Why is Better a Destination Wedding than a Traditional Wedding

Are you thinking about getting married at the Riviera Maya and having a romantic destination wedding? Would you like to have an Instagram-style wedding with blue skies and a turquoise sea? Having a destination wedding can save you a lot of money and be much more special and romantic than a traditional one in your boring local church (no offence). The destination weddings are usually more intimate and do not cost as much, since hotels often offer you cheap packages, or even if you prefer go to low cost wedding, you can also rent a nice restaurant near the beach and have the wedding of your dreams. If you take a look at weddingwire or Bodas.com you will see that the way in which couples get married now has evolved from being a traditional wedding to a "Boho" (bohemian) wedding. Romantic, inspired by nature, intimate and full of activities of several days with your close friends and family. You would literally be celebrating your wedding at the same time you are enjoying your Honeymoon. What more can you ask?

That way you save yourself the expense of a super expensive Church, an expensive event room and invite hundreds of guests and distant relatives that you may not even know.

Imagine a wedding in a heavenly place in which one night before the wedding day your family and close friends come together for dinner and have a pre-celebration, the next day (the day of the wedding) your guests relax in the pool while you are getting ready taking an aphrodisiac juice. Then you marry outdoors having the most beautiful sunset you can imagine. That is not offered by a local party hall. But there is more, in the following days after the wedding all together friends and families can do activities together like, do Snorkel, visit some ruins, fishing, take a boat trip, etc. Obviously that already on behalf of each guest. It's like having a vacation with the people you love the most.
