How far in advance do I have to book my wedding at a resort?beachbridewpIf you have a specific date in mind, try and secure your wedding date with the resort as soon as possible. If you’re more flexible, you may be able to leave it more short notice. For wedding venues in England it is advised to book at least 2 years in advance, however for a lot of destination resort weddings you don’t have to wait as long – a year in advance is usually more than sufficient. Just remember that you’ll need to make sure that there are still flights and accommodation available for your chosen date.
I want a destination wedding but not at a resort, can Beach Bride help me with this?beachbridewpIn addition to wedding resorts, we also have independent wedding planners listed on the Beach Bride directory. These wedding planning companies are experienced in coordinating weddings outside of resorts. These independent planners arrange weddings at many different venues such as chapels, gardens, villas, and tavernas – to name but a few. You’re best having a look at some of the independent wedding planners in the country you’re interested in, and viewing the ceremony and reception venues they work with.
I have found a resort I’d like to stay at for my wedding holiday, but would like my wedding to take place outside of the resort – would the hotel wedding planner help arrange this?beachbridewpEven if you are staying at a resort, to be able to use the resort wedding planner you will usually have to have at least your wedding reception at the resort. Some resorts do allow you to have your wedding ceremony outside the resort at locations such as local chapels etc. but they usually need to be a venue already known to the resort. It’s worth checking with the resort which external ceremony venues they already have existing relationships with. If this isn’t an option, you’d be best having a look at some of the independent wedding planners in the area and they can help you arrange your wedding outside of the resort.
I have booked my wedding and accommodation at a resort, can my guests stay at other hotels?beachbridewpEach resort has different requirements so it’s definitely worth asking the question to the resort directly. The price of some resort weddings are significantly reduced or sometimes even free, but this is dependent on you having a certain number of guests booking to stay at the resort. However this isn’t always the case so please check if this is something you’re worried about.

I have emailed a resort using the email address provided but I haven’t had a response, what do I do now?beachbridewpResort wedding planners are very busy people and are often away from their desks making sure that everyone's weddings are planned to perfection - so please try to be patient. They will get back to you as soon as they can. But if it's been over a week there's a chance your email may have been missed, so please try emailing again.
If I book my wedding at a resort, do I have to book accommodation at that resort?beachbridewpWhilst every resort operates differently, there’s a good chance that you will be required to stay at the resort you have booked your wedding at. If you don’t wish to stay at the resort, please check with the resort directly before making your wedding booking.
