Let's break down some of the biggest myths I've seen over and over again.
Myth #3: Destination weddings are a struggle to plan from afar.
Okay, this one isn't entirely untrue. Of course destination weddings are difficult to plan from afar. On top of the regular challenges of planning a wedding, you also have to contend with a language barrier, time zone differences, and vendors, venues, and locally-based planners may not be as responsive as one would expect (or even hope).
Plus, you may find yourself playing travel agent for their guests, fielding questions about travelers checks (you'd be surprised), TSA requirements, and local museum hours.
Meanwhile, you are likely planning an event of this magnitude for the first time; the learning curve is huge.
What are your biggest destination wedding planning challenges?
- Guest questions
- Waiting to hear back from vendors
- Researching vendors, venues, and design
- Stressing about day-of logistics
