Destination Weddings

For those of you who don't know, I got started in this industry doing destination weddings. Whether in Key West, New Orleans or the Caribbean, I was the go-to gal for these hot spots. I thought I would share some tips on what you need before jetting off to your nearest beach (and when you do, could I please tag along?)

First thing to check:

Language. Yes, it may be obvious to some, but before deciding you want your wedding to be in Paris or Cancun, weigh in the factor that there will be a language barrier and this may cause a challenge to you and/or your guests. I unfortunately am not bilingual by any stretch of the imagination, and most US based destination planners are not either. BUT - we have our resources in our destinations of choice that we communicate with and help translate. I strongly recommend you finding a planner experienced in your destination of choice.

Marriage Requirements. What the heck do you need to get married in Jamaica? Bora Bora? There are several resources available to get you on the right path.
Here and here to name a few.

Now there are a ton of other things that you need to know. I didn't want to bore you with more text and no pictures.

So, drop me an email { } if you have any questions - I'm happy to help or contact the local tourism board. Happy Summer!!

P.S. I promise I'll post some pictures of recent weddings soon!
