Things To Consider When Planning Your Destination Wedding

Of course, there are some things that you should consider when you are planning your wedding and here, we are going to tell you about some of these. Keep reading to hear what we have to say.

The Location

The first thing that you need to consider when you are planning your destination wedding is the location that you are going to jet off to. Some people like to choose a destination that they have never been to before while others have already visited somewhere that would be perfect for a wedding. 

One of the most popular things that people are doing for their destination weddings in 2019 is having a wedding in Mykonos. This island is full of sun, sea and sand and it can make the perfect wedding destination. You’ll have plenty to do there and you can even stay on afterwards and island hop for your honeymoon.

The Legality

Something that you really should spend some time researching is the legality of your wedding when you are doing it abroad. You will find in a select few places that your wedding will not be something which is legal in your home country if you do not go about it in the right way. It is always useful to do some extra research and find out about how to get your marriage certificate and ensure that your wedding is going to be made legal on the big day.

Where You’ll Stay

Planning a wedding is tricky enough when you are getting married at home but when you decide on a destination wedding, there are so many other things you need to consider. If you are planning on flying your family and friends out to Mykonos, for example, you’ll need to make sure that you all have somewhere to stay. You’ll also need to make sure that this is near to the wedding venue whether that is on the beach or in a villa somewhere. This might be the ideal accommodation for your wedding if you are planning on jetting off to Mykonos and need somewhere for your guests to stay.

The Food

The food that you have at your wedding is one of the most important decisions that you’ll have to make. You need to make sure that you are choosing something that is suitable for your entire guestlist and you’ll also need to make sure that you are finding out about any kinds of allergies or food intolerances

When choosing the food for your destination wedding, you’ll have a much harder decision to make. You’ll need to find a local caterer and decide whether you want a traditional wedding meal or one that is more traditional in that country. 

For example, if you were heading to Spain you might want paella or you might even go for some mezze in Greece.  Think carefully about your food and don’t forget to head over to try it beforehand.

The Photographers and Videographers

One thing that couples often overlook is the availability of photographers and videographers in the area. For example, if your dream destination is a beach wedding in San Diego, make sure that you’ve booked a San Diego wedding videographer and/or photographer beforehand. This will save you from headaches and delays come wedding day.

The Weather

Finally, you should make sure that you are considering the weather when you are planning your destination wedding. If you are going to be flying out to somewhere that is sunny then you’ll need to make sure that your clothing is suitable for this. A long wedding dress and a three-piece suit might not work well for a hot climate so this is something to consider. Take a look at the weather and factor this in to all of the decisions that you are making including the outfits and the location of the actual ceremony.

Final Verdict

If you are someone who likes to travel the world then a destination wedding might just be the perfect thing for you and your partner. There are so many things to consider but if you spend some time planning every aspect then you can be sure to have a great day abroad with all of your friends and family.

Remember to take a closer look at the location and consider the places that your guests will be staying. Hopefully, you’ll get everything sorted out in time and you’ll have a wedding that you can remember forever.
