Every year, with the holidays comes the engagement season. These few months always see a peek in the number of marriage proposals. Once the excitement has dropped a bit (or not!) couples start pondering about the specifics: deciding on a wedding date, a place, the scale of their special event, and of course, wondering about the overall cost of a wedding. Home weddings have been the norm for a long time. Yet, destination weddings in Tahiti have emerged and become increasingly popular in recent years.
Most importantly, 2020 absolutely changed the way people see gatherings and events. As a matter of fact, what was once a curiosity has now become trendier than ever. With guests’ health and safety in mind and a priority, micro weddings have raised and shined. And you know that Tahiti elopements and micro weddings is what I love and specialize in, don’t you?
Destination Weddings In Tahiti Are Gaining In Popularity,
Do You Know Why?
If you are questioning the possibility of having a destination wedding in Tahiti – Moorea vs a traditional hometown wedding, you’re not alone.
Find out why more couples switch to Tahiti destination weddings nowadays.
1. You Do Not Want To Feed 200+ People At Your Wedding
To begin with, a destination wedding in Tahiti is perfect for you if you want to get married privately. In fact, getting married afar from home is the best way to get you the privacy you desire! With only your closest friends and relatives present, extended family or your parents’ relatives will understand why they did not make it to the guests’ list. Plus, you can always throw a home party when you return. You won’t have to worry about the venue-music-chairs-tables-food-décor-centerpieces-flowers-favors-et-cetera. All those are so much easier to plan in a smaller scale, whether it’s just you, or you and your close family, or even 30-40 people.
2. You Did Not Have A Vacation In A Long Time
… and let’s be honest, the cost of a traditional wedding might just turn this situation to one that lasts. Honeymooning in your wedding locale is a great way to explore the area even more – and what better destination to get married and spend a honeymoon (a wedding-moon!) than the Islands of Tahiti? Most of my couples choose to marry in Moorea, Tahiti’s sister island, and then to fly to Bora Bora for their honeymoon. That’s two trips in one.
3. You Do Not Want To Turn Into Bridezilla | Groomzilla-You
Moreover, destination weddings in Tahiti help couples get away from the insanity that usually results from wedding planning pressure. Not only that but also the tendency from people around them to give unsolicited advice until they get lost in a trillion ideas and discover the Bridezilla | Groomzilla-them. Trust me, you do not want to be that person.
4. You Want To Elope… And Not In Vegas
Last but not least: gone are the days when eloping meant traveling long distances (and not-so-long) to marry in a Elvis-themed chapel in Vegas. Now “eloping” means traveling anywhere to have a much more inclusive, plan-able, and personalize-able wedding. Tahiti destination weddings or elopements offer a wide array of island choices (well, actually 118 islands) among them are Moorea, Bora Bora, Rangiroa, Taha’a and more.
Among my Tahiti destination wedding planning packages I have a special for smaller parties. That includes the planning of your ceremony + dinner locations, catering, music, flowers & décor, beauty and photography services, at a very preferential price.
