Factors to Consider While Choosing International Wedding Destinations

International destinations have become extremely popular in recent years and Being able to marry abroad makes you and your partner literally a part of somewhere else. 

However, there are so many incredible Wedding Destinations that it can be difficult to know where to begin. Here are a few things to keep in mind to make the best decision:

Choose a destination wedding planner who gets you

One of the most important decisions to make your destination wedding a success is to choose the RIGHT destination wedding planner. It has to be someone who knows what you need and how to further enhance the experience for you. An ideal destination Wedding planner would know how to get everything 

done for you without overwhelming you with all the details of the plans and events. Hence, choose someone with a good amount of experience in international destination weddings. 

There are many wedding Planners in the market claiming to be the best in the field. Ask them to provide the details of their previous assignments to make the right decision.

Safety & travel bans

No matter which location you choose for your destination wedding, don't forget to check for safety and travel bans before spreading the word. An experienced wedding planner makes the whole process smooth for you. They contact embassies in advance (if needed) to check for different passport or health 

regulations as you might be expecting guests from different parts of the globe. 

Make a list of things you want

Since wedding planners design the events to fit the specifications of both the parties. One of the most important things you can do before you start planning is to understand your wants, needs, and expectations along with your budget.

You don’t want to end up in a destination that is too expensive or one that is too cheap or one that does not live up to your expectations. Also, it would be a great idea to write down the elements you want to incorporate in your wedding events and finalize everything before you start working with your international wedding planner

Make sure you ask your wedding planner to incorporate local elements into your planning, design, and décor to get the local vibe & essence into your events.

Knowing your transportation options

Your wedding is the perfect time to explore a new city or a country. After all, you will be in a new environment, with a new language and culture altogether. 

And therefore we would highly recommend that you get to know your transportation options beforehand for a seamless journey. You can enhance your guest's 

experience by adding some of the great transportation options available and they'll surely bring memories from this trip. Get to the bottom of it by answering:

  1. Do you want to take a private jet or a commercial flight?
  2. How about a helicopter ride for some scenic views?
  3. And trains that give spectacular scenery along the way to enhance the whole experience to the next level!

Transportation often becomes an integral part of your international destination wedding. However, your wedding planner will take care of everything, you need to know how everything is charted out.

Look into various hotels and locations

If you are interested in staying in luxury hotels, resorts, there are so many great options. Luxury hotels/resorts are known for their service, beauty, and location. They are perfect for a honeymoon, or a special occasion. You can choose from all kinds of hotels, from 5-star luxury to budget hotels. Most 

importantly, they should be able to offer the cuisine you prefer. Your planner will help you narrow down your choices as per your budget & expectations.

Types of venues for your wedding and reception

Here are the questions that will help narrow down your choices for venues, and its style, such as:

  1. Do you like indoor or outdoor venues?
  2. Do you like Formal setup or Informal setup?

For indoor setups we have options like hotels, palaces, banquet halls, place of worship etc. 

For outdoor setup we have many more options like wedding lawns, farm houses, boats & cruise, beaches & islands along with some unconventional one too like mountain tops, golf courses, vineyards, stadiums, amusement parks.

Keep in mind that if you choose an outdoor venue, like an island paradise or mountain top, then it will cost more because of all of the extra expenses involved with setting up tents or other structures & getting supplies there. Outdoor weddings are great, but they aren’t always easy on your budget. 

If you do decide to have an outdoor wedding, consider having dinner around sunset so that people can take advantage of the natural lighting.

Finding the perfect place for your ceremonies

You will want to pick a venue that matches the vibe that you want to incorporate in your ceremonies. After all, your wedding is the main event and you don’t want it to be cold or dark. 

You also don’t want to end up with a reception that you cannot enjoy because the place is too small or has limited or no parking or the distance from parking to the ceremony place is way too much.

And how can we forget the food!!! Guests do not forget the culinary experience they had at a wedding. It will help narrow down your options as well.

The flexibility of dates

One of the most important things to consider is the flexibility of dates for your wedding events. If you are planning your destination wedding with all the events taking place at one location, then you can probably be more flexible with your dates. 

However, if you are planning a destination wedding with limited days in each location, then it might be best to pick a fixed date for each event.  Your planner will find the best suitable venue that has availability on your dates.

Legal requirements for your wedding destination

Each destination that we have listed above have certain legal requirements to be met by the people getting married there. Hence, it is important that you know about them beforehand. In fact, your wedding planner must be an expert to handle these sorts of things.

Some locations require the couples to marry at a government office. In such cases, have it done as they need, and arrange for the symbolic marriage as you have planned. 

You may also need to carry a few documents such as your birth certificates, passports, and affidavits. Ensure that you have them all with you.

How do you want to spend your honeymoon?

After exploring your wedding plans, it’s time to get down to brass tacks. Ask yourself these questions:

  1. How can you make your honeymoon memorable?
  2. What adventures do you want to experience together?
  3. What places do you want to explore?

These are the kind of questions you will want to answer before you start working with your planner for your honeymoon. After all, your honeymoon is where you create memories as husband & wife for the first time. 

You might probably wanna spend your honeymoon, where you're planning to get married. So choose your wedding destination wisely.

Final Words

Marriages are made in heaven and a destination wedding is one of the best ways to make that a reality. The best wedding location is the one that you and your loved ones will remember for the rest of their lives.
