Off the beaten track
Stephanie Griffiths, the owner of Mangata Escapes, points out that off-site locations are also on the rise.
“The demand for these off-the-beaten path locations has been steadily increasing over the past few years as vendor fees on resorts are rising,” she notes. “Brides are wanting to find a better value for their wedding, more bang for their buck and these spaces offer that. They also come with more privacy and a much more personalized experience.”
“The experience is becoming the focal point of the destination wedding rather than the beach and resort amenities.”
