Host These Events For An Unforgettable Wedding


One of the coolest things about a destination wedding is having your loved ones in one place. Conversely, the most stressful thing about your destination wedding is having your loved ones in the same place, at the same.damn.time. Of course they’re in the destination to celebrate you and your fiancée, but what will they do until then? How will you keep them entertained? Want to plan an unforgettable wedding? Because you’ll have the week/weekend at your disposal, we suggest you host these five events for an unforgettable wedding celebration:

Welcome Cocktail Reception

It’s at least 2 nights before the wedding and everyone has arrived at the location, so what better way to get everyone together and do some introductions? Nothing like a tall glass of wine or an ice-cold beer (with hors d’ourves) after traveling from home to the wedding destination.

Destination Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties

With your craziest girlfriends and wildest bros in one place, why not have another bachelor/bachelorette party? Whoever came up with the saying “one and done” couldn’t have had any fun…right? Better yet, if you’ve each had your respective parties; having everyone in the same place, same time…..try a combined one! We’ll leave it up to your discretion on when to have this party. Our recommendation: don’t have it the night before the wedding, especially if you have an early morning event.

BBQ and Bonfire

The perfect night before the wedding event, a bbq and bonfire gives people the opportunity to talk a little more (after meeting at the welcome reception), but also kick back and relax. And, who would resist some good food while doing it?

Wedding After Party

Because all of your guests are on vacation, they relish in the opportunity to party a little harder than they typically would (if at home). Your guests will still be in party mode (if your reception was lit!), so host a late night wedding after party at a local hangout, a bar at the resort, or book another venue to continue the festivities.

Morning After Brunch

Because….brunch! We all love a good brunch. Hosting a morning-after-the-wedding brunch is the perfect way to culminate the week’s/weekend’s festivities. With a decent spread, bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s, this event is sure to be a hit. The perfect end to an unforgettable wedding week/weekend.
