There is a general misconception that planning a destination wedding is a piece of cake. That it is somehow “easier” than planning a traditional wedding. While it certainly does have it’s advantages, destination weddings also present a unique set of challenges. Namely, choosing planners, photographers, vendors and venues unseen. Ofcourse there is mother nature to contend with, noncommittal guests, picking a menu without tasting it and transporting a bridal gown in the overhead compartment of a plane to name a few.
