All Inclusive Destination Weddings

An all inclusive wedding is a wedding where
everything is included. Your wedding site,the officiant,ceremony, flowers, cake, reception,travel, room, food, alcohol, entertainment,tips, taxes and transfers from the airport to the hotel. You also have the services of a wedding coordinator to make the wedding flawless.

You need only to make the decisions regarding the destination site, set the date, get a passport if traveling outside of the USA, apply for the marriage license, pack and travel. And they can help all your guests get there and arrange their accommodations. They'll even steam or press your wedding dress when you arrive.

Most all inclusive wedding sites are in Mexico, Hawaii and in the Caribbean.

The benefits are that everything is done for you. You don't have the stress of planning a wedding. The next big plus: after the ceremony, you are on your honeymoon. No need to repack andtravel, the honeymoon starts instantly.

Since everything is paid as a package, there are no additional expenses. You can dine at any of the restaurants on the property or other resorts that have exchange privileges. Or you can stay in your room and dine on room service. You can dance the night away, watch the nightly entertainment or relax in your room. You can lounge at the pool or at the beach. You can golf, take part in beach activities, games and barbeques, or do nothing at all but chill. All alcohol is included, some resorts will even supply cigarettes.

The all inclusive resorts are popular as destination wedding spots and also for honeymoons. Many couples return on their anniversary for a vacation. Your guests have so many activities to enjoy, they won't bother you and most resorts will place you away from your guests so you get the privacy you want when you want. Your wedding party and guests will probably only stay for the weekend.

Dream Honeymoons; Destination Weddings at Sandals Resorts!

All-Inclusive Caribbean Vacations

How easy is it to have all the details taken care of for you? No stress, little fuss, all fun! Our brides have raved about the all inclusive resorts of Sandals and the Riu resorts in Mexico. Happy planning!

Get Married In The Serenity of Gatlinburg, TN

I was surprised to find out that Gatlinburg
Tennessee was such a hot spot for destination
weddings. Mountain lovers choose it for its
location in the Smoky Mountains. Cool mountain
air, quiet serenity, mountain streams make it
the perfect location to have your wedding.
Not everyone is a beach person, but if you
want to marry next to a bubbling stream,
Gatlinburg can make it happen.

You can rent hotels, chalets or cabins.
The cabins aren't what you are thinking,
while they may have rustic cabin look on the
outside, the insides are amazing.
They are modern, comfortable and quite
plush. They sport hot tubs, game rooms
and pool tables. Renting a chalet for your
wedding is a great way for a family
get together and celebration. You can
even get married in the chalet and have
your reception there.

You can get married in your cabin, chalet,
chapel, church or outdoors. Weddings start
at the budget price of $90, not including
your marriage license.

You are near Dollywood, great shopping,
quaint shops and great food. You can
hike or fish or sit in your private hot tub.
In the winter you can ski and warm up
in front of the fireplace in your chalet.
You can relax or take part in the local action.
And there are plenty of activities for your
guests to enjoy.

Or contact the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce for
information on lodging, chalets and things to do.

Just Married Flip Flops on Sale

On Sale at The Knot Wedding Shop

I came across these cute just married flip
flops on sale for an outrageous $2.99 a pair
at the Knot. These are so cute for beach
weddings. Many couples slip them on after
the ceremony to leave a trail if "just married"
on the sand and have the photographer
take pics of their vows on the sand.

They can be worn on the honeymoon and
you can gift your wedding party with these
to wear during the beach ceremony.
They are fun, cute and the perfect touch
for a beach wedding. Not long ago, these
same flip flops were nearly twenty dollars
in bridal boutiques. This is a real
deal! Are you frugal brides listening?
Your guy will love them, too.
Everyone can use another
pair of flip flops, go for it!
