Best Destination Wedding  Cities

Yes, we know we are professional party planners but maybe because we do this all day, all night long, we are strong proponents of the destination event idea.  When it came time to plan my youngest daughter's Bat Mitzvah, I threw up my hands, decided not to feed the masses yet again, and headed to Israel making memories to last a lifetime. .Will I succeed in convincing my daughter and her brothers to do the same when they get married?  Thank goodness it is way too early to say but I want to encourage all of you  at least to consider the option of a destination wedding.

So how would we go about planning a destination wedding?  There are two ways to approach this — first is to decide on the style you would like your wedding to be and find a hotel property to coincide with your vision and the second is to choose your dates and then check out the rates  and design you wedding style around availability.  I know the second option is very nontraditional but truthfully by working backwards, sometimes you end up with an affair that better suits your budget and therefore is so much less stressful and so much more fun and unique to your own personal style.  Remember any locale and any wedding look can be made elegant, vintage chic, or even kitsch, depending on your personal taste and preferences.

One advantage of hosting a destination wedding is that your attendee list will be self limiting.  Only those nearest and dearest to you will be willing to travel to see you exchange marriage vows.  This eliminates the issue of third cousin Charlie and his in-laws and four children wanting a free meal.  Simply put — it cuts down on your costs! It doesn't take many eliminated  guests to make up for the hotel room and plane tickets.

Party Idea Pros Top 5 Destination Wedding Choices

Las Vegas

My cousin Marty, who lives in Florida, married his beautiful and loving wife Phylis in Las Vegas.  I know on first glance it may raise a few eyebrows but it was one of the most elegant and delightful weddings I have ever attended.  They were married by a Rabbi in a lovely chapel located in the Belaggio Hotel and had a chic wedding reception for their closest friends and family right there in one of the banquet rooms.  As a guest, Las Vegas was a great destination because of the ease of flying in and out and because there were so many hotel choices at different price points from which to choose all within walking distance of the wedding locale.  Plus, there was always plenty to do and a never-ending list of scrumptious dining choices for the days before  and after the wedding.

New York City

Yes, you read that correctly, when we think romance, we think New York City.  We put NYC on our list of top destination wedding locations because with over 50 million visitors in 2011, New York City really knows how to throw out the welcome mat.  Their wedding professionals are top notch and there are so many iconic venue locations to choose from — think Central Park, The Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, hundreds of small eateries, gorgeous banquet rooms,  even the Brooklyn Bridge.  Plus how cool would it be to skip the rehearsal dinner and instead all attend a Broadway play together — you will have plenty of time for toasting and sharing at the wedding reception.
