The Beach Or The Highlands

Feb 01, 2020

When soon-to-be-wed couples contemplate getting away from the city and organising their wedding celebrations at a location a bit further from where they live, the options, particularly in our country, tend to either be a wedding by the sea on a beautiful stretch of beach or perhaps an exchange of vows in the cool climate of the highlands. Planning for these destination weddings entail some work, but the results are often rewarding, celebrations that are more personal and exclusive in nature, allowing the couple to spend more time with their guests, whilst also providing the latter with the opportunity of a little holiday away from the hustle and bustle of urban centres where most live in.

As destination weddings involved logistics of travel and applying for some time off from work, start your planning early :

  • Are you a beach lover or do you prefer the cooler weather in the highlands?
  • Resorts that are slightly off-the-beaten-track offer more exclusivity and privacy.
  • Negotiate preferential room rates so that your family and guests can also stay at the resort where you will be getting married at.
