What's involved in planning a destination wedding?

Congratulations! It's wonderful that you have decided on a destination wedding. You're probably asking yourself, "What do I do next?" Consider the following:

  1. Decide on a destination.
  2. You'll need to consider several factors when choosing a destination. What type of environment do you envision for your day? A Caribbean beach? A Hawaiian waterfall? Or a historic chapel? What type of weather can you expect? If you're dreaming of a Caribbean beach wedding, you won't want to plan your ceremony during hurricane season (June- November). If you are planning a legal ceremony, you'll need to research the legal requirements for your particular destination. Consider travel time and costs when choosing a destination.

  3. Decide on a budget.
  4. How much do you want to spend on your destination wedding? Consider costs for transportation, accommodations, and the wedding ceremony. Do you want a reception after the ceremony? Do you want a live band? Will you host a welcome reception? How long will you stay at the resort of choice? What type of accommodations would you like while you are there? A garden view or an ocean view suite? Are you planning to cover any of your guests' costs? Consider an all-inclusive resort or a cruise to help keep costs down.

  5. Work with a Destination Wedding Specialist.
  6. Working with an expert will help take away much of the stress that comes along with planning a destination wedding. This will make it a much more enjoyable experience for you.

  8. Start planning as early as possible. Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular.
