Some couples are prepared to postpone the date of their union. Preferring to start their preparations by setting a date 2 years or more in the future, they can be sure of a more serene future. Advanced organization becomes one of the keys to success. No detail should be overlooked and, depending on your destination, certain tasks may be more complex to manage.
Don't forget the time difference. This can complicate the task of communicating directly with your suppliers. You also need to find out about the administrative side of things. Passports, supporting documents, official documents... A successful wedding getaway requires methodical organisation. So having more time can be a real asset.

You'll also need to take into account travel time and accommodation for your guests. These items can represent a certain cost. Once again, you can obtain advantageous rates by planning ahead.
