Whether you are eloping to Tahiti (well that’s actually the Islands of Tahiti and that includes Moorea, Taha’a, Rangiroa, Bora Bora, to name just a few), or you are having a destination wedding in Tahiti, and inviting your guests to join you at your Moorea wedding, what are the first things to consider when you start planning? Find out here.
3 Things You Should Think Of Before You Start Planning
Your Destination Wedding In Tahiti
1. Which Island(s) Would We Like To Visit?
If you’ve settled on a destination wedding in Tahiti, or even just an elopement, you’ve probably figured out by now that the Islands of Tahiti (French Polynesia) are spread over a surface of about the size of Europe… this gives you lots and lots of options for your stay! Whether you choose to stay on just one island for the entire time, or to do some island hoping and visit a few will determine where best your destination wedding in Tahiti is to be held.
With the exception of (capital island) Tahiti’s sister-island Moorea, or the well-known Bora Bora, where most wedding vendors will be available, any other place will have super limited or non existent options for make-up, hair, photographer etc. and you will need to consider flying those vendors from Tahiti. This can quickly add up to the bill, especially if they also need to overnight at your place if there isn’t a return flight for them to go back home on the same day.
2. What Is Our Ideal Budget For The Day?
Nobody likes to think of the money constraints of wedding planning, but having an approximate idea of what would ideally be your budget for the day will help you and/or your wedding planner in Tahiti to determine what your options will be.
Your guest list (if any) will also largely determine many of your planning decisions, as not all places in the Islands of Tahiti can accommodate any size of groups, so you will want to have a rough count of the people who will likely be traveling with you. Determining your budget from the start will help you to make confident and informed decisions throughout the planning process.
3. What Is Most Important To Us?
When you think of your destination wedding in Tahiti, what comes to mind first? What is your vision? Some people will want to make sure they spend as much quality time with their loved ones as possible, not just on the wedding day but during the entire vacation, other couples will prefer to leave much freedom to their guests, meet up for the wedding and concentrate on having fun on the wedding day, while it is of greatest importance to some others that the décor and photos are beautiful, in which case a separate photo shooting on a different day or ample time for photos on the day is accounted for (think trash the dress photos, photos around the island, in the nature etc.) from the start.
