A destination wedding can be a lifetime experience if everything goes right. Thus, you must want to make sure that you as a couple, who are going to get married in Denmark or any other destination location must not make any silly mistakes. There are many articles written on what guests should not do at a destination wedding. In this blog post, we will cover what a couple must not do at their destination wedding.
1. Being completely unaware of the destination
Whether you choose another city or another country to get married, you must know as much as you can about your destination wedding.
The first thing a couple must know is wedding laws at the destination location for foreign couples. If you get time, also learn about culture and locals. If you hire a local wedding planner, he/she will educate you about that and other facts related to the destination location.
2. Reaching late
You must have chosen a destination wedding because you want to make your wedding even more memorable. Thus, you must reach at least a day or two before the wedding destination. This will give you enough time to relax and get refreshed for the destination wedding.
On the contrary, if you reach at your destination wedding late, you are more likely to be in stress as you might need to take care of some formalities. Also, you may look tired. Thus, avoid reaching late at the destination.
3. Bringing too many guests at a destination wedding
This would be a disaster because then all focus of the couple gets diverted to guests and their comfort. Many times, a major reason for choosing a destination wedding is to enjoy the wedding to the fullest and focus on their comfort and happiness. Thus, if you can, choose elopement wedding, in which, you will be accompanied only by your partner. If you have to invite some members, they must be less than ten and closer to you.
4. Focusing more on selfie than a wedding
This is a digital era and everyone loves taking pictures, especially, selfie and put them on social media. When you are in a beautiful location to get married, you might get the urge of taking more pictures and immediately share them on various social media platforms. However, this will definitely spoil the experience of a destination wedding. You must indulge completely in the wedding and different rituals related to that. Hire a professional wedding photographer to take candid and posed pictures. You must completely get involved in what’s happening around you.
5Not hiring a destination wedding planner
Things will be too stressful to get managed by yourself. You better hire a destination wedding planner and it is recommended to hire a local wedding planner. The planner will make all the arrangements and you can enjoy the wedding to the fullest.
These are the top 5 tips to keep in mind when you have planned to have a destination wedding.
