Does the idea of a romantic wedding on the beach sound just too good to be true? Well think again, destination weddings are not just for the filthy rich anymore. Here are a few thoughts to consider that tilt the scales in favor of that Caribbean getaway.

First, they are cost effective. These weddings are more intimate with a few close family members in attendance. You'll save bags of money on catering and venues. With weddings costs skyrocketing, saving $10,000 - $50,000 or more on a traditional wedding more than covers the cost of those plane tickets.

Your stress level will be much lower on a Caribbean beach. Having a smaller wedding means less to worry about. You won't have to listen to Bridesmaid's complain about their dresses. No Groomsman wearing white socks. "Simple" means less family drama.

Destination Weddings have a built-in Honeymoon also with your closest friends & family. Make sure after the ceremony you take some time to get away from the crowd and spend some time exploring, seeing the sites, or just relaxing on the beach with your toes in the sand.

These weddings make memories that last forever, its no surprise they're becoming more popular. Breaking the routine of a common wedding can be very memorable. With a little planning, it certain won't break the bank account either.
