Not to be confused with an elopement, a destination wedding is one in which a wedding is hosted, often in a vacation-like setting, at a location to which most of the invited guests must travel and often stay for several days. This could be a beach ceremony in the tropics, a lavish event in a metropolitan resort, or a simple ceremony at the home of a geographically distant friend or relative. During the recession of 2009, destination weddings continued to see growth compared to traditional weddings, as the typically smaller size results in lower costs.
Famous quotes containing the words wedding and/or destination:
“Men may conseile a womman to be oon,
But conseiling nis no comandement.
He putte it in oure owene juggement.
For hadde God comanded maidenhede,
Thanne hadde he dampned wedding with the deede;”
—Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?1400)
“If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. Ones destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
