Tips to help your destination wedding run smoothly

Destination weddings really make for wonderful memories – both for you as a newlywed couple and for your guests as well. However, destination weddings can be slightly more difficult to plan and you should always make sure that every tiny detail is well thought of beforehand.


To help you organize the perfect destination wedding, we have put together a list of tips that should make things run as smoothly as possible. Read them and keep them in mind!

The number one thing you will want to keep in mind when it comes to destination weddings is that Save the Date cards are more than an option – they are quite mandatory. The reason you should make sure to send Save the Date cards about 6 months before the wedding is related to the fact that you will want your guests to be able to take the days off and to prepare for the big day as well (even if just from a financial point of view).
Also, you should make sure to provide your guests with all the indications on how to get there. If you want to avoid the hassle of picking up every guest from the airport or bus station, you could try to search for a wedding venue/hotel that provides you with shuttle bus services as well.
Since your guests have come a long way to be part of this important day in your life, you should also remember to offer them some welcome baskets. They can contain fruits, small favors or whatever you find suitable. Whatever it is though, put a lot of love and a warm “thank you and welcome” in them!
