’re becoming hotter by the year, as more couples seek to make their special day as unforgettable as possible. While this can provide an exciting opportunity for their guests to explore a new region, the practice has its pitfalls. Read on to learn more about what to expect from this celebration within a vacation.
What To Expect
Higher costs. While a traditional wedding often requires some travel expense, a destination wedding isn’t just more expensive for the bride and groom—guests are expected to pay for their own airfare, lodging, and meals outside of the wedding reception.
Events galore. There will likely be a welcoming event, a rehearsal dinner, the ceremony and reception, and often a day-after brunch.
Having a good plan. That being said, don’t rely too heavily on the bride and groom. Often, they’ll have a wedding website set up with details on accommodations and directions.
