A lot of couples these days opt for a destination wedding for various reasons; climate (often warmer), less stress with planning (as lots of destinations offer a wedding planning service) and sometimes to keep the wedding to a limited size. Even when going away to a different destination for your wedding, you can keep it as formal or as casual as you wish. Make sure to do enough research to find out that your destination will offer you and your guest what you are looking for from hotels and accommodation to transportation and activities. Look for what the destination resort has to offer to accommodate your wedding ceremony and reception. Many hotels and destination resorts that specialize in weddings will offer a wedding planning service and be able to assist you to make sure that all the details are taken care of even before you arrive at the wedding location. You can often decide how much involvement you want in the details such as picking the menu, selecting your wedding flowers, wedding cake options etc. When it comes down to it though it is all about how you want to make of your wedding day at your new chosen destination. One of the perks of having a destination wedding is that it might prove to be a lot cheaper for you, the wedding planners for a number of reasons. First off, not as many people are likely to attend, as they will have to spend a lot of money to make the trip. Secondly, if you go to an all-inclusive type resort, the drinks are free, so there is no need worrying about the expensive bar tab at the end of the night. Having a destination wedding can also mean that you do not have to go through the difficult task of trying to make the wedding invite list. Since you are less likely to be limited on numbers, depending on your resort or hotel, you can invite everyone you know! This can also be viewed as a negative thing, as destination weddings can be quite expensive for your wedding guests and you do not want to make all your friends and family feel obligated to attend you wedding if it is very expensive. Then of course there is always the Las Vegas destination wedding!
Selecting your wedding party This is the specially selected group of close friends and family that has been asked to join the wedding couple at the altar. The wedding party also often gets to join the couple at the head table for dinner, depending on the family or cultural traditions as well as the number of people in the wedding party. There is no set rule of the number of people you need, things to remember when deciding. It is best to have an even number of bridesmaids and groomsman. It is a good idea to include your siblings, they are special and important people in your lives and would be honored to be a part of your selected wedding party. When selecting your friends, choose close and reliable friends and remember, they will be in your wedding photos too. A good tip from experience, if you are having a tough time deciding between two people, pick someone close to where you live, as you might need their help and it will be a lot easier trying to coordinate with them.

Planning a wedding is stressful. So if you're not happy with the dress she picked out or the time the bridal shower starts or how another one of the bridesmaids is treating you, chat about it with the maid of honor or another member of the bridal party. Don't bother the bride with that nonsense.
