  1. Choose a qualified destination wedding travel agent

A qualified destination wedding travel specialist can take a lot of stress off of you so you can truly enjoy the planning process. Your destination wedding travel expert will help you find the perfect wedding location, coordinate with onsite wedding planners, and ensure all your guests’ travel planning needs are taken care of so you don’t have to worry about that.

  1. Select the destination wedding location that is perfect for you

The location of your wedding determines not only the mood (countryside, urban-chic, traditional, sophisticated, beachy), but also the travel, time and budget required to make your dream a reality. You want to give yourself and your guests a memorable and once in a lifetime experience.

  1. Timing is everything

Timing is everything. Please give your guests plenty of time to arrange time off from work or other priorities, get their finances and budgets in order, and obtain passports and relevant travel documents if needed. A reasonable planning time is typically 6 months to a year, but we can help you plan an amazing destination wedding in less time.

  1. Research local marriage laws and requirements

Marriage laws and requirements vary from country to country, so do your research in advance to determine the laws and requirements that will apply to you. Many of our clients get married in a small civil ceremony before leaving for their destination wedding. Your destination wedding will then serve as a beautiful destination wedding celebration with your close friends and family, and can also double as your honeymoon!

  1. Your destination wedding is your own personal holiday

Forget about being on a schedule unless it pertains to your actual wedding ceremony, so enjoy yourself! Let your wedding vendors work for you so you do not have to consume yourself with wedding details. Your job is to show up and look pretty on your wedding day!

  1. Set expectations with your destination wedding guests

Share some details about your selected wedding destination, costs, visa requirements if applicable, and other info you think they may need to be aware of. Also set expectations with them as to how involved/not involved you will be in the actual planning process, and refer them to your designated contact for all details. This will help you offload stress so you can enjoy the planning process without playing travel agent to your friends and family. We will take over that role and serve as your point of contact throughout the planning process leading up to your wedding day.

  1. Start planning today!

The planning stage is crucial and needs to be a priority, so don’t procrastinate!  It takes careful and methodical planning to make your dream destination wedding a reality.  We also need to allow time for potential unforeseen issues that may require additional planning of alternate details. The more time you allow, the better and less stressful your destination wedding planning will be.
