Who doesn’t want to get married away from the hustle-bustle of the city and make their Big Day of life no less than any occasion? It can possibly happen if you actually plan for your ‘Dream Destination Wedding’!
Planning for your dream wedding can be overwhelming and stressful if you don’t know what to expect. With Peppynite, you can easily plan your destination wedding by following some basic points given below. Here’s how you should go about planning for a wedding in an unfamiliar location.
Pick A Destination
Now, this may sound very obvious but the first step is always the difficult one. Choose a location that is not only suitable for you but for your guests as well. Though your wedding is ultimately about you and your future spouse, it’s important to consider whether or not your ceremony is somewhere your guests will happily visit, too. After all its’ them whose presence will be the most vital. If you’re working with a tight budget, pick a destination closer to home or in a city where the ceremony will be more affordable.
Less Is More
Limit your guest list to your closest kith or kin to maximize the celebrations. Less the number of people, the easier it would be for you to make accommodations. When opting for a destination wedding, make sure you don’t escort a lot of people with you. At times it can be very difficult to accommodate everything for everyone so it’s better to invite only your closed ones. And once you go back to your own city, you can host a reception party for all of the guests.
Destination weddings are pretty much expensive but if you are careful enough then it won’t be a big deal. You can avoid certain kinds of expenses by cutting off redundant material and planning accordingly. Don’t overdo in the décor department, just let the location’s natural setting and beauty shine through. The smallest expenses will creep up on you and add up to big bucks in the end if you’re not careful. Don’t let the budget overwhelm you and stick to what is important.
Hire A Local Wedding Planner
One way to make your destination wedding a hassle-free task is to hire a wedding planner of the place you are getting married at. This will take a whole lot of burden off your shoulders. The planner can help you with the accommodation of the guests, décor thing, arrangement of transportation, catering services, etc. Alternatively, find vendors and choose the ones who are not too fussed about accommodation and travel. Stick to one vendor (example: one makeup artist and her team for the whole family) and benefit from a better price.
Early Bird Gets The Worm
Hosting a destination wedding requires a lot of booking in advance. The venue, guest rooms, hotel, vendors all need to be booked before so that you have quite options to choose from plus you can avail heavy discounts. Once you are done with all the accommodations, you can spend some quality time with your loved ones before your D-Day. Buck-up! Time is ticking until the knot is tied.
Check-In Before The Wedding Day
Taking a scouting trip will give you peace of mind. It may sound like an extra expense but visiting venues and meeting the local vendors in person will result in a wedding that fits your vision. Giving a final check to everything a day before the wedding will do justice to your efforts in planning the whole event.
Nothing seems easy until it’s done. Going for a destination wedding can for sure prove to be hectic at times but it will all be worth it once you’ve tied the knot. Have a happy wedding!
