It has been an honor and a privilege to have helped several couples plan their dream weddings at their favorite exotic location away from home. From Jamaica to Tahiti, I’ve often sat while planning a couple’s “weddingmoon” package and day dreamed of the day when I would be the lucky bride planning their big day somewhere fascinating and breathtaking.
Planning a destination wedding can be quite daunting, especially since you most likely will not be able to personally meet your vendors prior to the big day. You’ll just get to see examples of their work provided to you by your assigned wedding coordinator. In fact, you may never step foot onto the property that you chose to host your big day prior to your wedding! So, it’s extremely important that you have an experienced travel agent, especially one that is extremely familiar with your chosen destination, to help guide you and your guests through the process of planning and booking the travel segments for your dream destination wedding.
But, what if it’s the travel agent that is getting married? I have recently found myself the lucky recipient of a gorgeous diamond ring and the best fiance a girl could ever ask for. Upon the surprise proposal, we immediately decided that our special day would be spent somewhere different- somewhere that had nothing to do with where we grew up, have previously lived, or where we currently reside. So, I now face the prospect of planning my own destination wedding and wanted to share with everyone my own personal experience of going through the various planning stages!
I am going to try and blog in real time as I plan my wedding. Check back every so often as I continue on my journey to plan an amazing destination wedding!!
