If marriage is the biggest adventure of all, why not start your journey together with the trip of a lifetime? For those couples with a sense of wanderlust and a desire for a simpler affair, a combined destination wedding and honeymoon can be just the ticket. The catch? Planning a wedding is hard enough without being on another continent, which is why these brides tapped into the expertise of Ann Petronio, of Annie’s Escapes Custom Travel Planning.
“When a couple chooses to have a destintation wedding, it is often because they want to avoid the stress of a big wedding here at home. But then they find out that planning a wedding from afar can be even more stressful! I always suggest that they work with a travel professional to handle all of the logistics and lean on the on-site wedding planner to handle all of the event details…Then, if there’s one key detail that means the most to them, consider bringing your trusted local professional along for the trip. It may be well worth the cost of paying for their travel!” – Ann Petronio
