Some Things to Consider if You’re Planning a Destination Wedding
When you are planning a wedding, one of the first things that you are going to need to think about is where you want to get married.
As soon as you have put that ring on their finger (round cut diamonds of course) then you are going to need to think about whether you want to have your wedding in your local area, or further afield?
It seems that, of late, destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. The idea of not only getting married but also being able to enjoy a honeymoon at the same time, in a beautiful part of the world. Well, we can see why that might be tempting.
When it comes to planning a destination wedding, there are plenty of things that you are going to need to think about and decide on. Which means that you need to have some type of checklist to make sure that you don’t miss anything off.
To help you to make sure that you plan your destination wedding perfectly, we have put together our guide on the main things to consider if you are planning a destination wedding.
Who will come?
One of the only downsides of planning a destination wedding is that you are going to have a limit on the guests that will be there. Of course, this does make your wedding feel more special and intimate, but you may upset or disappoint some guests. Right from the start, you need to think about who is likely to be able to afford to come to your wedding day as well as who will travel. You need to give them plenty of time to plan, save and book the travel so always be mindful of this when choosing a date.
What will the weather be like?
You may think that planning a destination wedding means that you are guaranteed to get great weather. Of course, there is some truth to this, as there is a good chance that you are going to get sunshine, but you still need to pay attention to the local climate. Even the sunniest and driest of places can get rain, which you will need to be mindful of. You also need to make sure that you are not planning your wedding during a heatwave, as this could cause you (and your guests) a few problems too.
Learn more about the country
Of course, if you are planning to get married abroad, then you also need to be aware of the customs and legalities of getting married in that particular country. This should always be something that you think about right at the beginning, as it can cause you big issues later on during the process.
Speak to people who have gotten married there themselves or try and find a local wedding expert who can help to answer some of the questions that you may have.
So, there you go, some of the things that you need to keep in mind when it comes to planning a destination wedding. It may sound like there is a lot to do, but when you are on that beach, overlooking the ocean, with those most important to you at your side, then you will know that all the effort was worth it.
