One of the best things about hosting a wedding abroad is that you get to spend an extended amount of quality time with your nearest and dearest. However, planning in extra meet-ups around your wedding day need not just be for destination weddings.

 

When guests finally reach your wedding location they’re going be tired from travelling, hungry, thirsty and looking for a pick-me-up. What better way to greet visitors and get them in the mood for the forthcoming nuptials than with a welcome get-together? For guests who arrive the day before a local wedding, arrange a time for everyone to meet at a lovely pub or at the hotel bar to enjoy a well-deserved tipple.

Invest in the best photographer you can afford and consider a videographer.

The magical moments captured last forever; you really do appreciate having incredible photos and video moments to share with your loved ones and treasure after your big day is over.

 

Don’t get caught up in perfection.

Some things might go wrong or not be exactly how you planned, but none of your guests would ever know or notice. You can’t control everything and it’s important not to stress the small stuff and remember that this day is for the two of you – nothing else truly matters than you and your hubby-to-be tying the knot. By keeping this in mind it will help you shrug off any minor mishaps or tiny tweaks you would have made in hindsight.

 

Have faith in your vendors and suppliers – you’re in good hands.

Introduce them to your best man and maid of honour so that if there are any questions to be answered on the day, they won’t come to you!  Ensure you delegate any wedding day jobs; people love to feel included and will enjoying having a role to play in your big day.

 

Eat, drink and be married!

Eat breakfast even if you don’t feel like it and relax with a glass (or two!) of champers to settle your nerves before the ceremony.

You Mean The World To Me

The first and probably the most important decisions you need to make are where to get married and then finding the perfect venue.

 

We simply adore dreamy destination weddings at You Mean The World To Me, however we can’t get enough of lovely local unities too. When it comes to answering that all-important question – will your wedding day be at home or away? It’s all about determining what’s truly right and reflective of you and your hubby-to-be.

 

In recent years, the number of couples opting for a destination wedding has been steadily growing. Many are seeking guaranteed sunshine (or snow), or a more unique wedding experience, others are lured by the temptation of a more cost effective big day, or the appeal of a less complicated and scaled down wedding. Whatever your w-day dreams, here are a few things to consider before choosing whether your nuptials will take place on homeland or an away shore.

 

First thing’s first:

What’s your vision for your big day and what are your top priorities?

Make sure these ideals are what you both desire and try not to get swayed by family opinions; remember it is important that you and your partner have your special day your way. If having Great Aunty Eve there is imperative to you and she can’t travel, having a wedding closer to home is going to be a no brainer. Sit down with your honey and discuss what you both envisage in detail.
