Why Island Weddings Are Getting More Popular
There are several reasons which give rise to this trend. They include:
- A smaller guest list which means that those included are likely to be your closest friends and family.
These are the most meaningful people in your life.
You can plan some meaningful activities that you wouldn't plan if the wedding was a larger event.
For example, you might plan a small party night with those close friends in your hotel room, villa or cottage.
On the other hand, you may not! You may want an more intimate situation.
You can have your guest list as small as you like - you can even limit it to 2, 1, or none. Witnesses can easily be provided for you.
- Many brides like to have their weddings at the seaside. Island beach weddings provide the perfect locale for this.
- The Caribbean Islands add an exotic flavor to the proceedings.
