Here is why you should have a Destination Wedding

Destination weddings are becoming more popular in Australia. Destination weddings offer a variety of wedding styles, climates, and landscapes to choose from. This allows you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and to spend time with your loved ones while also celebrating your marriage.

There are many benefits to having your wedding in a different location than your home. We take a look at five reasons you should consider a destination wedding.

Easy to plan

Some people find the idea of hosting a wedding in a different location daunting. A destination wedding can be easy to plan thanks to the availability of wedding coordinators who will help you design a package that suits your budget and style.

Resident wedding coordinators (i.e. Resident wedding coordinators (i.e. They can also recommend local suppliers because they have strong relationships with them. As they handle all aspects of your wedding day, a wedding coordinator can ease the burden. You can choose to be involved in or detached from the planning of your wedding by working with an skilled wedding coordinator.

It can be more affordable

Weddings can be very expensive. Even a small, intimate family event can quickly turn into a lavish affair with a large guest list.

A destination wedding allows you to save on some of the most important costs, like combining your honeymoon and wedding locations into one. Many resorts offer a complimentary upgrade, such as a suite, and a discount for family members and friends.

A destination wedding may be more affordable depending on where you want it to take place and how many guests are there.

Spend quality time with the people you love most

It can be difficult for a couple to get to know each guest at a traditional (locally held) wedding. Destination weddings usually mean that your wedding guests arrive one to two days before your big day. This allows you to spend quality times together and create unforgettable memories in your special location.

This extra time allows for guests to get to know each other and allow for more interaction. This can make it easier to have a relaxed and interactive celebration on your wedding day.

There are many opportunities to take breathtaking photos.

You may notice that your photos look very similar to those of others who have also been married locally. You may find that your photos are not unique or capture a beautiful natural setting.

Destination weddings offer unique opportunities for magical photos. Working with a local photographer can increase your chances of stunning and memorable photos that incorporate the natural landscape. They are familiar with how to capture the best light and exposure for any natural elements.

You Can Minimize Your Guest List

A destination wedding can be a great way to make your day more personal. It can be done in many ways. This can be advantageous in many ways. For example, if you are getting married far away from your home, then your extended family, friends, and colleagues will often be more open to the idea than if they are invited.

You may also be able to reduce your guest list by asking all of your guests to say “yes” in certain cases. If you are getting married in a destination location, it may not be possible to pay for the accommodation and flights. This could reduce your guest list.

Destination weddings often result in intimate and personal weddings with your closest friends and family. They are eager to travel to your destination and enjoy the chance to spend time in paradise.

Things to consider before you choose a wedding venue


This is the most important thing to consider when choosing a venue for your wedding. You should make a budget before you start your search for the perfect wedding venue. You should first have an idea of how many guests will be attending the wedding. Once you have determined your budget, it is time to start looking for venues that fit your criteria. Destination weddings can be cheaper.

The Lodge at Atlantic Beach offers affordable wedding packages: 


When choosing a venue for your wedding, location is a key consideration. It is important that a large number of people attend the marriage ceremony. You may have guests from all over the country. The wedding venue should be easily accessible by all guests. If the wedding venue is near a popular landmark, guests will be able to easily locate it by using google maps or any other technology.


It is crucial to confirm that the venue you have chosen is available for the wedding date. This point can be ignored if you are flexible about any date or time.


This is another factor you should consider when choosing a wedding venue. It is important to check whether there is a parking lot at the venue. This is important because most guests arrive at the venue in their cars and no one uses public vehicles.


You are responsible for providing all facilities for your guests during the wedding. Make sure the venue has good facilities for your guests. Let’s say that the air conditioner isn’t working correctly. This will reflect poorly on you and your guests. You should also provide snacks and beverages for your guests.


Every person has a wedding. You should take care of the decorations. For all decorations, it is important to hire a wedding planner well in advance.
