We've heard a lot of talk around these common destination wedding misconceptions - so today, we're setting the story straight!
MYTH #1: HARD TO PLAN
Many people assume planning a wedding in a remote location is much more difficult than planning a wedding locally. But what couples don't realize, is that travel agencies specialize in romantic travel – particularly destination weddings, and cover all these details FOR you. There's no need to stress – your travel specialist does all the leg work for you!
MYTH #2: IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE
With the traditional American wedding costing over $30,000, it's no wonder most people assume a wedding in an exotic location would be more. Luckily, most properties can hold a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception for you and your guests for as little as $10,000 –significantly cheaper than the average local wedding.
MYTH #3: TOO COOKIE CUTTER
Are you avoiding a remote wedding because you don't think you can add those personal touches like you could in person? Think again. When you book with a travel specialist, they'll hook you up with the resort's wedding planners whose job it is to pull off gorgeous wedding setups for you well ahead of time. In addition, the wedding planners communicate with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding is as lavish as you expected upon arrival.
MYTH #4: GUESTS WON'T ATTEND
Truth is, there are many perks in booking your wedding at an all-inclusive resort. Guests group rates are fairly inexpensive and reasonable, and considering that food and drink are included, it winds up being a better deal than a traditional wedding. Transportation is also taken care of by your travel specialists from start to finish, so you and your guests don't have to worry about getting from point A to point B.
MYTH #5: THERE'S LIMITED OPTIONS
This is a HUGE myth –there are endless options out there! Since searching for the perfect wedding destination can be a bit overwhelming for couples, consider booking with a travel specialist who is a PRO at finding you everything on your wish list, and then some. A good travel specialist travels to a variety of destinations and resorts annually to make sure they will provide a great experience for couples and guests. They will help you narrow down your options based on pricing, venues, food, and more.
