Whoa whoa whoa! Before we go any further you have to let us know: how far do you want to go? Where are we going? Okay, okay the wedding is the goal and can be the general location, but WHERE exactly are we going? What is the setting for the wedding of your dreams? Where is the location that Rosemint can primp and polish and lord over guests if they are unruly while your maid of honor fans you as you sip champagne. (That image looks heavenly doesn’t it, we know add it to the to-do list, you’re welcome).
Location is the backdrop of the wedding and it leaves an impression on everyone in attendance. Despite slump-ish global economies, destination weddings continue to rise in popularity and frequency. There’s nothing like declaring your love and devotion on a sandy tropical locale or landmark. While expenses may tally up quickly with travel, lodging and planning abroad, it also allows you to cut costs as far as attendees and reception options. Yes, blushing bride to be we see the gears rolling, so to further entice you Rosemint Wedding GPS has conjured up a dream list of international hot spots trending now.
Before we start allow us to shamelessly plug Chicago as a possible destination. Between our world renowned landmarks from Union Station to Buckingham Fountain to our first class cuisine to our intimate hotel boutiques we have much to offer. There’s also Raych & Char; yes, Chicago serves as our base of operations and our event planning stomping grounds originated here. That being said, if you’re in Chicago look up Rosemint Inc. hint hint, we’ll even prep you for our weather (it’s absolutely crazy guys, beautiful and the best clearly, but crazy nonetheless).
