Deciding on what kind of theme your big day should have might be one of the most crucial parts of wedding planning, and even more so when it’s a destination wedding. In my years of experience as a destination wedding planner, I’ve found that while this is a more laid-back type of event for couples, they feel pressured to create an experience for their guests that’s like no other, given the effort guests put forth to make the trip. If you’re one who’s determined to make your big day as unique as possible, take a look at these 5 lovely themes that are perfect for destination weddings and find one that inspires you.

Meet a Wedding Vendor in Newberry, FL: TravelBash (1)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Courtnie Nichols, Owner & Founder of TravelBash based in Newberry, FL! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a coach’s wife and mama to a four-legged baby, Zoe. TravelBash was formed on the premise of inspiring people to celebrate more through travel. For me, travel is about escaping the daily routine and chasing the horizon that creates adventure, romance, discovery, and growth. It’s about loving the people we’re with and diving headfirst into everything the world has to offer. Travel is about becoming our best selves and using every last vacation day. I now get to plan extraordinary events and out of this world experiences for clients that are just as travel-obsessed as I am. I have lived and explored all over the US and Europe but currently live in Gainesville, Florida. When I am not boarding a plane or strolling the Caribbean, you can find me somewhere between college hoops and happy hour.

Do you dream of a destination wedding in Italy? If so, today’s post from Chiara of  Wedding Marche (Macerata, Italy) is for you! Enjoy:

Have you ever dreamed of living a “romantic getaway”? Of taking a plane and flying to one of the Countries of love par excellence such as Italy and marrying in the land of Paolo and Francesca, of Romeo and Juliet, of Dante and Beatrice… and to come back with the wedding bands on the fingers, fresh and relaxed after a honeymoon enriched by the sea, sun, countryside, history and culture?

My style vision was elegant but simple. We wanted our wedding ceremony to be held outdoors with views of the sea, so chose Le Ciel in Imerovigli as our venue for the wedding and reception.
