Finding the perfect location for your destination wedding, can make or break your dream of having the perfect I Do in paradise. In fact, the wedding venue you choose can make all the difference between destination wedding bliss or failure… If you don’t believe me, just look at some of the many famous actors and actresses who choose special wedding venues to have their big day. Jennifer Lawrence and her fiancée Cooke Maroney, chose to get married at the historic Belcourt of Newport in Rhode Island. It is known for being haunted, if you believe in that or not, but for a late October wedding, it was very appropriate! It also fit both Lawrence and Cooke’s vision for their perfect day in every way.

Lesson 1: Choose a wedding venue that meets your vision for the perfect destination wedding!

Do you want to get married on the beach, or with the beach and water in the background but you don’t want your feet in the sand. There are certain resort venues who have a set up for that and some that don’t. Choosing the resort that has the set up you want will eliminate frustration and keep you in bliss mode.

Lesson 2: Choose your guest list wisely!

Lawrence and Maroney had around 140 guests, which included the likes of Kris Jenner, Emma Stone, Amy Schumer as well as Adele, just to name a few. These were all people that Jennifer Lawrence and Maroney wanted at their wedding to help make their wedding day special. You should only invite those family and friends who will make your wedding special.  Of course there will always be that great aunt your mother tells you has to be invited, so it isn’t always perfect!

Lesson 3: Host a rehearsal dinner that allows for local charm

Authentic buffet, assorted fresh fruits, berries and citrus. Preparation for design creative menu.

Lawrence and Maroney hosted a clambake reception on Friday evening before their wedding which fit perfectly with the Boston Rhode Island locale of their wedding. You should try to include some of the local fair in your guest reception, such as having Jerk Chicken kabobs, with conk fritters…

Lesson 4: Having a themed menu!

Jennifer Lawrence and Maroney had a delicious harvest spread of squash, carrots, smoked fish, and beef along with a food truck that provided late night sandwiches for everyone as the night continued on. You will have many great options to create a food theme for your cocktail party and reception. Good quality resorts will give you a great variety of menu choices for your wedding reception.

Lesson 5: Make sure you have the right dress for a destination wedding

Jennifer Lawrence got married in colder fall weather so she wore a long sleeved, beaded, French Label Dior gown.  When you are in a warm tropical setting, you will definitely want a dress with short sleeves, or no sleeves along with a light material dress that keeps you comfortable during your big day. Get these five things right and you will have an amazing destination wedding as well.
