Go With the Flow

One potential disaster that's impossible to correct is bad weather. Coordinate with the site director to formulate a rain plan, whether that's moving the ceremony inside or providing every guest with an umbrella.

Like all nuptials, destination weddings often hit snags along the way. These sticking points can be compounded thanks to language barriers, currency exchange issues and general unfamiliarity with the area and its residents. When problems arise, take a deep breath, evaluate the issue and correct the problem with help from the bridal party or other guests. Destination wedding experts often recommend that the happy couple arrive a few days in advance of the event to prevent or contain possible problems before they erupt. Above all else, don't let minor snags, like last-minute menu changes, ruin your big day. Instead, adopt a laid-back island mentality and enjoy your wedding to the fullest extent possible.
