We get it. Sometimes picture-perfect blue skies, sparkling azure waters and soft white sand beaches can be a little 'too perfect' for your wedding day backdrop.
It’s no secret that Fiji does beach weddings very well, but did you know it boasts a range of other locations for those who have pictured something a little different for their special day?
Here are five reasons you will love getting married in Fiji:
1. Personalised Locations
Your wedding location can perfectly compliment your wedding style, whether it's boho by the beach, an all-white party poolside, casual chic in a garden or farm, or breath-taking at a nearby waterfall.
Once you have made your decision, you can relax in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. Via email or over the phone you can easily customise your ceremony to your needs with a professional wedding coordinator in Fiji.
2. The Friendly Factor
Fiji has perfected the art of hospitality. The reason Fiji has such a high return guest rate is the 'Bula Spirit', likened to New Zealand’s very own 'Manaakitanga'.
From the moment you step off the plane, you'll be enveloped in the warmth, hospitality, generosity and the genuine happiness of locals, who will go above and beyond to make sure your special day is perfect.
Before your ceremony is over you and your guests will already be planning your next visit back for more!
3. The Price Will Blow Your Mind – In The Best Possible Way
Aren’t destination weddings expensive? No! Fiji is affordable, with most resorts and local travel agents or wedding specialists offering great deals.
They will work with you to help create your dream wedding experience while adhering to your budget. A lot of couples end up spending less on a destination wedding than a comparable wedding at home, plus you get to enjoy being on holiday with your nearest and dearest while tying the knot!
So, have your wedding and honeymoon in one, and don't break the bank doing it.
4. Your Nearest and Dearest Together For One Big Party
Life is busy, and it’s not often you get to enjoy quality time with all of your friends and family.
Fiji has incredible activities on offer to keep your group entertained, like ziplining through the rainforest, quad biking in Fiji’s interior or spending the day at an island beach club.
There’s also the option to stay resort-based and make use of the included activities; think beach volleyball tournaments, snorkelling trips and relaxed stand-up paddle boarding excursions.
Come together each evening for themed dinners (purely for the laughs). Who doesn't want to see their aunty dressed up in a toga or father-in-law in head to toe pink for a flamingo party?!
5. It's All For You!
Can you imagine having your wedding in a stunning location where everything is yours, from the pool, restaurant and bar through to every room the resort has to offer? How does having staff available just to cater to you and your guests’ every need sound?
Buying out a resort is no longer just for the rich and famous. Many resorts in Fiji have buy-out options allowing you to bring everyone you love under one roof and enjoy the resort all to yourselves.
The ability to laugh and celebrate until the early hours of the morning without annoying fellow holidaymakers is an added bonus!
If you decide to get married in Fiji, you can relax in the knowledgethateverything is taken care of. Fiji has several professional wedding coordinators who can customise your ceremony for your needs. From photography, flowers and food to honeymoon destinations, you don’t need to lift a finger.
