How to Plan a Trip Around Someone Else's Wedding

How to Plan a Trip Around Someone Else's Wedding

Women Who Travel - August 6, 2019 - 29:23

Here at the *Traveler* office, we love weddings. It's a time to see old friends, make a few new ones on the dance floor, and, if you're lucky, an excuse see a new city if only for a weekend. But with a finite number of vacation days to spend jetting to see "I dos" and do the Cha Cha Slide—and limited funds to dedicate to getting yourself there—you've got to maximize your time on the ground. So whether you can squeeze out a single dinner away from the wedding party, or extend your trip into a real vacation, we've got tips on making the most out of someone else's wedding, whether it's in Cape Town, Santa Fe, or your own backyard. Joined by Traveler's articles director Stephanie Wu and community editor Megan Spurrell, we break down the type of weddings we'd travel for, how to make the most of the few hours you have to spare, and what to give newlyweds that share your love of travel.
