Ready for the ultimate leap of faith? Here are unique wedding destinations to say ‘’I do’’.
Weddings are good times. For the bride and groom stuck with all the planning, not so much. For the guests on the big day? Definitely.
While the event itself is a joyous one, there is no denying that a lot of hard work and patience goes into the actual making of it. Arguments happen, things get heated up and even unkind and untrue accusations are hurled back and forth. All in the name of creating the master piece that would later be the couple’s dream wedding.
The venue of any event is its canvas. Getting the ideal place locked is the first step that brings to life, all what the lovers envision for the day that celebrates their union. One may argue that it is a whole lot of fuss for a day that might later remain only in form of photos, videos and little snippets of memories in our head but hey what’s life without them grand gestures and going a little over board for love. We all want the day we say ‘’I do’’ to be perfect. Magical even if I may say so.
You can learn a lot about a person should you choose to plan a wedding with him/her. Their thoughts and ideas will give you a deeper insight to who they are, something that does not surface during coffee dates and romantic rendezvous in the back of the car. This I learnt the hard way during our arguments about seating arrangements and a failed attempt to convince my husband to sport a suit that wasn’t black. Like I said, a lot is riding on a couple’s quest for a unique wedding reception, not just for them but for their immediate family and a host of people who have created an entire industry to cater to brides and grooms looking for a unique wedding. So if you are in that point of time in your life, brace yourself for impact!
The world around us is absolute bliss with breath-taking places to choose from for our special day. While some locations may be relevant for its aesthetically pleasing nature, others might be home to cultures, norms and traditions that will encourage the exclusivity you are aiming at.
There is a world of choices to choose from starting from the humble ground beneath your back yard. The options to choose from stretches to both corners of the world and includes even the freezing glaciers in which wedding ceremonies are pulled off. That is how create you can get.

More reasons to love Destination Weddings
Wedding doesn’t come cheap. That is a given. Attempting to pull off an exclusive wedding means that it is going to tank your bank balance even more. For your guests, this means that they need to pocket out more than the usual they do for a wedding. So what can you do to help?
While it is feasible to make arrangements for a wedding not far from you on your own, there is more to be concerned about if you are hosting your wedding in a whole new location, somewhere you have to fly into. Though it may feel as if this exercise is only an outflow of cash not only for you but for everybody else who is attending, did you know that you do not have to bear the brunt of it as a bulk?
With an affiliated wedding planner your whole group can enjoy low, minimum deposits and a personalized payment plan by locking in an economical group rate and an installment based payment scheme.
Your dream to a destination wedding doesn’t seem to be too farfetched now after all does it?
