Destination Wedding Film

Hiring a wedding videographer to craft your destination wedding film will be one of the best decisions you make. 


When you are planning a wedding in another city, state, or country, you’ll want to ensure that your wedding is properly documented so that you are able to share every detail with friends and family back home. 


In this article, we’ll cover the top questions we get about destination weddings and help you determine if this type of wedding is right for you and your partner.


Destination Wedding Definition

You may be wondering “What is a destination wedding?” A destination wedding is a wedding that takes place in a location outside of the city or state you call home. This could be in a neighboring state, or at the foot of a waterfall in Iceland. There is no right or wrong place to host your destination wedding, as the choice is yours!

How much does a destination wedding cost?

When calculating your budget for a wedding that will require travel for you and/or your guests, there are a few considerations that must be thoroughly thought through. 

  • Location: Where will your wedding take place?
  • Travel: What are the fees to travel to this location?
    • Will you be paying some of your guests or wedding party to travel?
  • Guestlist: How many people will you be inviting?
    • Your guest list will set the tone for other expenses such as:
      • Venue
      • Catering fees
      • Bar fees
  • Experience: Do you envision your destination wedding as an intimate wedding or elopement with your partner that kicks off your honeymoon? Or do you envision inviting a large crew of family and friends with group excursions following days after your ceremony?
  • Length of stay: Do you plan on picking up and heading home after your ceremony and reception, or do you plan to stay awhile, enjoy yourself, and add more coverage to include in your destination wedding film? (Your wedding videographer will be able to create the best wedding film if you are able to incorporate multiple days into your wedding videography coverage.)
