As a travel manager and former Wedding and Entertainment Sales Director at the luxury One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico, I have worked directly with many wedding planners and anxious, excited brides.
Destination weddings can be very stressful, but if you follow a few key steps, there is no reason why the vision of your perfect wedding can’t come to life, with ease.
With my experience and knowledge in booking individuals, social groups, and weddings worldwide I wanted to share some of these important steps for a destination wedding and to provide proper etiquette for inviting guests.
Getting married away from your hometown requires preplanning, and the possibilities are endless.
Deciding on the location
Is there a place that holds special memory to you? The city where you met or the first time you exchanged the “I love you” words or where he proposed. Food for thought: do you have a certain budget, can guests travel there easily, will the cost inhibit your guests from coming, what type of hotel – all inclusive or non, who’s paying, and does it require a passport? Are there any language barriers? Keep in mind the convenience and consideration of those coming to celebrate and support you on your special day.
