Creating the Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding

Imagine getting married on the honeymoon. Destination weddings are romantic adventures that do just that. These tips will help you plan an unforgettable destination wedding.

Destination Wedding Location

A wedding is usually planned locally, and the honeymoon escape at an exotic location. A destination wedding plans a wedding at the honeymoon destination. You should choose an incredibly romantic venue at the location or near your honeymoon adventure. While this type of wedding is all about location, not everyone travels to the other side of the world to create it. Your adventure could take place in a nearby coastal city or romantic town. We have a few tips for creating the romantic getaway.

Choosing a Venue

Once you discover the honeymoon location, you will need to find a venue. Every wedding has a theme, even a destination wedding. Your travel location will be a significant part of developing your theme. Explore the location, architecture and foods to inspire your wedding day. Choose three wedding colors that complement each other and match your theme. Your floral arrangements should consider the season and the types of blooms from the region you envision. Get creative with your décor. Bring candelabras, elegant vases, linens, chinaware and décor to the table that convey your theme. Venues with in-house designers and planners will be able to coordinate the pieces and bring your theme to life.

Destination Wedding

On the Timeline

Destination weddings follow a similar timeline as traditional weddings. Most weddings are planned within twelve months and begin with picking a date. You should always choose your venue first. Count your guests, choose your wedding party and book your venue about a year before your wedding day. As soon as you book your venue, plan your catering, photography and entertainment. These are important details that should never be saved for the last minute. You should build your wedding team of vendors at least six months prior to your big day, including the cake, officiant and all the vendors essential to creating the destination wedding you imagine. Do not forget to plan your transportation and hotel accommodations.

Inviting Your Guests

Destination weddings come in all shapes and sizes. Regardless of the size, inviting the guests is necessary to have them there. Make sure you design your invitations and invite your guests well in advance, especially if your destination wedding requires distant travel. Your guests might need the extra time to plan the getaway. If travel is not required, you should send out invitations about six to eight weeks before the big day.
