Why You Should Have A Destination Wedding Website

So you’ve booked your destination wedding, most of your guests have paid, and there’s only a few months left until show time…

Now for the

planning of the wedding week! Listen up folks,

this one will definitely help you out.

Couples often ask- will we have time for ourselves? Are we going to be the go-to people for every single question? Is everyone going to be asking us the same thing over and over again? Well, to be honest, in most instances this can be the case… This is why I suggest having a wedding website from the very beginning that has all of these questions answered, and a sheet everyone can print so that everyone already knows what’s going on. You can even print it for them and include it in their “welcome packages” when they arrive at the resort. It can include all the wedding, resort, and travel information. You can thank them for being a part of your big day, and share personal information like pictures, when you met, how he proposed, etc.

I know in some families there would be aunties, cousins, friends and uncles having all of their days and activities mixed up, so if your guests are anything like this, you would definitely need this too.

I find it great communication between you and your guests, and allows for everyone to have the correct information ahead of time. You can also throw in a Facebook Group too, have your agent be one of the admins, and this way guests can ask questions directly, interact with each other, plan scuba diving trips together, etc. Can you imagine how much excitement this builds for everyone? (Not to mention how many phone calls and emails you can avoid?)

Topics that would be great to cover in your website and information sheet would be things like:

  •  Departure/Arrival dates and times
  •  How far in advance to arrive at the airport
  •  How long the ride is from the airport to the resort
  •  Information and pictures of the resort
  •  What day are any group activities happening (excursions, welcome cocktail party, farewell dinner, wedding rehearsal, basically when and where they have to be)
  •  Events happening in town while you’re there
  •  Excursions available for guests
  •  Expected weather forecast
  •  If there’s an adult only section at the resort
  •  If there is a “kid’s camp” section at the resort
  •  Currency accepted at your destination

I would also suggest having a go-to person listed for anyone that does have questions, like a Best Man or a Maid of Honor, so they could ask them instead of bombarding you. Being organized and prepared will help you to have a much more relaxed vacation, trust me on that one. And another plus? Guests will know when they can plan their own personal time on vacation, and they will know when YOU will be having yours.
