Booking your destination wedding shouldn’t be a rush job conducted online at the last minute for some package of dubious value in wherever isn’t booked solid. It should be a leisurely, planned affair where you work with a travel agent to create the wedding of your dreams. You’re only going to get married once and you ought to make it the most awesome experience that you can. With that in mind – here are 5 questions you should ask your travel agent before you book a destination wedding:
Where Have Other Couples Been And Loved? Unless you have the destination already firmly picked out in your head; it’s a good idea to get some ideas about where you might want to hold the wedding. Talk to your travel agent about other couples in similar circumstances, where did they do? What did they want from their wedding? What was their feedback?
This will also help you get a feel for whether the agent has a real passion for this work or it’s just another service in a long line of travel services. Wedding specialists are likely to shine when they answer this question.
What Does It Take To Get There? You don’t ask this question just for yourselves, you also ask it for your guests. Will people need passports? Will they need visas? What are the pros and cons of travel at that time of year? What are the flight costs likely to be (this will be approximate)?
These are the questions your guests are going to be asking of you; so it’s best to be prepared to answer them.
What Currency Do They Use At The Destination? You may also want to check if there are other acceptable currencies. The Aussie dollar isn’t widely accepted outside of Australia but the US Dollar often is and it can be easier to source than some relatively obscure currency and the rates are often better.
Getting value for money from your destination wedding is important and so is getting the right money.
What Elements Of The Destination Wedding Can Be Customized? You’re not leaving things up to chance and that means, you want to know what lays within your control and what’s being dealt with by the destination team.
This can help ease your mind that you’re making the right decision on the destination and allow you to tailor your day to your needs and your guests’ needs too.
Is There Anything Else Important We Should Know About The Destination? It’s also a good idea to take a high level overview of the destination as a whole. Sure, you’re getting married but you’re also likely to be spending some time there after and before the wedding; why not make sure that it’s the right place for being together at those times too?
