The inside scoop for you on destination weddings!
While flying over to a perfect spot to get married is one of the most popular wedding trends, there are things you probably didn’t know about destination weddings. But worry not, because we have the inside scoop for you!
When it comes to destination weddings, an image of a happy couple posing against the backdrop of a glorious beach pops right up. But destination weddings do not have to be synonymous to palm trees and crashing waves of some beach. Almost 70% of the destination weddings are held outdoors and there must exist some good places apart from beaches, right? You can forget about the usual beach trend and make your destination wedding unique by choosing different locations such as mountains, historical places, rooftops overlooking some beautiful scenery or even castles or Tuscan vineyards.
Desi traditional weddings could last a few weeks with non-stop series of festivities and guests piling up in your house. However, destination weddings are more about an experience than an event that never seems to end. Neither do you have to worry about the guests trickling in because you are only going to take family and close friends along and squeeze multi-day events into one destination wedding. Your family and guest also tend to bond and spend more time with each other than just the event-time.
After all the intense and careful planning that goes into arranging a destination wedding, the need of a good photographer should not be neglected. We agree that the idyllic landscape of perfect spots turns even an average camera picture into a perfect memory. But that doesn’t mean you should compromise on professional photography. Make sure you invest some of your time and money into hiring a good wedding photography who knows to capture your precious moments with the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
Just because you said ‘Qabool hai’ at one lovely spot doesn’t mean you have to fly to another lovely spot for your honeymoon. You choose one particular spot for your wedding whether it’s in the mountains or at foot of an ancient Irish castle. You’d still have many places in the city or country to explore and make the most of your honeymoon. If you like, you can think of the destination wedding as a head start to an amazing honeymoon. Fun, right? Forget about the extra flights and jet lags and hit the nearby beach.
A lot of people think that planning a destination wedding is a total headache. And frankly, when you think about it, a near to home wedding is no less than a pain in the butt either so it might seem fair to dread planning one from a remote distance. But what you probably don’t know is that with the help of a good planner or specialist, most of your problems will be solved without much hassle. So, find someone who knows the area well, let them do the research and focus on maintaining that glow for the wedding day between the mountains.
