Simple Ways to Make Your Destination Wedding Possible

Many couples dream of destination weddings. Getting married on a tropical beach, or in the bright, sunlit courtyard of an Irish castle sound like dreams come true. However, it can be difficult to find affordable options. It’s also going to be difficult for all your friends and family to join you. If you have your heart set on a destination wedding, here are some simple ways to make it possible!

Look for Deals

There are several different options for destination weddings all over the world. Some of them are far less expensive than others. For example, an Irish castle wedding might be prohibitively expensive, but castles in Scotland are often cheaper for weddings. Consider changing the venue or the place depending upon which aspect really matters to you as a couple. There are also deals available for your special day, even when it comes to some of the more expensive options. For example, a winter wedding might be less than half the expense of marrying in the spring or summer. If you’re flexible, you’ll find there are many possibilities.

Celebrate Back Home

If you’ve been able to arrange your destination wedding, it’s a good idea to plan a celebration back home for those who couldn’t afford to attend or couldn’t get the time off. Then, all your friends and family can feel like they’re a part of your special day. It doesn’t have to be an expensive reception. Just a small house party or meet up for cocktails can be enough to gather people together and give you a chance to share your joy. You can even play your wedding video for those who were unable to make it. This is also a great way to celebrate with your loved one again.

Closer to Home

Consider destination options that are closer to home or offer easier travel. There are probably plenty of beautiful spaces closer to your home. Many destination weddings have beaches, for example, and it’s much easier for friends and family to get out to a local lakeside wedding than flying to Aruba. However, if a smaller destination wedding is what you want, then choosing the place that will matter the most to you as a couple is the most important thing. You want to be happy with your decision and look back fondly.

Destination & Distance

Sometimes, places that are more remote can offer an even more dramatic backdrop. When you arrive, you can rent a car to drive out to the destination. It’s also a good idea to hire a wedding videographer, so you can relive the special day whenever you want, hear your vows again & remember all the things that were said and done.

Having a destination wedding is completely possible. If you have a tight budget, or want to please friends and family, use these ideas to improve your original plans.
