With 10 years experience, Elizabeth Buchanan from Paradise Weddings offers a full range of services for planning destination weddings. She makes sure to personalize wedding plans, creating itineraries that reflect the couple and their dreams. She also has expertise in LGBTQ and Indian weddings.
When asked why she became a destination wedding planner, Elizabeth says that she was “guided by a love for travel and the romance of weddings, I am moved by the chance to help couples create an experience that is truly unforgettable. I am their advocate, alleviating stress and implementing exacting details to fulfill their vision.”
Elizabeth has travelled to and specializes in Mexico (Cancun, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta), Jamaica, Barbados, Dominican Republic, Hawaii, with her favourite destination being Jamaica. Her top three resorts are Dreams La Romana
Hyatt Ziva, Puerto Vallarta Sandos, and Playacar.
“Picking their venue based on what they think their guests want, and not what THEY want” is the biggest mistake she says couples make. When asked what’s her best advice for couples, Elizabeth says: “Set a wedding budget early in the process, don’t go too crazy with welcome bags, and always purchase travel insurance.”
