Thinking about a destination wedding or already have the planning for one underway? Making plans to get married away from home can be super exciting, but it can also be extremely stressful. There’s a lot to arrange and, even with the two of you and perhaps help from friends and family, it can feel like you’ll never get it all done in time. If you want to reduce the stress, use these tips.
Understand the Legal Requirements
Getting married in a different country can mean dealing with some red tape and jumping through some hoops. You should be sure that you understand the rules about getting married elsewhere, both for the marriage itself and when you return home. What do you need to do to get married legally, and will your marriage be legitimate when you’re home?
Keep It Small
Organizing a destination wedding is already difficult, and it’s even harder if you have a large guest list to deal with. If you want it to be less stressful, you should consider keeping things small. In fact, this is one of the advantages of having a destination wedding. You can have a smaller affair, and no one will mind.
Being super organized doesn’t come naturally to everyone, but it will save you if you’re planning a destination wedding. Use resources like a wedding binder and a checklist of the most important tasks to ensure you don’t forget about anything. Get help from friends and family too, or even consider hiring a wedding planner.
