The moment you become engaged, the decision making process begins. As you go through those decisions, you need to find the right companies and vendors to help you pull off your destination wedding without a hitch.
We are personable and honest. Make sure the company you choose has your needs placed first. They should be able to help plan every part of your destination wedding travel. We advise, “You should see a variety of destinations, hotels and activities at a price you both will love. You should not be worried about money, but rather spending time with those who matter to you most. We offer all of that along with one central website so your guests can view trip details, all your wedding information and so much more.”
Don’t go it alone.Planning a destination wedding can be tricky and there are no guarantees. When you book on your own through a “dotcom” like Orbitz or Expedia, you run the risk of being moved to another hotel if the property gets oversold or being placed on endless hold if you have a problem with your travel plans or an emergency. “With Destination Weddings by Beach Travel, resorts will never do this because of our ongoing working relationship with them. By working with us, you simply call one of our nationwide numbers and speak to a live person,” says David. And in case you have a disruption during your travel, Destination Weddings by Beach Travel (through our preferred vendors) offers a 24-hour-a-day hotline for you to call.
By going it alone, a couple may be forced to spend hours searching the web, negotiate directly with hotels or be overcharged by third-party vendors who aren’t familiar with the needs of a traveling wedding couple. “Our certified travel consultants visit the destinations, know the vendors and inspect the hotels and ceremony locations in order to provide professional advice and current information to the bride and groom. We guarantee the best value, customer service and most important – we don’t charge any fees for our work, we just require travel arrangements be made through our company.
Make sure you’re getting the best price. Sometimes shopping based on price can be deceiving. Make sure to look for hidden fees or the small print in contracts. “We work with preferred vendors who give us special pricing which we then pass on to you and your guests. When it comes to cost, you will receive the best prices available at the time of booking if you work with us,”
And as far as ease of payment, , “We offer an easy payment plan which makes it ideal for guest to budget instead of having to pay their trip in full at the time of booking.”
Know the difference between a wedding planner and a destination wedding specialist. “Wedding planners plan weddings. They are hired by engaged couples and/or their families to help coordinate the big event. They are party planners who have expertise in planning weddings. What our company does as destination wedding specialists is help you decide on where, when and what location to have your dream destination wedding. We provide information for any of our destinations, wedding package inclusions and prices, wedding requirements for civil weddings and reserve dates at any hotel or location. We also help coordinate all the details of the wedding ceremony and reception, provide a personalized web page with information about your wedding, planned events and travel information. If that wasn’t enough, we also obtain the lowest price for travel arrangements (including ground transportation) for you and your guests, support negotiating reception prices with hotels or any of our preferred vendors. We can even help you plan your honeymoon!”
“We have been creating memorable and personalized experiences since 2001. We understand what it takes to pull off a stress-free wedding in a dream location. If you work with us, or someone else, just make sure you select a travel specialist who understands the unique needs of a couple planning a destination wedding.
Congratulations on your engagement and good luck in your planning!
