Congratulations on being engaged- what an exciting time! Following you will find some basic information on Destination weddings – please feel free to contact us with any other questions that you may have!

What is a Destination Wedding?

Simply stated, a destination wedding is a wedding in which the engaged couple and/or a majority of their guests travel to attend the ceremony. Quite often the wedding is combined with the honeymoon making it a cost effective and wonderfully unique and special way to say “I Do”. At Sand & Sun Vacations we specialize in destination weddings to the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii/South Pacific.

Why do Couples choose to have a destination wedding ?

  • Less Expensive/ Better value The large cost of a formal wedding makes it ideal to roll the cost of a wedding and honeymoon into one grand event! At some resorts they may even be able to have a basic Free wedding!
  • Romantic and adventurous couples dream of having a unique and unforgettable wedding, whether on a stunning tropical beach with the ocean as a backdrop, in the midst of a winery, on   a glacier, a chapel in Vegas (with or without Elvis), a cruise or on the edge of a volcano!
  • Couples wish to spend less time planning the event & more time enjoying each other!
  • Many times the majority of guests will need to travel anyways! Most of your guests will undoubtedly love the excuse to take a mini-vacation!
  • The opportunity to have a smaller intimate affair with their closest family and friends.

Is a Destination Wedding right for you?

Honestly, a destination wedding will not be the best choice for every couple. Many times a family member may not be able to make it because of illness or finances, family  may be strongly opposed, or if you need immediate results or the ability to visually inspect every detail you may find that a destination wedding will cause you more stress than a  traditional at home wedding.

If you are a couple that has already spoken to family & friends and have good supportive feedback, have a plan in place  in case a beloved family member can’t make it, understands that things are done “on island time” and can look at a destination wedding as an adventure, then you will love having a destination wedding and have amazing memories!

Once you have decided that you want to get away to “tie the knot”, where do you start?
