Making Your Dream Destination Wedding Come True



Who would not want to stage a wedding, a very important milestone in one's lifetime, in a scenic spot away from home? A destination wedding is a dream for many couples, but only a few go ahead with it. The moment they take a peek into the budget allocation to make it come true, they wake up from their dream instantly.

The Expenses That Go Into Planning

One thing that can put you back to building your dream destination wedding again and believe that it can happen is that even traditional weddings could cost a lot of money these days. Every aspect of the big day, from the caterer and the florists to the videographers, couture, and the makers of custom design wedding rings, may command hefty price tags.

If you are to set your wedding miles away from home, you will probably need to make only a few adjustments here and there to make ends meet.

For example, you can cut the number of guests you will fly into the destination and stick to just the most important people in your life. Streamlining your guest list also means you have fewer people to feed, a smaller venue to book, and will need lesser of everything.

In the end, a destination wedding could even become a cheaper alternative. Here's how:

  • Set a budget early in the planning stage. It is very important that you know exactly how much you can expend for the wedding, so you can be realistic with every choice that you make.
           
  • Study your destination carefully. Like any tourist spot, your destination would have high and low seasons, which can make a huge difference in the price of most elements of your wedding.
           
  • Booking early can also allow you price cuts here and there. So, once you are decided that you are firm about holding the wedding in a particular destination, start scouting for the lodging and dining options and look for big discounts.
           
  • Let those in your guest list know as early as possible that they are invited and include all the details in your pronouncement. This will help them prepare and do everything they can to join you on your special day. It would also be wise to stick to your guest list when building your entourage.
           
  • Cut down on several features to have something more to allocate on other things. If you fancy stylish, custom-designed wedding bands, you may ask your jeweler for a cheaper material to be used to save some money without compromising the quality.
A destination wedding is not for everyone. But it's not really about the budget. It is not for those who want to be on top of the entire planning process. It is not for those who have a huge guest list that's difficult to trim for fear of hurting their feelings. It is also not for those who will feel upset if someone they invited did not make it to the destination. But if you feel cool about "come what may" on your wedding day, go ahead; follow your heart and make your dream destination wedding a reality.
