There’s a continuous grumbling online about how tiresome having to travel to someone’s wedding can be. These people are not in the wrong. It takes time, energy and expense to attend a wedding, but of course, having to travel somewhere to do so can be a tough ask.

But as seasoned travelers, it might be that you and your spouse are looking to do this to add some worth to your wedding day. This is your wedding after all, and you should feel able to organize it how you like.

However, squaring that circle and not wanting your big day to be too inconvenient is sometimes hard to plan for. Never fear, because there are many measures you can take to help you travel for wedding events more readily, doing so with care, potential and thinking of other’s schedules, too.

In this post, then, we’ll discuss a few prime tips you can use to help your wedding day remain accessible even for those who have to travel to it. Let’s consider how that might work:

Keep The Event Smaller

It can be healthy to enjoy a smaller event and help those who are visiting it, such as buying half of each plane ticket that will be used to come and see you. Perhaps the event space you’re using has nearby hotels and package deals that will work well here, or maybe you can simply all travel together using a simple family deal to help you attend the spot for the weekend in the best possible light. With a smaller event, the expenses are reduced, and the justification for such a unique placement can grow.

Use Event Spaces That Understand

Beautiful event spaces that are used to hosting weddings and corporate events are often the best places to use, such as the outstanding beauty of Clevedon Hall. Here they’ll be able to make concessions for you such as recommending appropriate parking on the day, or perhaps helping you design and set up more easily despite the fact you can visit less due to travel costs. Then, when the big day happens, consulting with such a management team can help you move into the future with care and consistency, organization and knowing every provision has been considered ahead of time.

Make The Area Accessible

If you’re asking for people to come and travel to your particular wedding location, it’s a good idea to make sure all provisions are there and that comfort is assured. This is because asking for our families to take a long flight to see us get married is an inconvenience in itself, but if they have to hike through the woods to a special location, or wear only beach idea, or stand near a cliff face so you and your spouse can bungee jump after confirming your vows, well all of this can be amazing but also quite inaccessible and tough to focus on. Don’t be afraid to approximate a more humble event for the trouble of asking so many people to attend to you.

With this advice, we believe you’ll be able to travel for wedding events in the best possible context.

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.
