Congratulations! It’s happened - the proposal has been made and accepted and now comes the fun bit!
You have been dreaming about a sunset Destination Wedding ever since you met the absolute love of your life in that bar you eventually got around to trying….or that movie you had been meaning to see….or even by swiping right on tinder (no judgement) and you fell hopelessly in love.
You have a vision of what you would like your wedding to look like and it involves being far, far away from where you are now, picture perfect in an exotic location. So now what?
Deciding to have an overseas wedding has its pros and cons, but beautiful destination weddings don’t just happen! They are usually easier and often cheaper than some large scale affair closer to home, but successful destination weddings take work!
Though they can be less stressful than traditional local weddings, many of the details will be out of your control. Often a good planner or agent will know a lot of the answers anyway and be on your time scale!
Destination weddings also make a lot of sense if your loved ones are scattered around the country (or even the globe). After all, if most of the guests are going to travel anyway, why not get married and give everyone a holiday at the same time?
The realisation of the time it will take you to plan your dream Destination Wedding sinks in….You start to feel the sand slipping away through the hourglass, you can no longer taste the banana-berry-licious cocktail or feel the sun on your skin. In a panic you jump onto the internet to find that Wedding Destination company you heard rave reviews about from a friend of a friend and you realise they are exactly what you need
It is a holistic approach, which means that we can assist with every aspect, from the travel side, flights, transfers, accommodation, tours etc, through to the wedding itself, florist’s photographers, hair and make-up , styling & set up, and of course honeymoon coordination. Plus we are 100% guest friendly, so we can also arrange all their travel, negotiate group deals and make sure they ALL have a great time!
Whilst doing this can make some people crazy, others will glide serenely down the aisle without a worry in the world. Why? Because they trusted someone else who knows what they are doing to handle it for them. Using a specialist travel agent who can handle all aspects of the trip is an instant stress release. Doing it yourself via the internet may save you a few dollars here and there but calculate that cost versus the ease of downloading it to someone else. We have a lot of (real life) stories, but for now the lesson to be learnt is – book with an expert who can look after it all for you, so you can get on with getting married and having a party!
