Destination Weddings..can you cut your budget?

July 17, 2009 Weddings Unlimited, Inc.

Destination weddings appear to be on the rise. Is it because of the economy, or the fact that couples are looking for the dream location where they can share their special day with close family and friends?

Since destination weddings often have smaller guest numbers, a large chunk of the budget can be downsized for food and beverage. It’s a lot more economical to pay for fifty guests than one hundred and fifty.  Be cautious though! Will you be covering the cost of travel & lodging for these guests? School of thought is: they would be traveling anyway! Research the difference in transportation and lodging for an at home wedding vs faraway.  

Destination wedding  locations like Sandals and Beaches in the Caribbean offer all inclusive packages. Knowing your expenses up front will keep you at ease and not have to worry about unexpected or hidden charges!

Other options: Plan a destination wedding including only your parents and a small wedding party. When you return from your honeymoon, have  a reception for the larger guest list. Again, this could or could not be a savings.  Be a wise shopper. Certain months, day of week and location often provide savings.  Even service providers have their specials.
