If you're skeptical about a destination wedding, think again!
If you're anything like me, an elaborate wedding ceremony is the last thing on your mind. Your vision is quite the opposite—more scenic... more tranquil... and even a bit untraditional. Sound about right?
Sure, you can make any wedding unique. But location offers an experience that makes it hard to forget.
On top of the sandy beaches, the colorful sunsets, and the warm Caribbean breeze, most resorts actually have special packages for newlyweds that are intended to enhance the romantic experience.
With Romance Travel Group, they can connect you with these special packages and then some. Romance is in their name, after all!
Some of the perks I'm talking about include room upgrades, resort points—and even spa credits. Couple's massage, anyone?
Speaking of perks, a lot of resorts offer wedding packages that include everything from the decor at the wedding ceremony, to the food and drink at the reception. Not to mention a gorgeous honeymoon suite just around the corner!
In fact, one of the biggest destination wedding myths is that they are said to be more expensive than regular weddings. Shelli Nornes, CEO and President of Romance Travel Group, clarifies that she and her team can plan a beautiful destination wedding for under $10,000—this is quite the deal compared to the average American wedding of around $30,000!
Besides travelling to the wedding destination itself, once you and your
guests are there—you're there!
It's nice to know you don't have to worry about rides to and from the ceremony, to the reception, then back to the hotel again—everything's usually within walking distance.
Additionally, resorts typically have a workout facility, spa, and numerous restaurants and bars—a stamp of approval in the convenience department. Hey, it may even save you a honeymoon trip, if that's what you choose!
