As little girls, what did we do when we wanted to play dress-up, delve into a book or have an adventure? We escaped. We found our own little corners, quiet places, or our “castle” made out of blankets. It was our world in which we could do and be anything, and escape the “ordinary” and everyday environment.
Now you’re about to be a bride. You’re all grown up, but with no less of a yearning to create a unique adventure, in which you and your prince (aka fiancé) can “escape” your everyday surroundings and routine. Some of you will stay in the city; some of you will go off to some exotic island to get married. But, some of you want something more in between. You still seek the “escape” but with somewhat familiar surroundings, and something your friends and family can be a part of.
With a “drivable destination” wedding you get the best of both worlds. You are able to capture the memorable splendor of an exotic, expensive and elegant signature wedding while avoiding the bank-breaking expense and hassle of a destination wedding. We’ll call it a “win-win.”
And, living in Texas, there is no shortage of eligible “drivable” wedding destinations: charming small towns, historic cities and affordable venues of all sorts guaranteed to suit any bride’s taste for the extraordinary.
Chelsea Rollert, international event and wedding planner, and owner of iLove Wedding & Event Design, is seeing a trend toward small town weddings.
“I think a lot more brides are wanting to get away from the city to a place where it’s more quiet and unique, with a laid back, different kind of pretty atmosphere,” she said. “It’s not one of those things that everyone else has done.”
(This wedding took place at a charming venue called The Zedler Mill)
