The temptation to plan the wedding far away is so exciting for brides: there’s something really special in having a marriage somewhere that has a holiday vibe like a white sand beach or a city of art, for example.
So if you’re taking into consideration planning a destination wedding, there are several things you should know about before arranging to say your “I Dos” in a country so far from home.
Here things to know before planning a destination wedding far away
1.You must add travelling costs to your budget
If you think scheduling a destination wedding may save you money — you’re wrong. Having a destination weddings means adding up some costs , especially if you’re planning to go to another country or a very remote area, due to travel costs above all.
2.You may have a short guest list
Asking guest to travel and reach you somewhere in the world can be a hard issue: not everyone will be able to do it for the wedding. At the end you may have a small guest list, don’t take it personally.
3.You should opt for the right timing
Choosing the right season is a must: when you set a date, be warned. Opting for a country so far from yours, keep yourself informed about climate.
4.Guests may need a Passport
If you choose to set the wedding out of your country, be sure to give your guests the right advance notice, in case any of them need to apply for a passport or, worst, for a visa. Sometimes bureaucracy may be slow.
5.It can be hard
Since you are not familiar with the area you can’t just hop in the car and go and find the wedding venue or visit a vendor to find the most suitable one. Maybe you need to plan a visit or two before the event and this could be tough. Hiring a local wedding planner is the best way to save you from stress!
