Destination Wedding Tips – Planning
You’ve decided you want to get away and have a destination wedding! Whether it is just the two of you or inviting family and friends, you still have some planning to do.
In this series, we are going to break it out into 3 sections, planning, travel and wedding day. So in part one, planning! Here is a list of questions to discuss.
What do you like? Snow? Sand? Europe? Vegas? Mexico? Hawaii?
What is your budget? Does this destination work for your budget? How many guests?
Once you decided on a location, guest count and a budget, start researching that destination’s marriage laws, especially if overseas. If overseas, should you get married in the US and do a ceremonial ceremony?
Now where at the destination will you get married? Castle, hotel, beach or a wedding venue, start researching at 9 months before you go to secure the venue that you like. If you are the spontaneous kind call the venue that you are interested in and see what is available, the great thing with destination weddings is you can get in during the wedding.
