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.

What Happens When the Travel Ban is Lifted?

Are you tired of Tik Toks, Instagram music covers, This or That questions in people’s stories, and searching for another sourdough recipe? We’ll safely assume, yes, you are. You’re probably dreaming of the day when we can return to normal and get on with the lives we had planned before COVID-19. If you’re following our coverage, you’re more than likely dreaming of a vacation.

Was your annual trip, weekend getaway, honeymoon, or anniversary ruined by the virus? You’re in a welcomed company as the travel industry ground to a halt seemingly overnight. Some politicians are calling to re-open the country immediately. Some medical experts say that’s an unwise decision until we understand the virus and how to treat, cure, and/or prevent it better.

Regardless of your political ideology, you most likely aren’t traveling much right now. But it won’t be this way forever. We all have the future to look forward to when we can take those trips we had planned, or maybe have planned in the coming months. But, what is the travel industry going to look like right when the shelter-in-place orders are lifted?

For one, things are going to be hectic, and airfare is likely going to skyrocket. People are going to rush to their laptops, phones, and Denver travel agents to try and get something on the books, meaning demand is going to go way up, and supply is going to drop. You can either book now while fares are low, but run the risk of shelter-in-place being extended, or wait it out and try to beat the rush.

The destinations are where you should focus your caution, not because any places are more likely to have lingering cases of COVID-19, but that everywhere will have a concentration of people again, likely some who are carriers of the virus, and we may see a second spike and wave of infections. It may be wise to wait things out a bit once the lockdown orders are lifted, just to be safe.

Plenty of people are protesting shelter-in-place and ironically contracting the virus, but it’s a glimpse into what may come when we’re allowed to travel as we once were. Things are strange, and a little caution goes a long way.
