Here are some tips and tricks to help you as you navigate this exciting journey of planning your magical day in a magical place.
Choose your location: Having an idea of where you want to travel for your wedding is extremely helpful in starting the process! If you’re questioning exactly where to host it, don’t worry! Our Landmark Destinations team can help you narrow down your options to pick the perfect place for your big day.
Set a budget: It’s important to have an idea of how much you want to spend on your wedding, no matter the distance! Setting a budget is useful to make sure you and your significant other are on the same page with expenses to help ensure that the process is as stress-free as can be.
Guest List: Destination weddings are normally on the more intimate side, so setting a guest list with your closest friends/family early on can be extremely helpful. It is always beneficial to know an estimated number of guests you’ll have at your wedding, especially when it comes to setting up travel accommodations.
Save the dates: Giving guests enough notice for a destination wedding is crucial. Destination weddings are a multi-day event, rather than a multi-hour event, so people will need to know ahead of time to be sure they can make the proper accommodations that allow them to be in attendance.
Have an itinerary: Creating an itinerary for the duration of the trip can help you stay organized instead of overwhelmed. Knowing what appointments need to be made, while being sure to schedule time for excursions and relaxing is key to making it a successful destination wedding and getaway.
Spend time with guests: Making sure to include your guests in the itinerary can make the weekend even more special! It’s important to remember that your loved ones are traveling a long way to spend this magical moment with you. Carving out time to spend with them- such as during a welcome breakfast or an activity all together- can help everyone feel included in the wedding weekend and make it even more memorable for the couple!
Include local touches in your details: If you are getting married at a specific region, including aspects of the local sights and culture into your big day can add a new level of significance. This is a great way to pay tribute to the beautiful place you have traveled to for your special day.
