Affordable destination weddings are the dream scenario for couples who want their big day to be unique and involve travel.  Did you know that this can be done in beautiful locations (like St. Joseph, Michigan) that truly aren’t that far away or expensive to travel to?

Planning affordable destination weddings in Hawaii or Cancun isn’t very feasible, since the distance means a lot of remote planning, and cost much more than regional destination wedding venues.  “Affordable” goes right out the window.

However, if you’re located in the Midwest, you can reach one of the most popular destination wedding venues within just a couple of hours.  On top of that, the pricing of destination wedding venues in the St. Joseph area is usually much less expensive than big-city counterparts.
