Where To Start When Planning A Destination Wedding

The Destination Wedding Planning Checklist

If you have decided to have a destination wedding, there’s still plenty to do. The good news is that you aren’t on location to worry about all of the little details. You can hand those plans off to a wedding planner and just enjoy your engagement and look into dresses and other important items. But before you do that, you have to start planning the destination wedding. Use this checklist to get yourself to the point where you have hardly any worries to deal with.

Item 1: Choose A Location

Of course, the very first thing you have to do when you are planning a destination wedding is to choose a general location. Do you want to get married in California? What city? Any specific ideas? Once you choose a city and state for your destination wedding, you can get venue location ideas. Part of the venue will be determined by the overall location you choose while others will have a huge variety.

Item 2: Choose A Wedding Venue

Once you have a location in mind, you can then look at the wedding venues in that area and make a choice as to what’s right for you. If you want to have a beach wedding, or a wedding overlooking the beach from a cliff, look for venues to match those preferences. Make a list of the things you want and the wedding venue that is right for you might stand out in an obvious manner.

Item 3: Work With A Wedding Planner

Having a destination wedding is great because you don’t have to worry about all of the little details that can aggravate engaged couples during the planning process. You aren’t on location so there’s really only so much you can do. Instead, you will work with a wedding planner, give them your ideas and needs and then let them arrange the ceremony for you. Once you arrive on location, everything is ready to go and you are happy and relaxed and ready for your big day.

Item 4: Work On Invitations

It can be limiting to have a destination wedding because there are only so many people who will want to travel a long distance for your ceremony. This can be a good thing, too, because you don’t have to try to explain to family members or friends why they aren’t invited to your wedding. It’s all obvious when it’s a destination wedding. Work on inviting those closest to you so you can have an intimate ceremony in a special location.
