A Wedding And A Getaway

Nov 01, 2019

For engaged couples who wish to eschew the traditional city wedding that comes along with a customary banquet, the opportunity to getaway for a wedding weekend is really an idea to contemplate. Somewhere not too far from home, somewhere easy to get to at a relatively affordable cost, somewhere where an intimate and personal celebration can be organised for a select group of family and close friends.

When planning for such a sojourn, do take into the account some of the following :

  • Who finances the wedding costs.
  • Cost of flights and accommodation.
  • The type of resort you wish to host your celebration.
  • The location of the chosen property and ease of access to touristic activities for your guests.
  • The size of your invite list and the capacity of the wedding venues within the resort.
  • The formality of your wedding and reception.

Some suggestions :

  • Have the resort’s wedding planner suggest local vendors whom you may appoint.
  • Select a reception menu that showcases the best of the local cuisine at the destination.
  • Negotiate room rates, particularly if your group is taking up a large number of rooms.
