The joke is that “Destination Weddings” actually started thousands of years ago with a bride who wanted to get away from an overbearing mother.
The truth is that destination weddings have turned into a favorite. Nowadays destination weddings are a first alternative to traditional weddings.
Destination weddings are generally smaller, cheaper and more intimate. They are quite often combined in a place that also serves as the honeymoon location. And yes, most destination weddings include close friends and family, overbearing parents optional.
This is a countdown of the top reasons /excuses to say yes to your dream destination wedding.
The following reasons were provided to us (SarasotaWeddingIdeas.com) by the many brides and grooms we’ve had the pleasure of serving.
Destination Wedding Countdown
NUMBER 12. I started planning our wedding and I’m totally overwhelmed. I just got started and I’m stressed out already, there’s got to be another way.
NUMBER 11. I wrote down my guest list and it’s HUGE, there’s no way we can afford this. Sorry – short on funds, we’re doing a destination wedding instead.
Number 10. A traditional wedding is just not for me; besides I want to get married somewhere warm…just following my feelings on this.
Number 9. This is my second marriage and I’ve already done the ‘big wedding ballroom’ thing, this one is going to be personal and fun, lots of fun.
Number 8. Even as a little girl, I’ve always dreamed of getting married on the beach at sunset and that’s what I’m going to do. Now I just need to find a beach somewhere. (We suggest Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota Florida).
Number 7. My mother has taken over control of my wedding, this is NOT a good thing it’s a very BAD thing. I’ve tried talking to her but that just doesn’t work. You would think that this was her wedding not mine. This has to STOP!
Number 6. My fiancé and I already know that we want a small wedding on a beach somewhere, probably in Florida. That’s what we both want and that’s the only reason I need.
Number 5. Traditional weddings are great but they also cost a lot of money. My fiance and I also really like the idea of an intimate wedding just a few close friends and family not a bunch of people we barely know.
Number 4. We both have friends and family who live all over the country. What better way to bring everyone together than at a tropical destination.
Number 3. I’ve heard many older women tell me that if they could do it all over that they would have a destination wedding. So that’s what we’re gonna do, a destination wedding it is. After all, my parents have always told me to listen to my elders and learn from their mistakes. Just do’in what you told me to mom and dad.
Number 2. We thought it would be a great idea to combine a destination beach wedding and our honeymoon, a ‘WeddingMoon’ and celebrate it all week long. How cool is that?
Number 1. The stress and cost of a formal wedding is just too much. We both agreed that an intimate beach wedding was what we both dreamed of, case closed. BTW, our parents love the idea!
These are just a few of the reasons to go the destination wedding way. In the end; couples need to trust their feelings on the subject and do what’s in their heart. Remember, your wedding is supposed to be about you, the bride and groom. After all this is your one day, you can’t get it back.
