If 2018 is the year you’re tying the knot, and your dream nuptials include a destination wedding followed by an international honeymoon, planning may be easier than you first realize. Travel professionals are ready and waiting to help everything go smoothly.
The agents at Travel Leaders Group have developed working relationships with suppliers in destination wedding and honeymoon locations around the world. They’ve got the inside knowledge of various resort brands, as well as the personal experience that comes with having stayed at many of them. They’ll put their expertise to work helping to select the best transportation, destination and accommodations for the needs of you and your guests.
Here are some things to think about before you meet with your destination wedding and honeymoon travel professional.
First, figure out the size of your guest list. Even an estimate will help your agent provide you with the best recommendations. To make travel easier, as well as save time and money, your agent can assist with booking group air, hotel and ground transportation. In selecting the perfect venue, let your agent know whether this will be a multi-generational affair, including children, or an adults-only wedding. While every guest at your wedding is important, there may be some close friends or family members to whom you want to give extra attention. Your agent can help with upgrades and amenities. Finally, be up front if your guests have varying budgets, so that your agent can help ensure that they’re able to travel in an affordable manner.
When it comes to your honeymoon, factors to consider include, of course, your budget, the type of activities and entertainment you enjoy as a couple and your appetite for adventure. For example, is your dream to spend time relaxing at a luxury resort or would you rather spend your days sightseeing? Do you enjoy nightlife or would you rather spend a quiet evening away from all the hustle and bustle.
Another resource that supplements assistance from your travel agent is the new website Vacation (www.vacation.com). Powered by Travel Leaders Group, Vacation offers ideas and expertise from professionals who assist more than 50,000 travelers a year.
The section on weddings and honeymoons includes articles on topics such as all-inclusive versus pay-as-you-go accommodations, the hottest honeymoon travel trends and a quiz to help discover your honeymoon style. Also on the site is an interactive guide to destination weddings, designed with the input of Travel Leaders agents who have planned and attended hundreds of such events. It’s a fun, interactive way to get answers to some of the most common questions, including the average cost, who pays for what, the average number of guests likely to attend, how soon you should send out save-the-date cards, whether you should expect gifts and guidelines for creating your wedding website.
