Destination wedding is the new panache in the wedding business. Going to a far off destination, away from the real hustle of the everyday busy life with the person you are getting married to and your dear family members seems like a unique experience of its own kind. It is generally considered as the most romantic style of tying the knot. Though it may seem like a fantasy, but it needs a comprehensive planning well in advance before booking a place to hold it.
The most important aspect of planning a destination wedding is to decide upon a location. The decision of location would have huge impact on the overall mood as well as the budget of the wedding. Since the idea is in vogue, the companies offering to arrange wedding destinations are booked well in advance, as early as 18 months in some cases. The location has to be decided based upon the ease of access by all those invited. It shall be easily approachable either by road or by air, should be well equipped and maintained.
Once the location has been sorted out, second most important factor is the timing of the wedding with respect to the season. The weather, in any case, should not be extreme for it will be irritating for all the attendees.
Making a trip to the venue selected is also vital. The aspects to be finalized in the trip are the reception places, aval of hotels in the close proximity of the venue and meeting the local vendors and service providers for the wedding. This is mainly because if quality of vendors you are seeking is not available at the destination you chose for the wedding, then you may have to import them from other cities or it may even be countries. An additional attraction in this regard is the facilitation of extra activities like golfing, boating, sight-seeing, visits to museums, etc. which may also be considered. These are completely dependent upon the budget available.
If the wedding has been planned in a far off locality, then surely you need help of a wedding planner to look after certain arrangements, if not all. Many resorts offers hiring of a wedding planner at their own expenses. If the destination you chose do not have a wedding planner in the offering, then surely some budget may also be allocated for him as well.
The final decision of selecting a destination for the wedding should have input from your close and dear ones so that they can actually standby you at the time of the wedding. The destination wedding may be the most romantic way of tying the knot but it surely isn’t the easiest to manage as compared to those arranged at local places. Preparing a checklist of all to-dos highlighted above is a must and finding your way to know how to go about them is also equally significant. It may be hectic by the end of the ceremony but it surely is the most quixotic way to pronounce a man and a woman as husband and wife.
