Top 6 reasons to have a Destination Wedding

A destination wedding can involve just the two of you; a select handful of close family and friends; or enough guests to constitute a week-long family (or friend) reunion.  Here are 6 justifications to wed away from home:

1.   Destination Weddings are Virtually Stress Free!

A state-side travel consultant, such as Jenn Carr from The Tropical Travelers, can he[p with all of the travel related details for you and your guests while an on-site wedding coordinator can recommend wedding packages that take care of all the little details such as the ceremony, cake, photography and more.

2.  No Family Drama

The first day that begins the rest of your married life should truly be about the two of you and your desires.  A destination wedding takes away the stress of planning for you and your families.

3.  Destination Weddings are Cost Effective

Couples can wed at an all-inclusive resort for much less than they would spend on a large traditional ceremony and reception.  Complimentary wedding packages are available, along with custom packages that fit your budget.  Most resorts will even throw in complimentary amenities based on the size of your group.  An added bonus….a built in honeymoon.

4.  You Call the Shots

The ceremony and location will represent you individually and as a couple that may or may not incorporate family traditions depending on your desires.

5.  Perfect for Second Marriages

For those who have had the traditional wedding, destination weddings provide something different that is simpler and less expensive.  For families with children, kid-friendly all inclusive resorts provide a chance for family bonding.

6.  Once in a Lifetime Reunion Opportunity

This is your chance to give your family and friends time to spend together while celebrating your special union in a fun, relaxing environment.  Why cram your celebration into one day?  You can throw the ultimate welcome party, a group catamaran tour, a beach bonfire or a farewell brunch….the ideas are endless.  Your guests will thank you for giving them a vacation of a lifetime.

How to Plan a Simple Engagement Party

Fabulous Finds from our Wedding Weekend! (at least to me)

As those who follow me on Social Media know, my husband and I attended 2 fabulous but totally different weddings this weekend, both 3 hour drives from starting point.

The first one was a great friend son’s wedding at the Four Season’s Baltimore.  Fabulous hotel, helpful staff everywhere to accommodate you.  Apparently, awesome labels are the latest thing so this article is sharing goodie bag suggestions along with their labels/tags.

At the wedding at the Four Seasons, there was a beautiful bag stuffed with goodies.  Not shown but always a plus is water bottles, Advil (which I used), Altoids, there were even plastic silverware and napkin for the bundt cake.  Beck goodies and more

Above is just a sampling of what was in there.  We didn’t want for anything before the wedding.

At the conclusion of the wedding, the wedding cake had these beautiful labels.   Thanks so much Sammi and Corey!

Off to the second wedding in Long Branch, New Jersey.  It was the wedding of my husband’s first cousin’s son and his lovely fiancee.   It’s a very beautiful quaint shore point.  One thing that really impressed us was this touch in their lovely bag…  I love the sand dollar and the salt water taffees were very cute.  Thank you Wendi and Evan!!

On the outside of their bags was this adorable tag…

In their bag were the usual water bottles (which I greatly appreciate).  They had great goodies but my favorite was this little mesh bag with first aid items.  Great touch!

The favor bags at the wedding had M&M’s to match their red, black and white colors and these cute bags with tags.  Love is Sweet Label:favor

These weddings, like I said, very different but with very thoughtful touches even before the weddings.  We had a blast at both!   First with friends, the second with family whom we don’t see enough of.

Very tired and much to do so I’m going to say farewell.  I hope you enjoyed this blog post.

I’d love to hear from you with your thoughts, comments, to make an appointment….
