Hi All -
I'm getting married this fall (yes, I know, that's really soon!), and my fiance and I are thinking about a destination wedding, just going somewhere else and avoiding all the traditional hassle.
What are the pros and cons of a destination wedding?
Any help would be much appreciated. We're leaning toward a cruise or something like Aruba.
Congratulations on your engagement! Destination weddings are always fun and exciting, it extends the celebration for longer than a few hours. A wedding on a cruise ship is entirely possible. The best part? You can invite everyone onboard for the ceremony, have cake and champagne, say goodbye and then cruise away for your honeymoon or continue the party with guests who wish to tag along. Not to worry, cruise ships are large enough for privacy as newlyweds! Weddings in Aruba can be done beautifully and there are a few guidelines that must be adhered to in order for your marriage to be legal here in the US. I am certified wedding planner and Travel Agent University certified destination wedding specialist.

I am a wedding planner and I have recently been in touch with "Weddings and Honeymoons Abroad. They have explained many exciting ideas for weddings that are out of the US and had wanted me to be the representative for the greater Seattle, WA area. I am considering the offer and wanting to add this information to let my clients know about destination weddings. Destination weddings are always more expensive to the wedding party and their guests, if they are done correctly.
Our suggestion would be to gather all the information you can to make your decision on having a destination wedding. See the final cost and always allow for the miscellaneous last minute expenses that will surely come up.
I agree that if you want a wedding in the US it would be great to pick a location near your home town so everyone that lives near by would have the option to travel or stay at the destination, what ever they could afford.
If you need any help in a destination wedding and you wish to travel to the beautiful Northwest-Puget Sound area, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can certainly help you with anything that you will need.
We hope everything turns out the way you have envisioned your special day.
