    Destination weddings can actually be very budget-friendly.

    Wedding destinations like Bali in particular are so popular for this very reason, with plenty of all-inclusive packages and flexible options when it comes to catering, styling and decor to suit any budget.

    Your budget will also come down even further when you consider your guest list will likely be smaller, and you can save on an additional honeymoon by spending some extra time relaxing in paradise after the day.

    7. Extend your celebrations

    Your wedding is one of the most special and significant days of your entire life – so why not soak it all up and make the party last a little longer?

    Plus, destination weddings are all about extending your celebrations and spending quality time with your loved ones, instead of trying to cram it all into just one day.
