I'm an ocean-obsessed Midwesterner with a travel agency specializing in all-inclusive resort vacations & destination weddings.

My signature accessory is dog hair. My love language is witty sarcasm. I could eat Chipotle every day. I listen to Guns n Roses while decorating the Christmas tree because Welcome to the Jungle works in any situation. Try as I might, I just can’t quit the Real Housewives.

You’re engaged and living on cloud nine! Then it’s time to start planning the wedding. You start researching venues, caterers, photographers, officiants and DJs. Suddenly cloud nine is feeling stressful and overwhelming.

Have you considered a destination wedding on the beach? A destination wedding in the Caribbean or Mexico at an all-inclusive resort could be EXACTLY what you need.

Here are 7 reasons why you should consider having a destination wedding in paradise.

#1 – Gorgeous Scenery

It doesn’t get much prettier than a white-sand beach, gleaming turquoise water and a colorful sunset as the backdrop as you exchange your vows. Forget spending lots of money on flowers and candles…mother nature will provide this beautiful scenery for free!

#2 – Save Money

Did you know that having your wedding at an all-inclusive resort could save you tens of thousands of dollars?? According to The Knot, the average cost of a hometown wedding in 2019 was $33.900.

A destination wedding starts anywhere from $0 (yes, I said zero) to $3000 for the simple base package, which includes a lot. Our average destination wedding client spends about $10,000 for their ceremony, reception and photography. Now that’s a big savings!

#3 – Your Celebration is Several Days (Not Several Hours)

Talk to any married couple and they’ll tell you their wedding day flew by. It’s truly impossible to have long, meaningful conversations with all of your wedding guests during your wedding reception.

Now imagine you have a destination wedding and you get to spend several DAYS with your friends and family instead of just several hours. You’ll be able to give everyone the attention they deserve!

#4 – Your Families Get to Know Each Other

Let’s face it…you really only have the whole family together on a couple occasions. Weddings and funerals. Your wedding is your #1 opportunity for your families to get to know each other.

And what better way for them to converge and connect than on a vacation together? They’ll spend their afternoons at the swim-up bar, splashing in the ocean, or zooming down a waterslide. They’ll spend their evenings singing karaoke or dancing the night away. It’s these carefree moments that forge lifelong bonds and bring new families together.

# 5 – Less Stress, More Fun

When you get married at an all-inclusive resort, pretty much every detail is taken care of for you. Decor, food, drinks, entertainment, clean-up…..all part of your super affordable wedding package.

You don’t have to spend hours scouring Pinterest for cute crafty centerpieces….and then painstakingly assembling them.
You don’t need to embarrassingly ask your friends and family for help setting up the wedding reception (and even worse, cleaning it all up at the end of the night).

Instead, you have a built-in wedding coordinator and team whose sole purpose is to make your wedding day stress-free and FUN! All you and your guests have to do is show up and have a great time.

# 6 – Memorable Experience for Everyone

OK, truth time. How many weddings have you been to? How much do you remember about each of those weddings? Probably just little bits and pieces. Certainly not the lifelong memories the wedding couple envisioned.

Now think about your last vacation. How memorable was that? Now imagine that fun vacation + your closest friends and family. That’s a recipe for lifelong memories. They’ll still be talking about your epic wedding years from now!

# 7 – Be Different

OK, think back to all those weddings you’ve attended again. They kind of blur together, don’t they?

A destination wedding is your chance to be different. Nearly 75% of Americans have never attended a destination wedding. This is your opportunity to stand out from the crowd. Show your friends and family YOU know how to throw an epic wedding celebration!

These are just a handful of reasons I love destination weddings. If you’d like to explore the idea more, I’d love to chat with you! We’ll discuss all the pros and cons & see if a destination wedding is the right fit for you.
