A Bride's Guide: How to Plan a Dreamy Destination Wedding Without Visiting the Venue


Destination Wedding Venue: Lake side pier

Welcome fellow brides! I'm thrilled to share my story on how I selected the ideal venue for my destination wedding, sight unseen. Here's a tip that worked wonders for me:

Firstly, narrow down your top venues within your budget range. Compare what each package includes and make a shortlist. For me, three venues stood out, offering similar amenities with slight differences in guest capacity.


Next, head to YouTube and search for wedding videos or films from those venues. Watch multiple videos, even those with varying quality, as each might reveal unique aspects. Credits to my husband, a professional photographer and videographer, for this ingenious idea. We wanted to hire both services, and this allowed me to visualize the possibilities and the overall ambiance.


Exploring wedding videos became my secret weapon to witness the venue's charm and imagine myself walking down the aisle, surrounded by loved ones. Unlike virtual tours or photo galleries, videos captured real interactions and revealed the venue's soul, providing an authentic experience. Witnessing its breathtaking beauty and envisioning our special day felt magical. And then it happened! A video from the venue that stole my heart appeared before me, revealing the sheer beauty that enveloped the couple's special day. It was everything I had imagined and more – a place where our love story would unfold amidst mesmerizing landscapes. This approach granted me peace of mind during the selection process.


Those wedding films proved to be the best virtual tours I could have ever asked for. They transcended the ordinary, showcasing authentic emotions and interactions within the venue. They laid bare the true heart of each location, surpassing the confines of photographs and brochures.


To all the adventurous souls planning a destination elopement without the luxury of an in-person visit, fear not. Embrace the world of wedding videos as your virtual guide. Let your imagination soar as you witness love stories blossoming in the very place you might call your own.


So, my fellow brides, if you find yourself planning a destination elopement without the luxury of an in-person visit, fear not. Embrace the world of wedding videos as your virtual guide. Let your imagination soar as you witness love stories blossoming in the very place you might call your own.
