Four Tips to Take Your Destination Wedding To The Next Level

With a new diamond ring on your finger, it’s time to start planning a wedding. Remember, your wedding is no run-of-the-mill event. It needs to be luxurious, personal, and just a bit over the top. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event for both you and your spouse to be. A destination wedding is a surefire way to have a celebration that is the perfect mix of glamour and excitement. Whether you are thinking of tying the knot on top of a mountain in Colorado or on a beach in Tahiti, these tips will elevate your destination wedding to the next level of luxury.

Hire a Wedding Planner and Take a Planning Trip
One of the joys of a destination wedding is embarking on a new chapter of life in a new locale. But, your wedding trip should not be the first time you visit the area. You will need to hire your wedding planner at least 10 – 12 months in advance, which makes this the perfect time frame for a planning trip. Schedule a face-to-face meeting with your planner and spent the time together discussing your unique style, getting to know each other, scoping out the ceremony and reception venues, and meeting with potential vendors.

Fly Private
During your wedding celebration, you want to be relaxed and present at the moment. Dealing with the hassles of busy airports, waiting in endless lines and spending hours squished into small airplane seats is not the way to start the trip of a lifetime. Instead, charter an aircraft through a private jet company and you will get to your wedding destination in luxury. Even better, invite your nearest and dearest friends and family to join you on your private flight and let everyone start the celebration a bit early. 

Hire Local Vendors
The key to infusing your destination wedding with the unique flair of your locale is to trust local vendors to set the atmosphere. Planning from afar and choosing local vendors may mean letting go of a little control. But, your wedding planner is likely an expert in all the best chefs, florists, and entertainment options. When you select locally-grown flowers and authentic flavors, you will set the stage for an event that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. 

Bring in Your Own Vendors
While food and flowers are perfect spots to use locale vendors, there are some key players on your wedding day that you should bring in for the big day. Ideally, you should fly in your own photographer, makeup artist, and hairstylist. Though there will be added expense, in terms of travel and accommodation costs, the results of working with a team that knows you well are priceless. Sticking with the same photographer for your engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding photography means all of your memories will have a cohesive look. Plus, your personal team of photographers and beauty professionals will know your style and all your best angles so that you look stunning at your celebrations.
