Is a Destination Wedding Right for You?

AZUL Sensatori sky weddingDestination Weddings can be glamorous and fantastic, but they are not for everyone. They are a growing trend, due in large part to the costs of a formal wedding, and the reality that many couples want to spend less time planning the event and more time enjoying it.  The benefits are plentiful: you get a more intimate setting with just a few witnesses rather than a large guest list, a smaller crowd generally means it will cost less even if you choose to have all the options available including a private reception; they are meant to be more casual and laid back than a wedding at home; and you get to experience a wonderful ‘toes in the sand’ holiday at the same time.
