I am so excited that you are considering a Destination Wedding! There are many benefits of saying "I Do" thousands of miles away from home, and choosing the right travel planner is key to an organized and memorable trip. With all the upcoming decisions you will need to make as the bride and groom, I want to help make "when", "where", and "how" the easiest decisions yet!

Why choose The Vagablonde? Why choose Paradise Weddings and Travel? We specialize in Destination Weddings and Luxury Romance Travel. As a company, we have "married" hundreds of couples throughout the United States, Mexico, and other Caribbean locations. We actually consider ourselves more of a wedding coordinator + travel agent in the fact that we become as involved as the couples would like us to be! 

Over the years, we have built wonderful relationships with trusted vendors, resorts, and their onsite wedding coordinators. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to give our brides and grooms their dream wedding with upmost attentiveness and care. With organization, hard work, and open lines of communication...I will make sure you, your family, and your friends are confident traveling to your wedding!

It is very important to me that I get a chance to connect with the bride and groom. Whether it is a short phone call or scheduled meeting, I want to make sure I can take their vision for the big day and research options that are the right fit! Do you want to get married at sunset in a Gazebo covered in floral decor right off the ocean? Or maybe have your reception on a Sky Deck with a live band overlooking the entire resort and miles of white sand and blue water? Whatever my bride and groom are thinking...I want to hear it!

LETS CONNECT

It is very important to me that I get a chance to connect with the bride and groom. Whether it is a short phone call or scheduled meeting, I want to make sure I can take their vision for the big day and research options that are the right fit! Do you want to get married at sunset in a Gazebo covered in floral decor right off the ocean? Or maybe have your reception on a Sky Deck with a live band overlooking the entire resort and miles of white sand and blue water? Whatever my bride and groom are thinking...I want to hear it! 

CEREMONY DATE & LOCATION

Once I connect with the bride and groom, I will recommend a list of resorts that are personalized to their style, budget, and desired locations. After a resort is chosen, I will correspond with the resort's onsite wedding coordinators to arrange your wedding date, ceremony time, and perfect ceremony/reception locations. As your "Wedding Travel Planner", I will act as a liaison between you and the resort for the entire process.

GROUP COORDINATION

If the wedding group size is applicable, I will contact our groups wholesaler that we have worked closely with for many years to get the best rates available for your guests. With a group contract, we will secure a block of rooms, including amenities for the bride and groom that are offered through the hotel.

The group contract allows your guests to pay a minimum deposit to hold their room choice and will guarantee their room reservation to attend your wedding! The final payment varies and will be discussed at the initial introduction of the contract.

WEDDING WEBSITE

After we have established the pricing, I will put together the couple's own PERSONAL WEDDING WEBSITE. This website will allow your guests to book their room and transportation with ease and will provide all the details necessary to set up their travel.

TRAVEL COORDINATION

Our communication and organization throughout the entire process is what makes for a stress-free and enjoyable destination wedding... so I make sure to have a password protected, "live-time" RSVP spreadsheet available to my wedding couples and whomever they would like to share it with. This spreadsheet will also be shared with the onsite wedding coordinator, so she can help the bride and groom build the wedding package to accommodate the guests who RSVP.
