Benefits of Having a Destination Wedding
There is nothing more fun and trendier for young active couples than a destination wedding. You can combine the romantic wedding of your dreams with the fun and exciting vacation you have always wanted.
One in four weddings in 2019 were destination weddings and that number has been steadily climbing for the past 10 years and continues to do so. You may be asking yourself what makes destination weddings increasingly popular? Well, let’s start with the financial aspect.
Destination weddings are far more affordable and less expensive than local weddings. The average cost of a wedding in North Carolina in 2019 was $34,000 which is probably not surprising to most. Maybe you will be surprised to know that you can save over $25,000 by having a destination wedding. The average cost of a destination wedding in 2019 was $8,237.
Just think what you could do with the extra $25,000! That would be a good additional to your savings for a down payment on your starter home. Or maybe funds that you can put towards paying off some student loan debt. Seems Like a no brainer to us at Trip and Sip.
By planning a destination wedding through Trip and Sip you can look for additional savings! We work with the resorts and hotels to get you additional discounts & deals when you book the same venue for the wedding as well as the honeymoon. Some venues even provide the wedding as a complimentary service when it’s all bundled as a package. When planning for accommodations for the wedding party you should also know that you can expect on average a 14.6% up to a 42% discount when booking for a group with a 5 Star hotel.
Destination weddings are ideal for smaller weddings. Whether you are attempting to encourage a smaller RSVP list or are having a private ceremony between close friends, we would highly recommend a destination wedding for you.
