Find a travel agent who specializes in a niche that matches your vision. For example, we specialize in all-inclusive destination weddings. All-inclusive resorts are found in many countries, including Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St Lucia, Costa Rica, Turks and Caicos, all over the Bahamas and the Caribbean! There are all-inclusives to be found in Spain, Maldives, and other exotic locations.

With our experience, we work with you to find the perfect location based on your requirements and budget.

By picking an experienced travel agency, with their proven vendor and brand relationships, you gain:

  • Exclusive savings
  • A large variety of wedding package options
  • Greater budget considerations
  • Access to local experienced wedding vendors
  • Additional customization options
  • Greater destination options
  • And so much more!

Mostly, guests will be responsible for booking and paying their own way for things like airfare, hotel / resort rooms and any other additional expenses, like excursions, or other add-ons. This is a great benefit to using an all-inclusive location, the food and drinks are included in the price of the resort stay.

As expected, the bride and groom are on the hook for certain items related to the destination wedding itself. They are expected to pay for things like the wedding reception, the rehearsal dinner, the welcome party and the morning-after brunch. In some cases, the parents of the bride or groom might offer to pay for some of this, but that depends on your particular family.

When you have made a decision, there is a destination wedding group contract you will sign with our agency. Specific information about the chosen vendor is also included on the contract - based on destination, resort, etc. The contract confirms the destination wedding group travel arrangements on the terms and conditions provided. Please note, no reservations are confirmed, or rates guaranteed, until the initial deposit is paid and the destination wedding group sales contract is signed by the travel agent and received back by the chosen vendor. Typically, the group must maintain a minimum of 10 rooms to qualify for discounted rates and concessions outlined in the contract.

Payment schedule will be outlined in the contract, including signature due date and amount, 2nd / 3rd deposit due dates and amounts, and final payment due date / remaining group balances.

The contract will also show the total rooms, total guests, and total room nights. In addition, the hotel, room categories reserved, occupancy numbers, date of arrival and departure, and the # of nights of each are also included.

Any travel protection / insurance is included in the contract and any qualifying group hotel amenities inclusions. This may include complimentary transfers to/from airport to the resort, welcome cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremony inclusions, coupons, resort credits, and any other terms and conditions outlined.

An all-inclusive resort, typically includes at a minimum, a resort level room, three meals daily (most include buffet and snack options through the day), soft drinks, most alcoholic drinks, gratuities / tips, and possibly other services in the price such as free live entertainment. Many also offer sports, and non-motorized watersports and other beach activities that are included in the price as well. An all-inclusive destination wedding, usually takes place at an all-inclusive resort, which are typically beach-side resorts, in the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico, and other countries outside the US.

At the lowest level, a destination wedding can be included in the normal price of a 3-day stay at an all-inclusive resort. In a location close to the US, such as Cancun, Mexico, this could be as cheap as $3,000. At the medium end, a destination wedding, with a few additions can be $7,000. While a high-end destination wedding can cost 6-figures. It all depends on location, resort brand / level, add-ons, extra services, decorations, music, entertainment required, photography, hosting a large number of guests, etc.

Destination weddings are different than in-state / domestic weddings. The recommendation is, do not wait longer than six months before the destination wedding date you have contracted with your travel agent. For destination weddings, couples send them as early as nine months ahead! It's important to plan effectively in advance for your big day.
