Having a destination wedding miles away from home means you’re in for a much more intimate ceremony and can basically enjoy a two-for-onewedding and honeymoon. But planning such an event is no easy feat. Before jetting off to a foreign land to marry your love, there are some important details to consider. We sat down with planner Laurie Arons, who knows a thing or two about throwing a fantastic wedding. Whether you’ve decided on a tropical celebration in the Bahamas, an island fête in Bali, or a romantic getaway in Tuscany, we’ve got all of the bases covered, from choosing the perfect venue to coordinating every last detail on the big day. When deciding on a destination, keep in mind that it must be safe and have all of the resources you need. That charming beach town where you spent your childhood summers won’t work if its one hotel can’t accommodate all your guests or any of their accessibility or childcare requirements. Also, ensure there are no recent travel warnings, political issues, or health concerns in the region—if there are and you remain undeterred, make sure your guests are fully informed—and none of your guests will feel uncomfortable due to their religion, gender, or sexual preference.
