Of course, Weddings are important ceremonies as it is a moment where the single lady says ‘ I do’ to the love of their life. However, the location is extremely important for the success of your wedding.
Where do you want your wedding to hold? In a city where it is open to everybody- both close friends and people, you don’t know? Or do you want a small wedding in a place where not too many people can attend? This post would school you.
Thinking of the stress of planning a Nigerian wedding and not wanting to experience that? A Destination Wedding is your best option.
The three main advantages of a destination wedding can basically be summarized with these words: easier to plan, relaxing and close knit.
1. Intimate and Personal
If you want a wedding for just family and close-knit friends, then this is for you. Most destination weddings are small in size and the number of guests is usually around twenty to fifty people.
Logistically, it would be a bit difficult to hold a large wedding a far distance from home. That means many friends and family members may be invited but would not honor the invitation, while some may not even be invited at all.
While this would cause tension and hurt feelings among those who couldn’t be at the wedding, it would be a plus for you. One of the benefits of a destination wedding is that it is an intimate and personal affair.
It is also a wonderful experience to have just all of the couple’s really close friends and family members gather together to celebrate the special event. Want to cut crowd at your wedding and have the funds for it? A wedding destination is definitely for you.
2. Easier to plan
Destination weddings can be so much simpler to plan and execute than close to home weddings. The most difficult task in planning a destination wedding is deciding exactly where the wedding would hold and who’d be invited. This may seem super hard since it can be very difficult to plan an event that is long distance, but it actually is easier than people think.
The reason it is simpler is that many destinations have pre-designed wedding packages that are created by professional wedding planners. The packages include all of the components a beautiful wedding requires, and the bride and groom need only make a few decisions and the rest is taken care of for them.
If the couple wants to create their own wedding design, they can obtain the assistance of professional wedding planners who are located at the desired destination, and they can take care of all the little details that need attention.
3. Reduces Stress and Cost
Planning a wedding can be very stressful, frustrating and annoying. Many times, family and friends create drama and confusion for the couple, sometimes unintentionally. Having a destination wedding helps to eliminate a great deal of stress since the wedding is far away and only a limited number of people can attend.
Also, enjoying the convenience of a wedding package that includes everything the couple needs allows them to enjoy the day and relax.
Though they still have a few details to take care of, but overall, the people at the venue do all the strenuous work and lifting when it comes to planning the wedding. This gives the couple enough time to relax and prepare for their big day.
Destination weddings may have their flaws but you can definitely not deny that it is relaxing, stress-free, soul lifting and fun-giving.

4. Crowd control is easier
You do not need to worry about crowd control when you have a destination wedding. This kind of wedding makes for a small select group of people to join in your joy. If you are an introvert, this would be more your style.
