6 Amazing Perks Of Destination Weddings

The location... perhaps one of the most challenging decisions any couple has to make while planning their wedding. People often assume that the venue is the first thing that must be decided on when planning your wedding, but you can't choose the venue if you don't first know the general area you want to get married in! Many couples choose venues that are close to home, but some choose faraway locations for their destination weddings. Both of these options have their unique advantages, but today we're going to look at six unique perks of having a destination wedding.


1 ~ You're Already There For Your Honeymoon
Are you absolutely in love with your honeymoon destination? Why not make it the setting for one of the biggest moments of your life? Take a little extra time off work and travel to your dream destination - the beach, the mountains, or even on a glacier! After your have your ceremony, you can roll straight into your honeymoon celebrations.

2 ~ It Will Cut Down On The Guest Count
If you and your fiance want a small, intimate ceremony, then having a destination wedding could be the perfect excuse. It gives you the chance to get away and celebrate with only those closest to you (or just the two of you!), without hurting anyone's feelings. 

3 ~ You Will Have Amazing Photos
The photographs are often the most important part of any wedding. You may spend months or even years planning, but your actual wedding day will fly by and you'll be left wondering if all of the little details actually happened. Your photos will be beautiful reminders of your special day - and if your wedding took place on a beach or in the mountains, your wedding photographs will be even more spectacular!

4 ~ You Can Keep It Simple
A destination wedding is simple? It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but think about it: weddings on remote beaches are always simpler than weddings in grand cathedrals. If you're planning a destination wedding, the attire can be more casual and the decor can be more simplistic. After all, why spend hours slaving away on decorations when your setting is already stunning?


5 ~ You Set Your Own Terms
In a perfect world, every bride and groom would be able to get married exactly the way they wanted. Unfortunately, when you get married close to home, one of your parents is bound to step in with his/her own set of expectations regarding your ceremony and reception. If you choose to plan a destination wedding, though, all standard traditions go out the window. You and your husband-to-be will be able to set your own rules and design the wedding of your dreams.

6 ~ It Will Be A Great Story
A lot of people daydream about having romantic destination weddings, but a surprisingly small percentage of couples actually make it happen. Planning a destination wedding may seem overwhelming, but if you stick with it and see it through, you will have a wedding story that you will want to tell over and over again.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
