With brides dreaming of saying their “I do’s” with their toes in the sand, destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. Maybe you have a destination in mind, or maybe you are just toying with the idea. This article will give you some tips for planning your dream destination wedding.
A few days before your wedding, get all of the jewelry that you are planning to wear professionally cleaned. This will help you to sparkle more as you are walking down the aisle, illuminating the beauty that you possess. Find a great jewelry cleaner and improve the quality of your stones before the wedding.
If you live in a larger city, consider looking into smaller cities for a location to have your wedding. Venues are more expensive in the large cities. If you have a small city close to where you live, check out what it has to offer. You may find a great venue for a reasonable price just by changing your venue city.
If something goes wrong on your wedding day, don’t freak out! My cake fell over on the way to my ceremony, and both the best man and woman were unable to attend. In the end, those people are no longer in my life and my new best woman was a cake decorator who was able to fix the cake. It will always work out!
When deciding on your wedding cake, try to achieve colors that will match your theme. You can use a Pantone book, to help you find the exact colors that you will be using. Most cake bakeries use this book to help them color the cake to match your wedding. Having a cake that completely matches your color scheme, can be very impressive for your guests.
On the morning of your wedding, you will have to give yourself extra time to get dressed since you will want everything to look perfect. Plan to start getting ready at least an hour before you usually would to avoid rushing to get to your wedding. This will allow you to look your best.
Don’t leave your guests waiting while you, your new spouse and the wedding party have an hour long photo shoot. The photos concerning the rest of the wedding party should be done in advance. Additionally, photographs of the bride with her parents and the groom with his parents can be taken before the wedding.
When inviting parents to your wedding, consider what time it will be held if they’re planning on bringing their kids. A night-time wedding with a reception that runs into the wee hours of the morning will not work well for children, so either move your ceremony to an earlier time or provide accommodation for children to have a nap during the reception.
Add color, texture, and pop to a country or nature-inspired ceremony or reception theme with rustic and vintage containers and decor. Enamel pots, watering cans, and tin washtubs are perfect for displaying wedding programs, favors, or butter mints. Cleaned, tinted jelly jars and terracotta flowerpots make attractive, charming holders for scented tea lights and votive candles.
If children are to be a part of your ceremony, pay special attention to the comfort of their clothes. Choose fabrics that are soft and have just the right amount of looseness so they don’t cause discomfort. Always make sure that shoes are broken in before they are worn for the big day. You want children to be as comfortable as possible on that day so that they aren’t being distractions by fussing with their clothing.

Hopefully this article has answered some of your questions, and given you some great ideas for planning the destination wedding of your dreams.
