Are you one of those hopelessly romantic couples that have always pictured your wedding in a unique spot out of the bustle of everyday life? Imagine yourself saying ‘I do’ beside the ocean, on one of the Caribbean islands or even at a ranch way out of town.
As an experienced wedding planner, Dazzling Events observe that while many people think that destination weddings are expensive, when well planned, they might turn out to be way cheaper than you expected and worth the while for all the memories you create.
Like any other events, planning a destination event can be frustrating and stressful. To avoid the last minute rush, start planning early. Think through all the things that you need to do and put them down in a list. This list should help you sail through but most importantly, top on your list, should be your search for a wedding planner.
You need to work with a planner who will help you execute your dream wedding to the letter. Dazzling Events attention to detail and exquisite implementation of your ideas makes them a worthy wedding partner to consider.
Stick to your budget
In most cases, guests will pay for their own cost at the lodging and any other ventures that they may want to undertake while at the destination venue. While you may do a welcome cocktail or an after party, it is important to ensure that you do not go overboard with your budget. Take care of all the costs that you need to but do not exhaust your budget. You do not want to start marriage life bankrupt.
Communicate in advance
Destination weddings need early planning. As such you need to properly communicate with your guests on the dates as well as the time that you want them to arrive and how easily they can get there. If you have shuttle transport to the destination it is also important to let them know in time. Provide a guide on direction to those that may want to make their way through driving. You do not want your guests stuck in the middle of nowhere while you take the most important vows of your life.
Set up in time
A destination wedding needs you to be very well prepared in terms of tents, décor, seating arrangement and even catering. You cannot start figuring out how people will seat a day or even a week to your wedding. Work with a planner that has a wide range of tents, seats, podiums and even décor options to ensure that they can match your unique wedding venue’s needs.
Your family and friends are from different parts of the country. You want them to arrive for your wedding in time and style. While how they travel may not be entirely up to you, working with a wedding planner such as Dazzling events will solidify the logistics so that the main guests make their way in time for the nuptials.
Above all, make your destination wedding as memorable as possible. Create activities that will make your wedding stand out from the rest.
