Why we love destination weddings and why you will too!
Two VOWS planners elected to have destination weddings and we’re not the only ones! More and more couples are choosing to get married outside their usual stomping grounds. While these types of weddings, such as Karlie & Matt’s Destination Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House in Maui, do require some added logistical consideration – they have some unparalleled benefits also. Here are a few: Maui wedding planner
Reign in your guest count. Destination weddings inherently narrow the guest count. Traveling to your wedding requires more effort, time and cost of your guests. Therefore, those fringe guests, the ones you haven’t seen in years, but feel obligated to invite, are less likely to reply ‘yes’. What remains is the core group of close family and friends you really want at your wedding. Maui wedding planner
Spending more time with your nearest and dearest. Whether a nearby destination or somewhere exotic, most guests will make a vacation out of your wedding. With guests in town a few days before and after the main event, that’s all the more time to spend with your loved ones creating memories and celebrating with you. VOWS Helpful Hint: Don’t forget to plan a group activity or two. A Welcome Dinner the night before or a Farewell Breakfast the morning after make great additions to the itinerary.
You and your guests will be present. I’ve found that nothing beats the energy at a destination wedding. The bride, groom and their guests are in vacation mode…no one is leaving the reception early to get home to a babysitter or checking their work Blackberry. Destination weddings bring out the best in your guests and lay the foundation for a night of incredible memories.
