Planning an island wedding? Wondering what wedding travel agents do?


If you’ve never used the services of a wedding travel agent, you may not know what to expect! Check out some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve gotten from other couples who were planning their island wedding or romantic honeymoon. If you don’t find the answers that you’re looking for, just contact us for more info!

Q. Why shouldn’t we just book our honeymoon online ourselves?

Travel planning requires hours of research. Your honeymoon is the most important trip you’ll ever take, and usually represents a significant financial investment as well. You could spend hours looking around online; readings reviews, and hope for the best. Just as you wouldn’t make your own wedding cake, doesn’t it make sense to hire a professional to plan your honeymoon or destination wedding?

Q. What do you get from Bliss Honeymoons that we can’t get from booking it ourselves?

The primary differences are as follows:

Online agencies are notorious for overselling hotel rooms. This means you could show up at your destination only to learn that you can’t stay at the hotel you spent hours upon end researching and choosing. We have a “no walk” policy with our vendors. This means the hotel you book is the hotel you’ll stay at.
Our packages include everything-hotel, airfare, transfers, and insurance.
24 hour emergency assistance while you are traveling
We’ve been there! Our agents have traveled the world. You’ll benefit from our first-hand knowledge of the destinations and resorts.
There’s nothing that will ruin a relationship faster than mixing family, friends, and money. When Bliss Honeymoons handles your destination wedding, we will never ask the bride and groom to get involved in the financials of the other wedding guests. We handle all the payments.
Honeymoons and destination weddings just aren’t part of our business, it’s our only business. You’re not going to be working with an agent that usually does business travel or school trips. You’ll only be working with an experienced agent whose only focus is romance travel.

Q. Won’t it cost more to use Bliss Honeymoons?

At Bliss Honeymoons we get our pricing directly from the hotels. This means it’s the same price you would pay if you booked the airline or hotel yourself.

Q. I got this certificate for a free honeymoon from a vendor at a bridal show. Can you help me use it?

Like your mama always told you, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There is no such thing as a free lunch or a free honeymoon. Many of these “free” honeymoon certificates are questionable at best. Anytime a vendor has no website, won’t take a credit card, insists that you only pay by money order or wire, this is a huge red flag. They set up these guide lines so that there is no way for you to get a refund. If someone tells you that you can instantly receive travel agent discounts by paying a fee this is a big red flag as well.

We are amazed that the bridal show organizers continue to allow these companies to participate. If you’ve been the victim of one of these scams please let the bridal show and your local attorney general know. The bridal boards and BBB websites are filled with horror stories from brides that thought they were getting a free honeymoon. Don’t let it happen to you.

Q. How far in advance should I book my honeymoon?

To get the best pricing and availability we usually recommend that you book six to nine months in advance.

Q. Once I get married my name on my passport won’t be the same as my new last name. What should I do?

As long as your name on your airline ticket and your passport are the same, that’s all that matters to the people at airline security.

Q. I would like to work with Bliss Honeymoons, but there is no office in our area. What should we do?

That’s easy! Just send us an email and we’ll arrange an online or telephone consultation with the agency closest to you.

Q. We’re interested in working with Bliss Honeymoons. Can you just give us a quote?

Your honeymoon is the most important trip you’ll ever take, so we take the time to make sure that we understand what will really make it a trip of a lifetime before we start putting together pricing and itineraries. Having traveled to many resorts and destinations we can tell you with absolute certainty that there is often a big difference between the way a hotel looks online and the way it is when you get there. So before we start putting together options we first take the time to meet with you to get to know a little bit about you. This way we can make sure the hotels we are quoting are not just the right price, but the right ones for you. You can learn more about working with us here.

Q. We’re working on a tight budget. How can Bliss Honeymoons help us with that?

We can help you in two different ways! We offer payment plans on select honeymoon and destination wedding packages. And our honeymoon registry service is a great way to get family and friends to help pay for part of your honeymoon. Just ask us for more details.

Our unique approach responds to your needs. Unlike the impersonal nature of online sites, or the “order taker” approach taken by some agencies, we understand that there are many facets of this trip that will impact your experience. We take a hands-on approach to travel planning, and carefully examine each detail. Imagine the time you’ll save and headaches you’ll avoid by working with an experienced romance travel consultant!
