Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things that brides often go through. But this stress can be doubled when the wedding is being hosted in another location, be it a new country or even a different city in the same country. However, these tips will surely decrease your stress and come in handy when planning a destination wedding.
Plan ahead of time
This is probably one of the most important advice that you must keep in mind when planning a destination wedding. Make sure you do your research well and find out all the details regarding the vendors that you will be hiring and check the available dates for the kitchen rental, cake decorators, hairstylist, caterer and even the venue decorator. Make sure, you make your bookings ahead of time and confirm your appointments in order to avoid disappointment at the last moment.
Do your research well
It is important to thoroughly find out all the details regarding the city where the event will be hosted. Check the weather condition during the month that you plan on having the wedding in order to avoid last minute panic when it starts pouring down on your garden event. In addition, you must ensure that check the reputation of the vendors that you are hiring and communicate with them in advance in order to make your requirements clear. It would be recommended to visit the place a few months in advance to check on all the bookings and have a trial meeting with each vendor individually to confirm all the details.
Prioritize the guests
Every event must be hosted keeping the guests comfort in mind. However, this rule is even more important when it comes to planning a destination wedding because the guests will be taking out time from their busy schedules and travelling all the way to a different city or country in order to be a part of your big day. So make sure you book a gathering venue that is enough to accommodate all the guests and ensure that the place where the guests will be staying, have comfortable rooms and all the facilities that they might need. Make sure you ask them in advance if they have any special requirements such as vegetarian food or wheelchairs or anything else.
No matter how hard you try, something or the other is bound to go wrong. So, take it easy and don’t stress yourself out to the point where you don’t have the time to enjoy your own wedding. So, make sure you enjoy yourself instead of trying to perfect every detail. Cherish these moments and enjoy your wedding thoroughly.
