Many brides are seeking a new and exciting wedding away from their home state or even their
country. Many people are working or attending college and want to combine the wedding with a
"vacation honey moon".

Choices may be related to time and distance. Young couples are meeting and often come from
different parts of the country. The world is at your fingertips with many air flights and cruise

Many couples are from different countries and may want more than one ceremony: one
in the states and another in the home country of the other person.

Whether a first time marriage or a second time around, Destination Weddings are very popular, and
gaining more and more attention.

Those on the Eastern part of the United States often seek the Caribbean, Mexico, Puerto
Rico, Bermuda, or Islands off the East coast of the United States. Others, who want a ski wedding
prefer to head up north to New England or Canada, or even to the west in the winter season.

A Destination wedding for a Nashville couple can also be the Smokey Mountains in Gatlinburg, a
day's drive away or to Orlando, for a fairy tale wedding.

Planning a Destination wedding in a foreign country takes much longer, and has far more
paperwork to prepare, to meet the religious and country requirements, but is the dream of many
bridal couples.

Weddings with Elan® has had a number of interesting and exciting weddings planned for
European countries, such as in Vienna, Austria, as well as in Morocco.

Sometimes a wedding in another country does not work out, such as a couple who wanted to wed
in Venice, with a 6 month lead time. Since the bride had been married before, much of the
paperwork had to be sent to Milan to be translated before plans could be formed. The estimated
time was far beyond the date the couple wanted, so instead, Elan® arranged for the couple to
marry at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas and honeymoon in Venice!

What ever your choice, contact WEDDINGS WITH ELAN, to help you in your planning. North,
South, East or West, we will help you find the best!

             PLEASE COMPLETE this Destination and Distance Questionaire if you are
