Best Advice for Planning a Destination Wedding

Putting together a wedding is already hard enough. Planning for a destination wedding in Texas can be even more difficult. Here are a few things to help you get the wedding you’ve always wanted:

Pick a city

With plenty of beautiful cities to choose from, finding the perfect spot to exchange your “I Do’s” or host your reception will be easy. If one of those cities or spots hold special meaning to you both— such as where you spent your first date, kiss or anniversary —then all the better.

Think local

Go local so you can save on costs. Find local blooms or plants to punch up your settings without spending too much on trappings. Local specialties can also be handy in saving up on catering costs, Brides suggests.

Get a package

With a small wedding package, you can save on costs and still get the wedding you want. Intimate, romantic and affordable, you and your future spouse can start your first day as a married couple sans stress and money worries. This would make for an excellent start to your married life.

Pick vendors

The best vendors can also do a lot to get you the perfect wedding day. Ask for referrals when you’re on the ground. This could lead you to local talents who’ll make the difference in your blooms, cakes or table settings. Combine that with a bit of advanced planning for the best results. Set up appointments with local vendors so you have a pretty good idea which ones you’ll want to talk to the minute you and your future spouse arrive for that destination wedding in Texas.

Get there early

You’ll want enough time to oversee the preparations and talk to your vendors personally. Get there 5-7 days before the wedding. This should give you enough time to cover everything.
