People love to complain about the destination wedding. It’s too expensive; it’s too far to travel; it’s asking too much of our delicate schedules and sensibilities. To these unadventurous naysayers, we say wah, wah, wake up and smell the bacon-wrapped fresh scallops, and open your eyes to the clear beach-scented fact that destination weddings are the BEST kind of weddings.
No need to make dinner reservations, figure out where to go, or make plans, it’s all done for you, and paid for, fella. When else can you go on a vacation where someone else picks up the meals and drinks? Yeah, a country club wedding in Connecticut can be oh so (yawn) pleasant, but a beach wedding in the tropics is oh so awesome. Let us count the reasons why.
