The Destination Wedding Trend

There has been an increase in what is known as destination weddings – those weddings held where neither the bride nor the groom lives, or necessarily has family there.  It has been estimated that one in ten weddings are destination weddings – a massive increase over the last decade.

Today’s couples marry later in life as compared to 15 or 20 years ago and they are often more well-traveled, plus they may want something more exotic. Top destinations for U.S. couples include:

  • Mexico – It’s close and couples love the warm, sunny weather, culture, coastlines and wide choice of accommodations.
  • Hawaii – No passport required and great almost any time of year.
  • The Caribbean – Fine boutique hotels and price competitive all-inclusives attract many couples.

Check the “travel” category of our vendor listings for companies that you may wish to consider.  Something I learned just recently, Ambassador Travel, in Belleville has a Honeymoon Registry.   With so many couples now having most of the basics they need for daily life, contributing to a Honeymoon Registry is a nice gift that all couples can enjoy together.
