Though getting married on a sandy beach in the Caribbean or at a French Chateau in the South of France sounds magical, planning a destination wedding can be very overwhelming! Here are a few tips on how to make planning your destination wedding a little bit easier!
2. As most destination wedding ceremonies take place outside, you will want to make sure your guests are comfortable during the ceremony. A great option is providing a parasol or handheld fan which will keep your guests cool and is a nice keepsake!
3. We find hair and make up to be one of the more challenging aspects of a destination wedding. Whenever possible it is best to do a trial with the local options early on in your planning process. Even if the exact hair style or make up look changes closer to the wedding a trial early on will allow you to evaluate their skill set and decide if it is worth bringing someone in for the weekend. Unlike other vendors that have a lot of stuff, hair stylists and make up artists easily travel to any destination
4. Don’t honeymoon at the same resort as your wedding. Many of your guests will choose to extend their trip beyond your wedding weekend and while you love your family and friends you don’t want your honeymoon to feel like a family reunion. If you want to stay in the same destination at least consider switching resorts so you can enjoy some alone time as a married couple.
