Sandra Swash from Vacation Travel Group specializes in destination weddings not only because she loves helping couples have an amazing day, but also because she enjoys thinking outside of the box. “Not all destination weddings need to be in the Caribbean. There are so many amazing destinations,” she says.
Sandra’s services include providing suggestions for resorts, securing group rates, advising the couple’s guests on booking details, and working with the couple and the resort to plan the day.
She also offers extensive insight into various destinations having traveled to most of the Caribbean, U.S., most of Canada, in Europe, Kenya, Chile and China. When asked about which destinations she’s especially experienced in, she says the Caribbean, Ireland and Italy. Her top three resorts for weddings are Majestic, Palace, and AM Resorts.
The challenges Sandra says most couples come across when planning a destination wedding are: “the legalities of getting married in a foreign country, understanding language barriers and not understanding the costs involved.”
Many of her clients get married legally before they depart and then have a symbolic wedding in the destination. One couple even married in a limousine bus with 20 guests on the way to the airport – the couple went to New York for wedding photos and then on a cruise for their honeymoon.
Her advice is for any couple embarking on the destination wedding journey is to enjoy the adventure and let professionals help with the details. “We care for our couples and count them as friends. We want them to have an amazing journey through the process.”
