Flying away to a far off place, with your dream location as a backdrop, is undoubtedly the most romantic way to tie the knot with your loved one. A destination wedding transforms the dream of marrying your sweetheart in an exquisite location, far away from home into a reality. Nothing can beat the fun, excitement, adventure and romance that come with a destination wedding. Anyone who aspires to have a destination wedding or is planning for one knows how perfect a destination wedding can be for tying the knot after the hectic matchmaking and other pre-wedding functions. That said; here are some tips that will help you make your destination wedding even more perfect.
Choose The Location Of Mutual Interest:- Choosing the location for a destination wedding is the most crucial as well as the most tedious tasks. Don’t forget to include your partner while you are going through the list of wedding locations; it should be a mutual decision. Both of you should feel elated on the big day and picking a location that is loved by both would ensure the same. Keep in mind the mood you want to set for the wedding, the theme/decor you want, the travel time and not to forget the budget you have before choosing the destination.
Know The Right Time:- Time plays an important role in setting up the right mood for a destination wedding. If you have chosen a popular tourist destination for your wedding, ensure the time of the marriage does not overlap with the tourist season. In fact, choosing the high-season time for the wedding may also make you shed some extra bucks as it’s the time when hotels and travel fares are at their peak. The weather is also an important factor when it comes to choosing the perfect time. Ensure that you plan your wedding when it’s the best season for that location.
Plan A Trip:- Making a visit to the location is recommended to all those planning for a destination wedding. A mere look at the online pictures and videos is not enough. This trip is not just important for you to check out the location in person but also to see the hotels, meet the planners, talk about the various recreational activities for the guests and other important stuff. You should also check out the surroundings to ensure that you are getting a calm and serene environ for your nuptials as promised by the planner or not.
Venue Decoration And Styling:- Most of us have a theme in our mind while choosing the destination for the wedding. The decor and styling of the venue are important focus-points for bringing out the theme that you want in the best possible way. Many destination wedding planners even suggest that you should stick with the decor, styling and even the food items that are a specialty of that destination. You would obviously not want to have a beach-style wedding in a royal fort. Discuss with the planner about what type of decor compliments the destination and choose a theme that goes with the setting.
Tell The Guests Beforehand:- Destination weddings certainly require prior information when it comes to the guests. They need to be informed around 9-10 months in advance if you are planning a destination wedding so that they can make arrangements for their travel and stay. Draft an event itinerary for your guests so that they can also plan for their personal experience of the surroundings accordingly.
Make your wedding a memorable affair by opting for a destination wedding. It is one of the most romantic ways to tie the knot with your loved one and start a new chapter of life hand-in-hand as life partners. The tips that have been discussed above would ensure that you celebrate your big day sails smoothly and you enjoy it to the fullest.
