Hey, butterflies I hope you are doing well in this holiday period, enjoying with yours!

Days go by and are not the same, trends come and go according to trends and actuality, however certain mood comes and seems ephemeral for so long and settle in and become usual. It’s the destination wedding case!

But what is a destination wedding?

Your international butterfly tells you more!

Let’s say that you live in New York, USA, but you come from Nice in France, you may decide for family reasons to return to France and get married there, on the French Riviera.

You are a wine lover, and you live in France, far from a wine region, you choose to get married in a beautiful castle in Bordeaux.

You’ve always dreamed of discovering Africa, but you never had the opportunity to go there and you decide to kill two birds with one stone and going to get married in Zanzibar for example…

This is destination wedding, getting married somewhere different from where you live for whatever reason. The destination chosen is often leaded by wishes, family or emotional ties or memories.

This type of wedding appeared as a fad a few years ago by some privileged few and has since taken hold and democratized to our great happiness. The fact is that our consumption behaviors which have evolved, the explosions of socials, which open the doors to the world at our fingertips.

Travel has become a usual habit; it’s no longer just reserved for summer vacations or business trips. The desire to touch on other customs, landscapes that we see through networks, TV and it already seem familiar to us, has been lifted by several veils, such as the fear of the unknown.

In addition, planning a wedding is no longer a simple formality, it is the deep expression of 2 people who want to celebrate their love at the height of their success, or their vision of life and they want it to be special, and unique, not the same one of the neighbors.

Here is some food for thought on destination wedding

So, are you more a domestic wedding team (in the town where I live)? or rather destination wedding team?

I will be happy to discuss your upcoming project with you!

Rich in her history and culture, the Charente is full of places tinged with her essence, ideal for sumptuous weddings worthy of castle life.
