Planning Your Perfect Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are basically a two in one wedding and honeymoon. A dreamwedding and a romantic getaway to get a fresh start in life. However, it is important to plan ahead to make sure everything works out like you pictured it.

The Location:

Discuss with your partner about the potential destinations you have in mind. Think of places that resonate with you as a couple. Make sure all the resources you need are accessible from this location and that it can accommodate all your guests.

The Budget:

Select three locations that both you and your partner agreed on and compare the prices. Take into account things you can use to your advantage like the local blooms that would provide a beautiful setting.

Enough Time:

Notify your guests well in advance to give them enough time to calculate if they can afford to come to your wedding.

Wedding Planner:

Hiring a wedding planner from your chosen destination will make things a lot easier for you. They will have a better grasp of the local language, have local contacts that you can use to your advantage, and they will know about the local rules and laws that might concern you.

The Hotel:

Choose an affordable hotel that won’t cost you a large part of your overall wedding budget. Put your brand reward points to best use and get those discounts!

Putting your Guests at Ease:

Informing those details like exchange rates, travel options, shopping recommendations will make them more comfortable and help eliminate any confusion.

The Dress:

Make sure you pick a dress that will be comfortable in the weather at the destination. Choose breathable fabrics for hotter climates and thicker materials for colder climates to keep you warm. Make sure you take care to pack the dress in such a way that no damage occurs to the dress during the commute.

Legality:

If you’re worried about the legal procedures of getting married outside the country, you could consider registering at your home country prior to the actual wedding. This will also help avoid unwanted stress on the big day.

Arrive early:

Make sure you arrive at your destination at least 5 days prior to the wedding so that you can personally make sure everything is in order.

Most importantly don’t stress about it too much and enjoy your big day. This blog post explains 6 things that could go wrong at a wedding – planning an open area wedding.
