I LOVE to travel -- to explore new places; try new foods; experience new culture; relax on gorgeous beaches; the reasons why I love to travel are endless!
But, I HATE to leave my furbaby at home!!! I have serious heartache when I have to leave my sweet girl behind. I mean, just look at that face!!!
There's a lot that goes into planning a vacation, not to mention if you're planning your destination wedding!! And keeping your furry family member out of the plans is heart wrenching!
Finding a suitable doggy sitter, ensuring they will be safe and happy and cared for while you're gone, facing timing them from the beach... (yes I do this -- #crazydoglady) There's lots that goes into keeping your dog at home while you're away.
Fortunately, now I can bring my dog on vacay with me!! Yup, you read that right!
Breathless Riviera Cancun, an adults only all inclusive resort situated on the beautiful white sand beaches of the Riviera Maya coast line in Mexico allows small dogs in selected room categories!!
So, what's all this mean... I've scooped all the details for you!
While there are restrictions, you now can bring your small pup along with you for your vacay, or destination wedding!! Every dog mom and dad want to have photos with their furchild with them on their wedding day! And you're used to sharing your bed, albeit, sacrificing your own sleep comfort, so bring that spoiled pooch with you to snuggle together in your luxurious king sized bed!
What does that mean to me? Now my sweet Casey can come along with me on vacation! (If only this had been available for my own destination wedding! I would have been totally down, and while my husband may put up a tough guy front he adores our little pup)
So to sum up, everything is better with a dog and that includes your vacation to Breathless Riviera Cancun! I cannot wait to bring Casey and pamper my girl with all the unlimited-luxury inclusions they can offer her!
Her nickname is Princess Paws for a reason ;)
What does this resort offer for their human guests? Glad you asked!

The xhale club section (dog-friendly rooms) for those seeking an elevated level of personal service and luxury, the energy center for those looking to mix & mingle and the xcelerate Party Zone for those who live and breathe for the party.

Endlessly searching websites, blogs, forums and travel sites to decide which resort is the best for your destination wedding? Or maybe you're old school and like flipping through travel brochures and magazines? There are so many options and soon you start to wonder, "How do I choose?!".
I've heard this question countless times! Wedding couples are always asking how to narrow down the right resort. "Will my friends like it?" "Will there be enough to do?" "Will it be too quite.. or too much of a party crowd?" "Can they offer the style of wedding I want?" "Do they even do weddings!?"
There are lots of factors to consider when narrowing down the right resort. Of course you want a resort that your guests will love; it's their vacation too therefore it's got to be within budget. But don't forget the main reason you're all there.. YOUR WEDDING! Does the resort have a wedding date, time and location available during the week you're there?
Your wedding festivities will create a few more questions that must be taken into consideration! Does the resort have a reputable wedding department? Can they offer the style and type of events you envision for your wedding celebration? Does the resort offer packages or add on services you may want for your big day?
These are questions we answer daily! We can easily narrow down the best resort options for you and your wedding group. We are a huge asset when planning your destination wedding having years of experience working with resorts, airlines, wedding vendors and wedding departments,
and if that's not enough, all of our wedding planners have been married at destination, so we have first hand tips and suggestions as former destination couples ourselves!
I recently returned from another trip to St Lucia. The island itself is stunning and lush and evokes a magical feel with it's rainforests and majestic famous peaks, the Pitons!
Since this was not my first time to this tropical island I was already aware of some of things that make St Lucia so inviting to visitors from around the world! However it was my sister's first trip here, so I was excited to share what I knew and already loved about this small Caribbean hot spot!
I always say "the further away the destination, the better it is" which is totally true in this case. From the interior of British Columbia, Canada, this island is a bit of a distance to travel to. St Lucia is located in the Eastern Caribbean, only 3 islands north of South America, boasting gorgeous weather, crystal clear waters and history dating back centuries.
This destination is ideal for couples wanting an exotic feel of a true tropical getaway with the comforts of well appointed accommodations and amenities! With day trips to the rainforest, waterfalls, mud baths, hot springs, deep sea fishing, sailing, scuba diving, ziplining, snokeling, hiking, shopping, gambling, touring rum factories and banana plantations; there is endless possibility to keep busy. And if you prefer to relax and unwind there are countless beaches, spas, pools and ways to escape in St Lucia!
Of course another reason to come to the Caribbean is the cool beverages, mouth watering food and fresh fruits! I was beyond please to find local fruit vendors selling homegrown, handpicked local fruits from their kayaks each day on the beach! My kind of breakfast!
St Lucia offers a backdrop like none other to say "I do". View breathtaking views of the Piton mountains to turquoise blues of the Caribbean Sea and tropical palm tree beaches you can be married in your choice of local!
St Lucia now features the Caribbean's first and only overwater chapel located at Sandals Grande St Lucian. Set at the end of a pier providing stunning 360 degrees views of Rodney Bay, featuring a glass bottom floor and ample space for loved ones to celebrate your I do's. This is the crème de la crème of locations.
Ready to plan your destination wedding in St Lucia!? Let's get started!

These days everyone is online -- my grandma uses an iPhone and my 2 year old nephew uses an iPad like no one's business! So, here are some 21 century tips on planning your destination wedding.
Wedding Butlers offers major advantages and cost saving perks like wedding websites and e-vites at no extra costs!
Our services include a wedding website that contains all the need to know info for your guests!
All of the must have details like celebration dates, location and of course, cost.
Plus some cool extras like a guest book so friends and family can write you a message. A photo gallery of the happy couple and beautiful tropical pics of the destination and resort!
We also include an advanced RSVP system that allows guests to accept or decline your invite which will then send them the instructions on how to complete their reservation.
Seamless, stress-free and simple! All at your fingertips!
These days it's essential to have a wedding website.
If you aren't following us on Pinterest, you should be! It's a necessary tool for finding wedding inspiration! Our boards and pins are specifically geared for the resorts and venues we work with so they're filled with what has been done, what can be done and some pretty awesome ideas that you will want to consider!
One of the challenging things of having a destination wedding is that you may not be aware of what your options are and some of the resources are limited. But, that's where we come in! We've been to these places! We've planned countless events here! We've had our own weddings on these same beaches and resorts! Not to mention the strong relationship we've built with our vendors and resorts. Wedding Butlers can make your Pinterest wedding a reality!
E-vites & Newsletters:
People are attached to their phones, emails, social networks... so put the information where the people are! While sending out paper invitations may be the formal and traditional way, it's not necessarily as practical when it comes to planning a destination wedding.
In most cases the quote you receive for your destination wedding is only valid for a certain length of time. In that time frame you and your guests will need to put down a deposit to confirm their reservation. Having a time constraint can make things tricky when waiting on Mr Postman. You will want to give everyone the info as soon as you can to allow them ample time to make their reservation. Plus the way we create your beautifully designed e-vite guests can click to get to your wedding website instantly!
Our mailing system is pretty sophisticated. It allows us to see who has opened or not opened your e-vite! We use this same tool to send out some helpful reminders to your group like "your balance is due" or "packing tips for your big trip!" even "check out these local tours". Don't worry, we'll only send a few and at your permission -- we promise not to bug your guests!
Wedding Butlers' services are a major asset when planning your day in paradise! Looking to tie the knot somewhere tropical? We would love to help!
