Take a minute to imagine your dream destination wedding. It probably will include a gorgeous white dress, handsome tuxedoes, the perfect mix of flowers and colors, and an excellent location tucked away somewhere in Utah's mountain ranges. While all of these things probably immediately come to mind when you think of your perfect Utah destination wedding, there are other smaller elements, that take a lot of planning, but will help make your event stand out as one of the best moments of your life. Here are some things to consider as you plan your wedding.
1. Hiring a Band
There's nothing worse than going to a wedding, only to find people standing around wondering why the DJ is playing atrocious music. To avoid this, consider hiring a live and popular wedding band to help you celebrate your joyous occasion right. Of course you can hire a band that travels around the nation, or you can hire one of the outstanding wedding bands in Utah. When hiring a band, make sure you know what kind of tunes you want to dance to, and your wedding band booking agent will hook you up with the perfect entertainment.
2. Catering Company
The next thing you want to consider is what you will feed your guests. If you are planning a destination wedding, chances are your guests are going to be coming from afar and will be hungry. Consider checking out a local catering company, or if you want to save some money, and make sure your food is fresh and ready, try ordering right off the menu of your destination venue.
One surefire way to make sure your guests are comfortable is to help them arrange for affordable travel. Of course you can plan your wedding when tickets to Utah are cheaper by avoiding the summer surge and the ski season, but if this is unavoidable, there are other ways to help your guests save. Consider booking a group rate at local Utah hotels and arranging for transportation.
4. Hire a Wedding Planner
You may have all the big details worked out, but the stress of a figuring out the small details can leave you frazzled. In order to avoid this, simply pick your wedding band, colors, cake, and dress yourself, and leave the rest to a wedding planner.
5. Enjoy Utah
If you are coming to Utah for your destination wedding, you may want to plan a couple of days to enjoy this great state. Plan the first few days of your honeymoon relaxing at one of Utah's Park City Lodges, shop at the outlets, visit a spa, hike in the mountains, visit Sundance, or take the trip to Southern Utah. Utah is one of the most beautiful states, so take advantage of it while you are here for your wedding.
