According to the wise ol' internet, a Destination Wedding is a wedding (planned in advance) in a foreign country, usually at a high-end resort where the couple, the wedding party and guests stay for several days. -- Wiktionary
The average cost of an "at home" wedding has skyrocketed to over $33,000, according to The Knot (2017). It's no wonder that so many modern, smart and savvy couples are choosing a Destination Wedding!
Compared to a traditional celebration, a Destination Wedding is one of the most cost-effective, memorable and unique ways to start your new life together.

A Destination Wedding is a unique, memorable and wonderful way to celebrate and start your marriage. I was a destination bride myself; my husband and I agree that our wedding was one of the best weeks of our lives. When we first planned our wedding, we (wrongly!) assumed that 10-15 of our closest family and friends would join us. In the end, nearly 60 guests committed their time and money to witness our amazing Punta Cana celebration.
It was a joy and a pleasure to experience; something that we could not re-create in a traditional "home" wedding. In today's busy world, it is nearly impossible to spend quality time with so many people.
