While most couples will opt to have a wedding close to home, there is a growing trend lately of having a destination wedding. We here at the SCE Event Group love when people envision a bigger picture for their once-in-a-lifetime event, that is why SCE hosts such as Jason Jani will travel to great lengths to help meet your needs. Consider the Budget
There will be many costs when choosing a desired location, but also think about your guests, friends and family. Not everyone will have the same budget as you to travel for your special day. Try to set a meeting with your closest guests and see what can and can’t be done. Nothing would be worse than not having your close family and friends by your side for your wedding.
When planning for your destination wedding, an absolute must do is to visit the destination you’ve chosen (at least once). But multiple trips are even better since the initial trip will just be about securing the location. The trips afterwards are to find and secure vendors, create seating charts and etc. If only one trip can be made, that is fine, but make sure you at least go once!
The key to an amazing wedding is having the right DJ/Event Host. They will be providing the entertainment for the evening, so remember that a reception can look top notch, but with bad entertainment, you will have an empty dance floor, and guests ready to shoot out the door. The SCE Event Group’s Jason Jani is available for bookings worldwide and will provide the perfect audio landscape for your once-in-a-lifetime event.
A growing trend nowadays are the Do It Yourself brides, and sometimes even grooms. It is definitely a cool way to add a personal touch to your event, and also save some money. Items such as seating cards, menus and even giveaways can be made at home and be brought with you in your luggage when you are ready travel.
The Dress Code
Remember that having a destination wedding should showcase the destination chosen. An example, if you were to be married on a beach in the Bahamas, you could easily wear a very light short dress and would fit right in with the area. But if you were to be married in Alaska, something warmer and more formal would be appropriate.
While many couples today still leave their wedding destination to travel to another for the honeymoon, it may not be the smartest idea. All the time you will have at your destination wedding will be spent on the wedding. You may not have much time to see the tourist spots and go exploring. Having your Honeymoon in the same area of your wedding could also save you some money – Less plane flights for example.
Don’t Do it All Yourself.
The Do it Yourself Brides may be a growing trend today in the wedding world, but there are some jobs that need to be left to professionals, especially with destination weddings. A wedding planner can help you with your budget and also make sure that all details are followed through thoroughly. With all the stress and anxiety than can come with planning a wedding, having less on your plate is definitely a positive. Particularly when you may live 10 thousand miles away.
Destination Weddings can be much more exciting and fun if done correctly, and here at the SCE Event Group we love to help make them happen. If you are planning a Wedding, Nightlife Event or Party, we would love to discuss some of the options available for you from SCE. So please give us a call, 888-278-0900.
