Updated: May 23

Are you planning to say "I do" in a dreamy destination? You're not alone!

Sustainable Celebrations

Conscious couples are embracing eco-friendly practices, from opting for local, seasonal cuisine and flowers to choosing venues with eco-conscious initiatives. You can reduce your carbon footprints while immersing in breathtaking natural surroundings.

Cultural Immersion

Couples are giving guests authentic experiences by incorporating local artisans, customs, and experiences into their destination weddings. Some of my favorite wedding favors were created by local artisans.

Micro Weddings and Elopements

Couples are opting for intimate gatherings to curate more meaningful and personal experiences. A smaller guest list allows you to spend more time with your guests, and opens up a larger number of destination venue options. And elopements, whether atop a mountain or on a secluded beach, offer romance and privacy.

Technology Inclusions

Technology plays a pivotal role in ensuring that loved ones near and far can witness your vows via live stream. Virtual guestbooks add a modern touch to traditional celebrations.

Enjoyable Experiences

Destination weddings are no longer just about the big day...they're about embracing wellness, relaxation, and fun throughout the entire experience. Couples are treating guests to group yoga sessions, relaxing spa treatments, and outdoor adventures, ensuring everyone feels rejuvenated and pampered and included.

Personalized Touches

From keepsake welcome bags filled with local treats to favors that reflecting the couple's love story, personalization is being used to create unforgettable moments for both the couple and their guests.

Mini-moon to Honeymoon

Enjoy your chosen destination for a few more days with those who took time out of their schedule to celebrate with you, and then take off to your private honeymoon for some romantic one-on-one time with your spouse!
