Frequently Asked Questions
Why have a destination wedding?
A destination wedding combines the sweetness of a ceremony with the fun of a sunny vacation. It’s a unique bonding experience giving you a whole week of fun together to build memories that will last a lifetime between both sides of the family. Cost is another major factor as destination weddings are substantially less expensive than a traditional wedding at home. We can plan a destination wedding on any budget contact us today!
How far in advance should I plan my destination wedding?
Ideally you want to start the planning roughly 12 - 15 months in advance of your special day. This gives us time to research and put together the best scenario for you and make sure we have all the resort choices available that you might want. Although time is important if you are considering a last minute destination wedding we can still help! There is always something available for everyone we can make it work!
Do I need a wedding planner still?
The simple answer to that is no. We will help you with all the initial planning and details and most resorts have an onsite wedding coordinator that will take over and help us plan all the finer details. The onsite coordinators are also the ones who walk you through everything once you arrive on property.
Is my marriage legal?
Of course! A destination wedding held in any country is legal as long as you have a legal ceremony in the destination. You just register your marriage license once it arrives to you back in Canada and you are all set. There is symbolic wedding options in most destinations as well which is a non legal or renewal of vows ceremony but this is why you have us to make sure you have all the right arrangements made!
Is there a lot of legal requirements?
The legal requirements vary from country to country and have different degrees of difficulty. This is something we will walk you through when picking a destination and make sure you are matched with a destination that best suits your needs. These are the type of details we worry about not you, we just want you to be happy pack your bags and go have fun!
Do you only book certain resorts or destinations?
