Destination Wedding Guide Part 2

Updated: Apr 13



Imagine the most beautiful day of your life. Now imagine the most beautiful destination for your wedding. Planning this is hard work but like the saying goes work hard, play harder. To accomplish something spectacular start early to plan for your destination wedding. Choose a destination that best suits your budget and remember to also think of your guests who are attending, especially the wedding party. Attending a destination wedding takes much more planning so give them extra time to ensure they can attend your special day. You wont please all your invitees, so take into consideration those most important to you. Remember a beach wedding is the most popular of destinations so once you have decided where you are going, book as soon as possible to not be disappointed.


The dress

Usually a destination wedding means a beach so its more than likely to be very hot. We need to find that hot sexy dress to match. It should not be only stunning, but also a softer fabric to comply with the temperature. Something you don’t want in a heavy fabric like a satin or taffeta. Chiffon, a light lace or crepe is a great choice of fabrics for warmer weather. La Perle style LP20209 Cami or L’amour style LA8240 Mirai. Walking into a bridal boutique with ideas is a great help for the bridal consultant to find the dress of your dreams. To make the process easier we have created the ultimate guide to choosing your prefect wedding dress.


Location

There are many places to have a destination wedding and the location does not necessarily need to be at a beach. Sometimes a bride may choose a wedding venue in the mountains and have the ceremony in a barn, with guests staying at the on-sight cabins. Imagine the beautiful scenery for your wedding pictures, having the most incredible natural backdrop. If you do decide beach wedding destination depending on the size of your party, you can have a villa rental or a few suites to accommodate your guests. Some villas come along with staff to add to that added luxury. Remember you will be spending time with your friends and family so think of some ideas of making fun memories. You could give everyone a special gift like a t-shirt with team his and team hers. If you need help, working with a travel agent can make things easier.


Food

At most destination locations there are wedding party planners to make up your food menu. You could have a beach party or an outdoor BBQ depending on your budge. You could have an after the ceremony party on the beach, something casual but lots of fun with hamburger sliders and seafood skewers along with special signature cocktails. A fresh fruit table along with a cupcake display and ice lollies to keep you cool throughout the day. How about a breakfast brunch for the final day to say thank you and your goodbyes? This would be a good time have a group photo for a special memory of your wonderful destination wedding.
