iStock_000021098929_ExtraSmallWe all know June is the most popular month for weddings, but did you know December is the biggest month for engagements?   According to USA Today, over 39% of couples get engaged between November and February with 16% happening in December. All the holiday cheer, beautiful winter landscapes, and family gatherings make it the perfect time to pop the question (no pressure guys).

So if you find your fella down on one knee this holiday season, put on that sparkly ring, and enjoy the holidays with a beautiful ornament of your own.   Of course, after you say “yes” you will undoubtedly log countless hours on Pinterest and wedding sites looking for the perfect way for you two to say “I do”.   If you want to take some of the pressure off the wedding, and put it on becoming Mr. & Mrs. instead, why not do a destination wedding?   Talk to your family over the holidays and ask what they think about going to a beautiful location to witness your marriage.   Or maybe the two  of you just want to elope and do it on your own, then come back and throw a huge party.  Your St. Louis travel agents at Travel Leaders in Chesterfield can help you either way.iStock_000021594492_ExtraSmall

Some of the most popular destination wedding locations are:   Mexico (we have some breathtaking photos of brides in Riviera Maya from 2012. Take a look at this destination wedding we planned at Secrets Maroma), Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Hawaii, USVI, but we could also do a destination wedding on a mountaintop in Denver, a vineyard in Sonoma, a courtyard in New Orleans, or a ranch in Texas.  Whatever your style, we can help you every step of the way.

Couples choose destination weddings for a number of reasons, but here are some of our favorites:

  • A cost effective way to have the wedding of your dreams
  • Low stress
  • Alleviates much of the family drama that often arises around weddings
  • Allows a more intimate setting with your family and closest friends
  • Your honeymoon can start right away!
  • Plus, it is perfect for second marriages and extended families.
