Benefits of a Large Destination Wedding Group

Need a small wedding for less than 20 guests? Learn More Details About Weddings

When you think of ‘wedding,’ your mind automatically flashes to beautiful white gowns, elegant atmospheres, and romantic first kisses as brand new spouses.

While all of that is wonderful, the truth of the matter is that weddings also involve a great deal of planning and management. 

Not only will you pay more for a typical local wedding than for a destination wedding, but all of the details, organization, and arrangements fall heavily on your shoulders!

And if you’re planning on inviting more than 100 guests to your wedding? Talk about a logistical nightmare!

Here’s the thing about a destination wedding, though. Not only is Destify here to offer our no-fee services to plan the destination wedding of your dreams, but we’re also here to tell you that a large wedding group comes with many benefits!

Let’s look at the benefits of a large destination wedding group and some of the best all-inclusive resorts for large groups!

Advantages of Destination Weddings with 50+ Guests

Opting for a destination wedding with 50 guests or more has many advantages over holding a more traditional ceremony with a large group.

Let’s start with the soon-to-be-newlyweds. More than anything, destination weddings make one of the most romantic backdrops in the world. 

The flawless weather, the tropical breezes, the lapping blue waters against the white sands – it doesn’t get much more fairy-tale intimate than that.

And since destination weddings double as honeymoons, that passionate and amorous aura carries on from the ceremony to the mornings spent in the sunshine.

Beyond the romance, destination weddings are just easier. Destify’s dedicated wedding experts and your chosen resort’s enthusiastic staff of wedding planners will take care of all of the planning and coordinating for you and your guests.

You can spend the morning of your wedding sipping mimosas by the pool, knowing that every detail of your special day has been taken care of. 

As well, all-inclusive resorts for large groups will guarantee that every want and need of your wedding group will be satisfied. 

With unlimited food, open bars, sophisticated suites, and fun activities happening every day at the resort, each and every one of your friends and family will relish their time in paradise. 

Bigger Group, Bigger Perks

Bigger is undoubtedly better for destination weddings. 

When it comes to all-inclusive resorts, it’s a ‘you scratch our back, we’ll scratch yours’ scenario. 

Couples that bring along more business and more guests receive benefits and amenities from our resort partners. 

Free wedding packages, upgraded suites, complimentary cocktail hours, excursions, and much more are offered to large groups who book their weddings at our all-inclusive resort partners!
