Are you worried about getting the most out of your destination wedding budget? Are you wondering what aspect of your destination wedding you should splurge on, and which one you should save money on? In this post, I will discuss the most important aspects of your destination wedding that you should splurge on that can make the difference between a good destination wedding, and an AMAZING destination wedding.
Yes, most of your guests are going to be with you at your resort for at least two days before the ceremony, so even though they are already having a memorable time with you, you really want your ceremony, cocktail, & dinner decor to stand out!. Your guests are only a few feet away from centerpieces, tableware, flowers, and your other decorations, so you want them to be memorable. Anything that your family and friends can see up close, touch or feel, is worth going the extra mile for.
Another area you definitely want to splurge on, is any type of special event you are going to host at the resort venue: Maybe your own special welcome reception, complete with your own unique mixologist or specialty cocktail made exclusively for your wedding group. You may want to have a fire show put on for your group or your own special beach party. What about a catamaran cruise for your wedding party and guests? You may want to go on a special excursion to a historic sight, play a round of golf at a championship golf course, or do rum or tequila tasting! Whatever is unique to your group. You want it to be quality all the way to ensure that everyone in your group creates memories that will last a lifetime!

You definitely want to splurge on your top entertainment package for your reception. This was the main event that everyone traveled to celebrate, and giving them rocking receptions will culminate your entire destination wedding on a high note! Make sure you can have input on the music list, and either you or your destination wedding designer should vet the DJs by looking at their reviews, and talking to the resort wedding coordinator, to make sure you book the dj you think will do the best job for your reception: Getting a lighted dance floor always adds a flash of fun and color to the mix, as well as having a firework show at the end of the night. The point is you want to send your family and friends home with a high from your wedding they won’t soon forget.
