Yesterday, Scott Fox of Kiss 92.5 was discussing destination weddings on the radio. Scott was telling his audience that they are fun but doesn’t like the fact that you have to choose which friend you like best if there are more than one in the same year. So what do you do if you are planning a wedding and your guests are already invited to another destination wedding?

-if there is a lot of cross over guests, see if you can agree on the destination and have both weddings during the same week(but on different days). Maybe one wedding is on the resort and one is off the resort? Maybe you can split the expenses of bringing your Wedding Planner?
-Space out the weddings so the guests have time to book time off work and save money for the next wedding. it doesn’t have to be a year apart but at least 6 months apart is nice.
-Make sure your Wedding Planner get’s group pricing so the guests can hold their flight+accommodation with a minimal deposit giving your guests time to save.
As I suggest with any of my couples. Check with your most important guests that they can make it and then go ahead and start planning. Any other guests are a bonus. You can’t please everyone with location/price/dates so try and accommodate the closest family and friends and you will hopefully be pleasantly surprised with the turn out!
