You finally said yes and after that, you run to every single friend and relative to announce the good news of your engagement. And suddenly you are struck by an idea: to celebrate your wedding on a travel destination! Why not? You and your partner have always loved traveling around the world, so, the idea of celebrating your wedding far away is absolutely perfect.
However, then comes the problem: how to organize an entire destination wedding away? Let’s begin with pro and cons!
First of all, sit down with your fiancée and talk about it. It is what you really want? Of course, as a bride, you have always dreamt of a fairytale wedding, and an exotic and unusual destination would be the absolute fabulous setting of your wedding. Moreover, you have to decide where you want to go and how much you want to spend. Therefore, when you finally set these priorities you can start to plan and organize the wedding.
Do you want an extraordinary destination wedding?
On the other side of the world, in places such as Bali, India or the Caribbean? Well, that is really a dream but it is also really expensive. So better think carefully about how many invitations you want to send! Maybe you want to stay in Europe, spend less and invite more friends, so think about sunny countries such as France, Italy, Spain or the island in the Mediterranean (Cyprus, especially Paphos, is a favourite travel and wedding destination). Once you decided where to go and what is your budget, you had to select among different options: which church? Which restaurant? Which hotel? So, there’s a lot to think about! Start with the function, and try to contact the parish and priest to organize the details. Search on the top travel guides for the best restaurants and hotels in your location and call them to find out whether they host weddings or not.
Finally you have to send the invitations. You have to think carefully about who can actually come and who will be unfortunately left out.
For sure there’s a lot of work to do to organize your travel destination wedding! However, the result will be amazing! Think about the beautiful landscape, the wonderful setting… All will be kept untouched in your eyes and heart and fixed forever in your photo book!
