December is the month of proposals. If you were one of the lucky-in-love couples who asked or got asked and said yes, congratulations! That magical moment will stay with you for a lifetime, and you’ve got plenty more magical moments ahead.
After the proposal, planning time begins, and goodness is there plenty to plan! The wedding, the rehearsal dinner, the bridal shower, the bachelor/ette parties, need we say more? Naturally you’ll have friends, family, and a wedding planner to help out with each of those events, so let’s get down to the one event that involves just you and your fiancé – the honeymoon.
Roses are red, violets are blue, and an escape to Anguilla is the right choice for you. Escape the winter, the chaos, and the commercialism. For the most romantic Valentine’s Day this year, bring the focus back to the two of you. Shut out the rest of the world for a few days, weeks, or months as you release deeper into relaxation and lovers bliss on the small, quaint, and unbelievably romantic Caribbean island of Anguilla.
Soft and flattering sunlight, dazzling sunsets, not needing to invite as many guests, and a chance to experience a new culture – any one or more of these could be your reason for desiring a destination wedding. Destination weddings are magnificent events, and will certainly leave lasting memories for you and your guests. Though destination weddings are desired by many couples, often times many of them don’t actually go through with them.
Planning any wedding involves time, effort, and money, and for some folks, planning a wedding in a foreign country seems overwhelmingly complicated. Disclaimer – it actually isn’t overwhelming or even complicated if you follow a few best practices, which we’ll delve into shortly. Many couples begin to get cold feet as they consider the issue of the legality of a marriage in a foreign country, transportation to the destination, try to figure out the best season for the destination, determine if they’re allowed to use outside vendors, etc. etc. Those are all perfectly reasonable concerns to have, and if it’s your dream to be married on a beach on an exotic island – don’t let worry over logistics prevent you from seeing your dream come true!
