New Wedding Traditions in the Sun, Sea, and Sand
Richmond, BC - May 27, 2010 - Throwing tradition to the wind, many couples are opting out of a classic ceremony and reception in their hometown in favour of a simple and fun destination wedding. Judging from an analysis of 2010 wedding trends, the top location for these weddings is the Caribbean, which is known for its high quality service and well-organized, tailored weddings.
Destination Weddings Are Affordable
Wherever the big day is held, whether at a beachside restaurant or at the bottom of a ski hill, the culture of the destination is most often infused into the details of the wedding. Local food choices are amalgamated into the dishes and traditional wedding customs and design elements are mixed in for a truly unique experience. Since the prices of destination wedding dresses tend to be more affordable, many brides are embracing the idea of packing two dresses into their carry-on luggage - one for the ceremony and another to wear as they dance the night away, under a tropical sunset.
Technology Brings Destination Wedding Home
And what if the idea of partaking in the festivities unfortunately exceeds a guest's budget? Thanks to the recent popularity of high-tech gadgets, they won't have to miss out on the tearful vows or even the best man's speech! New "Tweets of Honour" are now being added to the wedding party - a designated person who is responsible for relaying every last detail of the wedding to anyone who wants a play by play of what they're missing.
