Benefits of a Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding Whitsunday Island

Planning a traditional wedding can be such a stressful time and increasingly couples prefer to do it the simple way.  If you are thinking of having a destination wedding but can’t quite decide, here are some reasons why you should pack your wedding dress and jump on a plane with your groom to be.

Unique and personal destination weddings

A romantic destination wedding can be a truly unique occasion that you can personalise to suit your requirements.   You can introduce different cultures and experiences to make your day even more special.   Your chosen destination will also provide some stunning photo opportunities that you would not be able to have back home.  There are some amazing destination photographers who will travel to your wedding to capture those special moments. 


Less people tend to attend a destination wedding, which means you can spend more quality time with those you love.  You can spend a few days relaxing before the wedding with your close friends and family.  For those that cannot make it, have a post-wedding reception when you get back and another opportunity to wear your dress.


Planning can be very easy for a destination wedding.  You save so much time because you do not need to visit all of the different wedding suppliers.  Wedding consultants at the resorts on location can take care of all the details for you.

Relatively stress free

Weddings can be very stressful and can sometimes create family dramas.  Families may be in different parts of the country or the world, so a destination wedding offers a neutral location.  Destination weddings provide a beautiful and memorable location while giving friends and family a holiday to remember.

Cost effectiveness

By combining your wedding and honeymoon into one destination you will save on travel costs.  Plus, having fewer guests means more to spend on yourselves during your honeymoon.
