A perfect wedding is the dream of all couples and everyone deserves their fairytale ending. So, to make your wedding planning more fun and make the whole thing worth remembering, we have listed a few important factors below. If you are planning a destination wedding, there are a lot more things to keep in mind than just planning for a local wedding; starting from how to make wedding invitations.
The weather all over the world can change depending on the location. If you are planning your wedding somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, keep in mind that the seasons are reversed there. Our winters are summers there and vice versa. Find out all about the country’s weather where you are planning to get married to ensure that you have a dry weather but still cooler, and there are no problems of bugs and insects during that season.
Holidays play an important role when deciding when to marry abroad. You should know the holidays for your country as well as theirs to ensure that people can easily come to the wedding without worrying about the work schedule. Firstly, start with holidays in your own country, like Christmas or Easter. Everyone is going to have time off work by then but the flights will be much more expensive than anticipated. So, not many people will be willing to spend that much just to attend a wedding. Choose the season wisely. Secondly, for holidays in the host country, make sure no big holidays of that country are approaching; as it could disrupt your entire wedding plans in a jiffy. Crazy traffic, delaying flights and no hotels are the last things you need to worry about other than just your wedding.
- When the Tourist Season is at Peak
We all are aware that hotel prices tend to skyrocket during the pick seasons. Find out the situation in your host country and skip that season to save on meaningless expenditure. You might also get some great discounts when you will plan a wedding during an offseason.
- Health Risks
The local health risks, such as malaria in Peru or Zika in Belize are need to consider when planning a destination wedding. Understand the risks and health concerns for your guests and loved ones and then plan accordingly. Moreover, also find out about vaccines that one has to take before entering a particular country.
- Find out What Suits Your Family and Friends Best
Keeping your family and friends in mind while planning the wedding guest book will go a long way if you want all of them to make it to your wedding. Sit with the key members of your family when planning to understand what everyone is concerned about and move forward accordingly. Those who are meant to be there will make it, so don’t panic. Since you cannot please everyone, don’t worry about who is excited and who is all grumpy to travel overseas. It is a remarkable experience to have a destination wedding, so just enjoy the whole thing.
