How to Choose a Location For Your Destination Wedding?

Congratulations - you're getting married! Planning your wedding is full of choices, none more important than where you say, "I do". More couples are choosing destinations weddings and not needing a passport to get there. In fact, a recent trend is to invite the wedding party and turn your special day into a week-long celebration. Of course, your chosen location needs much more than warm weather and lovely scenery. Look for a full-service venue offering pre-wedding events, lodging accommodations, a day-of beauty salon, exquisite menu options, and much more. Consider a wedding on the beach in Georgia to make your once-in-a-lifetime day perfect.

When

Second, only to choosing your destination is deciding the special date. Annually, nearly two-and-a-half million weddings are officiated in the United States, with September and October ranking as the two most popular months. If you are among the majority and would like to get married in the fall, plan for at least a year before you can secure a date.

Where

Every bride and groom are unique, possessing their own definition of a perfect wedding. Our country is peppered with gorgeous spots for your event. The majority of couples look to the southern half of the U.S. primarily for its characteristically balmy temperatures and beachfront access. Regardless of the time of year, if you dream of your toes in the sand as you wed, consider the Pine Mountain region in western Georgia.

How

The term, "destination wedding", can still mean marrying in a chapel in front of your friends and family. Many venues have churches on site. If you prefer a more outdoor setting, pick from various locations: the beach, stunning bridges, or roaming landscapes.

Who

Churches and receptions halls often limit your guest list simply by their square footage. Choose a destination wedding and invite everyone you know. There will be plenty of room for everyone to share in your celebration. Pre-wedding websites are another trend brides and grooms-to-be are employing. A wedding website tells your story. You can send out invites and your guests can rsvp immediately. Links for your registry, online hotel reservations for guests, menu selections, and more make up your personalized site.
