Hey guys! I’m back! And totally enjoying the post-wedding love haze. While I’m waiting for my pro pics, I figured I’d share my experience of booking an international destination wedding. I’m a details person; I like knowing what to expect. When I was first working on planning I was pretty bummed out that there was barely any information out there about the nitty-gritty steps of planning, organizing, and booking a destination wedding. So, here’s my story, to hopefully help some future destination-wedding brides.
Unfortunately, this series of posts is probably not applicable to most of the bees in the hive, so for that I’m sorry! My feelings won’t be hurt of you skip through ‘em.
Cut back to October/November 2013…
After we picked a location, the work began:
Step 1. Find a travel agent. Having a travel agent is totally optional, but I knew I wanted one. I knew that I wanted to book a room block and that I didn’t want to handle the details myself. I looked online, read some reviews, emailed a couple of people, and picked our travel agent. We had to pay a $250 non-refundable deposit (this was applied to our room account) and sign a contract to secure her services.
