Three reasons destination weddings are less stressful
Destination weddings can be a fun, and creative option when it comes to having your big day. But does it cause more or less stress?? You can higher vendors you love, get married at a romantic spot that is unique, and travel while doing it! We are excited to be shooting more destination weddings in 2018, and want to help inspire yours!
Destination weddings are a vacation for everyone, and who isn’t happy on vacation?! You can’t argue with that. One of our favorite parts about destination weddings is how much time you get to spend with the people you truly enjoy. Because you will be getting married so far away, typically this means you have a smaller, more intimate wedding. And in wedding terms, smaller means less stress! Less people means you get to spend time with those closest to you. I can’t think of a better day than marrying your best friend, and being surrounded by your favorite people!
Mixing two families can bring a lot of stress to your relationship. One of the great things of a destination wedding is everyone gets to know each other during the days leading up to the wedding! Instead of throwing your families into a room for the night, let them mingle, explore a new city, and really get to know each other! It will make it to where you don’t have to entertain your guests, because they will all do it for you!
Destination weddings can also be a stress relief financially. Weddings in San Diego, California average about $40,000. On the other hand, a great destination wedding can be done for about $15,000! That’s a huge savings! If you are stressed about the cost of your wedding, we highly recommend looking into flying to your favorite vacation spot to tie the knot!
We have loved traveling for destination weddings. Whether you decide to elope with just your fiance, or want to take your closest friends and family along, we would love to help you capture your big day! Traveling while photographing sweet couples is one of our favorite things. We’ve traveled to Lake Tahoe, all around California, Mexico, New York and Colorado for weddings!
Not being stressed for your wedding is a MUST, and always recommend keeping it simple, not stressful.
