Planning Destination Weddings
Having the perfect wedding day is a dream for so many couples. It’s a moment in life that deserves to be celebrated with family and friends, and should be remembered as a day of laughter, joy, happiness, and everything in-between. While some weddings will take place in more traditional venues such as churches, couples can also plan out destination weddings. While there are any number of reasons why a couple would want to have this experience, there are a still a few important aspects of planning that can’t be overlooked in the midst of the excitement.
A Venue To Say “I Do”
Choosing the right spot for your destination wedding is going to be the first (and probably most important) part of the planning process. For example, for couples who live in areas of the country that are normally much colder during the winter, they might want to have a beach wedding during in a tropical climate as a way to not only escape the cold, but share the experience with their family in a memorable location. When you choose your venue, make sure you talk to the planner about levels of privacy, what local regulations look like, and what weather is going to be like at different times of the year. Even though it may be warmer year-round, winter is still going to have an impact on different climates and this could impact your ceremony.
An Event Organizer
A wedding planner will handle larger overall aspects of the wedding, but you need an event organizer to help keep things running the day of. All those minor details that provide a smooth, seamless, and magical experience get taken care of because of a dedicated team, including the event organizer. They’re going to ensure that any weding staff are in place, vendors get where they need to be on time, and other key wedding players like the officiant or the band/DJ are ready to go.
Ceremony Design and Decor
Another important component of your wedding is the design of the ceremony itself. What will your colors be? What about any overlaid floral arrangements? These are all questions that you want your planner and event organizer to have a clear grasp of (along with other smaller details). The day of your wedding will require the venue to be set up to your specifications, which is why the sooner you can get this information to the team planning your wedding, the more time they’ll have to make sure the day is as perfect as possible.
Vendors For The Reception
If you’re doing a destination wedding, a wedding planner is going to be a big asset when it comes to sourcing local vendors for the reception. Based on any specific preference (type of food, cultural requirements, religious restrictions, etc.) they will provide different options best suited for your reception. Make sure you’re also doing some research on your own and come to them with potential suggestion to make sure you get exactly what you want for your special day.
