destination wedding

Having a destination wedding miles away from home means you and you’re guests will be having a great time! However, planning such an event requires more than a traditional wedding at your location. There are many important details to consider. Whether you’ve decided on a tropical destination like Miami, or a romantic getaway in Tuscany, we’ve got all of the bases covered. From choosing the perfect venue to coordinating every detail, here are some tips to have a successful destination wedding.

Choose the location

When deciding on a destination, choose one that’s safe and has all the resources you need. Also, beware of travel warnings, political issues, or health concerns in the region. Consider your guests, especially how feasible the travel will be for the elderly grandpa or pregnant cousin.

Guest lodging

It’s a thoughtful gesture to provide hotel recommendations to satisfy a range of budgets. Provide your guests with at least five options within a ten-minute radius of the wedding location.

Hire a professional

Find a planner that specializes in destination weddings. An expert can help you take care of everything, and you’ll only need to make the executive decisions. You can also look for a venue with a strong on-site planner. If you are wanting to have a destination wedding in Miami, our venues at Renaissance offer even specialists that can help you plan in accordance with what you want and need.

Visit in advance

Ideally, for you to choose the venue it is best if you visit it first and book it later. We recommend a second trip three to four months before the wedding to finalize details. In any case, make sure to arrive at least five days early to make sure everything is in order.
