Destination Weddings

When you’re planning destination weddings in Georgia, you have a lot of options. You can whisk your guests away to a picturesque hotel in coastal Georgia or to the surrounding parts of the Southeast such as Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee. To help you plan, we invite you to explore the following vendors and keep reading for tips on creating a destination wedding.


Look for Beauty with Destination Weddings in Georgia

Whether you’re dreaming about Georgia beach weddings or a Savannah destination wedding, you need to choose somewhere beautiful. The point of traveling is to have a great backdrop behind your ceremony and in your photos, and if possible, you should tour your destination venues or spend a lot of time looking at photographs.

Also, look for a place where you and your guests can really relax. Remember, your guests are incurring the cost of a mini-vacation for your nuptials, and you want them to have fun as well.


Think About All the Costs

After narrowing down to a few ideas for their destination weddings, Atlanta couples need to start thinking about costs. Consider the costs you’re going to incur for renting the space, booking the caterer, setting up the bar, and taking care of other little details, but also, think about your guests’ potential costs.

How much is it going to cost to travel to that destination? How much are the rooms? What about food? Are those all costs your guests can reasonably afford? To keep costs affordable, you may want to consider all-inclusive wedding packages in Georgia. In some cases, you may want to cast a bit smaller of a net and just look for all-inclusive Savannah wedding packages or all-inclusive wedding packages in North Georgia.


Don’t Forget About Travel Logistics

As you look into the small details, remember to think about travel logistics, and try to make the trip as easy as possible for your guests. For instance, if there’s not a shuttle from the airport to your wedding venue, you may want to rent a few busses or passenger vans to help transport people. Similarly, you may want to give guests information on travel directions and accommodations when you send out the invitations.


Pair Destination Weddings with At-Home Receptions

If you have your heart set on destination weddings in Georgia but you’re afraid all your guests won’t be able to make it, consider taking a hybrid approach. For instance, maybe you want to have a small beach wedding followed by an intimate reception at a resort by the coast. Then, when you get home, you can throw a huge reception in your own community. That’s just one idea. There are all kinds of ways to combine a destination experience with some activities closer to home.
