Destination weddings have become extremely popular over the past years. With thousands of romantic travel destinations all over the world, couples have found a great way to combine travel, wedding and honeymoon at once. What better way to tie the knot than to do it in an unforgettable and exotic vacation hotspot.
Known for its absolutely marvelous and stunning beaches, Bora Bora is one of the most sought after destination wedding locations in the world. This article will give you every reason why you should get married in this fantasy island, important things you need to know about destination weddings and different All Inclusive Wedding Packages you can avail in Bora Bora.
Average Cost of Destination Weddings
A destination wedding in Bora Bora may be a dream-come-true for you and your partner, but maybe you’re hindered by the thought of the possible cost. Contrary to what most people believe, destination weddings don’t necessarily have to be very expensive. As a matter of fact, with the right planning, it can be as affordable (even cheaper), as any traditional wedding.
According to studies, if you are planning to invite 150 guests, the estimated cost of a regular formal wedding is approximately $30,000, or $200/guest. For a regular destination wedding, for 100 guests, this is approximately $17,000, or $170/guest.
Destination weddings, in general, costs about 40% lesser compared to traditional weddings. Why so? This is mainly because numerous wedding destinations offer special deals, like All Inclusive Wedding Packages. Aside from this, only fewer guests can be expected to attend destination weddings, mainly because of conflict of schedule reasons.
· Expenses for the Guests
With a destination wedding, guests are expected to shoulder their own expenses for airfare, accommodations and meals. However, etiquette recommends that the couple shoulder part of the wedding party’s expenses, like meals or accommodation.
When it comes to destination weddings, couples are strongly advised to go for a honeymoon registry instead of a gift registry. This will also help compensate the expenses on accommodation and transportation. If guests plan to give gifts, inform them ahead to have the gifts delivered to your home address to save you the hassle of added baggage on your way back home.
