Three tips to help you plan your destination wedding

Setting your WEDDING DATE: four things to consider

Do you dream of saying “I do” to the love of your life barefoot in the warm sand? If so, know that getting married in paradise is relatively easy to do. Follow these three tips to plan an unforgettable ceremony under the sun. 1. DETERMINE YOUR NEEDS First, decide what you want and set your prio- rities. Brainstorm with your partner about your ideal destinations and discuss when you’d like to hold the ceremony. Draw up your guest list and establish a firm budget to avoid getting carried away.

Are you and your partner about to take the leap into marital bliss? Here are four things to look into before you send out your save the dates. 1. THE SEASON First, decide during what time of year you want to get married. Every season has its own charm, but know that the high season for weddings is over the summer. If you’re dealing with a small budget, consider an off- season ceremony to get the most bang for your buck. Winter weddings can be absolu- tely stunning. 2. THE DAY OF THE WEEK If you feel like getting married on a Mon- day, there’s nothing stopping you from doing just that! However, the traditional Saturday wedding is a convenient option if most of your guests work Monday to Fri- day. Getting married on a Saturday is more expensive than on a Friday or a Sunday though, and you’ll need to reserve early to ensure that your dream venue is available. 3. THE SCHEDULES Open up your planner and carefully study your own schedule, and then ask your close friends and family about their own plans for the foreseeable future. Remember to consider time off work, vacations and Crysler

holidays, various appointments and other signi- ficant events (birthdays, baptisms, other wed- dings, etc.) that are already planned among those in your circle to avoid any major sche- duling conflicts. 4. THE PROFESSIONALS Before you send out your invitations, make sure that the pros you want to hire are available on the chosen date. If you have your heart set on a certain photographer or caterer, secure their services as soon as pos- sible so you don’t get left high and dry.

2. CALL ON AN EXPERT A travel agent can give you the inside scoop on the best deals and destinations for your special day. Thanks to his or her expertise, the agent will make recommendations based on your needs, your budget and your expec- tations. Most beach resorts offer all-inclusive wedding packages; if that’s something you’d be interested in, ask your agent for details. 3. SEND OUT YOUR INVITATIONS EARLY Send out your wedding invitations as soon as you’ve settled on a wedding date. The earlier you inform your invitees about your plans, the better. Aim for at least six months notice to allow your guests to prepare for the trip.

If some of your friends or family members can’t make it to your wedding destination, plan a celebration with them when you get back home.
