Tips for planning your destination wedding

March 27, 2014 |

Planning that perfect destination wedding is all the rage right now. For starters, destination weddings are often less expensive than traditional weddings. Also, many couples love the idea of transitioning right into their honeymoon in a beautiful place, rather than having to sleepily head to the airport and take a long-haul flight after the nuptials.

If you’re planning a destination wedding that will double as your vacation getaways, here are some expert tips to make planning stress-free and efficient:

Be timely

Like traditional weddings, it’s good to plan your destination wedding one year to a year and a half in advance. This is a great idea for many reasons. First, this will give your cherished guests ample notice so they can begin saving up for the trip if necessary. Additionally, this will give you plenty of time to make a site inspection, which resorts like Sandals and Charisma allow. During a site inspection, you travel to your destination and check out a few locales – resorts, beaches for the ceremony and other attractions. This gives you a great feel for the place and allows you to make decisions with all of the information you need. It’s also a good idea to stay at one of the resorts or hotels you’re considering!

Bring in the professionals

If you need to start planning for your destination wedding but are just too busy, or it takes extra effort because you don’t speak the local language, it’s time to call in a travel planner who can help you organize and make reservations for you destination wedding. Travel planners can book group travel and ensure that all of the details are secured to make your big day and everything leading up to it a stress-free experience.
