Destination’s climate and culture

Every couple has their own style (beach lovers, culture seekers, foodies), and you want a destination that mirrors that. Wherever you go, look for a venue that matches your vibe and provides experiences for everyone.


Invite Early

Guests will need more time to plan, so send save-the-date notices as early as possible – six months out is ideal.


Vet Your Vendors

Use your travel advisor not just for travel help but also for leads on local florists and DJs. If you fly a photographer in from home, know that some countries require a local work permit.


Marriage Requirements

Couples wishing to marry in Panama must provide original birth certificates, health certificates and passports. Divorce and death decrees are required if necessary.
