Why a Destination Wedding?
More and more couples are discovering the allure of destination weddings, honeymoons and vow renewals for a variety of reasons:
There are so many exciting and romantic options for where and how you celebrate your special day. With options to accommodate every budget, virtually every size of wedding and, of course, your individual taste:
• Sunny tropical beaches in Mexico & the Caribbean
• Lavish luxury ocean and river cruise ships
• Old world charm of Europe – cathedrals, castles, historic sites
• Much more
Let your imagination run wild. If you can dream it, a Club Voyages destination wedding specialist can help you live it!
Value you’ll love
The average destination wedding can cost less than $5,000 for the bride and groom. Compare that with the $25,000 most couples spend for a wedding at home. Great group rates, along with all kinds of extras, upgrades and discounts are just some of the ways Club Voyages can help you stretch your wedding budget further.
Anytime, anywhere, anyone
Why limit yourself to venues available close to home that may be booked months in advance, or only accommodate a limited number of guests? And why plan around those few months a year of good weather? Many destinations are ideal for your wedding and boast beautiful weather year-round, where you can celebrate and enjoy outside. Invite as many friends and family as you like – a Club Voyages specialist can happily accommodate any size guest list!
Something for everyone
Your wedding is your special day, and that includes your guests, friends and family – many of whom may have special needs and requirements. A Club Voyages specialist can help you plan and include everything in your destination wedding itinerary, with activities and amenities designed to suit everyone in your party. There are also many options for ethnic, interfaith and same-sex marriage packages. Just ask!
With your ceremony and celebrations behind you, and your guests destined for home, take the time to relax and enjoy. Talk to your Club Voyages specialist about staying on an extra week or more. Or perhaps even journey to another destination. It’s like having a honeymoon built right in!
A lot goes into organizing any wedding. A Club Voyages destination wedding specialist can take a lot of the work out of planning your big day. They take care of everything so you can relax!
