Traveling solo can be relaxing but we must use common sense. Always let your hotel concierge know where you are going and when you plan to return. Don’t walk alone in dangerous neighborhoods or at night. Don’t drift away from groups of people at the same place you are.
When I started in the wedding business over 20 years ago, it appeared that all the brides wanted to plan a large and lavish local wedding.

So when destination weddings started becoming popular later on, I realized that the goal of the wedding couple shifted to minimizing stress and costs.
