Wedding Destinations for the Sentimentally Minded

Aug 21, 2008
The dress is no longer the sole concern of many a bride! Instead, the destinations which may serve as the backdrop for the perfect wedding also now rank very high among the items which concern brides ? and grooms alike ? and which now also receive almost as much, if not more, attention than even the dresses and color schemes!

This trend has given rise to a genre in the wedding business known as destination weddings. Known to celebrities for a long time, the average American is now taking advantage of the fact that the Irish Blarney stone, a moss covered castle in jolly old England, or the Escorial outside of Madrid makes for a wonderful wedding destination! Sure, celebrities have a lot more money to spend on their nuptial excursions and it is not surprising that while many couples would love to explore foreign destinations for their marriage celebrations, the budget attached to such outings make them prohibitive for the majority.

Fortunately there are a wide variety of local destinations that lend themselves as backdrops for the perfect wedding. Taking the wedding party either just out of town or maybe simply down the road, there is now the opportunity for any budget to experience a destination wedding! Wedding planners quite frequently have established ties with venues that are in high demand by those ready to say their vows, and therefore even the budget conscious will find that something is in store for them.

Cruise lines are coming on board with the idea and it is not unusual to find that an onboard wedding package not only includes the wedding itself but may even be combined with a competitively priced honeymoon package which will make the boat a one stop wedding experience.

Those who do take their wedding on the road will find that the destinations of choice not only provide the location for their marriage but also activities for the reception and the days that follow. When you consider that the size of the guest list at a destination wedding is usually much smaller than that at a local wedding, many couples will include their traveling guests in many of the onsite activities they will pursue.

The rationale behind those opting for a destination wedding as their sole choice most frequently revolves around a memorable occasion, such as the location of their first kiss, the place of the wedding proposal, or maybe to commemorate the first date. Yet some simply appreciate the idea that they will already find themselves at the location of their honeymoon and therefore the stress of travel and the necessity to entertain a large number of guests is noticeably declined. It is wise to consult with an experienced wedding planner who will make all of the onsite arrangements and thus once again limit the anxieties with which you will have to deal.
