Tip 1: Make the Location Meaningful

A big part of having a destination wedding is enjoying the location. You want the location to have the resources you need, but if there’s something special around it that makes it even more sentimental, that’s even better. 

Tip 2: Give Guests Plenty of Notice

Most destination weddings are planned well in advance. While it’s customary to send invitations out a few months in advance, you should let guests know what day and the location you are getting married at ahead of time so that they can plan for themselves. Consider save the date cards or something of that effect so they can calculate plane tickets and take time off for your big day. 

Tip 3: Remember Guests at All Times

Think about who you are inviting and what they need.

You might go over the packing list in your mind a few times, but it’s important to write it down, show it to a few others, and check over it more than once. Do you have everything in mind that you might need? Are there things you are leaving out that you won’t be able to get at your destination wedding location? Try to get it all organized in advance so you can think things over. Put the most essential items in a carry-on bag in case something happens to your checked luggage.

Tip 6: Tailor Clothing to the Location
