I got married about 2 years ago, and my fiance and I really wanted to have a destination wedding. The best thing about a destination wedding is that you and your guests also get a holiday while celebrating, but there is a lot involved.
When I was researching where to go, what resorts had wedding packages and the pricing, keeping bridal party and guests in the loop, and all the normal preparations for my wedding day, I found the article linked below to be of great value.
Check out the apps, but keep reading to learn about the tips I found when preparing my own destination wedding.
Finding the Perfect Location
So, if you and your fiance agree on having a destination wedding, the first thing you need to do is come up with a list of perfect locations. This will allow you to weigh your options at each place to make an educated decision on where you want to get hitched. Once you have chatted and decided on a list of places, now its time to do some research. For instance, you’ll want to consider the time of year and whether that perfect beach location is actually in monsoon season. Another consideration is flight prices for you, the bridal party, and guests. After looking at some of these points, of course, you might want to get married in Greece, but if the price is too high for flights, you may compromise and find a beach location a bit closer to save money.
Planning & Preparation
Once you have nailed down a location, the real fun starts. Hopefully, you find the perfect resort that has a wedding package deal, if not you can search online or use apps to calculate the cost and communicate with a wedding organizer. Planning a wedding is not the easiest chore, there are so many small things to consider no matter where you decide to have the wedding. Therefore, the best way to reduce stress is to have a to-do list on your phone so you can check all the boxes once every task is completed. But, before you start hiring bands and paying for venues, set down and come up with the budget that makes you and your fiance comfortable. That way, when your to-do list starts filling up and you need to make decisions on flowers, food, or cakes, you can keep within budget by picking the best option in your range.
Keeping your Guests & Bridal Party Up to Date
Quite often, in weddings or any event with lots of people involved, information needs to be shared. For instance, from where the wedding is, to how to get there, to what time to arrive, what to wear, and much more. So, instead of answering the same questions a million times and getting calls from everyone in your family, save yourself the unneeded stress by getting a wedding app. This life-saving communication tool is a one-stop place for all the guests to find out about any and all details involving the travel, the wedding, and everything in between.
Although planning a destination wedding can be exciting and a special time in your life, it can also be stressful if you don’t go about it with realistic goals and organizational skills. Therefore, if you arm yourself with some apps that can help you create a budget and to-do list, as well as a travel app to help you decide on the destination and venue, the planning won’t be as stressful. Furthermore, apps that help you communicate with the wedding party and guests will save you a lot of repetition, texts, and phone calls. This way, no matter where you decide to say “I do” you will actually enjoy your destination wedding with fewer hassles.
