If you've recently popped the question or said yes to a proposal, congratulations! You can officially prepare to marry the partner of your dreams.

However, after cracking open a wedding magazine, you might realize that finding someone to spend your life with was the easy part. Deciding what type of wedding you want to have can feel like a daunting task. How can you possibly choose between saying "I do" in your local church and exchanging vows on a sunny beach?

To help you decide whether a destination wedding is right for you, we recommend you speak with a travel advisor. Liberty Travel's consultants, for example, know exactly what it takes to plan an elegant ceremony in an exotic locale—and are more than happy to offer advice to recently engaged couples. With that in mind, here are the top six destination wedding questions you should ask your travel advisor (and what sort of answers you can expect to receive).

What Are the Advantages of a Destination Wedding with Applebee Travel Agency?

Applebee Travel Agency can help you plan a destination wedding at a discounted rate. You won't have to worry about researching florists or organizing a late-night assembly line to make place cards, because most hotels have a dedicated wedding coordinator.

How Do I Decide Where to Go?

Every travel consultant will want to know if there's a location that has emotional significance for you and your partner. But they'll also encourage you to choose a destination that's easy for your guests to visit. If you live on the east coast, for instance, it might be more difficult to arrange travel to Hawaii than to the Caribbean (and vice versa for west coasters).

Once you've chosen a location, advisors can help you select a resort. Liberty Travel's Applebee Travel's destination wedding experts can easily narrow the search after knowing what you’re looking for. This includes the hotel's ceremony sites—so you can choose between beaches, ballrooms, gazebos, and gardens.

How Do I Actually Get Married? Are the Rules the Same as Back Home?

Laws about getting married vary across countries. Some locations require couples to be in a destination for a few days before their ceremony while others require health certificates or other paperwork. Your travel consultant can provide specific information for your chosen location.

How Do My Guests Book Their Hotel Rooms and Flights?

This is something travel consultants are particularly knowledgeable about. When a large group of people travel together, they qualify for a "room block"—essentially, the hotel will set aside a number of rooms to accommodate your guests. When you've received RSVPs, all you need to do is contact your advisor; they'll organize everything and work directly with the hotel to confirm the rooms you'll need.

Liberty Travel's consultants will also send communications to you regularly throughout the process. This may include any relevant travel requirements needed to arrive in your specific destination, such as proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests.

What Happens When the Wedding Is Over and It's Time for the Honeymoon?

You’ll obviously want to spend time alone with your new spouse, but it can be awkward to gracefully separate yourself from your guests. So what's the solution? Since you can’t really ask people not to extend their trip, consider arranging for an upgrade to a private preferred club for privacy. Some couples will even book their honeymoon at a separate hotel nearby or fly away to a different destination altogether. I always suggest that my couple plan the honeymoon separate from the wedding destination since the honeymoon is the couples special time for memories that will last forever.

Your travel professional will be able to seamlessly plan a separate honeymoon destination or transfer your wedding experience to your honeymoon one, by booking all of your travel necessities in one travel package. All you need to do is include this in your list of destination wedding questions. Let's talk about it. Call us at 617-906-8927 or schedule video time with one of our experts by clicking here.

What If There's a Change of Plans?

You’ll have a lot on your plate, so book through a travel consultant to make sure there’s someone on the ground in case something goes wrong. This is the person you’d call if your aunt misses her flight or someone in your group wants to change rooms. Rest assured, we’re here for you both before and during your big event.
