1)You choose the gorgeous backdrop for your destination wedding. Beach weddings are very popular but there are infinite wedding locations. (Couples love getting married by water as it is a marvelous stage.)
2)You can combine the wedding & the honeymoon. No need to book a separate honeymoon trip. The bride & groom can stay with the wedding party or honeymoon at another resort nearby. (An adult’s only all-inclusive resort is heavenly without the kiddie pool but if children are attending then a family resort with lots of amenities is a wise choice.)
3)This is a great time to spend real time with your friends & family. You will have more than a few minutes with friends as your wedding day is spread out over several days. Do not be disappointed in those that cannot make it though. Usually the guest pays for their own trip. (Keep the welfare of your guests in mind. You know your friends & family. If you want them at your destination wedding do not break their banks!)
4)Wedding couples can save a lot of money depending on their destination wedding location. Remember that you are not paying for sit a down dinner for 200 guests. Destination weddings tend to be smaller & more intimate. (Your guests are traveling to be with you. Make it special for them too. Put on a bit of a show.)
5)You can do it your way. Usually the bride is inundated with wedding advice from good intentioned friends & family. It can be over whelming. No need to listen to them. You would be wise, however, to take the advice of the resorts wedding coordinator. ( I do not suggest having a destination wedding at a resort without a wedding coordinator unless it is a very small wedding with lower expectations.)
As a travel agent who specializes in destination weddings & honeymoons I follow the news & trends in this niche closely. Keeping current helps me generate new & improved destination wedding ideas.
Destination wedding are popular because they are fun & affordable. Getting married in Mexico will cost considerably less than your traditional wedding at home.
Planning a destination wedding is also less stressful for the bride & groom. Securing the talent of a good destination wedding planner can make all the difference in how smoothly the process goes.
I think the future is bright for the destination market & for couples that choose a destination wedding.
Resorts are advertisings to couples and are offering more amenities for choosing their resort. This keeps the market competitive & also reaching higher to please.
