Viva Destination Weddings and Travel
This is a really hard one to answer because there are a lot of variations.Giving you resorts and prices for every destination is a lot of work, so it is better to find out what is important to you and find a place that fits your needs.
For instance if budget is the first and foremost thing, then you could do something like Bali, which is cheap and cheerful for your guests but more expensive for the weddings and also difficult to do legally, and also not scenically easy, as the cheapest places are usually in the mass tourist areas that are not private or intimate. If you want to not be resort bound, then maybe Thailand or Cook Islands depending on your budget. If you want guests to be able to come for a few days/long weekend then Fiji or Vanuatu are by far the easiest and cheapest from that point of view, shorter flights etc. If you want white sand beaches then Fiji or Vanuatu are not good in the cheaper lead-in resorts, and you need to go out to other islands etc to get that, so logistically it is a little more to consider.
Also the make-up of your party is important, if you have a lot of little kids then I wouldn’t do Asia, but the Pacific is great with kids, shorter flights, brilliant kids clubs etc, whereas if you are all adults, then it changes that perspective.
So as you can see it isn't just a case of a destination and a price point. There is a lot of emotion riding on a destination wedding. If we sent you somewhere that was not right for you, it could potentially ruin your big day, so this is why we ask for more information, so we can give you recommendations of places that suit your ideal wedding, your budget and your guests needs too.
The best thing is to let me know the top 3 things that are of utmost importance and the rough breakdown of guests etc, and we can work from there.
Hope that helps!
