We’re a little less than five months out from our tropical wedding in Mexico! I can’t believe how quickly time has been flying, but we gave ourselves quite a bit of time to plan (thank goodness!). There are tons and tons of wedding-planning websites and timelines and about half a billion pins on Pinterest offering help on when to do what. There are few that focus on destination weddings. I thought I would share some of the helpful timelines I have been using and somewhat following and then show you all what we have done so far and what we plan to do in the upcoming months.
A destination wedding is sometimes easier to plan because the resort does most of the work for you, that also can be quite expensive. You can plan as much of the wedding as you want, but you have to do it through email and a few (we’ve had one so far) international phone calls. It’s also tricky because people have to buy their flights much further in advance so save the dates and invitations have to go out much earlier than they do for a wedding close to home.
