Organising a wedding really does take some doing - which you’re sure to already know if you’ve started planning your own big day. There’s a huge amount to sort out, a staggering number of decisions to make and all sorts of people to consider in the planning - so it’s no surprise if it feels a bit overwhelming at times.
And if you’ve decided you’d like to have a destination wedding, there will be even more decisions you have to make, matters you wouldn’t even have to think about if you were having a wedding at home.
Firstly, you’ll need to accept the fact that there will be some people who can’t make your wedding, whether it’s because of the costs involved, issues with travelling or family obligations that mean they can’t take sufficient time off.
As such, it makes sense to try and make it all as cost-effective for your guests as you can so you know the maximum number of your friends and family will be able to make it. Letting them know your plans as far in advance as possible is perhaps one of the most important decisions you can make so it will give them enough time to plan and save up.
Try and visit your venue in advance before you book it and again a few months before the wedding so you can finalise everything.
And perhaps most importantly, make sure that you pick the right wedding dress and bespoke wedding veils to suit your choice of destination… a big princess dress might work well at a country church in the UK, but would it do well on a beach?
