What does a Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Specialist do anyway? A lot of couples that we meet have this exact question from the start.
With many of our couples growing up using the internet and so many travel sites out there today, you are probably asking why do you need a planner/agent/consultant (whatever term you want to use, we prefer consultant)? Or even, what is a travel consultant? And what can we do for you that you can’t do for yourself?
You have questions and we want to answer those. Let’s start with the “why” and the “what” to help give you more insight?
The world is a big place. With so many places to see and explore, how do you decide where you will spend your honeymoon and why is it right for you? And what are the “new” destinations that are becoming more and more popular in the honeymoon world?
Contrary to popular belief, the key to a designing a great honeymoon is to NOT start with the destination. When you start with a specific destination(s) you limit the possibilities from the beginning. And in the end, based on your criteria and interests, there my be a better fit. I recommend going through some specific questions to start. Rank what it a must have, nice to have, etc. and then figure out what destinations fit your criteria best.
First lets talk about some things to consider in defining your criteria on honing in on possible destinations.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Fiji and experience this amazing destination first hand. This was my first visit and my expectations of what was in store were different from what I experienced. Not in a bad way, more so from a logistical standpoint, location of resorts, distance between them, etc. Things tend to look different on a map, remember that if you are trying to figure things out on your own.
As a travel professional, I tend to “compare” certain destinations that have similarities. Having traveled all over Mexico, the Caribbean and twice to Tahiti, I thought for sure it would be similar. What I found with Fiji is that you just cannot compare it to any other. I fell in love with just about everything from the moment I arrived, and I am sure you will too. Since there is far too much to put in one blog post I will break it up into several. Let’s start with the reasons I fell in love with Fiji and why I think you’ll love it for your honeymoon.
