Destination Wedding Overview

By Cheyenne Stone

Weddings have been held in your own home, church, in a local garden, or in some place close to the home of the groom or bride’s family in tradition. But as Americans become more mobile, living thousands of miles from their families in some cases and marrying people from the other side of the country in others, it’s grown more and more inconvenient to schedule the right place to have your wedding. His home or hers? How do families who live in fifteen different cities get here? What is fair?

When you are planning for your wedding, destination wedding should certainly be one of your choices. There is no doubt that planning for a destination wedding should be a bit different from planning for a formal wedding. If you are planning for a destination wedding now, the following ideas will be useful for you.

Destination weddings have become ever more well-known for various reasons over the past several years. You can celebrate your wedding and party for a few days with your family and close friends and spend your honeymoon in the same romantic place.

For most people, destination weddings could be the first time they’ve heard the word but it may have become well-known among those who have instant wedding plans. A destination wedding is one that happens in a scenic and usually popular tourist location where both the ceremony and reception may be held. Popular locations include the beach, a medieval castle or a secluded villa. The bride and groom will normally stay behind after the wedding and straight into their honeymoon while their guests head back home after the party.

Destination weddings would seem perfect for any couple but they’re not exactly easy to organize, especially when the whole entourage needs to travel far. On the other hand, this doesn’t need to be a major concern these days since there are lots of travel agencies on the Internet that are in fact, masters in handling these occasions. If you are considering something like this for your own wedding, you can simply find an agency that can take care of all the arrangements to make things convenient both for you and your guests. Everything will be taken care of from your air travel to your accommodations. Then you can simply concentrate on the details of the wedding.

Cities of Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan in Italy are popular places for destination weddings. The tropical island of Hawaii is also another favorite, along with the Bahamas, the Napa Valley vineyard in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.

If you’ve chosen a location outside the country, be ready for a lot of preparations. Remember, you need all your guests to have their passports, along with other tourist paperwork as required by that particular country where you’ll be having your wedding. You may have to keep rearranging your agendas because of uncooperative ones while you may not have any problems with guests who already have their papers ready.

Other things you’ll have to look into are the religious practices of the locals as well as the ordinances or regulations that need to be followed when having a wedding in that certain jurisdiction. Furthermore, you have to know the weather forecast which is an important concern especially if you’re traveling out of town. If the occasion will be celebrated outdoors, you should get a forecast so you would know when rain should be expected. You don’t want to travel miles to that destination, only to have all preparations ruined by a single overlooked detail.

If you want to have a destination wedding, you can try searching online for a travel agency and they will help you find different packages. You will be presented with different options on all inclusive resorts. If you want an all inclusive vacation, different packages are also available.
