Looking for an exotic location for your wedding? How about combining your wedding with your honeymoon? Destination weddings can be a fantastic cost-effective option, especially if you’re planning to keep it small. Many South Pacific island resorts have beautiful custom-made chapels and wedding packages which even include your own wedding planner. You can have as much or as little input as you want – right down to just turning up on the day with your dress and your spouse-to-be!
A milestone birthday, anniversary or even your bachelorette can be a great excuse to get your besties away for an extended party. Do a wine weekend on Waiheke, a luxurious spa getaway in the islands or kick up your heels in party-capital, Las Vegas. If you’re looking for a family appropriate celebration, go for an all-inclusive resort or cruise instead.
How does it work?
It’s easy! Instead of gifts, you give your special event guests the option to donate to your travel fund. They can opt to “gift” you a specific aspect of your trip (for example a helicopter ride over the grand canyon) or a set amount of cash to go towards your trip. It’s an especially good option if you have friends and family overseas who can’t make it to your event.
What you get
Once you’ve set up the registry, I’ll give you all the details you need to put on a special card you’ll send out to your guests. You can choose the wording you like and customise it to match your invitations, or use one of my standard designs. The guests contact me directly regarding their gift and I supply them with a printable voucher to pass on to you on the day.
If you need to book & pay for your trip before your event, it’s no problem. You can either use the registry funds to pay for extras, or I can refund it back to your bank account or credit card. You could even use it to buy your foreign currency!
