So, Where is the best place for your destination wedding? 

Choosing the perfect resort to host your wedding group is a big decision, but fear not! I've got your back. Let's dive into ten things you should look for that will make a resort perfect for your special day!

1. Comprehensive Wedding Packages: Resorts that offer wedding packages that bundle your vendor services make life much easier. A comprehensive wedding package

should have everything you need for your dream wedding in one neat package! From venues to flowers to photography, comprehensive packages make planning a breeze.

2. Diverse and Stunning Ceremony Locations:

Choosing a resort with various ceremony locations that offer different views will allow you to spice up your wedding with breathtaking venue choices! Whether you fancy a beachfront ceremony, a rooftop wedding looking over the ocean, or an intimate garden celebration, having options lets you create the wedding of your dreams.

3. Dedicated Wedding Team: Resorts with a dedicated onsite wedding team are the best way to say goodbye to stress! A dedicated wedding team means that certain employees only work on weddings. They'll be by your side to handle any remaining details and wedding logistics so you can focus on what truly matters – enjoying your big day!  

4. Group-Friendly Accommodations: When choosing a destination wedding resort, you want to ensure that the resort offers something for everyone, from cozy suites to family-friendly rooms. If children will be at your destination wedding, it’s ideal if the resort you choose has a kids club or at least daily activities for the kids. Pro tip: find a resort with guaranteed bedding and two queen beds for friends sharing a room. 

5. Inclusive Amenities and Activities:

Find a resort that can keep the fun going for your group with inclusive amenities and activities! Spa services, group excursions, and themed events will make your wedding celebration unforgettable.

6. Accessibility and Logistics It’s ideal to choose a resort where you and your guests travel no longer than 30-45 minutes after landing. You want them to get to the resort as quickly as possible to give them maximum time to relax and enjoy their time at your wedcation. This will help make travel a breeze for your guests! Easy access to airports, and straightforward logistics will ensure everyone arrives with a smile.

7. Reputation and Reviews: Do your homework and read those reviews! Positive testimonials are a surefire way to know you're in good hands. With that said, it’s impossible to make everyone happy, so keep that in the back of your mind when you are looking at the reviews. 

8. Customization Options One of the critical factors that can set one resort apart from others you may be considering is the ability to customize your wedding package. You must still make your destination wedding uniquely yours with customizable options. Let your style and personality shine through in every detail, whether a particular theme or a personalized menu.

9. Weather Considerations:

Don't let Mother Nature rain on your parade! A good backup plan and indoor options will ensure your day goes off without a hitch. The resort you choose should have quality backup contingencies for bad weather that will still give you the beauty and elegance you hope for in your destination wedding.  

10. Offer Great Value This doesn’t mean the lowest price!  You are looking for resorts that offer many great options and quality for the money.  Your wedding is an investment, but you still want to have great value and quality for your wedding!  Let's make your dream wedding affordable! Look for resorts that offer value for money without skimping on quality.

Bonus tip: Work with a resort that doesn’t schedule a lot of weddings daily.  As a destination wedding travel agent, I always prefer to book my clients at resorts that only do one destination wedding a day.  Having your wedding be the only wedding on the schedule that day ensures that the entire resort wedding staff will be focused on your destination wedding! 

1. As you embark on the journey to your dream destination wedding, remember that every detail matters. Selecting the best resort for curating unforgettable experiences for you and your guests is one of the most important decisions you can make. I'm here to guide you every step of the way.
