Princesses, Castles, Enchanted Forests and Dragons – Exploring (Eco) Destination Wedding Consumption

We explore consumers’ commitment to holding a destination wedding, and whether sustainability concerns motivate this decision in any way. Our intention is to develop theory that expands our understanding of how perceived meanings of destination weddings are formed within consumer culture, and the role identity plays in transformative consumer behaviour.
