Top aspects to consider for your destination wedding planning

Destination weddings can be so amazing! The adventure, the unknown, the gorgeous beauty of your chosen location…they can all add to the emotion of the Big Day. From a gorgeous beach to the snowy mountainside, a destination wedding can really be any location that you choose.

After you have chosen your location, the planning begins! However, from marriage requirements to elements of your big day, there are certainly some aspects you should take into consideration.

Here at I Thee Wed, it is our goal to ensure that your big day is planned to perfection. That is why we have gathered the top aspects to consider when planning your destination wedding, so be sure to take a look to discover more:

·         Requirements. It is extremely important to study a bit and see if your wedding will be legal when you return back home. This depends on your wedding location, its legislation, as well as the legislation back home. Run a little research and make sure everything is in order!
·         Packing. Don’t forget that packing can be even more stressful for a destination wedding. After all, there will be a lot of items you will have to pack. From the dress itself to all the accessories and the clothes you will use after the wedding. Make a list and thoroughly follow it!
·         Accommodations. Taking care of your guests is also very important. Make sure they get to your destination in time and safely. Also, make sure their stay is really enjoyable; from the welcome bags to the easiness to which they book their hotel rooms, everything should be prepared from the moment you invite them.
·         Hiring vendors. Last, but not least, remember that hiring vendors from a distance may feel a bit stressful. However, with the help of an experienced wedding planner, you can definitely pull this off, and, your wedding will be breathtaking, unforgettable and truly stunning.

No matter where you wedding is located, it should represent you and each one of your wedding visions. Here at I Thee Wed, we believe that your big day should be spectacular! If you are ready to start planning your great Cincinnati area wedding, be sure to contact us today.

If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them!

A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.
