Where do you want to say “I Do”?
It is not surprising that destination weddings have dominated the wedding industry for the past ten years. What used to be a novelty is currently becoming the mainstream. One in every four weddings is a destination wedding and interestingly, the Caribbean is the leading hotspot outside the U.S.
Of course, the Caribbean’s proximity to the U.S. helps, but the luxurious resorts, beautiful beaches, the exceptionally all-year-round warm weather, numerous activities, and attractions make the Caribbean a hotspot for engaged couples.
However, planning a destination wedding is tough since there are so many things to consider. This can feel overwhelming and confusing for you. But, you do not need to worry because with a little know-how, you can still plan an unforgettable getaway wedding for you and your guests.
3 Things to Consider When Planning a Destination Wedding
When settling on a destination wedding, there are a few things you should consider. Below, we share three expert tips to help you have the destination wedding of your dreams.
- Choose the Best Venue
Your dream destination wedding venue does not only determine the style and theme (beachy, sophisticated, or rusty) but also determines the time, travel and budget needed to make it a success. The elements of your wedding — even the overall vibe and the activities – should reflect your personality to ensure that the event remains engraved in the minds of your guests.
If you are planning to marry somewhere in the tropical, why not invite your family and friends to a luxurious resort in the Caribbean?
- Pick the Right Time
For most of the popular destination wedding places, the best weather coincides with the tourist season when there are more crowds, fewer venues available, and hiked rates. In this case, it is crucial that you book in advance.
If you prefer the shoulder season, you might be able to save some money. The weather might be a gamble, though. On the other hand, the off-season may have fewer tourists. Be sure to consider the weather patterns, too, such as the Caribbean’s hurricane season.
- Dress for the Weather
Consider the climate when choosing the dress code of your event. You don’t want to be sweating after rocking a woolen suit or a satin ball gown given the humidity that comes with a tropical outdoor venue. If your location is a beach, please provide your guests with heads-up on the suitable footwear to wear while you will be exchanging your vows on the sand.
Millennial is the Majority of Adults
Considering that the wedding industry is getting millenialized, the young couples want their wedding to be fully customized and personalized in every detail. This trend is new, unlike previous generations when weddings looked the same.
Given you only get married once, why don’t you make this day count and unforgettable by picking the venue you’ve been dreaming of?
