So your guy has proposed, and you’ve decided that a beach or mountain wedding would be perfect setting for you to make the most important vows of your lives. Perhaps it’s at a favorite vacation spot or maybe it’s someplace you’ve both always dreamed of going. Either way, you’ve decided on a destination wedding, and you want to make it perfect.

The problem is that destination weddings require an additional level of planning and effort compared to one held in your city or hometown. You have to factor in accommodations for your guests, a location you may not be too familiar with, transportation for the bridal party and possibly the wedding guests as well, the lack of a local support system, and more.

If you’re just starting to plan out your big day and big event, check out the gallery below for tips.
