COVER THE COST OF TRAVEL FOR GUESTS This is a big splurge, but making sure the people you care about most are able to be at your wedding is priceless. Talk to our travel agents about special rates for group travel for your air and hotel. Often times you get better rates when they are booked as a package. THROW A WELCOME PARTY Although not a necessity, a pre-wedding welcome party is a great way for guests to get to know one another and set the tone for your time together. There are no rules for an event like this, so whether you’re thinking cocktails on the veranda or beers on the beach, let your style be your guide. FOR YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING YOU WON’T REGRET BOOK A PHOTOGRAPHER You’ve already picked a photographer, so why not hire them for a few extra hours to capture your guests’ special moments too? Whether it’s a portrait of your cousin’s new baby or casual pics of your best friends goofing around by the pool, take advantage of the gorgeous locale and send guests home with frame-worthy professional snaps.
