Destination Wedding Planning
With the beginning of March the wedding planning season has started in India. Be it summer or winter planning the type of wedding destination wedding or traditional one is a task for bride & groom. In my opinion destination wedding is getting more popular than ever. Inspired by the heavy weight destination weddings, now we all are planning something similar to make that two – three day event the most memorable one in our life. Destination wedding planning is no more rocket science hence you have plenty of tools and companies who can do the job.
Let me explain how destination wedding is different from the traditional wedding. In one word it is all about experience and entertaining yourself in a manner which prints on your mind forever.
The concept of destination wedding is emerging as hot favourite topic among the wedding planners along with the families and couples who planning for something different in their wedding. In modern times, Couples themselves also put lot of effort in destination wedding planning. They meet the different vendors such as managers from hotels, photographer, DJ, the band-walas, choreographer etc. to make their day count. Destination wedding is one such concept which is more than affordable. For e.g. A couple may plan their dream destination wedding in Udaipur / Jaipur / Jaisalmer / Jodhpur about Rs. 25 - 30 laces (of course the cost may rise up as the guests or other demands shoots up).
Destination wedding is not only affordable but accessible too. Unlike the public perception of destination wedding, a destination wedding is not usually organized at far flung or remote places. Royal cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer are few in Rajasthan which can accommodate the boutique destination wedding concept. Now, we do not need services of a wedding planner to organize a whole thing but at the same time it does not mean that we need to take the full burden. Hotels / resorts who organize or an expert in planning and hosting boutique destination weddings offers full platter of range of services. The customization can be done as per the preference of “partners in crime – for lifetime”, our bride & groom. In any destination wedding planning comfort remains the primary objective. First the comfort of the two families comes into play followed by the comfort ability of guests.
Destination wedding planning can be allocated in following parts or components:
- Destination wedding city
- Wedding venue (hotel / resort)
- Number of days of wedding
- Number of rooms required
- Food Menu
- DJ / Band / Musical nights
- Ritual Charges (pundits)
One can also refer the boutique Destination Wedding Cost Calculator to estimate the cost while being at home and at planning stage.
