Destination Wedding gives the best experience to the couple and everyone that witnesses mingle. We see many couples come here to get married in Denmark and based on our experience, we can share that destination wedding is definitely an amazing experience. However, it is important to do some planning to make your wedding a happy experience. There are many things you need to take care of and one of them is shipping and packing the things that you need to carry to your wedding destination. In this article, I will share a step wise guide to help you make this difficult looking task easier.
1. Only take necessary things
This is the most important and I would say difficult step. We, especially brides, want to carry everything with them from the home town, but this isn’t a cool idea. I would say take only necessary things with you. For example, wedding attire, other clothes, jewellery, etc. must be taken. If you are inviting guests on your destination wedding, then you may have some extra items such as, gifts or welcome card for the guests. That should be carried with you. I would say, the decoration items for wedding location should be left home. You better hire a wedding planner and delegate task of decoration to them. For example, we help couples to get married in Denmark along with additional services, if they need. For example, wedding cartage, flowers, cake, etc. can be arranged by the wedding planner. Things which are necessary, but not really expensive in the country you are visiting should be bought there.
2. Check shipping vs. extra luggage fees
Once you are ready with your list of items that need to be carried to the wedding location. This is the time to check shipping fee for the same. On the other hand, check how much it costs to check-in the luggage with you on the flight. If the shipping fees is not expensive, I would say send it as a shipment. However, make sure the wedding attire and jewellery must be in your check-in luggage and don’t send it via shipping service. If the shipping fees or time is more than the check-in luggage fee and the time it would take you to reach, then better take the luggage with you. Buy folding bags or use second hand bags to carry these additional items.
3. Take some wise decisions
When you are clear what to be shipped and what to be checked-in with you, this is the time to take some wise decisions. If you are going to ship the luggage, you have to make sure that your luggage will reach the destination location before at least 3 days and make sure it will be received by the right person. Make sure to make all arrangements for the same. In case, you are taking luggage with you, you must make a cost saving plan, if needed. If you are traveling with others or some will join you later, in both cases, you can request them to carry the bags for you. This way you can save on extra baggage.
Hope this helps you to plan your luggage shipment to the wedding location. You can also take suggestions from your wedding planner. If you want to get married in Denmark, get in touch with us and we will guide you further.
