I know a lot of my friends think that destination weddings are really lavish affairs. Let’s face it: weddings can be expensive, but when you want to hold your wedding away from home - you’d think that things may get a little complicated. So I decided to do some research into whether it was possible to have a destination wedding on a budget.  And the answer is: yes! All it takes is a little planning. So I’ve decided to share some of what I found from couples who prove that it can be done!

  

Avoid Peak Seasons

There is some good news for you guys: destination weddings are hot. This means that there’s a lot of competition between destinations - which means that you can get a good deal if you plan carefully.  One tip that wedding couples shared repeatedly is that you should avoid peak season to get the best rates.  If you are planning to get married in a resort, rates are often slashed during off season periods. So that fancy hotel that you have been hoping to hold your wedding at may be a possibility. Another bonus of travelling off season is that your ticket prices may be reduced.

  

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Discounts

One of my friends is known as the discount queen in our circle. “There is no shame in asking,” she always tells us, “the worst they can say is no.” The same goes for destination weddings. We are assuming that you are travelling as a group and most hotels (and some airlines) are happy to throw in a group discount.  Now, a friend who works at a five-star hotel reveals that there are few factors you have to consider when asking for discounts:

 i. The minimum number of nights you are expected to stay

ii. The number of confirmed guests checking in (check if your guests can afford the hotel rates first before contacting the hotel)

iii. What is included in the package (if meals are included) - and what the extras are (extra costs can be very expensive so always check first!)

iv. Ask what extra services that the hotel can throw in for free

  

Stick To A Standard Package

Your location will be stunning enough to keep the wedding decor to a minimum. Often resorts will offer standard packages and there may be other weddings apart from yours.. Stick to what’s offered in the package as extras can cost a bomb. Wedding planners at most places have catered for hundreds of weddings before yours. So the chances are that your wedding will be a special affair. Of course, you’d have to cater for your guest’s dietary requirements. Instead of spending lots of money on the decor, a friend who got married in Goa, suggests that you enjoy the natural beauty around you and the resort’s gardens. It’s your surroundings that make a destination wedding so special.

 

Plan A Weddingmoon

A “weddingmoon" is a combination of a wedding and a honeymoon. To any wedding couple, it also means saving a lot of money if you are having your wedding and honeymoon in the same location. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to explore the place you got married in and spend time with each other after your guests leave!
