destination weddings

Planning this all on your own is a lot harder than you thought! 

You’ve said “yes” (woo hoo!). Now you’ve got your heart set on a dreamy destination wedding—some place warm, where the sun sets late, the sand’s powder soft, and there’s salt-scented romance around every corner.

But now that you’ve started diving into the planning, you’ve hit a roadblock or three–or 300. 

Room blocks? Contracts? Packages? Guest count?

The good news: We’re here to keep your destination wedding dream alive—and make the reality more magical than you ever thought possible. DWD takes a unique approach within the industry, designing not only your all-inclusive resort destination wedding event but all the travel arrangements for you and your guests.

Our approach is broken up into 4 phases to help keep your overwhelm and stress in check!  

Think of us as your one-stop-expert-shop for destination weddings done the easy way.

Here’s how it works:

The beauty of a destination wedding (besides you in your wedding day finery, of course!), is that your resort comes with a built-in omg-WOW factor. You could tie the knot with your toes in the sand on the edge of the golden beach, on a swanky rooftop with an ocean vista, in a perfumed garden overflowing with tropical flowers … you get the picture. 

Knowing you want to say “I Do” at a dreamy all-inclusive resort is a no-brainer. But picking the resort?
Well, that’s a little a lot more complicated. 

That’s where we come in. We’re certified destination wedding experts who have walked the walk—meaning, we’ve personally walked through nearly every top resort in Mexico and the Caribbean
(more than 150 resorts, to be exact!).

We know which resorts truly pack in the value. And because we’ve seen them first hand, we can match you to the resort that best fits your vision, vibe, budget, number of guests, and more. 

Let’s pick the resort

We don’t just help you make your destination wedding travel arrangements; we help you plan the wedding event itself (just like a traditional wedding planner would). 

That means: we want to see your Pinterest boards! Yes, share your Big Day vision with us so we can bring it to life in your tropical paradise. We’ll coordinate directly with the resort and vendors to ensure everything from the flowers and decor to DJ and dining feels unique to you. 

Maybe the best thing about a destination wedding is that it doesn’t start and end with “I Do.” We’ll also make sure your destination wedding is a full, multi-day experience. Let us design and coordinate welcome dinners, fun cocktail receptions, and private group excursions so that you can soak up every moment with your guests.

Let’s make the plan

Your guests are traveling from near and far for your Big Day—so let’s show them the best time. And, let’s make sure they’re not pestering YOU with a million of the same questions before you’ve even packed your bags.

We simplify your destination wedding planning by taking care of all your guests’ travel arrangements, including arranging transfers, taking note of special requests, and providing responsive support. You’ll receive a custom wedding website to share with your invitees; just send them here for an easy-peasy booking experience!  

Let’s pamper the guests

Last, but certainly not least, let's wrap everything up with a shiny pink bow and get you down the aisle! You and your guests will receive your final travel documents, we'll make final wedding preparations, and get you ready for the big day! During travel you'll receive help and support from me, if needed, access to chat with me about wedding events, and assistance closing out your group and getting those free comps when you return.

This is where all of those dreams and plans come to life!
Everyone have their passports?

Annie & Rey

DWD Travel created our vision of a celebration of 2 cultures – Czech + Mexican – portrayed through simplistic boho chic, romantic vibes, delicious food + drinks, and dancing. Dana helped us pick a resort that would provide a quality experience leaving guests feeling comfortable + welcomed as if they were at home. The resort was exactly what we wanted, so much so that my husband and I extended our stay by 1 day!

A: The wedding teams at resorts are working with hundreds of clients on a weekly basis. They’re slammed, which means your questions and needs easily fall through the cracks. They also don’t help you book your guests’ travel (that’s just outside the scope of their jobs)—so it’s all left to you. 

By contrast, our team only takes on a select number of clients, to ensure we can give every DWD couple the individualized attention they need. We handle all your guests’ travel arrangements, and we’re often able to get answers from resort wedding teams quicker than you could on your own thanks to our relationships. And of course, if you don’t know WHICH resort you want to work with yet, we help you land on the perfect option! 

Q: Why should I work with DWD instead of just with the resort wedding coordinator? 

Did you have a Q?


A: The sooner the better—especially if you have your heart set on a certain season or even a particular date. 18-24 months out is not too soon to reach out to us!

Q: How far in advance do I need to start planning my destination wedding?

A: We ask for a planning fee just like a traditional wedding planner would. Our planning fee covers our time spent researching your best options, helping bring your wedding vision to life with all the details large and small, booking your guests’ travel, and providing responsive support throughout it all. Our fee allows us to take on a limited roster of clients, giving YOU the time and attention you deserve. 

Q: Why do you charge a planning fee?

A: We get it—this is a big decision! That’s why we want to get to know you—and get all your questions answered—on a complimentary, no-obligation consultation call. Book your complimentary Wedding Planning Session with us to get started to see if we’re the right team to bring your destination wedding dreams to life!

Q: How do I know we would be a good fit?
