Destination Wedding FAQ

What are the advantages to a destination wedding?

Destination weddings tend to be smaller and more intimate. Destination weddings also double as a holiday for you, your family, and friends.

How do I choose a destination wedding location?

Affordability and accessibility for you and your guests will be a main factor. Be sure to research the weather and any potential travel warnings. Some locations may not be welcoming or appropriate for some guests due to their age, religion, disability or sexuality.

When do I notify guests of my destination wedding?

Save-the-dates should go out 8 to 12 months before the wedding. Official invitations should go out 3 to 4 months prior to the wedding.

Who pays for guest travel and accommodation at a destination wedding?

Typically the guests cover their own travel and accommodation expenses. However, it is important you make this clear. Even if you have reserved rooms, be sure to ask guests to book their own rooms. Consider offering options at various price points.

What else do I need to know about a destination wedding?

Countries have different requirements when it comes to recognising a marriage. Be sure to check local and Australian marriage requirements to ensure your marriage is valid in Australia when you return.
