You can also check us out at www.weddingselsewhere.com. The focus of Weddings Elsewhere echoes AfWPI’s mission—to connect wedding industry professionals worldwide to prospective couples, making a perfect match. Did you know that there are more than 2.1 million weddings a year by U.S. couples alone? Of those 16 percent are destination weddings. That’s more than 336,000 weddings held elsewhere! We’ll be exploring such topics as how to choose a wedding vendor/location; hidden destinations; cruise weddings; pros and cons of using wedding planners & destination wedding planners; how to take the best wedding photos ever; legal requirements for non-U.S.-based weddings; travel tips for wedding guests; colonial/historic wedding locations; adventure wedding ideas; beach weddings; all-inclusive weddings; bed and breakfast weddings; how to decide on the right wedding reception. In other words, anything about planning the perfect destination wedding! And if there’s something you want to see covered, or a question for one of our hundreds of AfWPI members, just email me at Richard@afwpi.com or contact our editor, Nicole Millman-Falk, at Nicole@apogeepublications.com. We are thrilled to go on this journey with you so that your destination wedding is all that you’ve ever dreamed it would be.
