What not to do if you’re planning a destination wedding in Mumbai?

Having a destination wedding miles away from home in an exotic location is a dream for a lot of to-be married couples these days. Destination weddings are meant to be delightful and picture perfect, but planning for one can be just as exhausting and requires a lot of attention to detail.

If you’re planning to fly to the city of dreams, Mumbai, to tie the knot with the love of your life, there are a lot of details you’ve to pay attention to but certain things need to be avoided as well such as the heavy rains during Mumbai’s monsoon season. We’ve got you covered with the list of things “not” to do while planning for your destination wedding in Mumbai:

Don’t delay vendor bookings till the last minute

A simple, yet unskippable detail is to explore vendor options for catering, decor, etc. well in advance during wedding planning. But it’s even more important when you’re getting married in a destination as popular as Mumbai. You can avail our help at the WedMeGood website to scout a ton of options for verified vendors to sort out your bookings in advance.

Avoid choosing room stay options for your guests too far from the wedding venue

Mumbai is known to be one of the most crowded and bustling cities in the country. Estimating the amount of back and forth your guests will have to go through during the wedding functions, it’s advisable to book top banquet halls in Mumbai which are available with room stays for them close to your wedding venue. WedMeGood lists reliable and verified options according to your budget to help facilitate room bookings hassle-free.

Avoid picking a date in the peak monsoon season

It’s common knowledge by now that rains and Mumbai don’t get along all that well. Waterlogged roads and traffic jams lasting hours hinder daily lives of Mumbaikars, especially during the months of August and September. So, your wedding experience might not be how you dreamt of, if you choose to get married in Mumbai during the heavy rainy season.

Don’t forget to plan a travel itinerary for your guests

Apart from being a popular wedding destination, Mumbai is also one of the most sought-after tourist cities in India. Make sure that your guests make the most of this wedding trip. You can plan an itinerary in advance covering all the major tourist places for your guests to visit, from the local crowd of Gateway of India to the serene views of Marine Drive.

Don’t send out the wedding invitations too close to the ceremony date

A destination wedding would require a lot of planning not just for you and your family, but for the guests attending the event as well. Assume that they would require a good amount of time to figure out their travel details to Mumbai and back. Ensure that you don’t wait till the last minute to send wedding invitations so that you can even get RSVPs in time to make bookings accordingly.
