Every head turns as the familiar “Here Comes the Bride” refrain signals the moment everyone has been waiting for: the bride’s arrival. But look around. Instead of a stuffy ballroom that costs a fortune, where wedding guests must spring for formal clothing and pricey hotel rooms, you and your fiancé can host a private island wedding in the Caribbean, renting the entire property for your affair.
Sound far-fetched, too expensive, and extravagant? Not to everyone, say New York Times reporters who discovered that private destination weddings – where the only guests on a property are friends and family of the couple – are becoming more commonplace. In fact, “more couples [are] looking to create a safer travel experience for their guests,” according to the article.
Why are couples looking into what was once thought to be an option available only to the wealthy? Because it’s a rare opportunity to create a private, customized affair. Bride Alison Greer summed up her experience perfectly for the Times when talked about her private island wedding, “There is no outside noise, and every face you see is someone you love.”
