PLANNING THE IDEAL DESTINATION WEDDING
Planning the ideal destination wedding, destination weddings are hugely popular, and a large number of the weddings taking place in Melbourne every year involve people from out of state or even from another country. Whether your destination is a Melbourne wedding venue or someplace else, here are some tips to help you plan the perfect destination wedding.
PREPARE FOR PROBLEMS
Currency issues, language barriers, miscommunication, and unfamiliarity with the destination are just some of the issues that are going to arise with your destination wedding. Be prepared for a few snafus, and you’ll get through the destination wedding sanity intact.
ALLOW FOR PLENTY OF PREPERATION TIME
Make sure to plan the wedding well in advance, and book EVERYTHING long before the day of the wedding. When it finally comes time for the big day, make sure to travel to the destination a few days in advance to make sure all is prepared. Planning the Ideal Destination Wedding
MAKE IT EASY
Your guests are probably spending anywhere from $400 to $1,500 just to arrive at the wedding, plus there’s the cost of food, lodging, transportation, and all the rest. Try to help absorb some of the costs by providing transportation, organizing airport arrivals and departures, and even consider showing the guests around town yourself.
BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR VENDORS
You’re unfamiliar with the destination, but there are many ways you can find out about the best, most reputable vendors for your wedding. There are many vendors that will try to take advantage of out-of-towners, so make sure to be very careful when selecting your caterers, entertainment, and other vendors
UNDERSTAND THE MARRIAGE LAWS
You want the marriage to be legal, right? Make sure to do your research BEFORE the big day, and find out what you need to do to make it a legally binding wedding. Thankfully, you’ll find most destinations offer services to walk you through the process.
WHY NOT CRUISE?
If you want a great travel wedding, why not get married on a cruise? It’s definitely cheaper than flying across the world, and you still get to see the sights on board a ship. Planning the Ideal Destination Wedding
CHECK THE WEATHER
There’s no way to guarantee that the weather will be pleasant on the day of your wedding, but you need to know what to expect before you book the wedding venues. Some countries experience extended rainy seasons, while some countries have very long winters. Do your weather research to know when the best time of year is to book your wedding.
COMBINE THE HONEYMOON AND THE WEDDING
The beauty of a destination wedding is that you can simply stay in the country where you got married and enjoy a honeymoon there. It’s much cheaper than traveling for a honeymoon, and you’ll be able to see more of the sights and sounds of the country where you finally tied the knot.
