5 Ways to Save on
your Destination Wedding
In comparison, the average cost for the destination wedding couple has remained well under $10,000 for over 10 years!
Just like at a traditional wedding, receptions can tend to be a little pricy. But, making a few simple adjustments (without sacrificing on ambience or an incredible view), can add up to thousands of dollars saved! – Offer food stations instead of a formal sit-down meal – Choose native-grown foods, which also add a little local fusion flair
Get creative with receptions.
Resorts and hotels are highly interested in securing group travel, so they’ll often go out of their way to offer special amenities to couples traveling with groups. Even if your guest list is small, longer trips (meaning additional nights booked at the hotel) usually add up to bonus amenities, too!
Take advantage of complimentary events & group amenities.
If you choose entertainment through your resorts’ Preferred Vendor list, you are sure to save yourself extra stress, work and money! – Browse through the resort Preferred Vendor list for added discounts – Solo performers (like a guitarist or violinist) can cost less than bands
Explore out-of-the-box entertainment ideas.
Enjoy romantic dinners on other nights and resort/spa credits with your wedding package
Register for a honeymoon fund to allow guests to help pay for your dream vacation rather than buying you pots and pans! Honeymoon at a different resort in the same destination. Even better, you can use some of those savings on an extra spa treatment or an exciting excursion.
Save on your honeymoon.
Leading up to the wedding, getting as hands-on as possible with last-minute details means less out-of-pocket spending for you. – Create DIY guest favors as a more personal and affordable option – Avoid holiday weekends and peak travel periods
Pay attention to details.
Extend your stay post-wedding for added credits, upgrades or free nights at your wedding resort
