What does your dream wedding look like?

 

Have you ever thought about having a destination wedding?  Where is the most romantic place you can imagine getting married?  In Mexico on the beach?  In the Dominican Republic under a veil-draped bamboo canopy?  Or how about in Hawaii at sunset?  Whatever the dream, whatever the destination, we can make it happen!

 

Why have a
destination wedding?

      One common misconception about destination weddings is that they are more stressful to plan.  Surveys show that they are actually less stressful to plan as each resort has a dedicated wedding planner on site that will handle all of the details.  Also, with destination weddings, everything can be at one location: ceremony, reception, honeymoon.

       At Sage Travel, we have contacts with many destination wedding resorts and suppliers to make planning that much easier.

Wedding packages and other inclusions.

     Each resort has some of the same inclusions in their wedding packages as well as some unique items.  Some common package inclusions are:

  • Ceremony location with ceremony structure and guest seating.

  • Bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere.

  • Justice of the peace or minister to perform ceremony.

  • Wedding cake and music.

  • Decorations and flowers for the reception.

 

     Many of the resorts also offer unique services in their packages.  Some of these may include:

  • Cultural or religious ceremony.

  • Witnesses (if needed).

  • Spa treatments for the bride and groom.

  • Personalized wedding website.

  • Romantic breakfast for the newlyweds the next morning.

 

     At Sage Travel, we will work closely with you and the resort wedding planner to make sure all details are taken care of.

Picking a location.

     Picking a location for your destination wedding may seem difficult at first but can actually be quite fun!  There are so many beautiful and different locations to choose from:

  • Mexico

  • Hawaii

  • Dominican Republic

  • Aruba

  • St. Lucia

  • Florida  

     Legal marriage requirements can vary from destination to destination.  Sage Travel has access to all of this information and will keep you well informed.

Honeymoon.

     One great part about a destination wedding is that the honeymoon can take place right at the same resort as the wedding!  This gives the newlyweds more time for relaxation and more time to enjoy their honeymoon.  Many of the resorts also offer honeymoon packages.  Some common inclusions are:

  • Bottle of champagne.

  • Tropical fruit.

  • NIghtly romantic turn down service.

  • Discount on spa treatments.

  • His & Her robes.

  • Free nights for a return stay on your anniversary.

 

    We can also assist you in setting up a honeymoon registry as another gift-giving option for your guests.  Call Sage Travel for more information.
