Initially the prospect of planning a wedding abroad may appear slightly daunting and there may be times along the way when you wonder what you’re getting yourselves into! However we believe that with our help we can make it possible.
With a little bit of research and careful planning you will be able to create the wedding of your dreams.
When getting married abroad, your wedding often becomes more than just one day. Many couples make the most of having all their guests in the one location and carry their wedding celebrations over a number of days.As a result extra work is often required to plan these additional celebrations but this does give you the added bonus of your wedding not being over in the blink of an eye. You may also find the additional celebrations are just as memorable as your wedding day itself.
1. Book early
Have a long engagement! Popular locations can be booked up 18 months in advance. As soon as you’ve booked the venue, send out your save the date cards and this gives everyone good time to get organised. Your guests will need as much information as possible on the save the dates, date to book of time and additional days, temperature so they can organise outfits, flight and accommodation information so they can get booking. Car hire will also be useful.
2. Visit the venue
This may not be possible for everyone. It would make a lovely romantic holiday for you both. You will be inspired by the venue and you will get a better idea of how it looks. Lastly you will get peace of mind knowing that the venue is everything you want and more.
3. Hire a wedding planner
A wedding planner that’s local to the area will be invaluable however it may not be in everyone’s budget, make sure to price around and speak to the wedding venue about it. Whether it is adding touches to table plans, fixing flowers or additional decorations, a wedding planner will take a lot of stress off your plate. You will be able to send items over to your wedding planner with us.
4. The ceremony
Different countries have different laws when it comes to making it legal. Check the laws in your venue of choice before you fully decide. in some cases you may need to get married in your country before you go.
5. The weather
Make sure to check the typical weather for the date you are booking. There would be nothing worse than for it to be monsoon season when you are expecting beautiful sunny weather.
With the most weddings abroad costing less than at home, you can spend the surplus making it more special for your guests as they will be going to extra lengths to get away.
7. Combine your wedding and honeymoon?
You can extend your wedding so that you don’t have to rush off after. Explore the entire area after your wedding. This will allow you to make it even more memorable.
8. Get the outfits right
That sweeping princess ballgown and metre-long train may be a little too warm in the sun and that strapless number may be too cold in the snow. Pick the right dress and not only will you look the part, but you’ll feel infinitely more comfortable, too. However whatever you decide don’t worry we can help you get it there. We know that wedding outfits for both male and females need additional room and extra care. So get in touch today!
9. Book extra luggage
You are ultimately going to have more luggage and don’t stress over not being able to pack it all. You can send luggage with us so that it arrives to your venue when you need it to. Contact us today for a quote or book online.
