Deal seekers can offset wedding expenses by planning nuptials at wedding destinations during the off-peak season, when hotel properties are not as busy or can offer more flexibility.

Not to mention, it gives your guests a chance to vacation, too! Choosing a resort as your venue can provide a slew of attractions and convenient location for friends and family to partake in your special day.
