Destination weddings can be a lot of fun, especially when they’re planned just right. Lucky for you, Hilton Head is the perfect spot for a destination wedding. There’s no need for special travel documentation, and you still get those beautiful beachfront views! Check out these tips to make your special day picture perfect.

  1. Pick the Perfect Venue

Ah, the big question – on the beach or on a boat? Hilton Head can accommodate you either way. Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort specializes in wedding packages to make your wedding special for everyone in attendance. If you prefer to bring your guests aboard a ship, look into Vagabond Cruises. With eight different cruise packages, you can surely find one that fits your style and budget.

  1. Consider the Date and Time

Although Hilton Head has beautiful weather during most of the year, keep in mind that not too many people will be excited to be on the beach in the winter. Conversely, a summer wedding might be a little warm at noon, but sunset I Dos would be beautiful. You’ll have to take hurricane season into consideration as well.

  1. Think of Your Guests

Remember that although you want everyone to partake in your happy occasion, not everyone will be able to make the trip. Those who are very special to you (family, bridal party, etc.) may need a little financial help to attend. Putting aside a little extra for this cause can go a long way in your relationship. For those who are able to make it, remember that they may have sacrificed something to come. A special welcome bag (complete with items that may be helpful during their stay) would be a thoughtful way to show your gratitude.

There are plenty things to remember when you are planning your special day. When you decide to spend it at Hilton Head, you’ll find plenty of help making your wedding just right.
