With so many gay and lesbian couples getting married, a man and a man or a woman and a woman joining in matrimony is a step in the right direction away from age-old customs and judgements.

With your wedding only a plane flight away, your Save the Date cards and maybe even your wedding invitations in the mail, you can still make it be everything you and your partner dreamed of. Every couple has their own journey to the aisle and it is that story that brings a wedding to life. More destination couples recognize this and make choices that break away from the standard destination wedding packages lesbian brides at their Florida beach destination weddingin favor of taking details into their own hands, capturing their love story in a unique and highly personal way.

Whether it’s ethnic attire, sentimental personalized vows, custom favors or local foods, personalizing your wedding will allow you to make the memories last a lifetime. Each detail of a couple’s wedding day should be a thoughtful expression of their love for each other.

Destination weddings bring together guests from all over the world, and couples are recognizing this unique opportunity by planning group adventures and activities that offer amazing and entirely memorable experiences. LGBT families come in all shapes and sizes, and as a result we’re seeing a significant increase in interest for LGBTQ family-friendly resorts offering couples the opportunity to bring guests of all ages. This is particularly favored by couples that like to include their own children, or plan to invite guests and their children.

Planning ahead for these adventures by pre-booking is an important (and cost effective!) strategy. Wedding photographers are also joining in on the fun, as couples are now hiring professionals to capture every adventure as it unfolds.

Destination weddings don’t just offer one special day – they bring a completely unique wedding and travel experience for the LGBT couple and guests alike. Couples now have the opportunity to share their love across all borders, celebrating their vows in a loving environment among family and friends.
