Are you think of having a destination style wedding? If you are, then these tips and recommendations from our experts will be very useful for you…
- Think of the guests when fixing the date – unlike other traditional kind, when it’s a destination wedding, your guests have to spend more time getting ready. If they are expected to fly out to get to your destination venue, they have to make the bookings for their flights in advance to avoid over paying fir it. And unless you are paying for it, they will have to make preparations for wedding accommodation for themselves as well. If you have guests in your list who are very busy and have hectic schedules, it’s important that you give them plenty of time in advance to figure everything out…
- Getting the timing just right for the weather – you might have found an affordable party accommodation Geelong for your guests, and even the perfect wedding to hold your ceremony. But have you taken the weather into consideration? Yes, it matters greatly if you’re planning on saying your vows outdoors; but even if you are not, it’s still better to time your venue booking well so you have perfect weather for your big day.
- Make the venue something meaningful for you; over special for your guests – while it’s important that you think of your guests when setting a date, when selecting the venue, you and your soon-to-be souse are priority. Try and make the venue somewhere special to the two of you; rather than worry about how special it will be for your guests. After all, it is your big day…!
- Learning to adjust your guest list – no matter how much you’d hate it, you have to cut down on your wedding guest list when it’s a destination wedding. Not only will it be expensive to cater for your entire neighborhood, it will also be nearly impossible for you to find accommodation for all of them in equal quality. Not to mention the flight booking!
- Working with professionals – as much as you’d like to organize your big day yourself, if you are planning on having it away from your familiar neighborhood, it’s best if you leave the organizing to the professionals. This is especially true if it’s at some destination overseas; in which case you’ll have to use a local (to the destination) wedding planner.
- Taking the time for a pre wedding visit – once you’ve planned everything out, it’s important that you visit the venue one time (at the very least) before the actual day. Pictures can be pretty misleading; and the last thing you want is a disappointing venue after paying and planning so much on it. Like wise, it’s also a good idea to sample the food that the on-site caterer is planning on feeding your guests; just to be on the safe side.
