Destination weddings can be the perfect solution for couples who want to truly make their wedding a family event but planning an event from a great distance can be challenging. Here are the things you can do locally that can make your planning process a little easier.

Find a local stationery company to help get your invitations designed to match your event as well as your programs. By working with a local company you can see the paper and ink colors and make changes to create a stationery suite.
Find a local photographer you love and have them do your ESession. If you find someone you really click with, you may even think about having them come photograph your wedding as well. Many photographers love to travel and you’ll need to pay for their travel expenses but it is definitely worth it to get your day captured with photographs you will love forever.
If your ceremony is within 24 hours of your departure you can have a local florist make your bouquet and carry it on the plane during the flight. If your ceremony is later than 24 hours look for a fabric or jeweled bouquet, like the ones from WhimWed. You can also purchase you accessories locally.
Obviously you will want to purchase your gown and your bridesmaids attire locally as well as purchase or rent your groom and groomsmen tuxes.
