A Beginner’s Guide To: Easy-to-Pack Decorations for a Dreamy Destination Wedding

Easy-to-Pack Decorations for a Dreamy Destination Wedding

Destination weddings are a fantastic choice for couples who do not fancy traditional, cookie-cutter weddings.  Weddings in far-flung, exotic locales are exciting and allow you to start your marriage in the most romantic way imaginable.

Nevertheless, planning a destination wedding presents a unique set of challenges, and one of them is decorating your venue as you please. You may have to settle for what is available at the venue, and this may not exactly match your vision.

Now, the good news is that you can always enhance your wedding décor with accessories from home, that are light-weight, compact, and easy-to-carry.

Here are some suggestions from the team at Best for Bride in Canada to help you choose wedding decorations that travel well.

Personalized buntings

Buntings are simple, but effective decorations that dress up even the simplest of spaces and add instant cheer. The options are endless; you can have strings of pom-poms for a Boho effect, shimmering polished golden flags for a glam look or rustic burlap flags strung together for a rustic, countryside theme. You can also create a massive impact with reams of bunting that occupy very little luggage space and are weightless.

For more inspiration on using buntings at your wedding, visit this post on Bridal Musings.

Whimsical paper lanterns

Add delightful pops of color to your venue with assorted paper lanterns in various shades and shapes that match your wedding theme. Not only do these lanterns fold flat, but they are also light-weight and easy to install. Suspend them from the ceiling using twine and enhance the effect with flickering lights for a pleasant glow. Use them in large numbers to instantly elevate the ambiance and wow your guests. Here are some fantastic décor ideas with paper lanterns on My wedding.  

Flickering Fairy lights

Soft, twinkling fairy lights will illuminate and add festive cheer to your wedding venue. These versatile decorations come in all colors and you can use them in many ways to create a magical effect. Add them to your centerpieces, wrap them around trees and bushes at an outdoor venue or hang them like a canopy from the ceiling and create a stunning starry overhead decor. There are more fantastic ideas in this post on Frugal2Fab that incorporate these budget-friendly decorations in many different ways.

3 Amazing Places for Your Destination Wedding

There are a lot of things you have to do before you are fully ready for your wedding. The dress, the wedding party, the music, the cake, but the thing you need to know first is the location. Often times, these places need to be booked so far in advance that the engagement ring is barely settled on your finger before you’re making that call. Some people prefer a more traditional venue, or a local place such as a courthouse or courtyard nearby. If you’re like me, though, you don’t want to get married in the same places you see every day on your way to work. You want your wedding to be special, memorable, and perfect. Let us help you out by showing you three of the most amazing and beautiful (not to mention exotic) places for your destination wedding.

1. Kauai

If you’re looking for the perfect destination that is still in the States, Hawaii is the best place to go. It’s secluded, beautiful, and Kauai is less populated than the other islands, so you’re more likely to have a fun, intimate experience. Also, the resorts there are fantastic and have some incredible bundles for weddings.

2. Italy

Nothing says ‘romance’ in quite the same way Italy does. From old, stone streets to beautiful vineyards, you are bound to find exactly the sort of location you want for your wedding. It has the old world charm. It has countless activities and other places to visit. It can even double as your honeymoon location.

3. Bermuda

A lot of places have beaches. A lot of places have incredible venues. But not every place has beaches as beautiful nor venues as flawless as Bermuda. The resorts alone are reason for going, and you can easily find quaint little pubs in the small towns there that have delicious food and amazing company. Want to make your wedding even more romantic? Visit the pink-sand beaches. They are absolutely breath-taking.

There are so many places in the world that need to be visited, and so many of them are absolutely perfect for a wedding. Finding the perfect match for your needs won’t be too hard at all, and in no time, you’ll be on that plane heading for your destination wedding!

Terrific Unique Destination Weddings For an Unforgettable Event

Styling and profiling

Best For Bride
Styling and profiling!

So, pretty much every bride has heard of the concept of a destination wedding. It’s certainly not for everyone of course, and depends entirely on how fortunate you are when it comes to your budget, and ultimately upon the choice of you and your groom. For those that are unfamiliar with these fun and flirtatious weddings, a destination wedding is one that takes place at an exotic or popular location a good distance away from where you live. Some people choose Los Angeles or Niagara Falls or Banff for their destination wedding, but some choose still more exotic and faraway lands for their nuptials. If you’re looking for a truly interesting experience for your to-dos, here are some truly fantastic suggestions for your destination wedding.

Stonehenge

One of the most recognizable prehistoric artifacts of all time, Stonehenge could make for a wedding you and your guests will never forget. Stonehenge carries a sense of mystery, dignity, and beauty unique to its location that is one of the many reasons it makes such a special locale for a wedding. Entrenched with power and mystique, the air is charged with positive energy, perfect for the beginning of your union.

Cozumel

Okay, so it’s not the most outlandish of locations, but it’s not as cliched or common as Vegas or Paris for a destination wedding, either (not that those aren’t gorgeous places to be wed and wonderful cities to visit!). If you want a getaway wedding that’s well-known, but less prominent, and want it at a beach locale, think no further than Cozumel. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Mexico, if not the world over, and is chock-full of beautiful venue options and the friendliest people in the world to make your dreams come true.

Disneyland or Disney World

Again, not unheard of, but still a unique and rare enough opportunity, and I just couldn’t stop myself from including these magical places on the list! What better way is there to feel like a real, live fairy princess, like your love and marriage is as magical as you feel that it is? Disney is synonymous with childhood joy, but those happy feelings more often than not carry over into adulthood. I know it has for me, and for enough others that Disney has packages to choose from for the particular purpose of having your special day at one of their amusement parks.

Picking a venue for your wedding is a hard decision to make. It’s an enormous part of your budget and takes serious time and consideration before you find the right one, and that’s if they have something available for you when you want it. Still, though, shouldn’t your special day be all that you’ve ever dreamed it would be? Whether you want the magic and wonder of Disney or the Celtic tradition and splendor of Stonehenge, you’re a bride that knows what she wants, and you should definitely go for it. You know, after talking it over with your partner!
