Destination weddings are amazing! If you’ve been dreaming of tying the knot surrounded by magnificent landscapes, sandy beaches, and gorgeous sunsets, then a destination wedding is your thing. Not only will you get married in an exotic location, but you can also take advantage of this trip for an extravagant honeymoon! 

Even when you can afford it, it can be a bit annoying to hear that your great grand uncle Peter’s grandson is also planning on attending your destination wedding. This is because destination weddings are a lot more special than regular weddings and you most likely want to use the opportunity to spend time with the people most dear to you. There is also the fact that the thought of a large-scale wedding can be overwhelming. More and more couples are opting for an intimate wedding – a smaller and more personalized celebration with their closest friends and family. 

Every couple pictures their dream wedding differently. If yours sees just you and your significant other together in a romantic destination, then this is what you should opt for! Here at, we offer you a plethora of ceremony venues choices for your dream intimate wedding abroad. 

From adults-only exclusive hotels to town halls, you can decide on the perfect venue by browsing through for a directory of popular wedding venues, checking Real-Time Availability and booking your preferred venue online Instantly! So, are there any other reasons why having a smaller destination wedding is attractive? We’ve listed some below.

  • Cost

Well, the price is an obvious plus when it comes to smaller destination weddings. The lesser the number of people that you have to cater to at your wedding, the less money you’ll have to spend. When you’re talking about just the two of you, the cost becomes even less.

  • Shorter Planning Time

Everything from finding the right venue for your intimate destination wedding to your event’s organization will be quicker with your smaller and intimate wedding.
