Nov 25, 2022

It’s a familiar story. A couple gets engaged and becomes really excited about a destination wedding. Until they start thinking about questions. Questions about location, flights, rooms, transfers. Planning a destination wedding by yourself can be formidable and can often become overwhelming.

Does this sound like you? If so, the most important question you should be asking as a newly engaged couple is, “Should I hire a travel advisor to help me with this?” The answer is unequivocally yes!


Travel Advisor Destination Wedding

How does a travel advisor help with destination wedding?

We as Travel Advisors can help you determine the best resort for your wedding based on first-hand experience. We’ll guide you to which resorts offer perks and which ones have the best prices. Our Advisors have relationships with resort coordinators and can quickly get you the answers to your questions.

Best of all, we handle all of the travel arrangements for you and your guests. Can you imagine trying to book Aunt Becky’s transfers and room at the same time you are sending out invitations and scheduling bridal fittings?

Once your party has arrived at the destination, we will still be providing support. When cousin Eddy doesn’t like his room, he can call us to have it all worked out. Instead of asking you, the happy couple, to fix it. Having a travel advisor in your back pocket will give you an added layer of insulation between all the things that could go wrong with travel. That way it doesn’t take away from the real reason why you are there – your wedding.


How will I know what documents are required to travel?

If you choose an international location, this may be the first time some of your guests have ever been out of the country. They are sure to have plenty of questions about passports and documentation. Or other concerns like traveling post Covid, and what happens if they need to cancel their trip. Instead of calling you to have their questions answered, we can provide expert answers to ensure they are ready to travel. Your advisor can also help answer simpler questions about the dress code for the resort or if the menu has gluten-free options.

On occasion, we may be able to provide on-site support. In this case, the travel advisor would travel with you and be available to assist the group for the entire time they are at the destination.
