Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and all brides/grooms want the day to be perfect. For some, that means booking an exclusive destination wedding. You don’t have to travel to create a destination wedding setting. When a strict budget is a factor, choose a local venue and create the scene inside to transport you to your fantasy destination.
Visit Potential Venues
Don’t just look at virtual tours and brochures to choose your destination wedding location because seeing it in person helps you vision your day better. You’ll also be able to see the flaws of the location that may be a deal breaker, such as not enough privacy or security for your special occasion as an example. It is important to visit the potential venue at different times of the day to see what the atmosphere is like. This will help you determine if the setting is ideal.
Create a Location Must Haves List
When working with a wedding planner, he or she will be able to help select ideal venues if you provide a must haves list. This list should include all of the amenities, services and aesthetics that you require for your day to be perfect. You should also include a few items that are not wanted to ensure that your time is not wasted viewing locations that do not fit your request.
View Available Packages
Some destinations will offer wedding packages. You may see Atlantic City beach wedding packages advertised, as well as other destinations such as Palm Beach and Las Vegas. You can often customize these packages to ensure that your day is perfect and that the venue mimics your dream wedding destination if that dream wedding is out of the question.
Compromise with your Spouse-to-be
You and your spouse-to-be likely have entirely different ideas about what type of wedding you want. It is important to compromise because the day isn’t just about the bride, there are two parties involved and both likely have an idea of what they’d like their wedding day to be like. Make sure that elements from both parties are incorporated into your destination wedding.
Planning a wedding is stressful and can cause arguments between a couple. When the stress gets to be too much, take a break from wedding planning and plan a weekend getaway to relax. If necessary, plan several. These little getaways, even if it is just a couple of towns over, can help make your day as perfect as you’ve always imagined it would be.
