Destination Wedding Essentials

Before you decide to say "I do" to a Destination Wedding consider the details that go with planning from afar.
Are you already dreaming of the perfect tropical location or are you seeing yourself  surrounded by majestic mountains?
If having a stunning backdrop for your wedding is the most important detail for you then keep reading as we share with you our 
Destination Wedding Essentials


Wedding Decor
Picking a unique location for your wedding gives you the opportunity to have breathtaking backdrops as a part your wedding decor.
Take full advantage of the stunning natural lighting and sunsets along with natures colors from tropical plants to palm trees to willow trees!
Take every advantage of your surrounding for your Destination Wedding.


 Choose the location that feels right for you to say "I Do"
Whether it’s stateside or international there are endless gorgeous options. 
Do you picture yourself against a magnificent mountain range, against the enchanting blues
and greens of  the Pacific Ocean, or possibly against a blooming vineyard in Europe. 
Envision yourself on your day when selecting the perfect backdrop that reflects your style.

Invitations and Travel Time
When planning a destination wedding you need to consider the timing when sending out invitations,
lot's of time to book travel, update passports and book local transportation from the airport to the resort.
Making travel easy for your guests and family is a must.
Saying I Do out of the country takes research
Travel paperwork: You may need to have an affidavit of eligibility to marry in another country’s US consulate. 
Be sure to do your homework about the legality of your marriage in different countries.
The Resorts are very helpful when it comes to this, so make sure to ask them for advice.

 Guest List
If you are choosing to travel away from your home, the number of guests that follow may decrease. 
For example, having a wedding in your hometown you may invite 300 and 225 guests show up.
With a destination wedding you invite the same 300 you may only have 100 attended due to travel.
A smaller guest list makes the experience more inclusive and intimate for you and your groom.


Be Mindful of the Weather
Depending on what exotic location you choose, be sure to look into the weather patterns 
that occurs throughout the year.  You do not want to be caught in the rainy season or in the hottest time of year.
