You Don’t Want A Huge Wedding
A destination wedding is the perfect way to weed out anyone you don’t really want to go.

One Day Isn’t Enough!
When choosing a destination wedding couples usually make the wedding last longer. Everyone flies in the day before and spends some time together. Organising an activity the day before is a great way for friends and family to get to know each other. Often couples will hire a villa for a few days and invite their bridesmaids and groomsmen to join them. Dynamic Lives have some amazing options for this.
