Are you having your wedding at your local church, favourite scenic spot or some place personally meaningful? Whatever you choose it’s going to be great but have you ever considered a destination wedding?
Destination weddings are becoming ever more popular whether it would be some place close like the Blue Mountains or Hunter Valley. Overseas weddings in New Zealand or Fiji are becoming increasingly popular. There are a whole host of reasons for a destination wedding. Some reasons are that the location has sentimental meaning (where he or she proposed), family heritage, to have a smaller and more intimate wedding. Sometimes just because you want to get away from it all.
Once you have chosen your destination, you may wish to incorporate some of the local sights. For example if you’re getting married in the Blue Mountains a popular choice is to have a wedding photo with the 3 Sisters behind you. Another popular option in the Hunter Valley is to take photos weaving through the vineyards.
The only 2 main issues with destination wedding planning is that sometimes people over look the price and planning part. Couples will have a budget in mind and not realise all the additional costs of a regular wedding. They forget to factor in the logistical issues and additional pricing of a destination wedding. For example we had one client prior to booking us had budgeted for everything. They had forgotten to budget hotel stays for themselves and helping organising guest accommodation and transport.
Another element, often overlooked is logistics. A wedding in the Hunter Valley sounds great however many couples fail to realise that while initially in the heads it’s just a couple of hours away… the couple may end up going to the ceremony and reception space many times to confirm and visualise things. This leads to many weekends away and a build of up hotel builds that were an unexpected expense.
On the same topic people book suppliers such as entertainment, photographers and so on they see on-line, at bridal expos or through referrals. That being said while you think you have snagged a bargain with the photographer… you may also have to pay a travel surcharge which may include hotel accommodation for a destination wedding.
