6 Ideas to Consider for a Lavish Destination Wedding Celebration

It is every bride’s dream to have a fairytale destination wedding. And if life has blessed you enough for such dream to be a reality, all the options available to you may actually prove to be overwhelming.

To provide a good backbone for your wedding planning, listed below are six ideas to consider for a wedding that will leave you in awe, and wanting for nothing more.

1. Have a pre-wedding extravaganza.

Make the days leading to your nuptials as fun for you and all the people who matter to you. Set aside dates to build up excitement for the wedding day. Of course, you can still have the usual bridal shower, stag party, and rehearsal dinner, but you can add more activities that everyone can enjoy.

With the help of your planner, you can make arrangements for everything — from an elegant dinner cruise with your entire wedding entourage — to a quick shopping trip abroad with the parents.

2.Buy out an exclusive island for the event.

The world offers an abundance of stunning locations that are absolutely perfect for a destination wedding. Tropical islands remain to be the top picks, and you should consider them if you want absolute privacy for the event.

Seychelles, for example, has small private islands that are fully equipped for a classy wedding fit for royals and celebrities. There is this Seychelles luxury resort in the Sainte Anne that you can rent for your grand event. It has villas for you and the groom, as well as for all of your guests. There are various amenities, too, that will ensure you and the rest of your wedding party are pampered before and after the wedding.

This type of resort has got everything covered for your dream wedding. You can work with the resident wedding planner and the resort will make sure that everything you want for your special day (a tall wedding cake, fancy souvenirs, and others) will be provided according to your wishes.

 3. Make arrangements for a spa day with your bridal entourage.

Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful even if you hire all the best services to help you out. So, treat yourself and your best girls to a complete set of spa services to undo all your tension knots. Also, spa treatments will make sure that you have beautiful, glowing skin on the day of your wedding.

4. Hire a highly experienced and entertaining emcee.

An amazing emcee will make sure that there are no awkward moments on your wedding day. He or she will create a programme to ensure the smooth flow of activities and even work out any surprise wedding hiccups.

Additionally, emcees are reliable repositories of ideas on how to create a more festive wedding reception. They know the latest trends and can even inform you about the different issues that typically arise during an event. This way, you can prepare for any risks before they even occur.

5. Get versatile entertainers.

You can never go wrong with a band that has a diverse musical repertoire. It can perform songs you all can dance, sing along, and just groove to. Such a band can also beautifully set the mood for the event.

Singers are also wonderful for romantic serenades. Love songs interpreted the right way by a talented singer can enhance the atmosphere of the event.

So take the time to screen entertainers for your wedding and go with those that sound good and feel just perfect for your wedding celebration.

6. Document everything.

You should be able to look back at your dream wedding. Hire the best videographers and photographers to document the wedding and all the activities before it, and immediately after.

The best videographers do not just document events. They are able to weave a beautiful story through skillful directing and video editing. Top photographers, on the other hand, lend their artistic eye in capturing vital moments. These are the people you want on hand to preserve the marvelous memories of your wedding day for you.

Time to marvel in wedded bliss!

With these six ideas to get you started on putting together the wedding that your heart desires, you can soon look forward to your walk down the aisle.

By taking care of all these and planning for the other details of your grand destination wedding, all else will follow and you can look forward to the wedding of your dreams.
