Destination Wedding on a Budget? Go Ahead and Make your Dreams Come True!
Destination weddings are all the rage these days thanks to the inspirational pictures of fantastic celebrity weddings. Who can help but be inspired by those stories of lavish getaway weddings where friends and families are flown over to an exotic location like Rajasthan or Bali? If you’ve got the budget for a similar event, then there should be nothing holding you back, but for most couples, destination weddings seem more than a little out of reach. Actually, there are many ways to make your dream of an exotic, destination come true.
Of course, cost is the first thing, but you can easily get over this barrier by scaling things down. When you have a destination wedding, you’ll have to accept that many friends and family will not be able to attend. Even if you offer to foot the airfare and hotel costs for a few people, they might be tied up at work, or tied down by family commitments. Wedding for Two
One way to get the destination wedding of your dreams on a limited budget is to make it a very, very small one. Many hotels do packages where the only people present are the bride, groom and minister. Though you may have dreamed of sending out hundreds of beach wedding invitations, you might not be able to afford the huge cost of a large, destination wedding. Many hotels offer destination weddings for two starting at a few thousand dollars. By opting for a romantic wedding for two, you can stretch your wedding budget to pay for a wedding and honeymoon in Mexico, Bali, Thailand, or Europe. When you return, you can always have a reception or send out wedding announcements.
If getting married without your family and friends is not an option, another thing you can do is to coincide your wedding with a family vacation. This way, you get your near and dear at your wedding ceremony while still stretching your budget to pay for a wedding at sunset on a beautiful beach. To do this, talk to your partner and list the important people you would like to have at your wedding. Next, talk to them and ask them whether they would be interested in going on a vacation-cum-wedding. Aside from beach or island weddings, weddings at ski-resorts are also quite popular. Many travel agents specialize in destination weddings and they will be able to get your group quite a good discount. You’ll be surprised at how many of your friends and family will be game for a quick getaway.
Another way to get a destination wedding for a budget is to start shopping for packages far, far in advance. Most travel agents will have a website where you can check all the prices and options. Popular destinations other than beach or mountain weddings are the romantic cities of the world, Paris, Venice or Rome. With specialized wedding-cum-travel agent, your options are endless. Booking ahead will get you really good discounts, no matter who is footing the bill.
So, if you’ve always wanted a destination wedding, don’t give up because of budget limitations. By have a wedding for two, a vacation-cum-wedding or by booking a year ahead, a dream wedding in Tahiti or Aspen is possible without breaking the bank. Explore the possibilities, and you might just be sending out those beach wedding invitations soon!
