Background: Destination weddings are on the rise! In fact, 24 percent of all weddings are in a destination, equating to about 7,200 Houstonians who will tie the knot in a far off city this year. Many people think that having a tropical wedding means a higher price tag, when in fact, it’s just the opposite! Destination weddings can be significantly less expensive with an average cost of $24,000, compared to $50,000 for a wedding held in the city of Houston.
