Destination wedding - 10 Pros and cons

Thinking about destination wedding it’s like music to the ears - beautiful places and instant honeymoon in some exotic location.
Like anything else in life, destination weddings have both pros and cons. Before you make a decision to plan a long distance wedding, consider the following information, which will help you to choose is it the  right option. Cause while this type of ceremony can be a dream come true for some couples, it is a nightmare for others.

1. The reason it is simpler is that many destinations have pre-designed wedding packages that are created by professional wedding planners. The packages usually include an onsite wedding coordinator to help you with planning, getting the officiant, obtaining your marriage license, and catering and all other components a beautiful wedding requires, and the bride and groom need only make a few decisions and the rest is taken care of for them. Make sure to get the right one that you could trust them and put the wedding in their hands and walk away sipping a fruity drink.
2. Destination weddings are typically less expensive than local weddings. The couple pays for their resort stay and the wedding package or their unique design, and the guests pay their own way to the location and their accommodations. With a smaller invitation list, you can avoid feeling "forced" to invite the cousin you can't stand, or the in-law that everyone fights with. Just invite your very closest friends and family to the intimate ceremony and celebration, or keep it romantic and don't invite anyone. This also means you get more quality time with each other and guests. You may get discounts and deals from the resorts when you extend your stay, book a certain number of rooms and arrange your honeymoon at the same venue.

3. A destination wedding isn’t one your guests will forget. They may not remember the lace on your dress, but they’ll remember that time they danced on the beach under the moonlight at your wedding. Your wedding not only provides an opportunity for guests to embrace a new place, but the opportunity to make unforgettable memories of their own. Pictures of your wedding will be beautiful. Whether it’s at a sunny beach, snowy mountain top, or European castle, the backdrop for your special day will be absolutely stunning and unique. You can also almost guarantee that none of your friends or family have gotten married in the location you choose, making your wedding one of a kind!
4. Photos of your wedding will be amazing. You will need to decide whether you will trust a local photographer included in the package of your wedding planer or you will find some lovable one and offer him to go for a journey with you.  If you are taking a photographer to a new destination make sure he will have time to have a look of the wonderful spaces and suggest you where to shoot. These wonderful memories will be important and will remain for the rest of your life.
5. And the best thing is that the honeymoon starts early! A destination wedding is basically a vacation with a wedding included! The entire wedding weekend is like a mini-moon plus a party. It’s easy to continue honeymooning at the venue after your guests have gone home, or you can jet off to another honeymoon location!

1. Having a wedding ceremony in a foreign country is not easy, nor is it cheap. You’ll have to pay for plane tickets and accommodations on top of things like invitations, catering, and a venue. There are ways you can keep your costs low, but a destination wedding will likely never be cheap.
2. There will be fewer guests. You have to assume that a large number of your friends and even some family won’t be able to attend your wedding. Unless you’re going to pay for everyone’s flights, rooms, and other expenses, expect some loved ones to respectfully decline the invite. Older relatives may also have trouble getting around or may be in too poor of health to travel. It might mean that some of your most special guests will have to miss it. But don’t worry, you can always have a party when you return home and invite all those that couldn’t attend.
3. You aren’t in control. This kind of wedding isn’t the best thing for brides who likes to be in control of all the planning. Since you won’t be there in the flesh until right before the wedding, you will have to make all your decisions without being at the location. Yes, many places offer a wedding coordinator as part of the package, but some leave all of the choices up to the bride. Not everyone will be comfortable making long distance decisions about food, flowers, accommodations, and decorations.

4. Before getting married in a foreign country, you have to make sure to do some research on getting a marriage license and any other required documentation to have a legal marriage in that country. Each country has different laws, and you don’t want to find out your marriage wasn’t actually legal! This can be stressful for a couple who is already busy planning a wedding, but the burden can be removed by using a wedding planner based in that country or by booking an all inclusive wedding package from a resort. Which brings us to our next point…
5. Not Much Alone Time. Destination weddings often mean you and your guest list, arrive a day or so before the ceremony and stay for a few days. This means the morning after your wedding, you’ll probably be greeted by some of your guests at breakfast. Your romantic alone time might be shared with a crowd until their vacations are over. But this is a great way to say “thank you” for your friends and family taking the time and spending the money to join you on your special day, consider giving them the gift of a once in a lifetime outing! Giving your guests a day on a sailboat or a tour of a castle makes you hands down the best host ever! However, this is another added expense and requires extra planning that can be a real headache. But if you can swing it, it’s a great way to thank your guests and create memories that will last a lifetime.

The decision is after you!
