Thinking of having a destination wedding but haven’t yet quite decided. Maybe we can convince you with our top ten reasons to have a destination wedding or elopement.
1– The world is your playground – you can choose anywhere to hold your ceremony, from a mountain top to a tropical beach. Here on Samui you have your option of both!
2– An intimate guest list and wedding. This is a good excuse to cut down on the number of guests to those nearest and dearest without feeling guilty. Besides you can always hold a party when you return – so two chances to celebrate. It will also bring a more intimate feel to your day and afford you time to talk with and share time with those who matter most to you. Elopements are also hugely popular here on Koh Samui, with couples deciding to hold an intimate ceremony here on the island before celebrating with family and friends back home.
3-Cut down on costs – with a smaller guest list you will find that your budget becomes smaller and you will spend less plus there are lots of wedding packages offered by wedding planners or hotels that can give you great discounts.
4- Cut back on the décor – this in turn is going to cut down on costs and on your stress levels. With the beautiful natural backgrounds not much needs to be added for beautiful pictures…
5-The photographs…and about those photographs – they are going to be stunning, whether on a beautiful tropical beach with the sunset behind you or in a vineyard or on a mountain.
6- Have a wedding, honeymoon and vacation all rolled into one. There’s nothing better than that.
7- Time to party. Having a destination wedding means that the party is likely to go on for a few days. It’s a great chance to catch up with everyone and reconnect with your closest and dearest. It will be a great vacation for everyone involved and they may also save a bit – with many hotels offering special rates and discounts for large groups.
8- Casual clothing – shoes optional for those beach weddings, everyone can just kick back, relax and enjoy the moment with you.
9- Grooms will feel involved. This is a chance to plan a vacation – nights out, sightseeing trips, with your closest friends and family and the guys generally feel more involved with the planning of the wedding as a whole.
10- Stand out from the crowd – You will have a wedding to remember and for all your guests to remember in the years to come.
Costs of a destination wedding have often been a concern but they really don’t need to be expensive and we can help you have the wedding of your dreams and your hearts at no extravagant cost to yourselves.
