Intimate Multi-Day Celebrations | Destination Wedding Trend 2023

With Covid fresh in many minds, many modern couples with wanderlust in their hearts and a desire to prioritize experiences above material possessions, are choosing to plan intimate multi-day wedding celebrations in unique locations worldwide. They want to share their passion for travel and new experiences with those closest to them.

Imagine a few days exploring Ubud with your fiancé, your best friends, and your parents and siblings.  A monkey jumps on your dad’s shoulders at monkey forest, while your mom laughs hysterically trying to catch it all on her phone.  The serene sounds of the lush jungle surrounding your private villa, while you have massages with your best girl friends from college. Your fiancé and their best friends going out for dinner of babi guling (roast suckling pig) and lots of Bintang, then meeting up with everyone for late night drink and dancing. Waking up to breakfast in bed and then heading down to the beach for some R&R or a surf lesson with your best mate.

On the way to your wedding villa, you could stopping along the way to explore a few temples and take in the breathtaking rice terraces along the drive. Envision your dad helping your mom navigate the narrow path thru the rice fields, they’re smiling, laughing and taking it all in. It’s those kind of moments you’ll never forget.  

After a few days of exploring, lots of laughs, unforgettable moments, and some R&R, your wedding day arrives.  You say vows in front of the people that mean the most to you, and a luxurious table is set on the cliffs edge so everyone can take it all in.  The magical dream like location, the love that you have for one another, and the experience of a lifetime. Priceless.
