The Benefits of a Destination Wedding

If you’re currently planning your wedding for the future, you should absolutely keep a destination wedding in mind as a viable option. Depending on your families’ dynamics, how small or large of a wedding you want, and a few other factors, a destination wedding could solve most, if not all, of the issues you’re running into and make for an unforgettable event (not that you’d forget your wedding anyways).

First and foremost, when planned properly, a destination wedding can save you thousands overall. Rather than renting a venue, hiring a caterer, florist, honeymoon, and everything else that goes into planning a wedding, you can contact a resort at the destination of your choosing and have the wedding and honeymoon all in the same spot, no additional travel necessary. As a bonus, you can have your closest friends and family with you to make the event into a vacation celebration for longer than you’d be able to in the traditional separate venue and honeymoon location strategy.

Maybe instead of wanting a big wedding with too many people, you want to keep it intimate with only your closest friends and family. One big reason that couples opt for smaller destination weddings is to avoid any potential family blowouts that sometimes happen at weddings. Even if it isn’t a blowout, the families of the spouses may not see eye to eye on all decisions of a wedding, such as location and guest list. Having a scaled back destination wedding puts all the power and control back into the hands of the couple and keeps any soon to be in-laws from making too big of a fuss.

Since you won’t need to worry about what any parents or family members have to say about location and production, you can focus on the few remaining details of your wedding. Plenty of resorts offer in-house wedding planners, coordinators, caterers, and more all wrapped up neatly in a variety of packages to fit your budget. Not only that, wedding planners at the destination understand what makes the area and subsequent weddings special, so they’ll oversee and spearhead all of the creative and clerical direction to ensure your special day is magical and joyous. When you work with a coordinator at a destination wedding resort, you can choose to be involved every step of the way, or leave it to the professional so you can get in some extra rest and relaxation time.

Tips for Saving Money Before & During Vacation

When it comes to traveling, one of the biggest, if not the biggest, concern that individuals, couples, and families have about their trip is the budget and how much the getaway, vacation, or honeymoon is going to cost them. And that’s a very fair and real concern to have. We understand that it can be stressful to plan and fund a memorable vacation and not need to eat cup noodles for months to financially recover from the trip. If you’re in the planning stages of your next getaway and want to find some cost-cutting measures to enjoy your stay without breaking the bank, we’ve got you covered with these simple tips.

Be your own chef

One of the easiest ways to blow through your travel budget is to eat out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Worse yet, some people take the opportunity to go off the rails of whatever diet or meal plan they’ve been following prior to the trip, opting to eat like a hobbit. Have you caught yourself asking your partner if you could get second breakfast? Elevensies? Lunch, supper, dinner? A simple way to open up your budget for better accommodations, or fewer but more luxurious meals, is to make most of your food and meals at your rental condo or hotel.

This can be extended to before your vacation as well. Rather than buying lunch during your shift and heading out to your favorite eatery in the evening, start meal prepping on the weekends so you can cover all of your lunches in one cooking session. Is it the most exciting thing for the week? Not really. Will it help you budget for that incredible dream vacation? Undoubtedly.

Cash out

If you aren’t dead set on any particular location, you can always look for ones that have an exchange rate that will benefit your wallet. Plenty of destinations will pay you more per dollar, meaning you’ll have more money to spend once you get there. Now that’s making your money work for you.

Anywhere, anytime

In addition to not having any one destination in mind, if you don’t have any particular time of the year that you need to travel, take a look into heading to your desired destination during the offseason. You’ll get the entire place to yourself! Say goodbye to wait times, traffic, and standing around. If you choose warmer locations, you likely won’t mind the “cooler” season either as it still gets hot.

Celebrate

Keep an eye on the calendar, both domestic and local to where you’re traveling. You’ll likely be able to score a great travel rate and cheaper accommodations since no one will want to be traveling at that time anyway. Additionally, there may be local events happening that you can attend to fill up your schedule while you’re on your tip.
