Wedding Arrangements - When you've decided to have a destination wedding, the first thing you may think of is the arrangements. We help you with all of your arrangements and decisions. Whether it's an intimate gathering for dinner or an exotic beach on a tropical isle we will be in a position to execute your dream for you. Before you talk to us, please have the following in mind: How many people are going to attend my wedding/reception? What sort of food do I want to serve? What time of day would I like the ceremony and reception to be? Are there going to be children invited? These are all answers you should have available before starting to plan any wedding or reception, especially one away from home, where making changes last minute might not be possible. When you're planning your destination wedding, one of the first things you might think of is: what about the food? It's not easy to choose a menu from a restaurant or caterer that you haven't been able to taste-test. However, there are ways to take the guess work out of picking tasty food from far away places. Pick items you've already had before, even if you haven't tried them from this particular chef. If you want something exotic, make sure that there aren't ingredients that could cause problems (like allergies) for your guests. You can also use our expertise as to what foods make for a great reception. We also will be able to choose properties who will be able to provide Indian Food for those who want an ethnic feel to the ceremony. Another item to consider when planning your destination wedding is who will officiate the wedding ceremony. Usually, brides and grooms who are planning a destination wedding are not concerned with a religious wedding, and plan to have their ceremony in an outdoor or other casual location. Many of these couples are married by a civil or religious officiant. One thing to remember is that an official or religious figure may not marry you in another country, so you will need to pick your officiant from those available at the destination where you're getting married.

Points to keep in mind1. Destination Wedding Invitations
When sending out wedding invitations to your destination wedding, be sure to do it early! A "Save the Date" card should be sent out as soon as you have finalized your planning, usually four to six months before the wedding date. You'll want to give a large window of time for the guests you've invited to be able to make arrangements to attend. We can help you to get your arrangements made with enough advance notice that you'll be able to send out those invitations with plenty of time to spare.
2. Destination Wedding Gifts
Many people may wonder what will happen to their gifts at a destination wedding. Usually, the bride and groom (or more properly, a member of the wedding party) will have let guests know where they are registered for gifts, and the guests will purchase items and bring them to the wedding. If the wedding is outside the country, it is acceptable wedding reception etiquette to have the parents of the bride or groom (or someone else close to them) let guests know to send gifts to the couple's home, or to only bring gifts of money or gift certificates to the destination.
3. Couple's Destination Wedding Duties
At a destination wedding, there are varying beliefs as to what is proper for the couple to pay for. Different approaches can be used after discussion with the couple and family members. Often, a thank you card acknowledging the guests attendance and a small gift is appropriate.
4. Choosing Your Wedding Attire
What you're going to wear on your wedding can be dictated by many things - your personal style, your budget or your location. If you need to get destination wedding attire, you might wonder if you should pick a traditional wedding garment or a simpler dress. We make it easy to find resources about dressing for your chosen location. Make sure to pick an outfit that will be comfortable for your climate and setting.
When planning destination wedding attire, you may need a little help deciding on a theme. No matter where you are going to get married, a wedding dress can be as formal or as casual as you'd like. You may wish to choose something completely different from the usual dress, however, and many people with destination weddings choose local styles to complement their location.
