How do we know if a Destination Wedding is right for us?
Do you love to travel? Do you value experiences? Do you love food from around the world? Would you like to experience all of the above with your partner, nearest and dearest? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a destination wedding is right for you!
Do we need a Wedding Planner for a Destination Wedding?
Definitely, yes! Do not take any chances on this special occasion! Once you’ve booked your venue, we match you with top planning and production teams in the destination you choose for the big day.
How far in advance do we need to plan our Destination Wedding?
We recommend between 6 (for smaller celebrations) to 18 (for larger celebrations) months in advance when planning a destination wedding. However, we can accommodate any and all schedules and time frames!
Does Wedaways plan my Wedding?
No. Wedaways is a service which provides you access to world-class luxury properties, planners, production teams, and travel advisors for your destination wedding and honeymoon. When you are matched to a planner, you pay for their services to plan, design and produce the big day and all other celebrations.
Can my Property plan the Wedding?
It depends. Many properties in our portfolio have special event coordinators on staff. Wedding planning may not be their specific area of expertise, which is why we have a network of wedding planning and production professionals in your destination location. With Wedaways, we will match you to an expert planner in your property’s region who will work with the property event coordinators to ensure your celebration is perfect!
How do we know our payments are secure?
We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) system, which is the gold standard in e-commerce and online payment security worldwide
Do accounts expire?
Wedaways accounts expire six months post wedding celebration. If you would like to extend your account, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Can my friends use my Wedaways account for their weddings?
No. An account is designated to one couple only and expires 6 months after your wedding celebration. Each one of our couples is special, and with an account of their own, your friends will enjoy the same wonderful experience we provide to you.
What’s the benefit in using Wedaways versus planning my own Destination Wedding/Honeymoon?
Wedaways is an invitation-only network of international partnerships: Properties, travel professionals and wedding planners, all here to assist you from start to finish. You can connect with all of the above through one portal: Your dashboard. We’ve done the work for you.
We have heard that getting married in a foreign country can be really complicated. Is this true?
It can be. Often, couples opt for Symbolic or Blessing ceremonies to avoid complication. Not to worry however, Wedaways wedding planning professionals are here to help you through the entire process, no matter which option you choose! You can check the laws pertaining to your destination here.
Do Wedaways Properties offer Wedding Packages?
What is your vetting process for Properties and Wedding Planners?
The Wedaways team visits each property and personally interviews each wedding planner that is invited to become an in-network provider. The properties and planners that instill the greatest confidence, and offer the finest and most diverse selection and creativity, are invited to become Wedaways Property or Planner Members.
If we cannot find the perfect venue in your current collection, can you provide us with additional suggestions?
With pleasure! Wedaways is in a continuous process of searching, vetting, and inviting properties to join our prestigious portfolio.
