Destinations To Contemplate

Aug 01, 2020

With weddings resuming throughout the country amid the new norm, soon-to-be-wed couples now have the opportunity to once again contemplate whether to head out of town for a destination wedding or stay put for a celebration in the city. The case for the former, a smaller, more personal invite list, and likely an open air exchange of vows by the sea or in the highlands, whilst for the latter, the convenience of marking their nuptials without the need to travel afar. Both options are certainly possible, in particular when planned with the assistance of resorts or hotels that already have the necessary social distancing protocols in place.

  • Seascapes or views of the highlands for photography.

A city wedding :

  • Opportunity of a more private celebration or a bigger bash.

Whatever your choice may be, be certain to delve into these issues with the venue :

  • The implementation of the necessary SOPs issued by the government in relation to hosting wedding celebrations.
  • Have your wedding vendors coordinate with the venue on such protocols.

 

Tip : Consider the portfolio of properties under Swiss-Garden International Hotels, Resorts & Inns either for destination weddings or celebrations in the city.
