Not only are destination weddings enjoyable for the couples, but the guests are loving it just as much! Here are some experiences we’re predicting your guests will love this year!
The Warm Welcome
The bride and groom recognize and appreciate their guests traveling all the way out to their wedding. That’s why welcome parties have become a growing trend, and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. This gives everyone a chance to get settled into the hotel and spend some time with each other before the big day. Welcome bags are also a popular trend we’ve seen in destination weddings and provide guests with everything from snacks and sunscreen, to an itinerary and map so everyone will know what to expect when they’re there.
Couples are always looking for fun ways to take their destination wedding experience to the next level. Group excursions are extremely popular for destination wedding groups, as it provides everyone not only something to do, but an experience with the couple that will be cherished forever. Popular excursions include snorkeling, archeological tours, sunset catamarans, and more.
And don’t think the fun stops there! Couples work closely with their resort coordinators to ensure everyone has something fun do in their free time. We’ve seen a lot of wedding groups partake in everything from cigar rolling and hat making, to rum tastings, cooking classes, beach bon fires, and so much more!
And of course, there will be times where you and your wedding guests will want to just chill out and relax. With that said, it’s not uncommon for your resort to have daily live entertainment, whether it’s a musical performance or show, live artist drawings, fire dancing, fireworks, etc.
In addition to a welcome party, the bride and groom typically choose to spread the wedding festivities out during the time everyone’s there. So, women close to the bride might be invited to partake in a spa day or girls’ lunch, while the guys might spend the day fishing or golfing. You also might want to include a farewell brunch as a thank you for everyone making the trip out.
