Destination weddings do not have to cost more and could even cost less, than hosting the same party at home (depending on where you live, of course).
Still, there are extra expenses you'll need to factor in for any wedding, including destination weddings.
1. Welcome bags for guests
2. Outside activities for your guests,
if they arrive days early.
3. Travel costs for you and your immediate families (including those planning trips, not just the wedding weekend).
4. If you can't find a wedding vendor that is local, you may have to bring in your Minister, a Photographer or have a Wedding Cake, shipped or the baker brings it themselves. This travel expense is your responsibility, so make a budget that’s realistic and factors in all of these extra costs.
