Destination Weddings Are Becoming More and More Popular.
Imagine a beautiful evening on the beach watching the palm trees sway as you take in the beauty of the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean ocean. As you walk barefoot through the white sand beach, you turn around to look at all of your family and friends gathered in paradise to celebrate your wedding day! You have been spending quality time with friends and family enjoying the beauty that surrounds you; swimming, snorkeling, a sunset catamaran and horseback riding on the beach. You have had breakfast in bed and elegant beachfront dinners leading up to this moment. You have enjoyed a relaxing massage and sipped on your favorite tropical drink… all before noon. It’s no wonder destination weddings are becoming so popular.
Planning a Destination Wedding
The secret to planning a dream destination wedding is the skilled combination of selecting the ideal location, picking the perfect resort that can accommodate your plans and all the guests you expect to attend, and coordinating that with the detailed travel plans for each person. Your family and guests will be traveling from a variety of different cities and airports across the U.S. The last thing you want to do is get bogged down in the endless travel details for every person traveling. That’s what my job is all about. I handle all the details of travel and resort accommodations for you and your guests. You get to focus on enjoying the time leading up to your special day. When family or friends ask about the details of rooms and travel, all you need to say is – Contact Vicki, she will take good care of you.
Benefits of a Destination Wedding
A destination wedding is a stress-free, affordable way to begin your lives together. It’s every girl’s dream to have a wedding made in heaven. Mixing the serenity of marriage with the beauty of a tropical destination helps make that dream come true. You will create cherished memories with family and friends that will last a lifetime. Your guests combine their celebration of your wedding with a beautiful vacation getaway in paradise. It unites a unique wedding celebration with an unforgettable reunion of family and friends away from the hustle and bustle back home. And you save thousands of dollars compared to the average wedding in the U.S.
Stress Free Travel Planning
The next component of creating a successful destination wedding is planning a stress-free, safe travel experience for you and your guests. Traveling from many different locations in the U.S. to another country creates a logistical challenge. Passports and related documents for all your guests need to be taken care of well in advance of the trip. Flight dates and times as well as airport transfers must be coordinated with each guest based on their desire to spend additional time at the resort before or after the wedding. My job is to handle all these details so you do not get dragged into every guests’ travel needs. I help ensure that your guests have a pleasant, memorable travel experience.
Selecting the Ideal Destination and Resort
The first big decision we work on together is selecting the ideal destination and resort. There are many factors to consider including cost, weather, season, type of resort, resort availability, travel time required, just to name a few. This is one of the most important decisions you will make. Some resorts understand the unique needs of a destination wedding. They pay close attention to detail and treat you like royalty. They have experienced wedding coordinators onsite who work closely with you to tailor your wedding to match your tastes and preferences. Other resorts don’t… they just wing it. Over 10 years of experience has provided me with first-hand knowledge of the destinations and resorts (and the management at those resorts) to help you to make this all-important decision with confidence and peace of mind.
