Top Things to Consider for a Destination Wedding – Planning a Magical Day

Looking to make your wedding celebration truly special? Then consider a destination wedding at an enchanting location be it beside soft sandy shores or amidst inspiring mountain vistas. To help you plan such a memorable occasion, here are some of the key things to keep in mind.


Find the Right Destination

When it comes to a destination wedding, it generally means an outdoor setting. Often, such locations tend to be in another country which offers new and enchanting backdrops for you to tie the knot. Once you have decided what kind of setting you prefer, go through the different countries you can have such a wedding; keep in mind that in some, the ceremony will be more symbolic than legally binding. For those interested in beach weddings, nations like the Maldives are ideal since resorts are on private islands.


Make the Wedding Budget

As married couples are bound to tell you, coming up with the wedding budget is a vital step which can cause a lot of stress at times! For a wedding in another country, you will need to account for added costs such as airfare, accommodation, transport, etc. However, also keep in mind you get special offers which provide great savings and benefits too. For example, in theMaldives, destination wedding packages are available at certain resorts which cover everything from the ceremony and wedding cake to the décor, romantic dining and more.


Select a Suitable Hotel or Resort

Ideally, the hotel or resort you choose to stay at should also be where you are going to have your wedding; this will make your life easier on the day of the ceremony. An added benefit is that such properties including those in the Maldives belonging to hospitality brands such as Adaaran Resorts not only offer packages for couples but a dedicated wedding co-ordinator too; they will ensure that everything is set-up just the way you want and ready for when you arrive and can even organise traditional wedding ceremonies.


Consider When to Hold the Wedding

Another important thing to consider is when you are going to hold the wedding. What you need to keep in mind is that when it comes to foreign destinations, especially tropical nations, you will get monsoon seasons. Of course, it won't rain all the time, but if you have planned a beach wedding, for example, you do want to enjoy the best possible weather during what is normally the peak season. Also, keep in mind the rates, as well as airfare, will also differ from season to season.


Start Planning the Honeymoon

The great thing about travelling to another country for a destination wedding is that you can start the honeymoon straight after! Consider staying at a resort that offers special accommodation for newlyweds as well as diverse experiences. In the Maldives for example, some properties offer overwater honeymoon villas which are ideal along with added elements to make a getaway more memorable; these can include sunset cruises, spa treatments for couples, romantic beach dining, excursions to deserted islands and lots of water sports too.
