It is flexible too, meaning that you can adjust your wedding according to your budget and preferences.
3. You Can Limit The Number Of Pesky Guests!

Destination weddings have various other expenses, such as hotel room expenses, renting expenses, and expenses that will be required to make your destination wedding a grand one.

4. Destination Weddings Are All About Going Wild And Thinking Out Of The Box
Want to escape from the typical Indian wedding experience? Destination Weddings are a perfect opportunity!

5. Leave Your Stress At Home
When you and your family are organizing the weddings themselves, you have too much stress in your mind. Catering, decorations, events etc, can give even the most stress-free person a headache. Destination weddings can reduce this stress considerably. Your hotel will take care of your decorations, catering and events. You just have to give them the details. There are dedicated wedding planners who will take care of organizing your wedding. Many even specialize in the destination wedding sector.
6. Get To Spend More Time With Your Guests
You get to spend days, and not merely a few hours with your guests. Since you invite those whom you rant to come, you will enjoy spending time with them. You can explore the exotic location together, have fun activities. Along with a romantic getaway, there can be a fun getaway too. Rather than dealing with unknown guests, you can give ample time to the people you cherish.
7. Get A Value For Money Experience!
Local weddings aren’t cheap. You need to spend on caterers, unknown guests, venue, baraat etc. If destination weddings may feel expensive, however, on-site weddings have their share of expenses, that too on things which you may don’t like.
8. No One Has An Home (Dis)Advantage
Depending on how you look at it, either the bride or the groom has an advantage or a disadvantage of having the wedding venue at your place. One side will be able to get guests to their wedding guests easily since they stay nearby to the venue. On the flip side, you will have to invite more people due to obligations and you don't have an excuse for not inviting them.
With destination weddings, no one will have an undue advantage or disadvantage. Since it is a destination wedding, both sides have equal responsibilities regarding cost, looking for a venue, arranging guests etc. You both can sit, relax and enjoy the wedding together.
Destination Weddings seem convincing now, doesn’t it! Your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience! Don’t let monotony ruin it! Your life is a movie and your wedding should be its the most memorable scene! Check out more of our blogs to know more about getaways!
