One of the most exciting parts of planning for our wedding was picking the destination. These days, destination weddings and honeymoons are taking place in a variety of locations, so it’s important to pick a location you will love. The laid-back atmosphere of a beach resort and the warm weather of the Caribbean really called to us.
Once we knew the type of location we were looking for, we considered cost, convenience and travel times to narrow down our location search. I like to fully research everything before I do anything so I was able to narrow down a location by finding information on 1) when the best times to travel to each location were, by considering weather + popular travel times, 2) how convenient travel to that location would be for our guests, by considering travel time + airport connections and 3) which locations really gave us the most bang for our buck.
I loved Turks & Caicos, but it wasn’t the most cost-efficient choice for our guests. Belize was another one of our top choices but meant long flight times and a long drive from the airport. We settled on Mexico because there were so many resort choices with a variety of amenities for the cost – and it couldn’t be more perfect for our wedding group!
