But when you decide to plan a destination wedding, there’s a lot that goes into it: airfare, venue, ceremony, reception, flowers, accommodation, ecc …
To help you not spend too much money we thought these little tips for you.
Ditch the decor
A huge plus of destination weddings is that the beautiful location pays for itself!
With a destination like Italy – Rome, Tuscany or Costiera Amalfitana -your ceremony and reception will be decorated by nature or by monuments, historical buildings and art.
Keep the guest list small
A positive aspect of the destination wedding is the number of guests that will never be high and therefore you can save money
you’ll be able to save a lot of money by only inviting your closest friends and family. Keep your guest list small.
Pick an unpopular date
There will likely be popular dates at the venue you choose for your destination wedding where the price is higher than usual. Pick a less acquired date to save. Instead of getting married on the usual Saturday, get married on a weekday
Make it all-inclusive
With all of the moving parts of a destination wedding, try to cut costs by booking an all-inclusive plan. If you can find a bundle for you and your partner that covers your flights, hotel stay, and excursions around the resort, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of money.
Set a realistic budget
The most important part of planning any wedding, especially a destination wedding, is setting a realistic budget that works with your personal finances.
Figure out how much you have to spend so that you can stick to that dollar limit throughout the planning process. In order to avoid going over what you can afford, you can ask the Italian wedding planner the installment of the total amount.
See you in Italy, at your big day!
