Want your wedding to be the one your guests talk about for years to come? Here are some tips for throwing a destination wedding everyone will love!
One of the first fun and exciting steps in your planning process is creating a customized wedding website that is designed just for your wedding. Details like the wedding location, booking information, and welcome letter for your guests are great to include so they know what to expect. Keep the website simple and easy to navigate by including just the pertinent information. Too much is overwhelming to guests. The purpose of the wedding website is first and foremost, a place for guests to book into your wedding group, but including some personal information and photos of the two of you really personalizes the experience for guests.
Give your guests a chance to settle in before throwing them into the hustle and bustle of your wedding day. A welcome party is an excellent way to greet your guests and set the tone for your destination wedding. After all, that is why you were looking to get away, isn't it? So, invite your guests to kick back, have a drink, and stay a while.
Go the extra mile and put together some welcome bags for your friends and family to pick up at the hotel's front desk upon check- in. Fill the bags with an official itinerary, resort map, water bottles, snacks, small gifts – maybe even a cute welcome note from you and your SO. This gesture will help your guests feel right at home and appreciated.
Work with your travel agent and wedding coordinators to ensure that not only your wedding is amazing, but the experience for your guests are as well. Be considerate not to book around holidays or dates that would be of conflict for everyone. Also, price is an important factor for most people, so consider coordinating a time of year that appeals to everyone's budget.
Make sure to do the research for your guests. A lot of all-inclusive resorts have activities that run throughout the day, so if you suggest one or two group activities for them to get involved in, they'll have the perfect balance of activity time with the group, and downtime alone, as well. Your wedding coordinator will be a huge source of information when it comes to lining up fun and unique activities for your wedding guests.
