Diva Dialogue: Planning For Your Destination Wedding

About Diva Dialogue at Wedding Paper Divas As you may have seen, we recently partnered with The Islands of the Bahamas to offer a series of Bahamas-inspired destination wedding suites. This got me thinking, specifically, about the planning process. Destination weddings are often accessible and affordable alternatives to a large-scale, hometown wedding. However, just like traditional weddings there are still a few key “must-dos” to consider. If you are considering a destination wedding, below is a destination wedding checklist (courtesy of The Islands of the Bahamas) for your reference: • Book Early: Before resorts and venues fill up on your wedding day, try to book the location at least one year in advance. Consider seasons, as rates often fluctuate throughout the year depending on your location. • Block Rooms: Secure a block of rooms for guests at your hotel of choice to help them make reservations well in advance. • Notify Guests Early: Be sure to send save-the-date cards to potential guests at least 6 months in advance so that they have time to plan their travel. • Ask for Help!: Most hotels have a wedding coordinator on staff to offer suggestions and help you secure key vendors. Coordinators can also help with extraneous wedding related events, including the rehearsal dinner. • Visit Your Venue: If possible, visit the location at least 1 or 2 months in advance of the big day for a dry run and to finalize details with any external vendors. • Get Licensed: Be sure to get a legal marriage license. Check with the country you are getting married in to make sure you have everything in order prior to the big day. We hope these tips help you get everything in order for your big day. Happy planning!
