Tips For Planning A Surprise Vow Renewal

| December 9th, 2013 | No Comments »

Whether you’re hoping to surprise the love of your life with a vow renewal ceremony to mark a big anniversary or you’re treating a special couple with the romantic gesture, there are some things you’ll need to consider to pull off such a big undertaking on the down low.  When having the element of surprise is half the fun, you’ll need to pay attention to the little details while making certain no one tips off the honoree or honorees.

Here are some details you’ll want to attend to as early in the planning as possible:

  • The date and location: These two particular items go hand-in-hand whether you’re planning a ceremony in the couple’s backyard or one on an exotic island in the South Pacific. Without the date, you can’t book the venue. If possible, consider hosting the ceremony on or close to the couple’s actual anniversary. This proximity can help you with your “cover story,” but we’ll get more into that later.
  • The ceremony details: Be sure to answer questions like what type of ceremony should be held, who will officiate and how the sequence of events will play out as early as possible. Also be sure to start considering the post-ceremony reception as early as you can. Keep in mind, the ceremony and reception don’t have to be as elaborate as an actual wedding.
  • The guest list: This is an incredibly important detail you won’t want to leave on the backburner for long. Even if you plan on hosting the ceremony close to the couple’s home, people will need advance notice to be able to attend. This can be especially so if the location requires travel. Be sure to let guests know about the surprise factor involved. And, don’t feel overwhelmed by planning a huge guest list. Some of the most memorable renewal ceremonies only involve close family and a few dear friends.
  • The cover story: Once you have the where, when, who, how and after party planned, you’re going to need to be able to get your couple to the location, dressed appropriately. This is where a cover story comes in. For renewals that take place close to anniversary dates, the cover can be simple. “We’re taking you out to a fancy dinner to celebrate,” will suffice for a ceremony close to home. “We all chipped in for a romantic trip to (insert your dream location here) for your anniversary,” can work wonders for a ceremony that involves travel. Just be sure your story is believable.

Planning a vow renewal ceremony for your love or a couple that’s dear can take a lot of forethought. To make it easier when it comes to ironing out those little details, consider bringing in our anniversary travel experts early in the planning. Our pros can help with everything from travel arrangements to booking a venue for the party.

Bliss Honeymoons Offers Innovative Service for Online Travel Site Users

| September 15th, 2013 | No Comments »

September 16, 2013 Columbus, Ohio-BlissHoneymoons, the leader in romance travel, is offering a unique service to couples who have elected to book their honeymoon package with an online agency such as Expedia or Travelocity. “Every day we hear from brides who booked their honeymoon online, only to realize that they had missed some important element that nearly ruined their trip,” said Laura Frazier, founder of


“Sometimes it’s something as simple as a transfer, while other times it’s something much more serious, such as a construction project going on at the resort. We know that many online travel site users overlook things that can really make a big difference in the quality of their trip. So we decided to offer a free itinerary review to help make sure these couples have the best experience possible, and avoid common booking mistakes.”

While some experienced travelers may be aware of the pitfalls of booking online and know what kind of errors to avoid, less experienced travelers may not. Quiet often these DIY brides and grooms get so caught up in reading online reviews or, looking for the best price possible, that they miss a key component of their honeymoon package.

Over the years, the staff at Bliss Honeymoons has seen a variety of issues with bookings couples have made online. “We’ve heard from destination wedding guests who thought they had booked their air to San Jose Del Cabo, (SJD); find themselves in San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) instead,” Frazier said. “We recently heard from a traveler via our Facebook page who booked their anniversary trip through one of the big online agencies, only to arrive and find the hotel was completely boarded up.”

At Bliss Honeymoons, we know that many travelers believe the misconception that using a travel agent costs more than booking online. Not only are our honeymoon package prices the same or better than what travelers find online, but we’re often able to offer our clients advice or amenities that enhances their travel experience and offers them the best value for their travel investment.

Due to their already busy schedule and the overwhelming demand for this service, Bliss Honeymoons is reviewing a limited number of DIY itineraries per week. Travelers must have a confirmed booking they made via an online agency to use the service. “At Bliss Honeymoons we really do believe that everyone deserves a great honeymoon, no matter how they chose to book it,” said Frazier “If we can help someone avoid a stressful situation while showcasing the difference the services of a travel professional can make, it’s a win-win for everyone.”
