While most couples choose the wedding venue close to home, others see a wedding as a chance for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. For those, it’s the time for a fantasy journey to destinations whose very names mean romance.
For example, I have planned small intimate ceremonies in Paris with just the bride and groom and their immediate family and the couple continued on a romantic honeymoon to Florence and Rome.
Other destinations like Portugal, Italy and Ireland are gaining popularity for wedding destinations.
If you have limited funds, consider the free wedding options offered by many all-inclusive resorts. Resorts and cruise lines often include planning services in their wedding packages and offer attractive pricing midweek or in low season. If you are planning a wedding on a larger scale, you may want to consider a takeover. Many places allow you to rent out the whole property. Not only will you have privacy and the entire staff at your disposal, but the bulk rate is usually less than what you’d pay if you booked each room separately.
From flowers to photography, resorts handle the entire ceremony that the couple will never forget. And not only can you have an unforgettable wedding ceremony, there is boating, tennis, golf, fishing, hiking, bike riding, restaurants, stables, spa for your guests to enjoy.
