10 Ways To Make Your Destination Wedding The Talk Of The Town

10 Ways To Make Your Destination Wedding The Talk Of The Town

Planning a destination wedding is no joke, but making your destination affair one that your friends and family will never forget is now made easier with these ten special touches!

1. Dress Up The Wedding Website

Everyone has a wedding website these days but yours could be ultra rad by making it the one-point stop for providing your guests with not just details about the city, but also about fun stuff to do!

Include surprises on your site and where to find them, maybe even a cute check-in option to announce they’ve arrived.

2. Make A Weekend Of It

Intentionally spend time with the special people who travelled hundreds or thousands of miles to be part of your day.

Have a party before or after the wedding as a form of appreciation just for your guests!

3. Help Your Guests Get Into Town

Don’t just excitedly announce that you’re getting married in Bali or Jamaica and then leave your guests to figure out how to get there or where to stay.

Recommend the best means of travel and hotels they should consider. Offer a bulk discount you’ve specially arranged just for them.

4. Throw A Welcome Party To Remember!

Welcome your guests to town by throwing a welcome party, with authentic local dishes and signature drinks in a beautiful location. It is your wedding, they want to be a part of the festivities. Show them how much you want them to be there as well!

5. Might We Suggest A Welcome Gift

Nothing says thank you for coming like a welcome gift to meet your guests in their hotel rooms. Pick a unique gift that fits with your wedding theme or the wedding location.

And make it memorable, you don’t get to be the talk of the town without the effort!

6. Plan Exciting Activities

Your friends and family may not be very familiar with the city or country, so organize fun activities to help them enjoy their time with each other and you.

Just be sure to allow them some free time to explore on their own. Provide suggestions for before and after the wedding activities for all age groups.

7. Organize Transportation

Some cities may not have reliably scheduled public transportation, so remember to organize transportation to the different activities you have planned.

If the majority of your guests will be staying at the same hotel or resort hosting you and your wedding, you might be able to organize for transportation for all your guests together!

8. Create A Custom Hashtag

Decide on a custom hashtag for you and your love and then encourage your guests to use it when they post pictures on social media.

As a couple, you’ll enjoy seeing how much fun your loved ones had by scrolling through their hash-tagged pictures. If you’re stumped on ideas for your personal hashtag, check out our helpful hashtag guide!

9. How About Hospitality Suites?

Add an extra touch by providing simple but useful amenities in your hospitality suite. The key is to set-up the hospitality suite at the venue where most of your guests are staying or where you are hosting most of your activities.

10. Rely On Vendors To Do The Heavy Lifting

Choose key vendors to rely on as the details come together.

For example, use your décor vendor to help you source other vendors and provide day of wedding coordination services to ensure that your day goes smoothly.
