With weddings having the potential to cost upwards of $30,000, it’s hardly surprising that more couples are turning their backs on all the traditional trappings. Destination weddings accounted for 31 per cent of nuptials between 2011 and 2016, although this is a drop from the 44 per cent who did the same thing between 2001 and 2010.
