I know you've heard it before but its worth repeating, 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙗𝙚!
Your wedding is a big deal, 𝙬𝙚. 𝙜𝙚𝙩. 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩!
Most destination weddings are booked about 12 to 14 months prior to saying I Do. So, you'll be working with your travel agent and wedding planner for a long time. Think of all that can happen in 14 months; Birthday celebrations, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and all things Pumpkin Spice, Santa dropped off presents, New Year's Eve kisses, Heart-shaped chocolate boxes on Valentine's day, the Easter bunny comes, babies are born... OMG the list goes on.
I can't stress this enough - you have to like who you're working with.
Everyone's goal is an amazing wedding to be shared with friends and family and an unforgettable vacation experience.
Throughout the year process you need to work with someone who understands your expectations, vision, lifestyle, sense of humor (we can't take everything so serious).
It doesn't hurt to have some common ground, perhaps a favorite wine or can't miss tv show, or favorite sports team! Get to know each other. Maybe you both belong to book clubs, or have a shared love for golden retrievers, or you can't go a week without hitting up a hot yoga class.
Our clients are not a number or just another wedding. We love to get to know our couples and their guests and creating friendships with them!
So I'll 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙙𝙫𝙞𝙘𝙚: when vetting your travel agent / wedding planner absolutely yes, make sure they're well versed in group travel, destination weddings and the resort/venue and promotions that apply but also get to know them. Find out a bit about them and see 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙬𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙟𝙞𝙫𝙚!
And hey, if we aren't your style that's okay too! Different strokes for different folks 😉
Did you know you can book up to 39 rooms for your destination wedding with only a $500 deposit!

Who's behind the scenes
This is Casey. She's a big part of Wedding Butlers.
She's our behind the scene support, whether it be during client calls or creating wedding websites, planning your big day, arranging travel reservations, preparing invoices or sending travel documents she is always next to us (or stealing our chair).
She's an international traveler too! She's lived in Mexico! She's been to several resorts and all inclusives so she can recommend the best dog friendly ones! She's even been in a destination wedding herself as the ring dog and totally stole the show (apologies to her auntie Pannie). With her extensive past staying at amazing resorts and a former destination wedding PAW-ty member she is your go-to for advise on how to walk down the aisle and deliver the rings.
Casey's a huge part of our life and business! We know how much pet family members mean to our clients and clients to be. We are fortunate to now have several resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean who feel the same about our furry family members and can't wait to welcome and spoil them!
To date, Casey has been on 17 international flights and all have been smooth sailing. The process may seem overwhelming to bring your dog with you -- but rest assured it's EASY PEASY!
Although there is paperwork involved with traveling to another country with your dog it's all pretty straight forward. This is just another area of travel that we can help navigate and guide you through.
Are you thinking of including your dog at your destination wedding and need help to do so? We're the experts!

Who is Wedding Butlers?
Who is Wedding Butlers? What do they do for me? How can they help me? Why do I need them?
Wedding Butlers provides assistance for brides and grooms in planning their destination wedding. We are certified wedding planners through the Wedding Planning Institute of Canada and registered travel agents. We’ve combined both of these professions to create unique and personalized destination weddings.
Our expertise comes from both formal education and from personal experiences. Book knowledge is wonderful but you can't touch the Caribbean Sea in a book and you can’t walk down a stretch of white sugary beach to your wedding alter in a book either. We fully believe that without personally experiencing what we do, we couldn't do it!
Wedding Butlers provides packages for brides and grooms and their guests. We create custom packages specific for each destination wedding. Wedding Butlers plans destination weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean. These are the destinations we travel to on a regular basis. We're so focused on these destinations and the Wedding Industry that our knowledge is always the most up-to-date! Plus, since we are focused on your most important day, your Wedding Day, we don't send you "just anywhere". Your destination wedding is the reason you are going away, so we recommend resorts that we know can suit your wedding day and your needs. In some cases, a destination wedding purchased from a full service travel agency may not have your wedding day as their top priority; some details may not even be organized until you meet with the on-site planner at the resort during the destination wedding week. This can leave a lot of unanswered questions and concerns up in the air until you arrive at destination.
Besides providing travel arrangements for the bride and groom and their group and assisting in the selection of resort choices, Wedding Butlers will create a personalized Wedding Website, custom e-invites and send out updates to the bride and groom’s group.
To create the ultimate destination wedding Wedding Butlers will provide their recommendations in resorts and wedding packages to choose from. We are in constant connection with the on-site planner to explain and follow through with the bride and groom's preferences to create their perfect wedding. Wedding Butlers also create unique personalized experiences at your destination wedding by organizing activities like "Ladies Spa Parties" or "Private Sunset Catamaran Cruise".
Your Wedding Day is our top priority. Each bride and groom will have unlimited consultations to create their dream day. We will assist in the selection of venues, locations, themes, meal choices, photography choices, flower selection and more. Anything "wedding related" we are part of it!
We even will attend your destination wedding*. We are there to oversee all the on-site arrangements from start to finish. Making sure your Wedding Day goes exactly as planned.
Wedding Butlers provides additional information and details regarding your destination wedding that most generic travel agents cannot or would not know to. A bride and groom's Wedding Day means everything to us. Wedding Butlers are part of every planning aspect to the destination wedding.
If you are thinking of a destination wedding or have questions about a destination wedding please contact us. We are here to help and would love an opportunity to assist you in any way possible. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
