Planning your dream destination wedding can be confusing and often overwhelming. There are many pieces to consider when planning. Small but important details that can easily be overlooked throughout the process.
Here are four mistakes to avoid when planning your destination wedding that will leave your guests talking for years to come!
1. Not having the right team- The number one mistake that couples planning a destination wedding make is failing to hire the right wedding planning team. All-inclusive resorts offer very little guidance in planning until one month prior to the actual wedding. Having the right team, like Salt & Bash, can help you navigate through the process seamlessly.
2. Listening to the wrong people- Planning a wedding makes your closest friends and family excited which can often lead to unintentional misdirection. Destination weddings are unique events that are planned differently by country, resort, and resort package.
3. Failing to consider hidden costs- Flower upgrades, bridesmaid gifts, overweight baggage; these are all common costs that couples fail to consider when planning their destination wedding. These costs can easily add-up without the right guidance.
4. Not having a plan- Benjamin Franklin once said, “failing to plan is planning to fail.” Start by writing down a plan of attack to include every piece of your wedding. Don’t forget about the cocktail hour, after-wedding brunch, and the rehearsal dinner.
