A destination wedding can be cheaper than a local wedding if you plan it correctly. It can also get very expensive if you fail in planning it properly. In this blog post, we will share the top tips that can help you plan a destination wedding that you enjoy without making a hole in your pocket.
1. Go for an elopement wedding
One of the major things that increase wedding expenses is the guest list. As many guests, you have as many expenses you need to handle. In the case of a destination wedding, you will need to take care of flight tickets, accommodation, food, and many other things. All this can make your wedding very expensive. Instead of taking guests to get married in Denmark or any other chosen destination, you can choose to drop guests. An elopement wedding can be a great option to reduce destination wedding expenses. You can always throw a wedding reception in your hometown for guests.
2. Book flights in advance
This is no secret that flights get expensive for nearby dates. For example, if you book a flight before 3-4 months from the wedding date, it will be cheaper than the flight next week or next month. Thus, it is necessary to book flights in advance. If you want to get married in Denmark or have already selected a wedding destination, it would be good to book the flight tickets and process the visa in advance to avoid the last-minute hustle. It will also reduce expenses.
3. Book a destination wedding planner
For a destination wedding, you will need to handle multiple things such as:
- Marriage certificate and Apostille process
- Wedding services (flower bouquet, hairstylist, cake, champagne, etc.)
To enjoy your destination wedding, you will need to arrange multiple things as you would at a local wedding. In addition to that, you will also need to take care of accommodation, paperwork related to foreign weddings, and the marriage certificate Apostille process. If you get married in Denmark and you live in any of the European countries, then you will not need to Apostille your marriage certificate. If you live in a non-European country, then the wedding certificate needs Apostille. Each country has different legislation and that you need to know in advance to follow.
To save your time and energy, you can hire a destination wedding planner in Denmark or any other country for planning your destination wedding. Other than time, the destination wedding planner can also save your money. Usually, wedding planners have a network of wedding service providers, so they can arrange things at a cheaper cost. They can also recommend the right and affordable accommodation for a lovely stay. Moreover, they will take care of the paperwork, Apostille, and other formalities. All you do is enjoy your wedding. It may sound expensive, but it is a cheaper option than doing everything on your own.
