5 sure signs a destination wedding is the right choice for you

Published by Claire Gould on

Elopements and escapes are a big part of modern wedding planning! I hear you – all that planning is too crazy, so why not pack your favourite people onto a little plane and head away somewhere sunny to get wed in a beautiful intimate celebration overseas? If travelling is your thing, then a destination wedding could be right up your street. Just keep it simple, don’t forget your trousers (like our friend did – and he realised on the day of his wedding!) and remember to celebrate with a massive party when you get home!

If you’re trying to decide if a destination wedding is the best option for you, the guys from Design Anarchy are here to help. With over 11 years of experience planning luxury destination weddings, they’ve seen it all and tell us why an Italian destination wedding will blow you and all of your guests’ expectations away.

Destination weddings aren’t for everyone: if you’re not used to travelling or if you’ll worry about the little details then an intimate wedding closer to home could be a safer option – but if you’re dead keen to get married abroad, see if you fit our criteria for the perfect destination wedding couple!

1. You and your partner are adventurous types

If you and your partner love spontaneity and adventure, then a destination wedding may just be for you.

Adventurous types are couples that like to:

  • Think outside of the box
  • Do unique and unexpected things for dates or trips
  • Seek a thrill
  • Explore things that are new and unfamiliar
  • Take chances and are not discouraged by the possibility of something different

Your wedding, above all, should be reminiscent of you and your relationship. If you are seekers of adventure and prefer to be surprised and excited along the way, a destination wedding suits your relationship well.

2. You are frequent flyers

If you love to travel, both separately and together, then a destination wedding certainly suits you well.

Destination weddings give you the opportunity to yet again explore a new culture and take another trip!

It is the perfect excuse to travel somewhere new, not just as a couple, but surrounded by everyone you know and love as well. It is the ultimate holiday, gathering everyone important in your lives in one place to experience something new together.

3. There is a meaningful destination where you’d love to be wed

If you and your partner are drawn to a particular country, city or region, for whatever reason, it may be a good idea to host a destination wedding there!

Exchanging meaningful vows in a meaningful location makes your wedding that much more special and your love for each other that much more intense.

Whether you have a destination in mind because it was the site where you fell in love, took your first trip together, where one of you was born or where he / she proposed, choosing that location for your wedding setting can mean more than choosing to have it anywhere else.

4. An intimate and personal wedding will suit you both

While some people want huge weddings and an extravagant event, others prefer smaller, intimate wedding ceremonies and receptions. Both options are great, but if you are opting for a more personalized and private affair, a destination wedding may suit you best.

When you host a destination wedding, you can automatically narrow your guest list to just a small group of the utmost important people in your life.

5. You want a completely unique and memorable wedding

A destination wedding is far more unique than any wedding close to home. Only a small number of couples consider a destination wedding, making you part of an elite group of wedding hosts.

In your lifetime, you will get invited to hundreds of weddings. Of those hundreds of weddings, you will likely only attend a handful and perhaps as few as one, destination wedding. Don’t you want to be the couple that went above-and-beyond to host a memorable, one-of-a-kind wedding?

Destination weddings can be uniquely customizable, allowing you to blend cultures and ethnicities, traditions and religions into a totally personalized wedding that is all yours.
