Three Top Tips For Planning A Destination Wedding

Planning a Wedding Abroad

You and your better half will have a task on your hands to organise the perfect destination wedding. There are so many things to consider opposed to a wedding in a church, but that shouldn’t stop you exercising your right to live out your dream wedding.

Rob Dodsworth Photography understand and empathise the thought that needs to go into planning a destination wedding because the photographs before, during and after will be impacted by the decisions you make. To help you make the best choice for your wedding, here are three top tips to plan your destination wedding:

  1. Find somewhere that encompasses your relationship: A great way to discover a place for your destination wedding is to think of what you both like. Maybe your first date took place on a beach, at a park or at a certain venue – this could be a good starting place to find somewhere that sums up your relationship. It’s important you find a destination that feels comfortable for the both of you. This same sex wedding took place in the Algarve, Portugal because it is where the couple got engaged, just one year before!
  2. Make sure it’s appropriate for your friends and family: It’s vital that you consider how much time your friends and family will have to plan their arrangements for your wedding. If you’re planning to get married in another country, you’ll need to give them plenty of forewarning. This applies to access for your loved ones too, because if they can’t make it to the South of France, they’ll miss out.
  3. Speak to the experts: Don’t go trying to organise everything yourself. There is no magic potion that can make destination wedding planning easy but speaking to a wedding planner will allow you to hear your ideas turn into reality. This will give you peace of mind that everything from invitations, photography and the ceremony is taken care of without stressing your partner and yourself out.
