When a couple decides that they want to exchange their vows and celebrate their love in a dream location that they and their guests will have to travel to, then they have decided on a destination wedding.
Destination weddings often take place in tropical areas such as the Caribbean, Mexico, The Bahamas or Hawaii. Others decide to celebrate their wedding in Europe, South America, South Pacific or even stateside at many upscale and metropolitan destinations. The entire wedding party will travel to the destination and enjoy a long weekend, an entire week, or in some cases an even longer stay. The wedding party will be on vacation while attending the wedding.
In recent years, destination weddings have seen significant growth due to their typically lower cost than a traditional wedding. Destination weddings also serve as a great solution for couples who are from different geographical areas. With a destination wedding, everyone travels to the same beautiful location instead of choosing one hometown or the other.
How can we help?
The Travel Junkie, LLC offers a full-service approach to your destination wedding. Our goal is to make the planning and coordination of your big day as simple and stress-free as possible.
Destination weddings are different from typical weddings and honeymoons, and therefore require the planning of an experienced travel agent, along with a little event planning thrown in. This special mix results in our Certified Destination Wedding Specialists. We are with couples from the beginning stages of picking out a destination, to welcoming you home as husband and wife.
Some couples already have their perfect location in mind and others don't know where to start. We work with virtually every resort available. From finding the location, walking you through the legal requirements and documentation, planning travel for you and your guests, confirming itineraries, support during your travel and making sure everything goes off without a hitch to following up upon your return, we are with you every step of the way.
So, what does it cost to have a Destination Wedding Specialist arrange your wedding with you?
That's the best part, our services are free to you and your guests. We are a unique combination of an event planner and a travel agency. We are reimbursed by our suppliers (The Resorts, airlines, etc.), so there are no fees to couples or their guests. Because of our commitment to making your dream Destination Wedding a reality, we simply ask you to commit to making your travel arrangements with us and encourage your family and friends that they do so as well.

We are also happy to offer wedding and honeymoon registration services. If you have family or friends who cannot attend your destination wedding but would still like to give a gift to celebrate your union, then our registry service is a great solution. Our online service allows your friends and family to be a part of your special day. The registry is completely customizable, to your destination, your resort, your “wish list” of extras for your trip. This service allows your family and friends the opportunity to purchase a variety of options from room upgrades, spa treatments, a candlelight dinner on the beach or even something more adventurous like swimming with the dolphins or zip lining. The choices are all yours. In addition to the registry itself, each bride and groom have the opportunity to tell their story, upload pictures, blog about their journey and share it all through their social media. Best of all, we offer this service free to our clients and their families.
