What Does My Destination Wedding Have to Be…?

What Does My Destination Wedding Have to Be…?

The answer is anything. Your destination wedding should be anything you want. While there are etiquette and standard practices for any wedding, the choice is yours. Today, many brides have opted not to follow the standard practices, and have instead chosen to follow their own path down the aisle. It’s your wedding day, and most of all, it should reflect what you as a couple want. What does my destination wedding have to be? A destination wedding can be as elaborate or as simple as you prefer. Whether your vision includes a casual beach wedding with simple decorations that highlight the beautiful surroundings, an elaborate haute couture gala held in a castle, or anything in between, it can be planned and executed from a distance with ease. The most important detail is YOU! What do you want? Casual, whimsical, classic, themed, formal…you name it. All can be accomplished at any destination. Okay, there may be a limitation here and there for your location. For example, a certain flower for your bouquet may not be available in that part of the world, but the best part of a destination wedding is including some of the local flare from the location you’ve chosen in your plan. A destination wedding does involve being flexible on some details, but many amazing alternatives are usually available. The best part of a destination wedding is the relaxed atmosphere that starts the minute you and your guests arrive, and continues throughout your...

Can I Take My Family on a Destination Wedding?

Can I Take My Family on a Destination Wedding?

Can I take my family on a destination wedding for me and my future spouse? This is a question for some couples considering a destination wedding. They’re just not sure how the dynamics of it all will work. And now I can honestly say in my opinion it is a wonderful opportunity to create wonderful lasting memories for everyone involved. I spent this past weekend at a family wedding in my home town. My family is scattered all over the country and we rarely are all together so it was a reunion of sorts. Ok, honestly I wasn’t sure how the weekend would be. So many different personalities coming together for a long weekend, it could be wonderful or a really bad episode of reality TV. But as I sit here at the airport waiting to catch my flight home I am smiling at what an extraordinary experience it was and how much I learned about my family and my history. Seeing cousins, aunts and uncles for the first time since I was a child was wonderful. You hear bits and pieces through the years but spending time together and really getting to know one another again as adults was just marvelous. We are all so different and yet that bond was there instantly and it wasn’t long before we were laughing and joking like best friends. I think this is one of the unexpected and perhaps best things about a destination wedding. Yes, there are many great reasons to have a destination wedding but before this weekend I’ve never had the family bonding that occurs in such a clear perspective. Every wedding is full of memories and wonderous times but I think a destination wedding in itself creates that opportunity to really bring a family closer together and forge bonds that won’t slip away so easily or quickly. Over the weekend I heard the story of how my Great Aunt and Uncle met and I wanted to cry. My Great Uncle was stationed in Italy during WWII and was on patrol when a beautiful Italian girl ran across the street clutching a loaf of bread (dinner for the family). My Great Uncle looked at the man standing next to him and said “That’s the most beautiful woman I have every seen. I am going to marry her”. The man looked at him and said “That’s my niece and No your not”. Undeterred my Uncle discovered her name and address and presented himself at the door of her family apartment the next day. My Aunt answered the door and my Uncle said “You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen and I want to spend the rest of my life with you”. She slammed the door in his face. Still undeterred he proceeded to visit her everyday and when she answered the door he would say “You...
