You probably have heard of destination weddings and their level of excitement. But why limit your dream of travelling worldwide and celebrating weddings only? You can also implement the same idea to enjoy any party: a birthday party, a family gathering, or an exclusive anniversary celebration. Perhaps, having a particular destination in mind for a special birthday or anniversary adds to the festivity and excitement. If this idea seems fascinating, continue reading to learn how to throw an unforgettable destination party!
Imagine a five-day private party at a well-known beach with a new theme every evening, a fireworks show, and a seven-tier birthday cake when wrapping up the event. Alternatively, an exclusive gathering of selected VIP guests at your family functions to make it a memorable occasion.
Create a Planning Team
The secret to hosting a successful party is delegation. It’s imperative when preparing for an event in a foreign country, where time zones and communication obstacles can make preparation difficult. Make one reputable local person your key person, and be explicit about the assistance you require.
If you have the budget, you can also consider hiring a local event planner who can help streamline the planning process without any major troubles.
Give Your Guests Time To Prepare
Even if you’re unclear about precise details, send “save the date” invitations as soon as you have a date and location. Ideally, it is recommended to send the invites months in advance. If you are visiting a nearby place and only for a few days or over a weekend, you can send the invite a few weeks prior.
This allows guests to clear their schedules, make necessary reservations, track flights, and take advantage of flash bargains.
Double Check Every Arrangement
Even if you have a planning team for your destination party, it would be wise to double-check every arrangement on your own. It includes checking the details of the flights, hotel or venue reservations, catering service, event security (especially if you have VIP guests or hosting a private party), music band, and others.
Many people often neglect the importance of having event security for their party; however, it is critical. Their security personnel will help check the credentials of the guests and visitors, scan the belongings of guests, and assist you in emergencies.
Create Goody Bags For Guests
Visit a craft or discount store to find some unique, fitting small gifts, or you can look online. For example, guests attending a party in D.C. could appreciate imitation soap dishes, while beach partygoers might appreciate flip-flops or a tote bag. Check customs requirements and packing limits if your celebration takes place outside your country. It will ensure that your guests can bring back beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
Nevertheless, make sure to enjoy these celebrations. Participate in all the games, dance with your partner or family members, and enjoy the delicious food of your favourite destination.
The idea of a destination party may seem quirky, but it will surely give you unforgettable memories. So, consider this small guide and throw a party that your family and guests have never seen before.[mailerlite_form form_id=9]
