Tips for a Perfect Destination Wedding in India

Perfect Destination:

The first thing to consider is the wedding spot as that determines the time, travel, number of guests and off-course the budget to carry it out effectively. The location further reflects the personality, style and class of a couple. Goa with its sprawling beaches, chic beach bistros, glistening azure waters and stylish ambience offers the perfect picturesque backdrop to tie the knot. The” Queen of the Hills” Mussoorie provides an idyllic wedding spot among luxurious greenery, wonderful waterfalls and picturesque pines to celebrate a marriage. Udaipur, with its opulent palaces flaunting their grandeur and lavishness does not trail behind in offering an out-of-this-world spot to say “I do.”

Suitable Time:

For pulling off destination weddings with efficiency, plan it months or years before the big day. Weather is an important factor to be considered and the popular destinations coincide with the tourist season. If the wedding is during the peak season, reservations need to be done well in advance. The guests to be invited for the destination wedding should be notified with save-the-dates about say 10—12 months before the wedding so that they can keep those dates reserved for the wedding and can book their flights months ahead before the price of the air tickets shoot up during the peak tourist season.

Selecting the Right Vendors:

Choosing appropriate vendors is of utmost importance. Go through the portfolios of the vendors online or take feedbacks from their earlier clients to get an idea of their efficiency and productivity. The vendors should be very responsive to the needs of the clients. Expertise, experience, responsibility, passion, dedication, punctuality are some of the traits to be looking for while searching vendors for the wedding arrangements. There should be a level of comfort with the vendors and if the clients are unable to meet their vendors in person, a Skype call is a must to assess their professionalism and personality.

Couple of Trips to the Destination:

One trip prior to the wedding to the destination is a must for selecting and booking the venue for the special occasion and the events to be held and also for finalizing the local suppliers. If a second and third trip is feasible and affordable, it is recommended to finalise the catering service and all the other vendors and tie in logistics.

Arranging the Transport:

Choose the transport services carefully as it is of vital importance for a destination wedding. If the wedding destination is the exotic Andaman and Nicobar Islands, flight tickets have to be booked way ahead of the special occasion. If the wedding destination is an adjacent city, hire Volvo Bus Services. There are many Travels Services that offer wedding transportation services all over India. You can go through a travel agency or travel agents for the purpose.

Deciding on the Number of Guests:

It is quite obvious that the guest list cannot be a long one for a destination wedding. Only very close friends and relatives can be invited to such a wedding. This is a new concept and many would be excited to be a part of this grand celebration but the couple should choose their guests wisely and 100 -200 guests should be fine for the wedding.

Choosing the Right Fabric:

Comfort is of paramount importance in any occasion or event. For tropical destinations, a heavily embroidered saree would make the bride feel uncomfortable. She can opt for light-weight chiffon instead. If the wedding venue is by the beach the air is hot and humid there and added to the sticky weather, a heavy garb would only add to the discomfort of the bride.

By keeping in mind the suggestions for planning a destination wedding in India the event can be carried out effectively with no trouble at all. Choosing the right vendors and hiring the right professional services make the task a lot easier.
