How To's

You just got engaged, and you know you want to find the perfect far-flung destination for your nuptials, but how to start? Wedding planning is stressful enough when you can easily visit the venue or vendors; how stressful will it be if they are thousands of miles away? Here’s a few how-to’s for getting started.

 

How to choose the location? Should you opt for somewhere you’ve already visited, or a new destination? A certain location may hold special memories for a couple, and there’s an added ease in selecting somewhere you know well. However, adventurous couples should opt for somewhere new, as the bold choice captures the essence of the couple. All-inclusives can be more guest-friendly, and wallet-friendly.

 

How to decide on the invite list? First, the couple must decide if they are going to cover part of their guests’ expenses. This decision will have a bearing on the number of people on the list. Also, having a ceremony at an adults-only resort will play a role in compiling the guest list. Remember, travel needs to be planned in advance, so be sure to send save the dates earlier than normal.

 

What to serve? Picking a meal selection without sampling the food is tricky. Try to stick with popular items known to please a crowd and ask the resort for recommendations.

 

How to book? For destination weddings, it is common to book airfare and hotels through a group block arranged by the resort. Reserving a number of hotel rooms and flights for your guests ensures optimal rates. And, to relieve personal stress, arrive early and allow yourself some time to relax pre-wedding.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum. Nestled in an enclave of greenery along the city's famed Colorado Boulevard, this museum offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city outside for connoisseurs to experience the work of some of the world's most famous artists.
