All the properties have packages. Not only are costs lower in other countries, the resorts have contracts with vendors that lower your rate. For Example, the total cost for a beach wedding in St. Thomas is around $1850! That includes your Wedding License, Officiant, Flowers for Bride and Groom, Cake, Photograher, and even a limo from the ship to the venue!
You could add your cabin on a 7 night cruise (includes your food and entertainment) and still be under $4000 for Wedding and Honeymoon. With some properties in the Mayan Riviera your wedding is free if you have enough guests come with you.
4. You Don’t Want the Stress of Planning a Wedding
Your Mother-in-Law will not be happy about this because, although she might complain, you know she will enjoy planning your wedding… and her vision is not your vision.
If you have a Destination Wedding, the resort, cruise line and your travel agent do all the planning for you. All you have to do is pick out your dress, your new bikini and concentrate on losing that 5 pounds before the big day.
5. Your family is from a different city than your Fiancé’s family.
You grew up in Tallahassee, your fiancé is from Omaha. One of your family’s is going to have to travel to attend your wedding. Therein lies the rub… which family has to travel?
Avoid the conflict. Choose a “neutral territory” because no one family is better than the other. Plus a vacation together will allow your in-laws to bond while you enjoy your private honeymoon time.
