What we discuss during the planning process:
- Food and Beverages
- Location for the ceremony and reception
- Décor details (for examples you can take a look at our “Destination Wedding” galleries)
- Floral arrangements
A Photographer is always brought with us to the destination from Vancouver. This way we have the freedom to have photos all throughout the week and do off site photo shoots, which are always the best! Local photographers can be very costly and often run by the hour. They also only give you a certain number of photos and we do not recommend it.
Over the next year, Forever True International Wedding Designs keeps in full contact with the resort. We give the clients a list of things that they need to have done and completion dates. We arrive at the destination a week before the group to finalize all of the Destination Wedding details with the resort and get everything ready for the client’s arrival. Due to large changes with resorts, the final week of planning is the most important part.
When the clients and the guests arrive, we are there to:
- Greet all guests
- Help get guests settled
- Be on-call to the group
- Take care of any legal paper work
We want to ensure that the Bride and Groom enjoy each others company and are as relaxed as possible. Forever True International Wedding Designs will correspond with all hotel staff and vendors throughout the Destination Wedding with our wedding day coordination.
To help the guests feel settled, we always put together an itinerary for the week so that they know what activities are planned and when. We make sure to have that ready for them in their room upon arrival, as well as welcome bags if that is something the clients wish to do. In some countries, we cannot always get our hands on items for weddings that are needed. (Ex. table linens, décor pieces, welcome bags). Any items that we need and cannot get at the destination will come with our wedding planners from Vancouver. We will arrange any activities that they are interested in, as well as ones that the clients have already planned for them. Forever True International Wedding Designs will be at the rehearsal, wedding day, all activities and also any off-site photo shoots for the client. With our Destination Wedding package, we take care of everything so that you and your guests can have fun, enjoy the sun and not have to worry about anything!
Destination Wedding Coordination starts at $3500 and may go up based on logistics and level of execution. After a consultation, we will give you a detailed quote on your wedding.
