Destination Wedding Location
The location is where it all begins. This is the backdrop for every moment you plan. Plan a destination wedding where you honeymoon. While this type of wedding is all about location, not everyone travels to the other side of the world. We have a few tips for creating the romantic getaway.
Choosing Your Venue
Your wedding venue can be a blank canvas or a fully designed ballroom with all of the décor and services. The more services that are included, the easier it will be to plan a destination wedding. When exploring venues in your dream location, think about the services and designs that are included. This will be especially important if you are planning from a distance.
Designing a Destination Wedding
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 tables. Plan with a venue that has wedding designers and planners to help you coordinate your designs and bring your vision to life. All-inclusive wedding venues include exclusive décor options and services to make it all possible.
The Planning Timeline
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. Lock down important vendors, such as the catering, photography and entertainment early in the planning process. You should build your wedding team of vendors at least six months prior to your big day. A destination wedding will require special travel, transportation and lodging accommodations. Do not wait to make these arrangements.
Invitations for a Destination Wedding
Destination weddings are usually a little smaller than a traditional wedding. If guests will need to travel to an exotic location, it will trim down the guest count. Carefully plan your wedding party and guest count with the travel in mind. Regardless of the size of your destination wedding, inviting guests will be necessary to have them there. Make sure you design your invitations and invite your guests well in advance, especially if your 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.
