In my experience, I often state that 90% of our clients are hosting destination weddings when in fact – if we really look at it – I don’t think we’ve ever seen a wedding that didn’t have a significant percentage of wedding guests traveling some distance.
Our criteria is short – these two questions:
1. Is a hotel block needed?
2. Are food / activity / transportation suggestions or coordination required?
Within that, it’s pretty obvious that 100% of our weddings necessitate this, no matter how large or how local either side of the wedding may live. Inevitably, no matter where in the wedding planning process you are – our clients get the inevitable “do you have any ideas on where we should stay” and “how far is X town/hotel from the venue?” and so on and so on. Rinse, repeat.
