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.
