The first step to planning a destination wedding is choosing a suitable date to get married. When opting for a destination wedding, there's a lot to consider like the weather of the area you plan on getting married in and the timeline for your guests too. Destination weddings require plenty of planning well in advance and you have to accommodate changes in plans according to the circumstances too. Now the next most important thing to decide are destination wedding resorts.
There are a lot of things to keep in mind when choosing a destination for your wedding. It must be safe, have all the resources you need, easy to get to etc. Also look into the political scene and laws of the area to avoid any issues and getting stuck in the country due to unrest.
It's always advisable to stay local for your destination wedding. There are many amazing resorts and locations within the country and within your state too, all you need to do is a little research. You don't need to book anyone else's travel, but since you will be booking a particular hotel for you and your families, you can offer to help guests.
Let them know which hotel you're booking or having the event at so they can book at the same location too and avail the discount. Group reservations are always the most beneficial and cost effective.
