Communication is Key

Paulette Alkire, wedding planner with destination venue Chalet View Lodge advises that when it comes to communicating with clients, the goal should be "early and often".

"As soon as you set the date, it's paramount to inform the guests," Alkire explains. "There are so many moving pieces with a destination wedding: booking travel, childcare, taking time off from work. Be mindful of this and make sure it's a priority to spread the word, even if it means foregoing the standard Save-the-Date and spreading the word virtually."
