If you’ve been trying to plan a destination wedding all on your own, you probably know that it can be one massive headache (and I’m guessing that’s why you’re here!). But rather than giving up on your dream of saying “I do” in a tropical paradise, why not hire a travel specialist?
I once was right where you are now, struggling to juggle planning my honeymoon abroad with my wedding back home. Finally, I threw in the towel and hired a travel agent—it was the best decision I could have made! My husband and I enjoyed a dreamy escape to Puerto Vallarta, all thanks to her time and expertise.
Now, as a travel specialist, I empower couples planning their destination weddings by sharing insider knowledge with the power to transform their experiences. Armed with industry connections and the confidence that can only come with time and training, I help them plan and execute the most special day of their lives.
But don’t take my word for it! Here are the top five reasons you should hire a travel specialist for your destination wedding.
Hiring a professional takes the guesswork out of planning a destination wedding! No longer must you spend hours upon hours on Google, scrolling page after page and trying to read between the lines of reviews. I’ve personally traveled to over 100 resorts and destinations throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. I know my clients deserve authenticity, so my endorsements come from firsthand experience!
In other words, hiring a travel specialist means you’ll know in minutes what spending months surfing the Internet might never tell you. We’ll assess your wants and needs and present you with the best venue options for YOU (yep, it can be that easy!). Then, once you’ve finalized your guest count, we’ll use our experience as a guide to determine the most optimal ceremony and reception set-up.
We Have Established Industry Relationships
Over the years, we’ve built relationships with specific resorts that meet the Bridie seal of approval. We know which resorts have the BEST wedding departments to meet your needs—and which ones to avoid.
We can’t overstate the value of these partnerships. In particular, we value our connections with our preferred tour operators for an all-around worry-free experience! The bottom line: we’ll have your best interest in mind all the way through, and we’ll help combat any issues, should they arise.
Without a thorough checklist, you’ll be second-guessing yourself throughout the entire planning process. But with the help of a travel specialist, you can rest assured knowing that this isn’t our first rodeo (not even close). We know what to do and when to do it—not to mention we’ll corral your guests, keep them on top of things, and answer all their questions.
We know your life is crazy busy, so we’ll take care of all the nitty gritty details (and relentless questioning), leaving you to focus on enjoying your engagement!
Travel Arrangements? Not Your Problem
Speaking of your guests, we’ll take care of all their travel arrangements. From setting up a room block to creating a wedding website to streamline the booking process, we’ve got you covered!
Let’s say your guests encounter issues while traveling, and you’re 30,000 feet in the air, phone on airplane mode, unable to help them. Without a travel advisor, there’s no one to handle these bumps in the road that are so common with international travel (especially in a post-pandemic world).
We also deal with family dynamics. Since we aren’t emotionally involved, we can quickly assess a situation and quell any guest disagreements.
We’ll Be Your Go-To Professional/friend/ally
Your travel specialist is in your corner, always! We’ll be there whenever you need advice (or to just vent), and your peace of mind is our priority. We want you to sleep soundly on the night before your wedding, knowing all your ducks are in a row. Plus, we’re always solving problems you never knew you had! Before you’re even aware of them, we take care of those inevitable hiccups in the planning process so that you can enjoy a stress-free experience all the way through.
Ultimately, we save you time and money using our knowledge and resources. Our goal is to make your life and your guests’ lives easier! So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with Bridie Travel today for seamless, detail-oriented planning for your destination wedding.
