Living up to the hype as a world class beach destination, Boracay recently bagged the top spot in the prestigious Top 10 Island Destination in 2012 by Travel + Leisure, besting other popular get-away destinations like Bali, Galapagos, Santorini, Sicily, and the best Hawaii has to offer. No wonder many couples around the world choose a Boracay wedding venue.
But is it possible that such an award-winning, heaven-on-earth kind of a destination have its own weak spot that can turn a dream wedding into a terrible disaster? Here are some disasters in a Boracay wedding venue that couples should avoid.
When it rains, it pours. Make sure your wedding date does not fall on a rainy season. And if a storm is brewing on a summer weekend, pray! There is nothing more disastrous than a windy storm or that unpredictable monsoon rain bashing at your beach wedding.
Choosing the wrong venue. Boracay is known for award-winning hotels and the best in everything that the hospitality business has to offer. But not all hotels in Boracay can live up to that. A wrong venue can give you a beachfront overpopulated with uninvited guests and studded with rocks, fallen tree branches, and occasional trash, instead of its pristine, powdery, white sand beaches.
Incompetent suppliers. Success is in the details. Everything has to be perfect, from your hair and make-up to the floral arrangement and all the other small details that make up a perfect wedding. Make sure your suppliers are easy to deal with and have the experience to carry out what you want.
Wrong attire for the perfect venue. It is surprising how some people manage to dress to impress but still look awkward. Stilettos on a beach? Inform your guests where exactly your wedding will be held and what dress is appropriate.
Missing wedding supplies. With all the preparations and excitement, someone could forget important items needed for the wedding. Make sure you don’t get anything left behind before you leave for Boracay, and make sure it’s not the wedding ring.
Make sure you prepare and have everything covered. When everything is done, sit back, relax, and enjoy your wedding. Best wishes!
