You are engaged, now what do you do?
Written by Marie Glodt at Travel to Maui, Hawaiian Destination Specialist
The holidays have begun, you have just gotten engaged, and the families have been told of your upcoming wedding plans. Now what should you do?
The next step is to hire a wedding coordinator and a travel agent who specializes in your desired destination.
Choosing your wedding consultant is the first step toward the wedding of your dreams. It is important to choose a coordinator that shares your vision of the wedding and can make that vision into a reality. Your wedding consultant should have an excellent reputation with both the wedding vendors, and past clients, unique ideas and creativity to share.
Hiring a professional travel specialist with these same qualifications will make your romantic honeymoon or destination wedding “the vacation of a lifetime!”
Planning a honeymoon? Hawaii & Tahiti are among the top honeymoon and destination wedding locations. They also provide a wide range of resort and activities or excursions. Some of the most popular tours would include: a luau (great for rehearsal dinners), snorkel trip, a scenic helicopter flight over an active volcano, swimming with the dolphins, romantic sunset sail, and more.
Planning a destination wedding? It is advisable that you plan at least six to twelve months prior to your wedding. This allows your guests ample time to arrange their travel reservations and coordinate with your plans. It is customary for guests to pay their own travel costs for destination weddings, but many couples provide transportation for the wedding party, or host a special event for their guest other than the wedding itself.
We here at Travel to Maui will assure you of the quality vacation you looking for without the stress and time involved while trying to arrange things on your own.
• "The time an agency spends on your behalf may be worth any fees you'll have to pay." Frommer's Hawaii
• “A competent agent takes the time to listen to what you want, and then makes recommendations based on your needs. In fact, good travel agents don't consider themselves agents at all, but "specialists in a destination or travel type.” "They can get you information that can't be found on the Web. They listen more than they speak and then wow you with the perfect trip!”
• “The right travel agent that will save you the most money will have a few distinct traits. First, the travel agent will ask you tons of questions about your plans, travel itinerary, preferences, and flexibility. The travel agent that asks these questions will have a better chance of finding you deals that you can work with!”
