You know that you want your wedding to be a beautiful day in a spectacular destination.
But you’re not even sure where to start.
If you’re here, I’m guessing that your vision for your wedding involves taking your vows in a beautiful location far away from the place you call home. It’s also pretty likely that you are feeling the way I did when I planned my destination wedding… a little overwhelmed and incredibly frustrated.
Spoiler alert: I was a wedding planner. A DESTINATION WEDDING planner.
It’s likely that wedding planning isn’t exactly feeling like a picnic, but more like a complex mess of family politics, trying to communicate the vibe you’re looking for in the limited vocabulary left over from high school Spanish or French, and all the while trying to figure out why you can’t simply get the information you need in a timely fashion (sorry, island time is a real thing).
Perhaps your vision is crystal clear, but you aren’t sure where your vision can become reality.
Perhaps you know the location that you want to marry, but can’t get clear information from the vendors there.
Perhaps you don’t know if the budget you have can really work in the location you want.
Perhaps the only thing you know is that you want sand beneath your toes or soaring mountains surrounding you as you pledge forever… but you don’t know how to get from this moment of confusion to that moment of happiness.
Or perhaps, just perhaps, you’ve realized that what happens after a wedding is a marriage, and you wonder why no one is talking about incorporating that into the weekend.
Destinations Unveiled is here to help the process.
To show you the destinations and venues that will work best for you.
To help you clarify the process, the tasks, the never-ending lists, and to give you all of the information you need to make informed decisions that you won’t have second thoughts on.
Seriously, does this sound familiar?!? When it comes to planning your wedding, you’re:
With so many absolutely beautiful and unique options for everything out there, and websites focused entirely on showing you every option there is to consider, you are starting to feel like a ping pong ball. Thoughts like “I really love the rustic driftwood and handmade votive candle centerpieces, but the lighting in the black tie ballroom was amazing, “ are constantly running through your head.
Destinations Unveiled will guide you through the selection process so that it feels as though the decisions are making themselves.
We get it. There are a lot of decisions, and a lot of variables. Your parents are divorced, your uncle hates the beach, or your prone-to-drama cousin is insisting on bringing her children to your adults-only resort. Maybe you just want a casual cocktail reception, but when you mentioned that to your mother, she recoiled in horror that you weren’t going to be providing a sit down dinner.
Destinations Unveiled will advise, instruct and lead you through each decision and situation that you’ll face through the planning process.
Hey, it happens. Chances are, there are plenty of other things going on in your life, and this is taking time away from those things.
Destinations Unveiled can help with the process by streamlining all of the decisions you need to make so that you can focus on what is important to YOU.
Realize that your wedding day needs to be a reflection of you, not a carbon copy of something from Pinterest.
Believe that your wedding is the start of a new and amazing chapter in your life, and you want that beginning to be amazing.
Understand that life happens, things arise, and challenges occur but want to stay on track and plan your wedding in a way that is super fun, very relaxed, and uniquely creative and personal. If we do say so ourselves!
ORRRRRR…. Maybe you just think it would be fun to plan your wedding with the amazing support team that Destinations Unveiled has to offer. It’s all good either way.
DESTINATIONS UNVEILED’S UNVEILED PLANNER
is an 8 month online video-based destination wedding planning program that shows you,
step-by-step, how to decide on the wedding destination of your dreams, how to navigate
family dynamics LIKE A BOSS, and how to select and work with your vendors to create
a wedding that is 100% Y-O-U.
What you need is someone to help you DIY your wedding in style.
That’s EXACTLY what we do, my friend.
Unsure About so, So, SO Much…
Flat Out Over It…
You want help with your wedding because you:
If any of the above sounds familiar,
We’ve got a pretty awesome solution for all of that!
What is the plan?
Working with each vendor individually, you will plan the individual elements of your wedding weekend. Our dashboard’s vendor notes and worksheets will assist you in having comprehensive discussions with each vendor in order to finalize your vendor service plans, and we will schedule your site visit so that you can review and confirm the decisions that you have made.
Your wedding day is almost here! Six weeks before your wedding, we will review all of the decisions, contracts and timelines and make any adjustments that are necessary based on your final guest list. You will send out your final “All Parties” communication and worksheets, make or schedule your final payments and finalize all of your to-do, packing and shipping lists. Best of all, you will create your final wedding workbook for easy reference while you are in your destination, and focus on the amazing experience that getting married surrounded by the friends and family you love will be!
We will further expand on the work you did in section six to further personalize the food and beverage, décor elements and individual elements and moments in the day. Throughout this section, we will focus on the “extra special touches” that will wow your guests, and reflect the uniqueness that is entirely yours.
Your guests want to help make your wedding day exactly what you want it to be, and the best way to “help them help you” is to clearly communicate your wishes. In this section, we will schedule, select, design and write your Save-the-Dates, Invitations, Wedding Website and Welcome Letters, as well as discuss and create and social media groups or hashtags that you might want.
Creating a strong structure for the week and weekend of your wedding will ensure that you can enjoy every minute of your destination stay. Throughout this section, we will create a detailed week timeline, plan an intimate and personal ceremony, create weather and contingency plans (that you will hopefully never use!) and design and chart seating, floor plans, and event flow for an optimal wedding experience for all.
This planning section sets the tone for your planning process over the next few months! We will explore the exciting beginning of the planning process – creating your preliminary planning and weekend timeline, announcing your engagement, and thinking about your bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelor/bachelorette events. We will also discuss selecting your bridal party, creating your preliminary guest list, developing your storyboard and setting up your Pinterest account, and choosing your date range. Most importantly, we will create a comprehensive wedding budget that will guide your decisions in the modules to come!
Evaluation and selection of possible destinations and venues for your ceremony, reception, lodging and other ancillary events (Welcome Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, Brunches, Luncheons and Group Activities) will be the focus during this Section. We will work together to consider venue types, lodging options and contracts, destination weather, reception styles, and the difference between on site and off site options. Once your destination selction has been made, we will adjust your wedding budget to reflect destination and venue costs for food and beverage, average vendor costs, and common additional fees and costs specific to your wedding destination.

We will review all of the possible vendors that will be a part of your day, the questions to ask, the elements to consider and the information to include in your contracts. Lots of fun sheets, discussions and personalized elements will be discussed throughout this section.
