New York, NY (August 17, 2017) – Your wedding day will be one of the most important and memorable days of your life, and plenty of thought goes into how to make it a celebration that reflects you, as a couple. Before deciding on a color scheme and wedding favors, there is a larger question to tackle: Where should we have the wedding? Today’s couples aren’t limited to just the traditional choices of your hometown or the city where you’re currently living—the whole world is a potential wedding venue. But what’s the right sort of wedding for you? Vacation (www.vacation.com), a new travel site designed to help people plan their best getaways, provides a fun and interactive quiz called “Is A Destination Wedding Right For You?” (http://bit.ly/2f69hb2) to help you easily identify the place to share your vows.
“Destination weddings have become more and more popular with couples for a variety of reasons. It can be a great way of getting your friends and family together in a fun location to soak up the sun or experience a new culture,” said Vacation’s Brian Hegarty. “Many couples love the idea of having a multi-day celebration with those they’re closest to, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. There are lots of factors to consider before deciding on a destination wedding, and Vacation’s quiz can help bridal couples get a better sense of their wedding style, in order to choose a location.”
In 2015, over 2.2 million people got married*, and in 2016, The Knot estimated that 20% of weddings were destination weddings. Clearly, destination weddings are no longer for only the rich and famous who can afford to rent an entire tropical isle—they’re for everyone. So, are you a beach lover? Have you always dreamed of getting married in an iconic European city like Rome or Paris? Or are you thinking about somewhere slightly different and farther away from home, but not too far – like a beautiful resort or even a destination like a western dude ranch? From Napa Valley to Nantucket, to Naples, the domestic opportunities are endless, as well.
Let’s first find out, if a destination wedding right for you. Vacation’s quiz (http://bit.ly/2f69hb2) is a quick, simple way to evaluate what’s really important on your wedding day. The quiz covers topics like:
- Do you want lots of guests or an intimate party?
- Where are your guests traveling from?
- How would you and your soon-to-be-spouse describe yourselves as a couple?
- What does your registry look like?
- What kinds of things are you pinning to your wedding Pinterest board?
Using the information you provide, Vacation lets you know if a far-flung international destination wedding is ideal, a wedding of your dreams with a mini-vacation for all of your loved ones is the perfect choice, or if your guest list and ideas suggest that a local, more traditional wedding would be perfect.
“At Vacation, we want to help couples in their search, find the perfect place to get married, and it’s OK if your dream wedding isn’t a destination wedding,” Hegarty added. “There’s a lot to be said about being married close to where you live, and having a more traditional wedding day. But for couples who dream of marrying in a faraway place, we’re happy to help them think about what they want, and how they might achieve it. And a destination wedding could be a way to combine a honeymoon with a cost-effective wedding: a destination wedding typically costs $17,000 as compared to the $32,600 price for a traditional wedding. Vacation provides lots of ideas for specific destinations, as well as honeymoon advice for couples. Either way, thinking about what kind of wedding you want can lead to a memorable special day.”
