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. How far in advance of my wedding date should I meet with you?

For a honeymoon, anniversary trip, or romantic getaway, we recommend approximately ten months before your departure date. For a destination wedding, we schedule up to one year in advance.

Q. When are you available to speak with me?

We offer day, evening, and weekend consultations. If you don’t see a time on our schedule that works for you, please send an email to laura@blisshoneymoons.com with the date and time you’d like to schedule.

Q. Is the consultation really free?

Yes. It’s really free. And if you meet with us at our office, we’ll even let you raid the office mini-bar. We have an excellent selection of imported beers and tasty snacks!

Q. Why should I meet with Bliss Honeymoons instead of booking my own trip online?

Simply, because no one on Tripadvisor is staking their professional reputation on the outcome of your trip. Your honeymoon or destination wedding will likely be one of the most memorable trips you’ll ever take. You could spend countless hours online, researching rates and reading reviews without really being certain of what you’re actually getting. Our agents personalize your itinerary to fit your budget and wishlist. And… we travel constantly so we’re typically recommending hotels and itineraries that we’ve experienced ourselves.

Q. I am really busy. Can you email me a quote or information without a consultation?

We understand crazy schedules. Because your trip may be the most memorable one you’ll ever take, we never jump into pricing and itineraries without first having a conversation with you. After the initial consultation, we can do everything via email if you’d prefer.

Q. Won't it cost more to book with Bliss Honeymoons than booking online?

All travel agencies, both online and agencies like ours, get paid the same way-by the hotels after you’ve checked out. So when you book online, you’re doing all the work, but the online site is getting paid.

At Bliss Honeymoons we have the same rates that you’ll find by booking direct, at no additional cost to you. And you’ll get to support a local business as well!

Q. Which agent should I meet with?

We want to schedule you with the agent who has the most knowledge and experience in your desired destinations. You can see all of our agent profiles and schedule directly with them by clicking here.

Q. It looks like you’re in Ohio. I am in another state. Can I still work with you?

Yes! We work with couples nationwide!

Q. When is the best time to book my honeymoon?

We recommend that you book your honeymoon approximately ten months before your expected departure date.

Q. What destinations do you offer?

It would be easier to tell you what destinations we don’t offer! We can send you almost anywhere in the world! Europe, Asia, Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Central America, Tahiti, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand… each of these is a Yes!

Although, other than Alaska and Hawaii, we don’t offer any domestic travel.

Q. Do you have a honeymoon registry?

Yes, we have an awesome honeymoon registry. We’ll go over it with you in detail during your consultation.

Q. We're planning a destination wedding. When should we get started?

We recommend approximately 12 months in advance. While many couples what to start more than a year out, rates are often not yet available. While we understand that you want to give your guests enough time to plan for time off work, etc. we find that most wedding guests book no more than nine months in advance. 

Q. What if we want to see the resorts before we decide where to get married?

We offer several destination wedding preview trips. Ask us for more details.

Q. What are the best locations for a destination wedding?

Most of our destination weddings take place in Mexico, Jamaica, St Lucia, The Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. While there are other lovely islands in the Caribbean, we find the resorts on these islands offer the best value when it comes to destination weddings. Due to costs or hotel options, we don’t currently offer weddings in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Bermuda, or any of the US Virgin Islands.

Q. Can we get a group discount?

Dependent upon the size of your group, you may qualify for a free wedding, group discount, and many other perks! The best way to learn more is to schedule a free consultation.

Q. What do your destination wedding planning services include?

We take care of everything so that you can focus on planning your ceremony & reception. You can read more about our destination wedding services here.
