For many, a destination wedding seems to be the wedding of their dreams. However, this means many resources invested in the process and many obstacles as the process is advancing. From picking the right time and location, to establishing a guest list and managing the vendors, these all seem to be a real struggle for many. However, many found out that by choosing destination Sikh weddings might provide a pleasant final result. However, below you have some important tips that may help you in the process of organizing the perfect destination wedding.
Pick the perfect spot
The wedding location that you will pick determines the entire mood of the event, as well as the travel time and budget that will be necessary for organizing it. Generally, the spot selected should reflect the couple’s personality and preferences. So should the activities included in the event, and the general vibe. Something that says more than words could about your personal style as a couple, your culture, your religious affinities and so on. For instance, plenty of Sikh couples choose a destination wedding in a location with a great religious significance. Especially because they come from traditional backgrounds, it is necessary to meet all the expectations set by family, friends and culture.
Pick the right time
Unluckily, the perfect time for a destination wedding is oftentimes overlapping with the tourist season. However, if you pick a remote resort you are very likely to find the perfect weather and environment for organizing your dream wedding. Sikh couples, for instance, choose remote resorts in Jamaica, Cancun and other popular wedding destinations in the middle of the touristic season, and they still enjoy a private ceremony, a very traditional and clean ceremony, in a less-traditional destination. Make sure to book the flights in advance so you will be able to get flight tickets at discount prices.
Hire the right priest
Of course, many may opt for a local priest that they will find in the wedding destination. However, if you want to do it all by the book, you will bring a priest with you as well. For instance, a pair of Sikh priests may offer a completely different vibe to the entire event, not to mention that all traditions and rituals will be strictly followed. Why risk such an important aspect, when you have the option of bringing your own priest.
Pay attention to your vendors
This should be one of your main concerns, since you won’t be able to physically check every step they will follow. Better find reliable vendors, check for reviews online, see what the general opinion of former customers is, and then select the right vendor for you. Keep in mind that you won’t have the possibility to check every step that they take for your wedding, so it would be advisable to plan ahead with them on your first meeting.
These are some of the most important aspects one should follow for a successful destination wedding. Also, if you are interested in more specific weddings, like Sikh weddings, make sure to select all carefully and work with professionals, like the ones you can find at Sikh Destination Wedding.
