For your guests this will an intimate ceremony to experience your wedding as an everlasting memory which will be embedded in their hearts forever. A destination wedding means a perfect blend of honeymoon and wedding. But there are certain important details to consider before you sail off to tie the knot.
Choose a dreamy location
Often planning a destination wedding requires lot of background research as the place should have all the necessary facilities for accommodating your guest’s. It should have proper transportation facilities as well. Imagine a scenario in which you have invited your entire guest to your dreamy location having nothing but low class accommodation. It is my guess that you don’t want that. So make sure that the place is ideal in all suitable ways.
Visit the place in advance
The main questions to be answered before choosing destination wedding are where? And How?
You cannot fix a destination for wedding which you happened to see when flipping the pages of a magazine at a coffee shop or from a travel blog. You have to visit the site in advance and set up and make sure that it is your ideal location in all aspects. If you have already been there and chosen one then there is nothing to worry.
Hire a professional wedding planner
Set meeting with local wedding planners or even management personals who are quite known in that area. Fix one who is reliable and quite experienced suitable for your budget, don’t worry if you are new to the place as you can always ask the local contacts to help. They guide you in choosing the right time and right places as they know whom to contact and what all be the odds to be managed beforehand.
Consider the time
Pick up a time with a pleasant weather which is most suitable for your guest like a holiday or a weekend when they themselves wish for a get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Make you do the reservation well in advance as you don’t want to make any last minute chances. After all it’s your wedding.
Invite your guests well in advance
Make sure that you invite your entire well in advance giving them enough time to think about it and calculate the budget of coming and going to your wedding. Also give specific details to your guests such as when and where the venue of the wedding.
Consider the outfit
Make sure that your wedding attire is ready and proper before the wedding. You might have to choose the right kind of dress as you don’t want to drip in pool of sweat if you choose a woollen suit to a sunny beach outdoor venue.
What if something goes wrong?
If you are planning a wedding in an outdoor or a less known location it is better to have a good back up plan right up your sleeves. Weather condition can change anytime if it happens you can smoothly get yourself and the guests to the new location with a minimal effort at the same time retaining the holiday mood.
