( ENSPIRE Lifestyle ) How To Relax and Be Worry-Free at Your Destination Wedding
Weddings are complicated. Many people come from far away, families and friends are intermingling, and various factors can make or break the evening. Multiply this by 100 for destination weddings. Here are a few tips for making your destination wedding a stress-free and lovely night you won’t ever forget.
Plan to the Best of Your Ability
Planning is an essential component to ensuring your wedding day goes off without a hitch, but this is compounded in destination weddings. The destination element adds so many more factors—some of which can be controlled, while others are uncontrollable—and you need to find a way to deal with them. There should be multiple plan Bs, and there should be solutions in place when the factors out of your control go wrong. Take care of all this early, so when it comes to the actual day, you can sit back and relax.
Figure Out Restrooms
An essential part of every wedding is the ability for people to use the restroom freely and easily. In traditional venues, this is not an issue, as they are part of the venue itself. Destination weddings, however, can be tricky. You may be on the beach and far away from civilization. In these instances, you should rent clean, reliable portable restrooms for your guests. Everyone will be happy, your wedding can still be luxurious, and you won’t have to stress about people bothering you with restroom questions.
Carefully Consider Your Guest List
Many people cannot attend destination weddings, and all of this should be carefully calculated months in advance of the actual wedding date. Your wedding day should not have the stress of who’s here and who’s not. Plan carefully for this and invite the people willing to travel and for whom finances and time allow it. Some people you want there may not be able to come, which is okay. Taking care of this now will save you plenty of headaches and allow you to live in the moment on your day instead of wondering where so-and-so is.
These tips for making your destination wedding stress-free can help you plan and live in the moment on your day, but actually doing so is tricky. It’s easy for your mind to slip into what-ifs and how things could have gone, but don’t let yourself do this. Instead, stay out of your head and have fun on your special day.
