The Benefits of a Destination Wedding

Whether held in the Caribbean, Europe or even Australia, I love that a destination wedding translates to a longer, more intimate and ‘upgraded’ celebration, as it often becomes a full-fledged vacation experience for everyone attending. This enables brides and grooms to select exotic locales, private resorts, gourmet restaurants, fabulous entertainment, indulgent activities and much more, keeping their guests comfortable, well-fed, relaxed, entertained, pampered and immersed in quality time with the soon-to-be newlyweds.

Here are a handful of my favorite destination wedding ‘perks’ that have proven to be worth the splurge…
1. Embrace the ‘theme’ of the location to inspire the organized activities. Think: beachside luaus, private pool parties, golf outings, massages within earshot of the seashore, boating trips, s’mores under the stars…

2. Boost the welcome basket bounty. Guests really appreciate a thoughtful arrival surprise, as they find fun and essential gifts such as flip flops in the wedding colors, custom-printed monogrammed labels on water bottles, a rundown of the area (i.e., map, currency, transportation, trusted activities, etc.), indigenous snacks…

3. Step up the details that make a difference with custom-designed elements including invitations, printed table runners, a menu of decadent made-to-order cuisine infused with local flair, a spectacular pièce de résistance wedding cake…palmeri211palmeri232palmeri281

4. Pursue coveted vendors, especially the ever-important photographer. In fact, I encourage couples to fly in their preferred shutterbug to ensure their precious memories are properly documented and preserved for their happily ever after…palmeri190palmeri157

A smaller, more intimate gathering affords hosts and hostesses the opportunity and flexibility to splurge across the board. The possibilities are endless — and effortless for those who put it all in my creative, capable hands.
