Planning a destination wedding is a great way to celebrate your love in a beautiful and exotic location. If you are thinking about hosting a destination wedding, be sure to avoid the following planning mistakes:
Waiting Too Long to Plan
Since the majority of your planning time will be spent far away from your wedding location, it is important to give yourself enough time to organize all of the details. As soon as you know where you want to get married, you should start booking your venue and accommodations for your and your guests so you can be sure you have reservations when you need them. Taking care of wedding details early gives you the chance to fix any problems that might arise.
If you are planning to get married far from home, it is very important to take your time packing well. Create a checklist so you know exactly what you need to put into your suitcase. Take special care packing the wedding dress and the groom’s attire to ensure that they are in pristine condition when you get to your destination. If you are worried you might forget to pack something, you might want to put one of your more reliable guests in charge of bringing it to the destination.
Planning Too Many Activities
Although your friends and family want to spend time with you and your new spouse when they travel for your wedding, they might also want to enjoy the destination a little bit on their own. Instead of creating packed itineraries of group activities, try to give your guests some free time so they can really enjoy their trip.
