This week we're saying I DO to an episode about one of the big rebounds in travel, the destination wedding celebration. With host Rebecca Tobin is hotels editor Christina Jelski, who just finished a Focus Issue cover on the subject of wedding-travel trends, plus two travel advisors who are serious destination wedding experts: VIP Vacations president Jennifer Doncsecz and KT Travel & More owner Stephanie Kilson-Thomas.

Among our topics are the growth in the number of guests, spending more and adding extras, the impact of social media on destination weddings in 2022, where couples are traveling to get married, and the stress of planning a wedding in the face of Covid rules and restrictions.

This episode has been edited for length and clarity.
