Ways to Save on Your Dest Wedding!Words by DestinationWeddings.com
You've dreamed of tying the knot on a sun-washed beach and celebrating with your friends and family in a decadent location. But, understandably, you want to keep the costs manageable without sacrificing quality or atmosphere. Good thing that for the past decade, DestinationWeddings.com couples have managed to have their wedding costs come in under $10,000. How is this possible, you ask? Here are some of our best tips on how to save while planning a dream destination wedding.
Choose an All-Inclusive Resort
All-inclusive resorts are always a plus when it comes to having your (wedding) cake and eating it too. Choose one where your meals, drinks and most, if not all, of your on-site activities are included. When booking rooms for you and your wedding party, there's no guess work on the price. Consider the make-up of your wedding party and choose an adults-only or family-friendly option. Either way, you and your guests can relax and not worry about extra fees at check-out.
Select the Right Wedding Package
One way to save money is to select the wedding package that fits your needs. At many all-inclusives, complimentary wedding packages are offered if you meet a minimum guest count. If you’re envisioning a more intimate affair, keep an eye out for elopement packages for just the two of you. Either way, a number of perks may be included, ranging from ceremony décor and reception details to flowers and photography packages. This way, everything you need is summed-up into one perfect package…for free!
Honeymoon Without Additional Airfare
One of the best perks about having a destination wedding is the fact that you can simply extend your stay into your honeymoon (think of it as a jumpstart to newlywed bliss). After the celebration, simply stay at your resort for even more days in paradise or, better yet, see if there is a sister property nearby that you can escape to for a few more nights. That way, you get two different experiences, for the cost of one plane ticket. Can you say win-win?
Look for Deals in the Right Places
When working with a Destination Specialist, you’re bound to get the inside tips and expertise needed to save money throughout your planning process. From tricks such as booking an off-day to having early access to the best deals, they will be there to guide you every step of the way. Be sure to keep an eye out for exclusive offers (like these!) you won't find anywhere else in the world outside of DestinationWeddings.com.
