Imagine waking up at dawn to watch the sunrise as it reflects against the most beautiful blue ocean you've even seen, the smell of the fresh salty air, and white sand that runs for miles just waiting for you.
Sounds nice right? Well to make it even better, imagine that you're about to marry the love of your life on that very day, surrounded by the people who are most important to you.
Destination weddings are beyond romantic and are one of the most unforgettable ways to celebrate. Intimate and filled with moments and stories that will be told for decades to come, you and your guests will cherish the trip forever. However, with everything there is to love about a wedding in paradise, there are also a ton of expenses of plans involved.
Most of us can't afford to fly and accommodate our guests, so you're asking a lot of your friends and family to be there. That being said, we think it's 100% worth it and with enough notice, most people are honoured and excited to be invited. You'll just want to make sure that each and every person who makes the trip knows just how much you appreciate them being there. Of course you'll thank them all in person, but your wedding favors are a great opportunity to give them a little extra token of appreciation from the heart.
