During ConnecTALKS: Exploring Luxury Romance Travel, Connections Wedding and Honeymoon Tourism mentor and the owner/founder of Honeymoons and Getaways, Nancy Barkley, will touch on the newest trending arm of the 'World of Weddings': Romance travel.

NORTH WALES, Pa. - eTradeWire -- The luxury hospitality industry is further shaping the multibillion-dollar destination wedding industry which includes romance travel.

Romance travel is the trending extended arm of the World of Weddings.  It includes not only destination weddings but honeymoons, elopements, engagements, vow renewals, and anniversary travel, all collectively Wedding Tourism.

A study accepted into the Journal of Tourism and Gastronomy Studies stated in June 2021:  wedding tourism, one of the newly emerging products in tourism, provides a range of economic benefits resulting from the travels of couples and guests to the region and contributes economically not only to the destination but also to the components of the tourism sector and the sub-sectors.

Wedding Tourism is significant to a destinations economy.  Weddings feed into a collection of businesses, from wedding planners, to caterers, to florists, to hotels, to tour guides and so on.

Together we can build a larger wedding community and drive economic growth to our respective destinations and restore local economies positively.

Some recommendations:
  • Make sure to hire local wedding planners, florists, photographers, entertainment in the destination where your wedding event is taken place.
  • Make sure to purchase any welcome gifts from local vendors
  • Invite guests to give back locally instead of a wedding gift, perhaps contribute to local charity.
  • Volunteer events in instead of golf events
  • Find local projects and activities to contribute to or participate in that give back to residents.
  • Eat in local restaurants and try local cuisine - and buy souvenirs and gifts from local artisans or in local markets.
  • Suggest that the couple consider sustainable wedding attire (e.g., vintage dresses).
