Destination Wedding Planning Tips For You

Destination Wedding Planning Tips

 

Are you considering a destination wedding? We are here to share what we learned from wedding planners from around the world to help you come up with a few ideas to make planning a little easier.

The first thing is research. Every country has different legal requirements. Some have a grace period; you have to be in the country for a couple days before you can actually legally get married. Some have different types of people that can legally marry you. Some do allow civil ceremonies. It’s very, very important that you find out what each country’s legalities are, and then you follow suit.

In terms of wedding size, the ideal size for a destination wedding is what you feel comfortable with. How much time do you want to spend with everyone? Personally, for a destination, because remember everyone has to get there and get back, I’d say around 100 people is appropriate.

The interesting thing about destination weddings is clients often think it’s going to be the budget option, when actually it’s just the converse. While food and beverage and certain things may be less expensive in the destination they’ve chosen, by the time you figure out bringing in china, glass, silverware, floral, it’s gonna be much more expensive than doing it in a hotel ballroom.

Got Bulk? No Problem!

Start with the bulkiest items. Stuff shoes with small items like resealable plastic bags filled with socks and underwear. Then, place individual shoes along the edges of the case. Belts can also be laid along the edge. Fill in gaps with the smallest rolls of clothing- things like t-shirts and camisoles. Larger items like jeans, jackets and dresses should then be laid in flat layers, and packed in an overlapping layer formation. If there are gaps around the edges, take these flat-laying clothes and tuck them into the sides. A bonus tip for blazers and other lined clothing is to pack them inside out, to help avoid wrinkles. You’re doing great so far with light, space-saving packing, so don’t get weighed down by toiletries and other extras! Save empty travel-size bottles to refill and use on trips over and over again. This saves space and time, and is good for the environment.

 

Prevent Products From Leaking

To avoid leaks and spills in your suitcase, place a square of plastic wrap over the bottles before closing the cap. Empty prescription bottles are also great for things like cotton swabs.

Place another sheet on top, then seal, roll, and pack away somewhere safe. A great tip for keeping earrings together is to secure them through the holes of a button. This way, they can be tossed into your cosmetic bag and still be super easy to find!
