Destination Wedding Tips

Ahhh Style Me Pretty they’ve done it again! We love checking out the awesome weddings on SMP but just last week they posted a blog with tips for planning a destination wedding which coincides perfectly with our latest trailer that went up on Friday. Destination weddings are great, we’ve worked on a few in Italy with Brenda from Italia Celebrations she seems to make everything a breeze for brides pulling together a range of amazing suppliers and making sure the whole celebration goes without a glitch!

If you’re thinking of having a destination wedding check out the blog by Lindsay from Fleur de Sel who’s a Blogger Bride on SMP at the moment as she’s planning her wedding just outside Versailles.

SMP Destination Wedding Tips


Our favourite tip from Lyndsay is:

‘MAKE IT AUTHENTIC:┬áIf you decide to have a wedding in a foreign country, you might be the only couple of your family and friends who does it, so take that opportunity to really showcase the elements of the food, culture and decor of the region, and give it a unique style that will distinguish it from the traditional, domestic weddings we have all been to.

Also, be aware and respectful of the cultural differences in the region. For example, caterers in France are not used to the American custom of providing guests with multiple options for the main course, and instead of forcing this American custom onto our caterer, we decided to just go with the flow and selected one main course that we feel our guests will all enjoy.’
