Lovebirds In Langkawi

Oct 01, 2019

Whilst many regional seaside cities and towns as well as islands, compete for the destination wedding market, among them Bali, Samui, Phuket, Krabi and Hua Hin as well as Penang, Tioman and Kota Kinabalu, another destination that is rather popular in our own backyard is Langkawi.

The allure of this Unesco-recognised archipelago :

  • Easy access from main cities regionally.
  • Spectacular landscapes and beaches as well as equally spectacular resorts.
  • Experienced wedding specialists at resorts that are popular choices for destination weddings.
  • Wedding vendors who are familiar with organising destination weddings there.
  • Scenic, natural landscapes for photography.
  • Eco-inspired activities which wedding guests can experience, or if they prefer, just lazing by the beach works too.

Consider the following when planning for a destination wedding :

  • Choose a time of year where the weather will mostly cooperate.
  • Keep a lookout for promotional rates for flights as well as accommodation.
  • Negotiate room rates for your wedding guests as well as wedding vendors.
  • Offer your guests the opportunity to participate in touristic activities.
  • How about an eco-friendly wedding celebration?
  • Will you organise a pre-wedding shoot around the island too?
