Today is my 8th wedding anniversary. My husband and I have been reminiscing about all the wonderful memories of the day and honestly the not so wonderful… Weddings are stressful. The expectations are high and especially those of event planners.
We had a great wedding and celebrated with those closest to us. However, we both wish we would have hired a day of coordinator. If so, I wouldn’t have been thinking about the timeline, venue set up or have to be the contact for the hotel to ask a million questions. Matt surely wouldn’t of had to have a heated conversation with a vendor just moments before the ceremony that plagues his memory. Moral of this story, hire a day of coordinator. While you’re at it, might as well make it me 😉
We dreamed of an exotic destination wedding but the reality of guest and family logistics made it seem impossible. During our honeymoon, we swore that on our 10-year wedding anniversary we would do a destination vow renewal. So here we are 8 years and 2 kids later, happier than ever and I think it’s time to start finally planning that destination wedding.
I met our travel agent Terese Ternullo with Hibiscus Travel. at a networking event prior to our wedding. We have booked all our travel with her since. She’s always provided amazing customer service and special touches throughout the years. Professionally, she would extend opportunities to me to learn more about the wedding industry when I was still working full time and not quite ready to start my business.
Terese made a lifetime client out of us and we will be working with her to coordinate our destination vow renewal. As timing would have it, she just expanded her travel agency to include designing Meetings and Incentives in the Caribbean and specialty cruises too.
I can think of a pretty special cruise back in 2005.
She say’s “I’m looking for business owners who has thought of, but perhaps has never fulfilled his/her wishes of, taking the entire office/corporation/top performers on a well-deserved retreat or conference. These owners don’t want to waste precious time and energy researching the plethora of options available, and want to avoid overpaying and/or booking something that doesn’t meet their expectations.”
I don’t know about you but I smell a pretty good partnership brewing.
If you are or know of a business owner who dreamed to reward their team or need help executing conference travel, I will be working with Terese to make that happen.
I’m so excited to start planning my STRESS-FREE vow renewal in the Caribbean with Terese and I bet she will be able to help secure a day of coordinator too!
