Many trends in weddings and wedding preparation have emerged over the last few decades, but it appears that destination weddings are here to stay.
Gathering the wedding party and invited guests in a fantastic destination resort is a wonderful way to kick off any marriage. The wedding guests will cherish the opportunity to turn a wedding celebration into a fabulous holiday. Here are 4 tips from a destination wedding celebrant in Melbourne to make the most of your destination wedding.
Its Best to Travel to The Location Once Beforehand
Travel to the area and resort you are considering for your destination wedding prior to the event, if you can afford it. It’s helpful to view the exact location and surroundings in person. You can tour the resort to ensure that it will accommodate all of your guests as well as your wedding demands and desires. You can sample the cuisine, observe the service, speak with the wedding coordinator, and even observe another wedding in progress, just to get a clear picture.
You might choose a different resort once you go there. You can always acquire a day pass to other resorts for approximately $150 bucks and check them out as well. For activities and expeditions you want accessible for your guests to experience, you may or may not prefer the local region where the resort is located. It is encouraged that you hire a destination wedding planner to help you find the appropriate destination and resort, arrange travel, and schedule a meeting with the wedding coordinator so you may meet with him/her and scout the venues.
Why Not Try Out a Symbolic Ceremony?
When you marry in another country, there are plenty of legal formalities associated with it. Typically, you get a certain amount of time to be legally present in the nation where you plan to marry. The normal turnaround time is two to three business days, including all paperwork. You can save all the paperwork by being married at a JOP, and then bringing your marriage license with you to the resort, where you can get married with a “symbolic ceremony,” which feels exactly the same!
It is suggested that you hire a wedding celebrant and planner to assist you in assessing the legalities of getting married in the countries you are considering. When it comes to anniversaries, you can choose between a legal and a symbolic date, or both, as some couples do. They usually do something little and private for one anniversary date and something grander for the other.
Always Keep the Wedding Dress With You
Allowing your dress to be checked out as luggage is never a good idea. There are far too many things that can go wrong, and have gone wrong. Your dress should be stored in a garment bag and folded if necessary. In first class, certain airlines will enable you to hang your gown. If you ask a flight attendant, they will most likely be sympathetic to your wishes, especially if you are planning a wedding.
Have All the Guests Stay at the Same Resort
Try to persuade everyone to check in at the same resort if possible. This will make your life so much easier! When everyone is at the same place, it’s much easier to perform group activities, spend more time with family and friends, and cut down on unnecessary costs for guests who may be staying elsewhere. Guests who wish to visit your resort but are not staying there will typically have to pay a day pass price as well as transportation charges to travel to your resort every day.
A skilled civil wedding celebrant or planner in Melbourne can help you acquire a fantastic group pricing and choose a resort that will suit everyone’s needs while staying inside everyone’s budget.
