How to Choose the Perfect Destination Wedding Location

Once you’ve decided on a destination wedding, you still have the task of figuring out where that destination should be. Even if you have it narrowed down to a particular region, there are many different options available to you.

The easiest way to choose the perfect location is to work with an experienced destination wedding planner. A planner will be able to offer you suggestions for the locations that best suit your vision of your dream wedding.

A destination wedding planner can also help you find the perfect venue in that location. The right venue and the right location are both needed to have the wedding you really want.

In some cases, the type of venue you want might help determine the perfect location. This could be a matter of wanting an all-inclusive venue, a beautiful outdoor location, or something else. With this in mind, a planner will be able to save you hours or even days of internet searching and give you a much more tailored result.

There are so many beautiful wedding locations around the world, finding the one that is right for you can be a big task. To find out more about how a destination wedding planner can make this much easier for you, give us a call today!

Changing Your Wedding Date

As you plan your destination wedding, you will most likely send guests a save the date card. If you’ve already sent this out, you are locked into that date. However, if you have to change it, it might be possible.

There are many reasons why you might need to change the date of your wedding after sending out the save the date cards. With a destination wedding, most of your guests will wait until the formal invitation to begin booking their travel and accommodation. They may need the specific details that wouldn’t be included in a save the date card.

Because of this, there is less risk that changing the date will disrupt the plans your guests have made. However, it can still create problems. If they have scheduled time off work to attend your wedding, they might not be able to change this.

If you do need to change the date, let your guests know as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you send out the invitation. Instead, notify them by phone or in person. You should also be prepared for them to be unable to attend on the new date, even if they have said they would attend after you sent your save the date.

Planning a destination wedding can be full of challenges, but the rewards make it all worth the effort. It is all easier when you work with an experienced destination wedding planner, though. To find out what we offer, give us a call today!
