1. Picking the Right Location
We can help you find the ideal location for a beautiful destination wedding. It depends on where the majority of your guests are flying out from, your budget, and what you want for your wedding. If you wish to be around stunning beaches, eat fantastic food, or have lots of activities, you have to find the right area within your price range. The best part is that we will give you plenty of location options within your price range.
2. The Right Season
A pervasive mistake that people make when planning a wedding is going during peak seasons. Now, we completely understand why you would want to go during the best time of the year. There are many variables to consider when choosing the right season. We highly suggest finding a time that isn’t quite the high or low season. That way, you save money and the resort won’t be as crowded.
If you are someone that has been planning your wedding since you were young, you might have specific vendors in mind already. Unfortunately, it’s not cost-effective to bring all of your vendors where ever you decide to go. The great thing about destination weddings is that they have become increasingly more popular, so there are plenty of experienced vendors in many popular locations.
4. All-inclusive vs. Not
Now, this also depends on a lot of factors. We love suggesting All-inclusive weddings because it will save money on your wedding in the long-run. The negative side to this is that not every location has all-inclusive options. We recommend if you are planning to have a smaller wedding with a decent budget, we can make it work. We can suggest many different options for both all-inclusive and not.
