How to Plan a Destination Weddingby Puja Sharma Content Writer
Planning a destination wedding for yourself or your loved ones? That’s a great idea as the wedding will turn out to be a memorable event not just for you or your loved ones but for your guests as well. A special occasion definitely deserves special treatment. Have you thought of which destination to look at? You could pick either one of the Goa wedding resorts or wedding resorts in Kerala for a special themed destination wedding. Wondering how to plan one? Read on for some tips and suggestions.
Choose an apt destination: Choose a destination that all parties involved agree upon. Also, a destination that means something special to the couple! So, if the couple has fond memories of Goa, how about looking at a resort there? Similarly, if the backwaters of Kerala mean a lot, then the couple could opt for one of the wedding resorts in Kerala.
Check out amenities or visit the place: Having decided on the destination, it is time to visit or at least check out the list of well-known resorts available. If you can visit the resort, nothing like it. If not, organize meetings and maybe video chats to check out the place, the amenities on offer, the themes for the wedding, seating arrangements, banquet facilities and catering, among others. Make sure you leave out no detail, be it the floral decoration or the welcome drink! Find out if the resort or hotel is willing to organize all the vendors, including the lighting/AV/camerapersons/caterers etc or would you need to pick vendors on your own. It is ideal to look for a resort that offers consultations and expertise on planning the wedding.
Consider the guest list: Be absolutely sure of the numbers so you could book accordingly. You may have to book rooms/suites for which you would need further coordination with one of the Goa wedding resorts and your guests. When you have the guest list and notify them in advance, it is easy to set the ball rolling.
Arrive ahead of your guests: If you are organizing the destination wedding for your loved ones in say, Kerala, it helps to arrive in advance to oversee the preparations. It also helps to take into account the weather so you can book either an outdoor venue or a hall for the event. If it is Goa, you might want to take advantage of the beach, especially if it’s a less-touristy white sand beach location such as Varca. It also helps to check out other facilities like the spa or the pool to make it a little special for the couple. A nice couples massage at the spa in one of the wedding resorts in Kerala would be a gift to cherish for the bride and groom!
Carry out a dress rehearsal: Don’t forget to get a rehearsal done! This includes the seating arrangements, special AV presentations such as music or video, and the entrances/exits for guests or the couple to enter so nothing is out of place on the big day.
And don’t forget to have a whole lot of fun! It is your or your special people’s wedding after all, and an ideal destination acts as the perfect backdrop to create great memories.
