San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
2013 is set to be a record-breaking year for Alamo Travel, which has already noted a 60% increase in the number of destination weddings planned for 2013 over the same time period in 2012. To help couples consider the benefits of a Destination Wedding, Alamo Travel has launched a new website http://www.dreamweddingsbyalamo.com.
Destination weddings hold many hidden benefits that are overlooked by couples thinking it’s not a viable option for them. Patricia Stout, President of Alamo Travel, says, “They can be less expensive than weddings at home where one has to invite all family members and friends.” They are also much more intimate for the couple because only close family members and friends attend.
There are also a lot of unique benefits. They provide the “vacation” element because often tours and fun activities are included for the couple and their guests. With a little research couples can find one-of-a-kind locations that offer the unique atmosphere of the destination. From mountains, lush landscapes and waterfalls, to beach, surf, sun and sand, to big city sights and attractions, there are thousands of destinations to choose from. It also allows for deals on the honeymoon package; the couple is already there!
Alamo Travel Counselors have more than 50 years of combined travel planning experience, and say they are seeing a trend of more young couples opting for elegant beach ceremonies rather than traditional weddings in their hometowns. “A Destination Wedding is a trip of a lifetime,” Stout says. “So we do everything we can to make it the most memorable journey the couple will ever have.”
Alamo Travel offers Destination Wedding packages for budgets of all sizes. Alamo Wedding Specialists can be reached at 210-593-5500 to set an appointment for a consultation.
