If you wish to be cost-effective with your planning, choosing to book your wedding venue and other plans for the off-peak season would help you save up to 20-35% off your given rates. To save more consider booking your flights around 3-6 prior. This applies especially for ASEAN regions, since booking in advance is approximately 53% cheaper than doing so closer to the date.
Destination weddings can be quite expensive, but it also can be quite affordable if one goes about planning it correctly and minimally. Thinking long and hard about what will be crucial for the ceremony and keeping the guest list small will save you a couple hundred of dollars. Since destination weddings are all about the views, location and novel experience consider skipping the extravagant party favours and decorations.
