She even surprised us by having a limo pick us up from Cancun Airport to take us to the resort! Such a thoughtful and kind touch.

She was a wealth of knowledge who patiently walked us through every step of the process. I had never been to Mexico before... Read More beginning this process, and Diane was so helpful in recommending cities and resorts to consider based on the type of wedding we were planning to have. She helped plan a trip for me and my now husband to tour a handful of the resorts we were considering (highly recommend this if you have enough time). She gave honest opinions and advice based on her extensive experience with resorts in Mexico, and she helped us communicate and negotiate with the resort to make sure that we were getting the best deals and service available. After helping us with every detail, she then worked with our 140 guests who attended (who each had a dozen questions of their own). It was so nice knowing that someone with as much experience as Diane has was helping to guide our guests, and it freed my husband and myself up to plan other aspects of the wedding, rather then fielding all of our guests' questions regarding their travel. Every guest had a great time! There were no issues with airport transfers or rooming problems (there really weren't any issues at all!). I do think there are easier wedding websites to customize and work with when creating your wedding page, but to be fair a few months before our wedding they updated their site, and though I haven't spent much time exploring it, it does seem to be much improved since we built our page a year and a half ago. I highly recommend working with Diane Monk.

I remember clearly how my wife and I tried to cut costs for a wedding planner and wanted to plan our wedding by ourselves. After half day at Starbucks, endless conversations, calculating our budget which is definitely a big chunk of the planning, we were stuck and didn't know... Read More how we would be able to plan our dream wedding with limited time and a budget in mind. It turned out that this was the very best decision we would ever make and we do not regret a single second having spent with our wonderful wedding planner Joan Sandberg who was personally assigned to us. The process of signing up with them is pretty straight forward. You will be assigned a wedding specialist after you put down your personal information, wedding date etc. In order to show Destinationweddings your commitment about being serious of using their services you are asked to pay $50 which will be credited towards your booking later on. Joan called us shortly after we signed up, introduced herself and answered all our questions but most importantly explained us the process of how Destinationweddings will be able to help us choose our dream location and wedding venue. What we found out later on was that our wedding will cost a lot less than a traditional at-home celebration and on top of that we will be celebrating in a beautiful setting. We chose a very high end resort called The Beloved in Cancun, Mexico, about 30 min from the airport located in one of the most beautiful pieces of land we have ever seen. We were simply mesmerized when we got there. After we chose the resort, Joan sent us a link to our personal wedding website (Free of charge) where we were able to share our engagement story and details about our upcoming wedding. Also, we were able to send our "Save The Date" invitations to all of our guests through email which was pretty simple and worked our just perfect. We obviously checked the resort's website as well as other travel websites for booking directly at the resort but Destinationweddings was by far the cheapest option since they have partnerships in place for great discounted prices. On top of that they included free round trip transportation into their offered fair which would have costed us an additional $200 per party. One of the biggest advantages booking through Destionationweddings besides saving on the hotel fair is that you are able to earn quite amazing amenities if you enter a group agreement. Everything from pick up to drop off, wedding preparation, the way we were treated at the resort was truly out of this world. This resort exceeded all our guests expectations as well and people already plan to fly back there one day. Our wedding day was simply off the chart. The ceremony began at 5pm followed by a cocktail hour under beautful palm trees with snacks, drinks and music and after a short break we had our reception followed with dance by the beach. We were so pleased with everyone that helped us make this an unforgettable event. It turned out to be a very long night and by the time we came back to our 2 story casita they had put rose pedals in our room and decorated the room super cozy. Very special thanks to everyone at the Beloved! In short, I am not sure how we would have pulled this off without having Destinationweddings on our side and in particular Joan. It literally was a dream wedding and because of your service we did not spend a fortune. We appreciate everything that was done for us!

Not to mention WE CRASHED 2 OTHER WEDDINGS!! BEST TIME EVER! We were slightly... Read More hesitant about planning a destination wedding because we have never been to one or planned one before. Not to mention it was our OWN wedding. We wanted everything to be perfect. With having a hands-on bride and a see it in person groom, a destination wedding was definitely out of the norm. With both of us being non-traditional and adventurous, we had to try it. Daniel Onley was amazing! He introduced himself from day one and made sure we knew each of our options. He started off by asking where we wanted to go and what we wanted our experience to be like. From there, we narrowed it down to 2 locations...Puerto Rico or Punta Cana. From the very beginning, Daniel suggested Punta Cana. After going through all of the incentives that Punta Cana had to offer, we were sold and the planning began. Daniel outlined everything from the cost to the number of night needed even down to the transportation and assistance while we were there. He never left one stone unturned. The process was smooth. Even when the Bride was stressed with trying to get people to pay timely to waiting to the last minute to submit airline information, Daniel kept us cool. He reassured us at every moment that we would be fine and that the day would be beautiful. When we arrived to Hard Rock on August 24, 2016, we received an email from Daniel making sure that we had everything that we needed and that everything went smoothly. We wanted so badly for him to come because we felt that he was a part of the wedding party after all of the communication we had with him. Nothing went wrong the time we were there. Our day-August 27, 2016- was PERFECT. It rained the entire week we were there but on the day of the wedding there was not one drop of humidity or rain in the air. We literally stood on the beach and looked back over the hotel and could hear thunder and see lightning but it never came. We were truly blessed. NOTHING went wrong during our wedding. The weather was perfect, music was on time, DJ from JSAV was awesome and the photographer and videographer from HDC were EVERYTHING! We even started 7 minutes early, lol! This made for one happy Bride! We also crashed 2 other wedding receptions that were in the same building as ours. We literally took our whole wedding party into two other wedding receptions and they came to ours. It was CRAZY! Our guests said that this was the best, craziest and most organized wedding ever! We cannot thank DestinationWeddings enough for allowing us to have an amazing and smooth wedding planning experience. The only thing we would change is allowing our planner, Daniel Onley, to come with us so that we could meet and thank him in person for all that he did. We hope to be planning an anniversary trip or just another trip all together outside of the States very soon. If we could plan it through DestinationWeddings, we sure would! There is much more to share, but hands down, Destinationweddings.com should be your go to for all things destination wedding. They are prompt, courteous, caring and so very understanding of all things wedding. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the best wedding ever.
