You can request little extras for the night that you arrive. Example, flowers in the room, rose petals strewn all over the room, bubble bath and candles in the bathroom and whatever you would like. A great consultant will take care of your requests.
The location of the wedding is very important. You could get married at your local church or plan a destination and resort. Paris, Venice, India and Bali amongst others are all great options for a destination and resort. Most places have all the arrangements that are required for a destination and resort. You can even contact a local wedding planner or hire one in your own town.
Or following in the unusual style you can even go to more exotic locations. The Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal, anywhere far off and fun. This sort of wedding is obviously heavily dependent on your budget and the finances of your guests.
As the wealthy traveled in from all over the country, the Frisco Railroad laid track in from Seligman, Missouri and the resort brought the wealthy up from the station via carriage. “Once there, the guest could not only enjoy the healing waters of the spa, but also a stable of 100 sleek-coated horses, tea dances in the afternoon, and elaborate parties every evening with a full in-house orchestra.” (Kathy Weiser) The result was ease of access and luxury in plethora. It brought the gilded age to the heart of the Ozarks.
BUT if you’re planning a wedding in the summer, keep in mind it is hurricane season in the Caribbean. There are still options, though, like Europe or resorts on the Pacific that generally have a “wet” rather than “hurricane” season. Hey, if the price is right, you may want to take the risk.
On the flip side, if you hire someone on the location of this person will be familiar with the area. With the hiring person from its exotic location, you will not have to pay any travel fees, such as flights or accommodation. In addition, they know what points are needed in the country. This is important because if you hire someone from the U.S., they need to know what is compatible with their software. Otherwise, you’ll have a photographer without the ability to charge the batteries.
Passive brides are the ones who get stuck paying premium prices. The wedding vendor needs you more then you need them. Their business is based on you making a purchase with them. Don’t be afraid to ask for a slight discount. Be certain that you do shop around and compare prices. You should check prices with 3 to 5 different vendors for every item or service that you need.
