Planning for a Destination Wedding

Oct 9, 2007
Destination wedding is becoming popular nowadays since planning for such a wedding is a lot easier than that in the past. However, a destination wedding is undoubtedly different from a formal one. As a result, the way to plan for it is also different. Here are some ideas you will need to know when you are planning for such a wedding.

The very first thing you need to consider is the destination of course. In fact you cannot just choose a location by your preference since there are some practical issues you need to consider. The number one issue you need to clarify is all the legal requirements and documentations. The process involved for foreigners to get married in another country will be different in different countries. Some countries may not allow foreigners to get married there. As a consequence you need to sort out all these requirements first. You may contact the embassy of the country you are planning for your destination wedding in order to gather the information. If all the legal and practical requirements can be sorted out, you can then think of the destination based on your preference. It will be totally amazing to have your wedding in front of a waterfall. It will also be very romantic to have a wedding on a beach under the sunset.

The weather in the destination country should also be one of the considerations. For example if you are planning to have an outdoor wedding in Hong Kong. It may not be wise to plan for a summer wedding since there may be storm and typhoon during the summer in Hong Kong. Of course it will be less problematic if you are going to have an indoor wedding. However, a day without storm and typhoon is certainly better for your big day. As a result, you have to think of it thoroughly before you make your decision.

For a destination wedding, it will be suggested to hire a wedding planner. You have to book for your wedding photographer, wedding cake etc. and it will be quite difficult for you to organize all these if you are going to hire local vendors in the destination country. If you would like to hire local wedding vendors in the destination country, it will be better to hire a wedding planner there instead of hiring different vendors one by one. Some wedding planners in the place you live may also provide services for destination wedding. If you are going to hire a wedding planner in the destination country, you will probably do some research in the internet. You should bear in mind that it is not that easy to have total control on something that will happen in other countries. You need to ask for every detail and make sure you will sign a contract with the wedding planner in order to avoid unnecessary arguments.

You may also want to have your honeymoon at the same place as your wedding. You will need to have a traveling plan. If you are not going to hire a wedding planner, it will still be a good idea to consult a travel agent in order to save your time, and also probably money.
