Wedding Around The World

Not too long ago most all Destination weddings were little more than polite way of saying "eloping!".

Well it has come a long way, and couples today go a lot longer way away, as well! As far as ceremonies on the tundra of the Arctic, to the jungles on the equator, to the Great Barrier Reef and everywhere in between. You can find people experiencing destination weddings anywhere.

I guess there still are young couples that do elope, running away, against the wishes of their families for whatever reasons. But the majority of couples that now runaway to marry, do it with at least their families knowledge and blessings and often with their family all present.

Today's destination wedding couples often have been together for years and they see no need to invite hundreds of people to a personal and intimate occasion in their life, which in their mind best is best for only those directly involved. Choosing not to "host an event" for distant family and little known past family friends and the uninvited but instead leave all that stress behind and share their wedding with really special people in their life, be it family and friends or just keep it to the two of themselves.
