Destination weddings have become very popular, especially with millennials, according to a 2016 Wedding Travel Trent Report. But the cost of traveling to tropical locales are prohibitive for many guests, and according to this report, the average number of attendees at a tropical destination wedding is only about 28.
Global News reported that as many as one-in-five Canadian couples are heading to tropical climates for their nuptials, and as many as 40% of millennial couples are heading south.
Many couples are looking to trim the number of guests they invite to keep the cost of their wedding down, but this number is much lower than many couples wish for.
At Footprints Resort, a private romantic retreat for couples, they understand the intricacies of planning a wedding and have hosted many I Do’s on their beautiful, natural grounds.
Footprints can accommodate approximately 55 people in it’s elegantly appointed rooms, villas, and cabins and has room for camping, should any of the guests be up for camping. As well, there are plenty of nearby hotels, Air BnB’s and private cottages to rent for overflow guests.
