7 Reasons Why A Destination Wedding Is Less Stressful Than A Local Wedding


It’s the happiest day of your life, and it can also be one of the most stressful. Having a great wedding team on your side can help alleviate that stress, but when you add a beautiful destination, you have the perfect equation for a magical day.

Here are 7 reasons a destination wedding is less stressful than a local wedding.

1.  You Still Get To Use A Local Wedding Planner

When you get married locally you may feel you have seen too much of the city and area. You know all the ins and outs and it’s easy to feel underwhelmed by your options. You may be influenced by what you’ve seen others do and the weddings you’ve attended. With a destination wedding, it’s usually a new experience for everyone. Your destination may be a place you are not familiar with. With an experienced destination wedding planning team, there is no need to worry about what you don’t know because they will help you make the best decisions.

CM Events & Designs are wedding planners that allow you to put your trust in them with their clearly defined process.


2. Wedding Stress May Come From The People Involved

When you’re at home, you’re around everyone you know. This is great and contributes to the celebration, but the more people you know the more potential stress that comes your way. There are more people to accommodate and deal with. Local wedding planning can turn into a “too many cooks spoil the broth” situation as you’re getting input from all directions.

With a destination wedding the focus switches to enjoying the time with the people you have there. With a destination wedding the focus becomes more on everyone enjoying their time as opposed to them all trying to “contribute”.


3. A Destination Wedding Cuts Down On Too Many Choices

When you’re planning a local wedding, the amount of options for every detail become endless. It’s great to have different options from flowers to photography, but with all these resources come an endless amount of decisions.

With a destination wedding, the planners and venues do them all the time with their set teams, so it becomes a black and white situation making decisions much easier.


4. Your Focus Is Just On Hanging Out

With a destination wedding you’re on vacation while you’re getting married. It’s much easier to relax and enjoy your friends and family when you’re already in vacation mode. With a local wedding there are still all the distractions of everyday life that can cause you more stress.


5. Your Guests Get A Unique Experience

Local weddings tend to all be in the same type venues and they can become boring. CM Events & Designs provides full service planning an event design for weddings in Punta Cana, Mexico and across the Caribbean.  You can guarantee a unique wedding experience for your guests with different cultural vibes and more exotic cuisines.


6. You Get More Time

There seems to never be enough time to plan a wedding, but with a destination wedding you can plan things further in advance. You need to give your guests more time to prepare for a trip and this can extend the time you get to plan, which can reduce your stress.


7. You Don’t Have To Worry About F.O.L

F.O.L is fear of logistics and you need not worry about them when planning a destination wedding. Having your big day planned with your resort coordinator or event companies like CM Events & Design will take away all those logistical worries and allow you to start this new chapter in your lives on an adventurous note.
