Top 6 Proper Etiquettes For Hosting A Destination Wedding In Cancun
Planning a wedding in Cancun far away from your home will come with extra considerations, and a lot of fun, of course. Before you start planning all the details, you must take some time and understand the proper etiquette of hosting a destination wedding in Cancun. After all, it is only with proper communication and excellent planning that you will be able to keep your guests happy.
Proper etiquettes for hosting a Cancun wedding
1. Hire an experienced wedding planner
It will not be possible for you to arrange everything for everyone all by yourself. So, ensure you are getting the best help there can be. For Cancun Wedding, couples have always trusted Riviera Cancun Weddings – a wedding planner who has over 10 years of experience. They will ensure everything is well-arranged for your guests and everyone has a comfortable and fun-filled stay.
2. Give your guests enough time to plan
As soon as you decide to host a wedding in another country, it is crucial to inform your guests about the same at the earliest. Send out your ‘save the date cards with the destination and other important details. It is best if you do so at least 10 months to 1 year before the wedding date. Yes, this is the amount of time you need to give your guests so they can book affordable tickets, arrange other things like childcare, or pet care, plan their leaves, etc.
3. Give due consideration to your guest’s budget
You cannot expect all your guests to spend their life savings just to attend your wedding. So, talk to your wedding planner in advance and check if you can get any bulk discounts on flight bookings and accommodations.
4. Host a welcome party
Yes, this is an important thing to do. Your family and friends are traveling a long way and are going to spend several days together. So, host a welcome party and give everyone a chance to mingle with each other. Also, don’t forget to write down a ‘thank you’ speech and give a welcome hamper/gift to every guest upon their arrival.
5. Be mindful when you are planning different events
Every guest attending your destination wedding will be a part of every party or event that you host. However, you can keep your list short for the rehearsal dinner. This is a more intimate function, and thus only the immediate family of the bride and groom and very close friends need to attend. However, you can always plan your welcome party right after the rehearsal to ensure no guest feels left out.
6. Book a sensible wedding venue
Yes, Cancun is just breathtaking, and probably every corner of this beautiful city is worth considering as a wedding venue. However, since you will be having plenty of guests arriving from different countries, it is best if you choose a venue that is more practical and accessible for everyone.
