Planning Your Destination Wedding:
Whether you are planning an intimate wedding for two under a palm tree or a blow out for two hundred in a coconut grove, the tropics is becoming de rigueur for couples seeking an alternative to the usual wedding. Think about it…a barefoot wedding with your friends and family in an exotic locale. What could be sexier! The Tropical Travelers works with our bridal couples to plan the destination wedding of their dreams. Don’t know how to get started or what is entailed, read on…
Today’s couples have friends and family located all around the country. So having enough time to spend with them during the wedding can prove difficult. Instead of just one evening together, a destination wedding can provide you with several days of fun in the sun with your dearest friends and family.
If you are concerned about planning from thousands of miles away, don’t be. The Tropical Travelers has planned many tropical weddings and the truth is, they are far easier to plan than traditional weddings. Hotels in the tropics have staff on hand to take care of every detail. There won’t be any last minute scrambling or headaches. The Tropical Travelers works directly with the hotel of your choice to ensure your wedding is perfect.
If you are concerned about budget, a destination wedding may very well be the way to go. Many times you are likely to have fewer guests, guests that really want to experience this special day with you. So costs tend to be less expensive than traditional weddings and receptions. Many resorts offer wedding packages making planning very simple and cost effective for you and your guests. The Tropical Travelers works with our bridal couples to customize their travel plans, as well as their guests to make it most affordable for everyone.
As far as budget goes, there are a multitude of options available for destination weddings. From intimate 30 cottage inns, to mega resorts offering all the bells and whistles. [quote-float]The Tropical Travelers has 17 years of experience in planning destination weddings. And we look forward to assisting with your special occasion! Many of our bridal couples take into account their guests budgets when planning a destination wedding. They want to offer affordable options to everyone, but still have the wedding of their dreams.
It’s important to give your guests as much advance notice about your wedding as possible. That means sending out save-the-date cards as early as possible so your guests can make the necessary travel and vacation arrangements. The Tropical Travelers recommends planning a year in advance. Once the bridal couple has booked their wedding date and travel arrangements, we recommend their guests contact us to start their own travel reservations. Many couples direct their invitees to a wedding website, where they post their wedding details and travel agency contact information.
In order to begin the destination wedding process, The Tropical Travelers has implemented a $300 non-refundable fee. This is payable via Paypal. Once the payment has been received, we will begin assisting with locating your ceremony site, facilitating wedding contracts with the hotel, reserving travel for guests, acting as liaison with wedding coordinator in resort.
