The Stress-Free, 7-Step Guide for a perfect wedding - An unforgettable ocean bash!

Planning a destination wedding in a foreign country is quite stressful. Here are some tips to plan your big day in a paradise to make your journey down the aisle an easy thing. You've found your dress, you've got your ring, start ticking off these steps. Follow these steps to plan the beach wedding of your dreams!


Layout the rough plan

As the first step before planning anything else, you and your partner need to discuss the kinds of weddings you prefer. For instance, it can be the usual way of celebrating a wedding or a fancy destination wedding amidst the backdrop of a beach or lake. It is up to you to question yourselves, whether you like a small or large gathering, vintage elements incorporate into your décor and attire etc. Prepare with at least two inspirational images about the theme, location, colour, food and activities you are planning to have.


Set your budget

This is an area where you and your partner need to be more realistic. Budgeting can be a bit daunting, but a pragmatic approach will be to make wise financial decisions as a team. Have a clear understanding of contribution from others. When you figure it out, it will ease you in preparing the overall budget. Look at your savings and decide which percentage does each of you are willing to spend on your special day. In order to minimize an over cost budget, maintain a separate spreadsheet add in a 5-10% buffer for unexpected expenses.


Select an appropriate venue

Before starting your initial planning for your destination wedding, the first thing to consider is the selection of a venue. For those who want an extra bit of privacy can book a private villa for the occasion. You don't want to turn the music down at 10.00 pm and you will hardly come across hotel guests trying to nab a canapé from the buffet. When it comes to an unforgettable Maldives destination wedding, you can consider a resort-like Adaaran Maldives offering an exceptional oceanfront setting to bring your most awaited beach wedding to life.


Find the right wedding planner

When it comes to planning a memorable wedding, it seems like an uphill task. In order to give you more confidence throughout the planning process, it is recommended to get help from the right wedding planner. While managing the whole event, a well-experienced wedding planner can easily identify the challenges and act accordingly to cut down all ins and outs. An ideal option will be to hire a team of professionals that have the resources to juggle the vendors, logistics, décor, contingency plans, and the schedule, leaving you to focus on other important things (like bubbles with your bridesmaids!).


You're not too early to start

Remember early bird catches the best memories of their beach wedding. An important tip is, don't wait until the last moment to book a hotel or resort. Never think it is too early to plan your dream wedding. Make your bookings at least six to eight months ahead of time especially if you are planning to spend time at a specialized resort. Before you begin fantasizing about your vacation, determine how much time both of you have.


Build your guest list

Keep the whole process of planning stress-free on a first thing first basis. Sit down with your partner on a relaxed date build a guest list. Write down all the people whom you would like to have at your occasion. This task is much easier when you maintain a separate excel spreadsheet.


Wedding's theme, decor, and details

Even though having a theme is not mandatory, maintaining a theme for your occasion adds to the fun and magic for you and your guests. A purely romantic setting can be created by oversized floral arrangements, pastel hues, soft lighting and satin ribbons while country chic elements can add to a traditional wedding style with a laid-back vibe.
