Share the article

You and your loved one have said “I do” to a wedding in the south. Imagine exchanging vows at sunset, your feet in the fine sand, surrounded by the gentle melody of the waves and your loved ones. You can already feel the tropical breeze and the scent of exotic flowers, can’t you? It’s fantastic! But where to start? Where do you want to get married? What should you wear? Do you want to hire mariachis for the reception? All excellent questions! Organising a dream wedding in a paradise destination is an exciting adventure, but it can also seem daunting. The key to success lies in surrounding yourself with the right people.

Here are the key people who can help you plan your big day and make it perfect.

Travel Agent

From expert advice on destinations and hotels to booking your trip, this is where your preparations take shape. Your travel agent can

  • Suggest destinations and hotels for your wedding
  • Check available dates for your wedding
  • Book your trip, including both airline seats and hotel rooms for you and your guests (who can deal directly with the agent for payment)
  • Inform you of the wonderful benefits of a Transat wedding
  • Inform you of the on-board extras available for your guests
  • Recommend and book group excursions
  • Put you in touch with the wedding coordinator at the hotel of your choice
