A destination wedding is extra special and so is the guest etiquette that comes with it. With the Crystal Ballroom Daytona Beach on your side, you’ll have our gorgeous location and expert staff to help you and your family and friends have a wonderful experience that will live up to your dreams. Here are a few points to keep in mind as you’re planning for your big day:

Give ample notice. Attending a destination wedding is obviously a significant commitment. Your guests will need to make travel arrangements, and many of them will need to check vacation and school schedules for their whole family. If possible, sending out a save-the-date notice a year in advance is advisable. If you’re on a shorter timeline, try to allow at least 3 months.

Provide extra information. In addition to the dates, location, and venue, your guests will need to know any relevant details about group bookings for lodging and flights. Make sure you keep your wedding website updated with any changes. If you or your family are going to cover any of the costs, let your guests know.

Organize additional activities. Some modern weddings are becoming multi-day events, much like they used to be in past centuries, or including some group outings, which can be a thoughtful idea for guests who will be staying for their own vacations. The Daytona Beach area is a great choice because it offers lots to do. In addition to the Daytona International Speedway, there are more than 20 miles of beaches and the Daytona Lagoon water park.
