Are you flying off to a special destination for your wedding? It might be so you can keep it small or it might be a central location because you have family all over the world. What ever the why is, there is no reason you can't still indulge in some wedding traditions.
Many brides feel it's all to hard to arrange a beautiful bomboniere or wedding favour for their destination. Or they find their options very limited if they are bringing them from home. The other common concern is they are more expensive if sources in the destination country/ location. I'm here to tell you it is easier than you think and you have almost as many options as someone having their wedding at home.
The secret? There are a couple of considerations, well THREE to be precise.
1. Check the regulations of the destination and your airline.
There may be restrictions on what you can bring into a country or location. Australia has some of the strictest food import laws but many destination wedding locations are fairly relaxed.
Airline guidelines are ever changing, so it's always an idea to check. My recommendation is to take your package of goodies as hand luggage. So you need to consider size and weight. If you are travelling in a group, it is easier to distribute this so it has very little impact.
2. Consider the weather and the length of the trip.
Are you travelling in the height of summer for 12 hours? This will eliminate some options. If it is only a short trip in summer, there are ways to mitigate the heat. This is a good conversation to have with your supplier. They can advise you on how well their products travel.
3. Talk to a supplier who can package your favours for the trip.
Ask your supplier if they can add a little extra protection. Those who ship items regularly will do this with ease.
With a little bit of research and the right person by your side the whole process is much easier than you first thought. Please get in touch if you would like to chat about your destination wedding.
