Interested In A Destination Wedding? 4 Ways To Plan The Perfect Event

Blog

If you have always had your heart set on getting married in a location that is far from home, you should go for it! Getting married at a destination that is meaningful for you is a great way to start your new married life.  

Schedule in Advance 

First, you need to schedule your wedding and share that information with your guests as far in advance as possible. If you want people to be able to attend the wedding, you need to give them a year or more notice. This will allow them to request time off work and plan their vacation time around the wedding. It will also allow them time to save up for the expense; don't just assume that all your family and friends have the money to spend on a weeks' vacation, airfare, and lodging.  

Choose a Destination Others Will Enjoy 

Next, you need to choose a destination that others will enjoy, not just a destination that you want to go to. You want to make sure that other people want to go to the destination you chose. You will be asking people to give up their vacation time, so your wedding venue needs to be a location they will enjoy taking a vacation time to. You need to think about the overall experience for everyone in your wedding party when you hold a destination wedding; you can't just think about your own enjoyment. You will get more people to attend the wedding if it is held in a location that appeals to a larger group of individuals.  

Hire a Local Planner 

You should hire a local wedding planner. Even with all the technological advances of the internet, it is still great to have someone on the ground who can meet with vendors in person and who can take care of last-minute details that come up that would be difficult for you to take care of. Plus, when you hire a local planner, you get access to all their local connections, which can make planning your wedding significantly easier.  

Plan for More Than the Wedding 

With a destination wedding, you need to plan to more than just plan for the wedding. You should plan or arrange the opportunity for everyone to take part in other fun events. A destination wedding is not just about the wedding day itself; it is about enjoy a vacation and time with your family and friends. It is about taking the time to build memories together that you will all cherish for years to come. This is a unique opportunity to vacation and spend time away from the worries of the normal world with your family. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity, and plan events to do together outside of your wedding.  

When it comes to planning a destination wedding, you want to schedule as far in advance as possible. You want to choose a location the other guests will enjoy, and plan for more than the wedding so you can all make memories together. Be sure to hire a wedding planner to help with the event.

Exploring The Wedding Planning Process

Hello, I am Ryan Vaughn. When I was growing up, I always dreamed of meeting the right girl and having a fairytale wedding. I thought out the tuxedo I would wear, dances we would complete and even the shape, size and flavor of the cake I wanted. Luckily, when I did meet the girl of my dreams, she had just as elaborate wedding desires. We set up a dream wedding with years of careful planning. Taking our time allowed us to get great deals on a venue, wedding supplies and clothing for our entire party. I would like to share the techniques we used to plan our wedding to help everyone achieve the event of their dreams. Thanks.
