When you start thinking about your wedding, then it is always amazing to think big. However, envision your wedding day and identify. Whether you want your wedding on a white sandy beach or in the middle of a big city. Understand the whole picture clearly. Because you can never focus on other details if your vision isn’t clear.

When it comes to setting a date for your wedding day, then make sure to consider the weather. Because bad weather can make your day bad. Consider your wedding location and choose a cool yet bright day to enjoy your big day to the fullest.

4.      Research marriage laws and requirements of your destination

Before jetting off to any far-flung destination, research properly to understand the marriage requirements of that place.
