You dreamt your whole life of that special day where everything is absolutely perfect. But the thought of a traditional wedding and the family stress that comes along with it just makes you want to head to the nearest courthouse. Destination weddings and honeymoons are a growing trend since today’s couples want more without the stress. They want adventure. And they want to share it with their closest family and friends.
Beach side or sea side? The location is your choice. I will help plan the most idyllic destination wedding whether it is on a cruise to the Mediterranean or at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. Destination weddings can involve just the couple; the couple and their closest friends and family; or the couple plus a group large enough to become a week long family affair.
So, why marry at sea ?
It’s Virtually Stress-Free
I offer personalized service. Tell me your hopes and dreams. With so many cruise lines and beautiful resorts around the world, my goal is to simplify the process for you so that you can enjoy your special day. Many cruise lines and resorts offer full-service wedding and renewal of vow programs. Each package is designed with plenty of alternatives to fit your needs and budget, including an on-site Personal Wedding Planner.
Onboard weddings are Cost Effective
Destination weddings allow you to combine your ceremony and reception with a honeymoon while offering your family and friends a vacation as well. Some cruise lines and resorts offer free wedding packages based on your stay. Imagine this: exotic destinations, gourmet meals, entertainment, beautiful accommodations, spa services and more. With the average cost of a traditional wedding exceeding $25,000 (and higher in the major metropolitan areas), combining a wedding and honeymoon with all costs included can be very attractive.
It’s a Once-in-a-Lifetime Celebration
Family and friends are scattered throughout the world. Getting them together is sometimes challenging. But throwing in a vacation with a special event and you’ll have a group filled with your closest family and friends. There’s no need to run to one place and another. It’s all there, ready for you. Relax, you’re on vacation-wedding time. Playtime with your sweetie and far-flung friends is right outside your “Honeymoon Suite” door.
“I Do” take Two: Simply Perfect
Been-there-done-that couples who want to marry again choose destination weddings because they are simple and private. Gone are the bright lights and big city affairs. Here your witnesses are the beautiful stars shining over the Caribbean Sea. From renewing your vows or rekindling the magic to gathering your new “Brandy Brunch”, a kid-friendly all-inclusive resort or cruise is the perfect choice. There’s something for everyone.
