Island And City Options

Jul 01, 2019

Looking towards walking down the aisle on a beach with the sea and setting sun as a spectacular backdrop? Or perhaps you may be more inclined to hosting a city wedding that culminates in a grand celebratory banquet at a hotel? Or perhaps you are contemplating both! Regardless of what your impending plans may be, having sufficient options to evaluate and consider is part and parcel of the wedding planning process.

Think through the following for beach weddings :

  • The island you plan to head to.
  • The reputation of the resorts which you have shortlisted.
  • Is a beachfront setting a must or will a lawn facing the sea suffice?
  • What backup plan does the resort offer when the weather does not cooperate?
  • Price points and cost of wedding packages as well as room rates.
  • The level of privacy that can be accorded vis-à-vis other guests.

Consider these issues for city weddings :

  • The size of your guest list and the capacity of the ballroom that you has caught your eye.
  • The location of the hotel and how easy it is to get to.
  • Is parking sufficient, particularly if you are inviting a large number of guests.
  • The interior design of the ballroom in relation to your wedding theme and décor ideas.
  • Menu choices, cuisine options and costs involved. 
  • How well-known the hotel is for hosting wedding banquets and the experience of their events team.
