A Customized Approach to Wedding Planning

Pre Wedding Planning
Planning Your Destination Wedding

No two couples or weddings are exactly alike, to make your big day special one needs to tease out the finer details. I will take the time to get to know you as a couple to discover your unique personalities, get a sense for those special moments, and travel desires. I then craft a one-of-a-kind experience for you as a couple embarking on life’s journey together beginning with a dream destination wedding. You can rely on my expertise to manage extraordinary experiences for not only for you as a couple, but ensuring your friends & family feel confident and secure in making the trip to celebrate with you.

Whether you are planning an intimate wedding for two under a sunset beach or a full-on blast for two hundred at a top shelf Caribbean resort, the tropics are the go-to destination for couples seeking an alternative to the usual wedding. What could be more romantic than a sunset wedding with your friends and family in the exotic destination of your dreams! Discovery Destination Travel Planning has vast array of expert wedding coordinator contacts at fabulous resorts throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. I don’t work with every hotel, only resorts that ensure your wedding will deliver the memories  you’ve always imagined. Still not convinced? Let me help you decide…

Won’t it be difficult to plan from thousands of miles away? The truth is, destination weddings are far easier to plan than traditional weddings. The resorts and cruise lines have dedicated staff on hand to take care of smallest detail. No last minute glitches or headaches. We work directly with the resort or cruise line of your choice to ensure your wedding is perfect.

Aren’t destination weddings expensive? Contrary to popular belief , destination weddings tend to be less expensive and very budget friendly. You are likely to have fewer guests. Most resorts offer wedding packages that making planning simple and cost effective for you and your guests. My goal is to work with you, the bridal couple, to customize your travel plans, as well as your guests to make it the most affordable for everyone. From intimate 30 cottage inns by the sea, to mega resorts offering all the bells and whistles, there are options for every budget.

Here’s how to get started…

  • Contact me by phone at (440) 506-6947  Or click the Get Started button at the bottom of the page.
  • Destination weddings are complex, and as such require a fee to begin the process.  Discovery Destination Travel Planning charges a non-refundable fee of $200 for all destination weddings. It is payable by credit card, via the online link. Once the fee is paid, we can move forward with the planning process.
  • The first step is to submit your destination wedding questionnaire. Based on the information you provide in the questionnaire, Discovery Destination Travel will send you a couple of resort options that fit your needs, based on budget, wedding packages, and resort amenities.
  • I will then guide you through the entire planning process and make sure your chosen venue is the perfect fit.
