Designer Spotlight: Destination Weddings

Hello. My name is Andrea; I am a Graphic Designer and Product Developer for Weddingstar. I am so excited to be a part of Weddingstar’s Wedding Blog and hopefully share some thoughts that will help those who are planning for their special day.

Since destination weddings are becoming more popular with couples and recently being a part of my brother’s destination wedding, I thought the topic was only fitting for my first blog post. I’ll take you through some of the details of the wedding and show some of the different things we did, and maybe those who are planning a destination wedding will find some inspiration.

Choosing Your Wedding Theme

Often the very beginning of the wedding planning can be the hardest part. If you don’t have any direction and don’t know where to start, how can you possibly determine where to go next??

Once the budget is out of the way (as that should really be decided as soon as possible), you need to decide something, anything! Even the tiniest hint of an idea can start you off on your wedding planning journey.
