Shenderey Events creates perfect events worldwide as well as in the UK, as more and more clients opt for planning an event abroad. Be it a wedding, birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvah or a corporate event, here is a list of dos and don’ts for planning your destination event…

Planning an Event Abroad: Here’s What You Should Do

Do…

Decide on your budget and who is paying what. Will you be paying for guest accommodation and flights or expect them to pay for themselves? Will you be paying for all meals during the event weekend?

Do…

Really think about your location before deciding. A beach wedding in Mauritius may be your idea of a dream wedding but will the travel costs and time mean many of your guests won’t be able to share your day with you.

Do…

Visit before you book – especially at the time of year you want your event. Check out the weather, activities, light and accommodation for your guests. After all you would never book a venue at home before visiting!

Planning an Event Abroad? Here’s What You Shouldn’t Do

Don’t…

Forget legal paperwork – this is especially relevant for weddings. Every country has its own requirements. Some countries require you to be ‘resident’ in the country for a certain time before being legally allowed to marry.

Don’t…

Forget to ensure you get everything in writing before you pay any bills.

Don’t…

Be taken in by very cheap deals. Although it’s often cheaper to have an event abroad, make sure you know what is included in your package and what extras will need to be paid for.
