    Mistakes to Avoid When Planning a Destination Wedding

    Last updated 1 day 13 hours ago

    Planning a destination wedding is a great way to celebrate your love in a beautiful and exotic location. If you are thinking about hosting a destination wedding, be sure to avoid the following planning mistakes.

    Waiting Too Long to Plan

    Since the majority of your planning time will be spent far away from your wedding location, it is important to give yourself enough time to organize all of the details. As soon as you know where you want to get married, you should start booking your venue and accommodations for your and your guests so you can be sure you have reservations when you need them. Taking care of wedding details early gives you the chance to fix any problems that might arise.

    Packing Poorly

    If you are planning to get married far from home, it is very important to take your time packing well. Create a checklist so you know exactly what you need to put into your suitcase. Take special care packing the wedding dress and the groom’s attire to ensure that they are in pristine condition when you get to your destination. If you are worried you might forget to pack something, you might want to put one of your more reliable guests in charge of bringing it to the destination.

    Planning Too Many Activities

    Although your friends and family want to spend time with you and your new spouse when they travel for your wedding, they might also want to enjoy the destination a little bit on their own. Instead of creating packed itineraries of group activities, try to give your guests some free time so they can really enjoy their trip.

    Creating a Honeymoon Packing List

    Last updated 8 days ago

    After you are officially married, it is time to celebrate on your honeymoon. If you want to make the most out of your first trip as a married couple, you have to be sure to pack well. Use this guide to make a packing checklist that helps you get organized before your big trip.

    style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">Travel Musts

    While a lot of your packing list depends on where you are planning to travel, there are a few must-haves that every traveler should pack. Be sure you have your airline, hotel, and rental car confirmations. If you are going to another country, you should pack your passport. Bring a photocopy of your identification in case you lose the real one. Be sure to have a list of important phone numbers, any medication that you need, and a digital camera or a cell phone on which you can take pictures.

    style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">Clothing

    Try to bring as little clothing as possible to provide enough outfits for the duration of your trip. Bring one pair of jeans and one pair of nice pants. Usually one light jacket or a sweater is enough. Women should bring one black dress, two swimsuits, a few pairs of shorts, and one pair of walking shoes and one pair of evening shoes. Men should bring a few polo shirts, some shorts, one swimsuit, and a sports jacket. Pack all of the undergarments and socks that you will need and a few accessories like scarves that help you add versatility to your wardrobe.

    style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">Extras

    If you are checking your bag, you should pack sunscreen, sun hats, aloe vera, Band-Aids, and other toiletries that you might need on the trip. You should also throw in a few travel extras like books and cards to help pass the time while traveling to your destination.

    Etiquette Tips for a Destination Wedding

    Last updated 15 days ago

    If you want to plan a destination wedding, you might have some questions about what is expected of you and your guests. Keep reading to learn some etiquette tips for a destination wedding so you can plan an enjoyable celebration for you and your guests.

    The Guests Pay their Way

    A lot of brides and grooms feel like it is their responsibility to pay for their guest’s travel expenses. In actuality, they are only responsible for getting themselves to the wedding. Do not feel like you have to pay for your guests to get to the location if you plan a destination wedding. If you have the money and you know that it might be hard for some of your guests to pay, however, you can offer to help with some expenses to make it easier for them.

    Send Out a Pre Save-the-Date

    Since your guests have to figure out how to get to your destination wedding, you should send out a little note before the save-the-dates. Send your traditional save-the-dates about three or four months before your wedding. You should mail out the regular wedding invitations about eight weeks before the big day. Be sure to include information about the destination so your guests can make their travel arrangements.

    Register for Economical Gifts

    If you choose to register for gifts for your destination wedding, try to consider your guests’ budgets. Since they are spending so much money to travel to your wedding, you do not want to ask for gifts that come with an expensive price tag.

    If you are in search of a travel agency that can help you plan your honeymoon, look no further than Brentwood Travel.  Be sure to ask about our popular Honeymoon Registry, so friends and family can help make your dream wedding trip a reality.  Call us at (314) 488-2100 for more information today or check it out on our website:  -
