Destination & Resort Research
So to kick things off in the destination wedding planning process, the first step is destination and resort research. I will use the information that we discussed in our initial consultation to curate the best options for your wedding. We will review the options and narrow down to the perfect option for you.
Resort Selection & Securing Your Wedding Date

Once a resort is chosen, I will work with my preferred travel partners to secure your wedding date & resort room block contract. There are many dynamics to this process.

 

  • Availability of dates at resort

  • Room availability for your & your guests

 

These steps may seem a little daunting, but no worries -- this is completely normal

Once desired ceremony dates & room availability with the selected resort is obtained, we will secure your wedding event with a deposit.

 

At the same time, we will sign & submit deposit for your resort room block contract. Once that is completed, we are ready for the fun part-- the wedding details & booking your guests!!
