Checklist For Your Destination Wedding

May 24, 2008
Every couple will agree that it will take some time to plan for a wedding. In fact, you can find various tips of wedding planning out there. You can get information from bridal magazines. You may also be able to learn more about different tips on wedding planning on the internet.

However, all these tips are mainly on a relatively traditional wedding. Most of them do not apply if you are going to plan for a destination wedding. To these end couples who are planning for a destination wedding may need some other tips and guides. Let us discuss some of the important issues you will need to consider at different times.

Of course the first thing you need to do is to consider the date of your wedding. And you have to do that about a year before your wedding. You will also need to think about the destination. To this end you will start considering your wedding theme. As a matter of fact, your wedding theme should match the destination. Another thing you need to ask is the legal requirements for getting married in the destination.

It is also very important to send your save-the-date note at least six month before your wedding. It is because your guests will need to arrange the air tickets in advance if they are going to attend your wedding. You may not need to order the save-the-date note from some wedding invitation vendors. Instead you may try to contact your guests via emails so that you can send your save-the-date note efficiently.

You will need to make the final decision on your wedding venues four months before your destination wedding. In most cases you will try to hire local wedding planners in the destination. You will also need to start contacting these local planners. Since you will not be in the destination to arrange for your wedding, you will have to rely on the wedding planner to help you to arrange. The planner should be able help you to negotiate with other wedding vendors. Another thing you need to consider four months before your wedding is your wedding invitations.

You will probably need to confirm nearly all the details for your wedding two months before. You will also try to send the invitations out. If you are going to purchase your wedding dresses and shoes in your local bridal stores, you will need to order them at this time.

If you are going to have your honeymoon in the same location as your destination wedding, you will need to prepare for it a month before your wedding. You may need to think about your itinerary. You will also need to prepare for the clothing for your honeymoon. It is also very important for you to think about the insurance at this point. You should try to contact your local insurance company for the advices on the insurances.

If it is possible, you will try to arrive the location of your wedding about a week before your wedding. You will need to meet your wedding planner and try to fix all the details which have not been fixed.
