On the search for a travel agent for your destination wedding? Here's some tips for picking the right one!
Consider The Candidate's Background
This is the first thing you should ask a potential destination wedding specialist. As a bride and groom, it’ll put your mind at ease knowing your go-to person has years of experience in the field. Remember, just about anyone can plan a trip. You need someone who can plan an entire destination wedding experience and understands all the moving parts that go with it.
Everyone always likes a recommendation, so be sure you ask the wedding planner you’re talking to if they’ve been to the resorts you have your eye on. That way, they can provide additional insight on things like service, food, entertainment, wedding décor, key staff, and more.
The thought of transporting 50+ people from point A to point B can sound very daunting, but to a highly trained travel expert, it’s just another day. Be sure to ask them for examples of how they’ve managed group bookings, transfers, group excursions, etc.
And Understand The Logistics!
Because every wedding has a budget! Be sure to ask your potential wedding specialist how much it is to utilize their services. You may be shocked at the wide array of agency fees out there! Free isn't always good here. Look for a balance of reasonable fees and good value. The right wedding expert is worth their weight in gold!
It’s always great to know if your destination wedding specialist has an assistant or second point of contact in case they’ve fallen ill, are traveling, etc. That way you can rest easy knowing your questions and concerns will be responded to in a timely manner! After all, planning a wedding takes a village!
Once you’ve gotten a good feeling about your potential wedding planner, the last thing you’ll want to know are next steps. The right candidate will have a straight forward game plan for you ahead so no guessing games along the way!
