Destination weddings and other personal events provide specific creative challenges and payoffs for producers, planners, and designers. The event teams take inspiration from local culture for decor, food, entertainment, and activities, and build out intricate structures and decor elements, frequently in places where there is no existing infrastructure. These weddings and private parties in destinations including Bali, Maui, Palm Springs, Jackson Hole, Portugal, and other locations around the world offer plenty inspiration for corporate and social events of all kinds.
