More and more soon-to-be-wed couples are embracing the concept of having a destination wedding. Why? Because it is expected to be easier to plan, less stressful, and has the tendency to be more intimate due to small guest count. However, is there such a thing as too much or too far when it comes to a wedding destination?
Basically, there’s really no right or wrong answer when asking about how much travel can be considered as too far or excessive. Couples who love traveling together tend to be more inclined to having a destination wedding. If you and your significant other are planning to tie the knot soon and are seriously considering having a destination wedding, below are some tips to help make planning easier for you.
Consider The Guests
Yes, it is your big day – no one can argue with that. But you should also consider the guests that you will be inviting. If you are planning to tie the knot at the top of a certain mountain, you cannot expect your grandma or grandpa to be present during your big day.
You may also have to condition yourself that there’s a big chance that you cannot have the best of both worlds – you can’t get married in The Alps expecting all of your family members to be there (unless you actually live there). The best solution to wanting to achieve your dream destination wedding being willing to compromise.
Pre-Wedding or Post-Wedding Celebrations
As mentioned earlier, compromise is the key to achieve your dream destination wedding. That said, you can opt to have a pre or post-wedding celebration to spend time with guests who cannot go to your destination wedding.
One of the most common reasons why some couples want a destination wedding out of the country is that they are from two different countries. This usually means that guests from either side of the couple are already expecting a different celebration for each location.
At the end of the day, it is your wedding and you will always have the last say. Just make sure that you consider not only your wishes but the comfort of your guests as well.
