When selecting your location, be sure you shop around for hotels in the area willing to block of rooms for your guests. Some may even negotiate a discounted group rate. You should also investigate and share with your guests what airlines offer the best rate of travel. If you are holding your wedding or rehearsal in a remote area, I would recommend that you arrange for transport to and from your event. That makes it easier for guests trying to navigate in an unfamiliar area. You may also want to coordinate and offer airport shuttles for your guests…remember they are extending themselves to participate and anything you can offer to make them comfortable will be appreciated. When planning your reception dinner I would try to stick with the basics. Plan within your budget, keep decorations to a minimum and offer the best food and drinks available. You are going to be in a dream location so enjoy the local fare and splurge on music or entertainment. Everyone is going to be in "vacation mode" and the reception should be a fun and relaxing event for all. This is the time a wedding planner would be very helpful, and if not...Read More
Destination weddings can pile on the expenses, so be sure you have a realistic budget planned, and in place, so you don’t overextend and find yourself with a negative cash flow…that could lead to a very short or non-existent honeymoon. With that in mind, be sure you a list of everything you want to include such as save the dates, invitations, wedding local (chapel, beach, etc.), reception location and menu, entertainment, flowers, photography, and decorations to name a few. Prioritize the importance of the above and spend your money accordingly. You may need to sacrifice some of your wants to pay for some of the things that fall in to your "must have" category. For example, you may offer appetizers at the reception versus a complete sit down dinner, or you may delete a few decorations and stick with beautiful flowers instead. Chances are you won’t even miss the few items that you nix from the original list! It is really important for a destination wedding that you send out save the date cards to your guest list. There are all kinds of invitation styles to choose from ranging from traditional to photo to magnets! You should plan on sending...Read More
