Since years, marriage has been a major issue of an individual’s life, which does not only relate to the person getting married but also his family. Love or arranged? These are the only options with which we move forward towards the crucial decision. Once this phase passes, comes the question of deciding the wedding date. What would be the best time? Some choose it to do it early while some take their own time. Finally, the venue!! Where would I like to have y wedding? So,we can classify a marriage ceremony into two categories- Destination Wedding & Local Wedding.

Preferences for the location vary with person to person, depending on their financial status and convenience. But which is actually better than the other one? Lets put some light on it and have a look at few aspects of both that make them stand at different positions.

Budget in Wedding:

Consider these factors while planning for a destination wedding.You would have to shell out a fortune to have a grand marriage ceremony to woo your guests. Tickets, accommodation, food and other miscellaneous expenses,etc. would be tough on your pocket.

Local marriage are at the safer side in respects of travelling and accommodations. You know how to get perfect vendors and how to get discounts from them. Even the rates of various things vary place to place and probably you would be good at bargaining too!

Wedding Guest list:

Holding a destination wedding is a best way to cut out the ones whom you dont want to attend your wedding. Some of them might cancel coming at the place by themselves and some of them you could cancel from inviting. After all, travelling so far and staying there for long, your dearest ones only could consider it.

Talking about a typical Indian marriage, actual visitors at your wedding would cross your guest list. You should prepare yourself to welcome more number of guests than you have calculated while planning. This could be one of the drawbacks of having it in your residential town.

Honeymoon destination:

What if the destination of your wedding be the same where you will decide to go for honeymoon? This could fulfill both the requirements and preferably you could wait at the location for few more days after your marriage ceremony.

Going for honeymoon after the hectic wedding celebration could be a tedious job for some. It becomes better to hold on for some days post marriage before you plan on going for a long trip.
