Destination Wedding 

Plan Your All-Inclusive Destination Wedding

Hey there, lovely! This is such an exciting time for you and your fiancé. I am happy you're here. You've decided that your dream is to be a beach bride, exchanging your vows with the sound of the waves washing up on shore, and the gentle breeze rolling off the Caribbean, embraced by your closest family + friends, excited to celebrate your love...

 

We specialize in all-inclusive destination weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. 

Let's plan your dream wedding in paradise!

DESTINATION + RESORT DISCOVERY

You have many options when it comes to choosing your destination, but life is busy and finding the extra hours in the day for the research, planning and sifting through tons of internet info can be discouraging.  The good news is that I make it easier to narrow down options.

GUEST MANAGEMENT + LOGISTICS

We want you to be able to enjoy the excitement of planning your big

day, not wrapped up in guest details, room blocks, accounting and deadlines. I am here to ease that burden by simplifying these steps for you and your guests, all of the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed. 

RESORT INCENTIVES + ROOM BLOCK PERKS

I work for you, not the resorts, so I have your best interest at heart when I say we have access to the insider scoop. I can teach you how to make the most of your budget by introducing you to incentives that can help you put money back in your packet, while designing the destination wedding of your dreams.

We have the systems + tools already in place that allow us to work  together  seamlessly, and help you stay on top of your wedding timeline, and your guests feeling informed and ready to travel. 

Let's be real, planning a wedding is naturally a stressful time. But planning a destination wedding has way more moving parts that you may not be thinking about or prepared to oversee. I will meet you where you are at in the process and take a lot off your plate, allowing you to find joy in this crazy but exciting time!

With access to relationships throughout the Caribbean and Mexico I can help make connections you would otherwise become frustrated trying to do on your own. I have spent years cultivating connections to benefit my couples. 

Connecting couples with exceptionally romantic experiences is what Vacation Designs was really built for. Let's design a wedding that will have you, and your guests, talking about your celebration for years to come. 

I limit the number of destination weddings that I commit to every year. I personally work with each and everyone one of your guests to offer an exceptionally personalized experience for everyone in your group.

Schedule your free planning session. We'll talk about where you are in the process and you will learn about ways to stay within your budget, reduce worry + stress, stay on task without the overwhelm, and even get money back from the resort.

Here is what happens next...

Complete a quick Destination Wedding Questionnaire, then you pick the date / time that works best for you! If you don't see a time that works, email me!

 

During our 45-minute chat, I look forward to learning more about where you are in the process, what you feel the most stressed about, and share how I can help.

 

We will talk about next steps to working together!

 

Beautiful Beginnings

Thanks to Mandie at Vacation Designs our wedding at the Royalton Blue Waters in Jamaica was amazing. 

 

No one in my family has ever done a destination wedding so that was scary because we didn’t know what to expect.  Plus I did not want to stress out on how to go about planning a destination wedding so after much research we chose Vacation Designs. I fell in love with Mandie after she sent us a questionnaire to fill out. She than followed up with a whole presentation on her top three choices that catered to our budget and vision!  She was on point since day one. Never too many questions for her! Trust being a bride you ask a lot of questions and I did not annoy her not one bit!  Instead Mandie provided anything and everything we needed, and on top of that handled my family and friends well. 

 

Mandie is knowledgeable, always has her client's best interests in mind, very honest, and most importantly, accessible! We whole heartily appreciate everything you have done for us!

 

The whole experience was definitely worth it and one to remember. My family and friends keep talking about our epic wedding until this day!

Enjoy the journey to your dream wedding. It's the happiest time in your life and we genuinely want you to feel at ease, completely supported and confident in your decisions, so you can feel excited about your big day.

From the moment I met Mandie and I told her what I wanted and what I dreamed my destination wedding to be... she delivered . She made sure everything that I requested was top notch!!! She definitely aims to please. I had my wedding in Jamaica at Jewel Ocho Rios. It was everything I imagined and then more. Thank you Mandie!!! I definitely recommend using Mandie’s expertise in travel and wedding planning!

My business was launched in 2014 with everything romance travel in mind! Planning extraordinarily romantic honeymoons and diving into your dreamy destination wedding is the heart and soul of what I do, and really, what I love! 

 

Fun Fact:I grew up in the event planning industry, shadowing my Dad from a young age as he planned wedding celebrations and corporate events. Who knew I was getting a glimpse into my future?!

 

I have always gravitated toward project management. I have a love for research, organization, and logistics! I am someone who needs to know what makes something tick. 

My goal is always to help my couples organize the journey to their wedding day, feel at ease by my guidance and solid industry relationships, and completely supported and confident in their decisions.
