Destination weddings have become popular worldwide, and Bodrum is increasingly becoming a favored location for those seeking a seaside wedding in a romantic and exotic locale. Destination weddings are gaining favor as an increasing number of couples want to get married far from home, and bring their closest family members and friends with them to share in the celebration. These weddings are also appealing because, compared to traditional weddings, destination weddings give couples more time to spend with each individual guest. In addition, they allow the bride and groom to combine their wedding and honeymoon if they so choose. While many of the couples who marry in Bodrum are Turkish or half-Turkish, there are also an increasing number of foreigners who choose Bodrum after falling in love with its beauty.
Destination weddings are about bringing together your family and closest friends in a beautiful location, and celebrating your union. They not only enhance the wedding day itself, but also enrich all the activities that surround it. With its crystal blue waters, rolling hills covered with olive trees and citrus groves, and white-washed buildings draped with bougainvillea, Bodrum makes an ideal backdrop to any wedding. Its many leisure options, including a thriving nightlife and wealth of boat trip and party opportunities, further add to its appeal. You name it: in Bodrum, you can indulge in it. You and your friends can spend the days sunning on beaches and shopping in local stores, and the evenings enjoying any number of themed parties as you build up to the big day. Add to this a number of boutique and five-star hotels and spas that offer top-notchservices, and Bodrum is truly a perfect location for a destination wedding.
