Advantages And Disadvantages Of Getting Married In Dominica

Whether you want to get married in Dominica or anywhere else that is far away from your home, there are certain advantages and disadvantages of doing so. It is important to know about both the good and the bad so that you can make a decision. Remember, your wedding will be remembered by you and everyone else for a long time, so you want it to be great.

Complete Packages

Cruises and resorts will typically offer a full package deal for you, with complimentary services. In many cases, everything is taken care of, including the license, officiate, cake, catering and more. Many times, a wedding consultant is also available, whom you can call from your location to ensure everything is right on the big day.

Long Distance/Red Tape

One problem could include the long distance or legal issues. Many times, foreign countries have specific rules about marriage licenses and times that a wedding can take place. Knowing about those rules ahead of time can be life-saving, so consult with someone who understands the rules or go through a cruise line or resort that offers these services.

Avoid Stress

Part of the stress associated with getting married is in all the details that you have to plan yourself. This can include the cake, finding a reception hall, finding a church, making/buying decorations, throwing showers and parties and much more. Most of that will already be taken care of. Another benefit is that you can invite only those that you want to attend without hurting others’ feelings.

Not Being There

One caveat is that some of your friends or family won’t make it to the destination wedding. They are typically required to pay for their travel arrangements, and some cannot afford the expense or can’t take off work. Talk with the people you want to be there to ensure they can make it, so you don’t get upset.

Save Money

You can save a lot of money by having a destination wedding because you don’t have to invite as many people and may find great discounts like nowhere else. However, etiquette usually states that the bride and groom pay for food, expenses and hotel rooms for the guests though guests pay for airfare to and from the destination.

Getting married in Dominica offers a certain romance, but there can be drawbacks to any option you choose. Make sure you focus on both areas first. Once you’ve decided, Dreamy Weddings to book a cruise or find out about packages available.
