Having a destination wedding is a truly stunning idea, especially if you are charmed by travelling, the beauties of certain places or simply by the adventurous vibe of a destination event. However, before you fully decide on this type of Big Day, it is of the utmost importance that you consider certain factors. Here are some of the most important ones:
· One of the first things to consider when planning a destination wedding is local legislation. Will your marriage be valid once you return home as well? Depending on where you live and on where you want to travel, you will find that different states and countries apply different laws when it comes to this – so it is essential that you run a research first.
· Furthermore, your guests will also be a concern. For starters, you will probably receive quite a lot of negative RSVPs. What’s more, you will have to arrange hotel rooms, make sure your guests get there in time and also make sure they will be expected with nice welcome bags at their hotels.
· Booking vendors from a distance may also seem quite difficult. If you don’t travel to your destination at least once or twice before the wedding, you will have to have your beauty trials right before the wedding day. Furthermore, you will most likely not see your venue in person before the wedding either.
· Last, but not least, you will also have to think about packing as well. Be sure you take all of your necessities into consideration and pack everything you will need on your wedding day, as well as before and after it.
