destination wedding resort recommendations

Planning a destination wedding isn’t just about picking a beautiful spot; it’s about creating unforgettable experiences. As a travel agent specializing in destination weddings, you’re the mastermind behind the scenes.

In this post, we’ll dive into the process of presenting top-notch destination wedding options that align perfectly with your client’s dreams.

Destination Wedding Resort Recommendations Tips

🌟 Understand the Vision

First things first, dig into your consultation notes. There are two crucial parts:

  1. Wedding Vision: What kind of ceremony and reception are they dreaming of?
  2. Vacation Experience: What do they want from their overall trip?

(If you’re part of my 20K System & Toolkit Destination Wedding Business Course, we have the consultation questionnaires in the download section.)

Summarize their desires and match them to the perfect venue. This means knowing the ins and outs of different brands, resorts, and wedding packages.

🌟 Kick Off with a Summary

Start your quote with a bang! Begin with a summary statement explaining why you think the recommended venue is the ideal match. Highlight the key points that align with what they’ve told you. Every couple is different, so make it personal.

🌟 Highlights of the Resort & Hosting a Wedding

List the standout features of the resort as well as the highlights of having a wedding there, like the fact that they only do one wedding per day, or that their back-up location in case of weather is gorgeous. Once you’ve created this list, save it for future use—it’s a time-saver!

🌟 Showcase Real Weddings

Find videos and photos of actual weddings held at the venue. Point out elements your clients will love, like the ceremony setting, reception décor, and more. Pro tip: Use images from professional photographers or videographers, not from direct competitors.

🌟 Budget-Friendly Details

Provide a ballpark figure for guests’ costs to ensure it fits their budget. Usually, this means getting a quote for a room for two adults. You don’t need to get a group quote to present a destination wedding recommendation to a client.

🌟 Highlight Group Benefits

Let them know the perks of hosting their wedding at this resort, such as free rooms, upgrades, and other bonuses. What’s in it for them is a big selling point!

🌟 Get Wedding Package Info

If you don’t have the wedding package details, reach out to the resort’s wedding team. Let them know you’re recommending the resort and need specifics on packages and booking wedding dates and times.

P.S. You can find the wedding recommendations template in the download section of the 20K System & Toolkit course.

The Bottom Line

By following this process, you’ll give your destination wedding clients planning a resort wedding all the info they need to decide if your recommendation is a match made in heaven. Encourage them to review everything carefully and share their likes and dislikes. This way, you can fine-tune your suggestions to perfection. Happy planning!
