New Zealand is full of beautiful locations making it a popular choice for destination weddings and honeymoons.
For starters, there is the beautiful city of Auckland. Auckland is the largest and most populated urban area in all of New Zealand. You will be able to explore nearly all of the culture New Zealand has to offer in this tourist friendly city. Another possible destination in New Zealand is Queenstown. Unlike bustling Auckland, Queenstown is a complete resort community. You will find all of New Zealand's rest and relaxation in this beautiful location. For additional beauty, you can visit the Bay of Islands located on the northern tip of New Zealand. Here, you will discover great coastal events and recreation.
A destination wedding can be a much more affordable alternative to a traditional lavish wedding. Many places offer complete wedding packages which often includes an on-site wedding consultant to help you with all of the special details of your wedding.
Another great reason to have a destination wedding is the ability to have a smaller guest list. Instead of planning for hundreds of people you will have only close friends and family who are willing to make the trip out to your destination for your wedding.
Although a destination wedding is a more affordable option for the bride and groom, it does come at a higher cost to your guests. A small, intimate guest list will allow you to share your special day with the people who really mean the most to you.
Many couples who choose a destination wedding, also opt to combine their wedding location with their honeymoon dream. Get married in a stunning location, and then continue the celebrations in the same spot or enjoy the duration of your trip at a nearby resort.
