Planning a Destination Wedding in Melbourne


0

Your guests will be surprised to get unique wedding invitations to a destination wedding in Melbourne. If you have decided this is the route for you, you will be doing all of your planning long distance. While a destination wedding is often easier and less expensive than a traditional wedding, a lot of preparation must go into it to make it a success.

FIND SOMEONE LOCAL TO WORK WITH

Since you won’t be on-site for all of your wedding planning, it’s important that you find a local wedding planner to work with. You will need to find someone reputable, as you will not be able to oversee their work.

A wedding planner will know the local Melbourne area and can suggest venues, decorations, and other things that you will need.

You have two options when working with a planner long distance. You can either let them figure out the logistics of the wedding after you give them ideas for your basic theme, or you can work with them on every decision. Either method is going to have its benefits and drawbacks.

PLAN THE WEDDING YOURSELF

If you have the time, you can do the work yourself. The Internet has made it much easier to do long-distance planning. You can easily find venue options online for Melbourne, as the city has numerous selections to choose from. You will be able to choose from traditional venues to modern designs, and from beautiful outdoor gardens to breathtaking indoor venues.

Most of these venues have their own catering, so you can choose your menu from what they have to offer. They can often guide you to other services in the area, such as an official to oversee the wedding, an event decorator, a limo service, and any other service you might need for your big day.

USE EVENT DECORATORS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS

If you do not want to use a wedding planner for the entire event, you can still find event decorators who will handle the design and decorations for your wedding. They will provide the equipment, as well as a gallery of ideas for you to work with.

Book a photographer ahead of time. Many venues and event planners work with the same photographers at multiple events, so you can easily get recommendations.

If you’replanning to have your destination wedding in Melbourne during the busy season, you will want to start booking early, as venues and photographers can be booked out months ahead of time.

GIVE YOUR GUESTS ENOUGH TIME

Since your wedding will be more than just an afternoon event for your guests, they will want to have it on their calendar far in advance. You will also have to decide if you will book the hotel rooms for all of your guests or let them take care of it themselves.

In addition, plan to arrive early, so that you can oversee the final details and enjoy a day visiting the area on a Melbourne tour with your family.

A destination wedding can be a lot of fun, but you have to begin planning early to make sure it goes off without a hitch.
