Destination weddings are not something new, but as with everything, there are always new trends that appear. What is the best way to serve this type of client? What are the most requested destinations? We consulted Martha P. García of the agency A Treasured Moment by Martha and this was what highlighted us.
"Our company combines event planning with travel agent service, the ideal combination to serve this type of client, first of all, determine a budget, choose the preferred destinations, what kind of activities they want to carry out. Once these points are established, a contract is signed (the couple sign a contract with the agency, the agency, in turn, contracts with the providers that will be used), and the couple is given an informative website (they provide their information) , photos, etc.) to make it easier for all your group to buy in one place and thus receive more benefits.The agency can offer its complete wedding planning services by attending the event with the couple and their group, or coordinate everything and work together with the event coordination staff of the hotel chosen, handling all the logistics of the event, from the logistics and planning of the trip, the wedding as such and the activities is that they include (many of them optional). They also handle legal procedures (visas, passports) and the coordination of the honeymoon. "
The most requested destinations are:
Mexico: Riviera Maya / Cancun
Dominican Republic: Punta Cana
"The new destination in vogue is Colombia, the walled city of Cartagena on the Colombian Atlantic coast and the haciendas in the city of Medellín and its surroundings are becoming increasingly popular destinations among couples who choose this type of wedding."
"Cruises offer different options, from weddings at the port of departure for guests who are not going to travel, to weddings at sea and weddings at some of the ports where the cruise goes." The Walt Disney World theme park is still a popular wedding destination".
