Covid-19 has secured all camping gear and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. But what are couples meant to do? Many have had enough of postponing or changing their plans and would much rather stick to the original idea of going abroad and have their much desired destination wedding.
An intimate destination wedding is what many are considering these days. Simply a wedding away from home with 10 people or less as your witnesses. (And that can include in-state, for those who don’t want to fly.)
This is the biggest decision you will make cost-wise. Think about where your money will go the farthest.
Your first decision is domestic vs international. You might be happy to learn an international destination micro wedding can actually end up being cheaper, even much cheaper than domestic. It automatically pulls the guest list way down which is what you might wanted to do in the first place. The money you spend on an international plane ticket will pale in comparison to the cost of a local wedding reception with a healthy guest list anywhere.
We are predicting that elopements are here to stay throughout 2021 — and possibly even the start of 2022. If you’re considering an elopement or an intimate wedding during these unprecedented times consider going for the countries with minimal cases, with better flight connections and possibly those who demand presenting a negative Covid test on arrival. We are also aware from last year’s experience that the climate helps determine the number of positive cases along with other measures. Hence opting for a warmer country would benefit you at this time.
