The beauty of getting married outside of home is that you and your guests have greater chances of being able to do something that you all haven’t tried before. Aside from the change of ambience destination weddings provide endless possibilities when it comes to recreational activities. If you are planning to have your wedding in another country or in your country but someplace far, check the activities offered by your destination of choice.

Here are some ideas:

Light some paper sky lanterns.

Lighting sky lanterns has been very popular over the last few years. This is because the lanterns produce a beautiful fiery glow at night, making them look like little jewels in the sky. If you wish to light sky lanterns on your wedding, make sure you get a clearance first as not all places are safe for sky lanterns.

Schedule a spa day with the girls.

If you’re the bride, you can take some time to relax at the spa with your MOH and your bridesmaids. This is the perfect time to catch up with each other and savor your last few days of being single. Spa treatments are also a good way to relieve the wedding planning related stress.

The men can spend time at the golf course.

The golf course can be a great bonding area for the guys. The groom can play golf with his parents and in laws, as well as his groomsmen.

Have a luau reception.

People love the laidback kind of partying. Luau is a good party model because it is outdoors, there’s lots of food, and there’s plenty of merrymaking. You can rent fire dancers, hula dancers, and your guests can all dress light and tropical. They will love it!

Go on a cruise—all of you.

If your guest number is just small, take all of them to a sunset cruise if your destination is a waterfront location. It will be something that you can all enjoy together and something that will prep the appetite in time for the reception.

Have a candy bar.

If you and your fiancé have a sweet tooth and you love candies, make sure that you have a candy bar on your wedding. Ring pops, jelly beans, M&M’s, Skittles, and jawbreakers will definitely bring out the kid in everyone. It would also be nice if you have a popcorn and cotton candy station.

Arrange a wine tasting tour.

If your chosen destination is known for world class wines, then take your guests to an educational wine tasting tour. Walking along the vineyards is very relaxing and being able to taste high quality wines is even more satisfying.

Learn how to cook the local cuisine.

It is always fun to get cozy with a cuisine. A cooking demo with an expert will help you get a grip of the dishes that represent your chosen wedding destination.

Planning a destination wedding could be fun if you have plenty of inspiration. Remember these ideas when you plan for your wedding.
