Wed On An Idyllic Tropical Isle

Nov 01, 2019

The dream of tying the knot on an idyllic tropical isle has been the desire of many a soon-to-be-wed couple. The options are abundant within the Southeast Asian region, and affordable air travel has certainly been a catalyst for the growth of the destination wedding market. Many of these couples however often overlook the possibilities in our very own backyard, so to speak. Indeed, the realisation of a beach wedding for instance is very much possible.

Consider this :

  • An island within the archipelago of the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park.
  • Just a 20-minute boat ride from Mersing, Johor.
  • A private beachfront resort.
  • White, sun-baked sand.
  • An azure sea.
  • The warm waters of the South China Sea.
  • Scenic surrounds that pay homage to nature.

Now, these are certainly incentives to contemplate planning for a wedding where family and friends get to celebrate with you over a weekend, on an island getaway where laid-back celebrations and the opportunity of personal interactions take precedence.

So, to get the ball rolling :

  • Do some research and get in touch with the events team at the resort.
  • Run the idea by your families and appointed wedding planner.
  • Work out a budget and request for a quote from the resort.
