Destination Wedding | Ingenious Travel

Posted in Caribbean, General Travel Information, Travel, Travel Tips, on 19 May 2017, by , 0 Comments

Considering having a destination wedding for your upcoming nuptials? That’s an excellent decision! Not only will you save a lot of money compared with a traditional wedding, you’ll have a stunning location to say “I do” to the one you love. If you do hope to have a destination wedding – there are three things you need to know.

  1. It might not be legal in the United States.

This is one of the most surprising facts to couples, but the reality is that many destination weddings are in fact just ceremonies. In other words, you’ll still need to get married in the states to make the civil agreement legal. There are ways to have a legal wedding outside of the U.S., but the paperwork, blood tests (yes, really!), and all of the additional red tape make it a lot more difficult. Add to that the fact that if you make it legal in another country, it might not be recognized by the states, and you might as well just get married here, and have the ceremony elsewhere.

Exotic Travevl | Ingenious TravelAn exotic vacation means different things to different people. For some, it means a trip to a hot destination like Tahiti or the Seychelles. For others, it’s an adventure trip with nonstop thrills like sky diving and riding an ATV off the coast of Maui. An exotic vacation may entail lots of different and exciting activities that you would not have the chance to enjoy otherwise, but regardless of what you’re doing and where you’re going there are definitely some things you can do to make your exotic travel experience an easier one.

First and foremost, hire Ingenious Travel! When you hire a travel agent to handle all of your travel needs, your trip instantly becomes much more exciting and easier to plan because all of the legwork is handled for you! We can come up with an itinerary that suits your needs perfectly, and we can help you stay within your budget.

Second, figure out what exotic means to you. Sometimes answering the question of what the best places and activities of a given destination can prove difficult, and varies from person to person. One person might want to climb scenic peaks by morning, look for sea turtle eggs on the beach at lunch and go on a zip line tour in the afternoon. This may be great for them, but what if you would prefer something not quite so strenuous or perhaps a little cheaper? To know your trip goals ahead of time and the goals of your travel companions will better help you design the perfect trip.

Don’t go in blindly. By this I mean don’t just choose a destination based on a brochure. Ask us, your travel agents about the areas you are considering. We can tell you about guided tours, historic sites, and about areas that you otherwise would not have a chance to see and experience.

Ocean Cruise River Cruise | Ingenious Travel

 

For those of you who have become quite the well-seasoned ocean cruisers, you may have heard that ocean exploration isn’t the only option out there. Whether you are growing tired of the massive crowds that come along with ocean cruising or you simply want to switch things up a bit for your future cruise adventure, here are some of the main differences of both to help you make some decisions…

No Waves vs. Many Waves

If you have ever had to deal with sea sickness, then you may know exactly why this is such a big difference. Nothing is worse than having your entire vacation ruined by the bumpiness that seems to not sit so well with your stomach. With river cruises, the chances of this are slim to none, making your stomach happier and your trip possibly much more enjoyable. For those of you who never suffer from sea sickness, then this may be irrelevant but still nice to know.

Seeing & Touching Land Everyday vs. Every Other Day

For river cruises, you are able to see land every single day you are on board in addition to actually in port and stepping on land every single day as well. This is unlike ocean cruises as you may go an entire day without even seeing a speck of land. If you don’t mind staring out into the wide open ocean and seeing nothing but blue all around you, then ocean cruises may be great for you! However, if you prefer quite the opposite and enjoy being in port every day, then river cruises might just be your cup of tea.
