Destination Weddings defined

The definition of a Destination Wedding is very simple. It is a religious or civil ceremony that officially celebrates the beginning of a marriage. This takes place in a location in which the bride and groom have traveled to get there, limited only by their budget imagination and local license requirements.

Today many destination weddings occur in Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean or aboard cruise ships. Other couples travel to places like the Great Smoky Mountains or Las Vegas. Destinations are almost unlimited.

A major advantage of this type of wedding is that the bride and groom can travel to their dream destination to start their married life. Many times the destination as serves as their honeymoon.
