5 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Destination Wedding Over a Traditional One

Congratulations! After a long stretch of searching and kissing a few frog along the way, you have finally found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Your happily ever after is about to come true, but where, how, when....? The list goes on. Destination weddings will never go out of style and even though many are unable to afford this luxurious way of tying the knot, it is a beautiful way to celebrate your union. (Hint: If you have a rich uncle or a trust fund hiding away, it might be time to access both!)

Consider having a destination wedding if you dream of tying the knot while your feet sink into the smooth silky sand, the ocean waves crash in the background and while the sun shines down on you both. If you are a lover of all things tropical, then a Caribbean or Mexico destination wedding might be the perfect choice for you to express your undying love for each other. Here are 5 reasons why a destination wedding is the best choice for your wedding day.

#1: Many people tend to believe that destination weddings are really expensive and unavailable for the average joe. This is simply not true. Depending on the size of your wedding, there are numerous resorts that offer fabulous group package deals. The average cost for a destination wedding including 100 guests is anywhere from $17,000 to $19,000, where as a traditional wedding can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $150,000 depending on your finances. Destination weddings are a bit different and you usually would have a much shorter guest list as many won't travel far. That's ok, it makes your special day more intimate in the long run.

#2:  The greatest benefit of a destination wedding is you get to decide what type of background you will have. Will it be the tropical shores of Mexico or the shimmering turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean? Or perhaps the Rocky Mountains of Canada, a magical castle in Tuscany, Italy or a lush vineyard in California? It's up to you to set the picture.

#3: A wedding and honeymoon all in one trip? Yes, it is true. You can enjoy celebrating your union with your friends and family and then continue celebrating your love together and alone once the party has left. There are some fabulous packages that combine a wedding and a honeymoon all in one price. Some resorts even offer free weddings, free room and flight deals for groups and more!

#4: You can finally wear the wedding dress you have always dreamed of. You may have dreamed of dressing elegant in a ball gown type of dress which would be best suited for a castle in France of Italy, or perhaps you have always wanted to be covered with flowers while wearing a dress that flows softly around you. Perfect place? The Caribbean or Mexico.

#5: You can allow all the stress that comes along with a traditional wedding just melt away. Many of the Caribbean and Mexican resorts have excellent packages that include a dedicated and passionate wedding planner, organization and a stress-free wedding. Why worry about centrepieces and a menu on your special day? Say your 'I do's' and unwind, tropic-style.
