We specialize in making your day unique, designing everlasting moments, creating fond memories that you

stressful a destination wedding can be having personally gone through the experience! Because we have
been there, we can share our knowledge and use our resources to ensure you have a relaxing, fulfilling,
stress-free destination wedding!
The most important decision you can make is choosing the right Destination
Beach Bum Vacation Tip #1
Booking with Beach Bum Vacation can and will save you and your guests HUNDREDS of dollars! Beach Bum
Vacation has developed relationships with numerous resorts and tour operators to obtain the best pricing
available! Going directly to the resort and negotiating rates on your own is not as great as it may seem.
Oftentimes, signing a contract for group rates will only end in heart break if the resort runs a sale or
updates pricing, because you will be locked into the contract pricing with no adjustment capability.
Beach Bum Vacation Tip #2
Book all your guests in one place! It will alleviate your stress and keep your wedding group organized!
Nothing is worse than having 30 guests book in 15 different places. The resort or onsite wedding coordinator
has no way of knowing if they are with your group and if something goes wrong, there will be nothing you can
do to help! By using Beach Bum Vacation, you and your guests will have a "one stop" shop to call in case
issues with their travel arise or they want to make changes quickly and easily. We personalize EVERY trip
for each guest! And, we send our guest list to the resort prior to your arrival to make them aware you are
coming as a group with any special requests they may have.
Beach Bum Vacation Tip #3
Relax and allow Beach Bum Vacation do the work! From researching your perfect location to finding updated
airfare information to being your stateside coordinator to arranging transfers to and from the airport, do
not do it on your own! There are too many problems that can arise without proper support behind you! Our
years of personal experience coupled with our relationship with onsite resort staff are invaluable when you
have urgent questions or have special requests! Sometimes, resorts are slow to respond to brides or problems
with hotels being oversold, forcing guests to change properties last minute are just a couple of examples of
issues that may occur. But, no worries with Beach Bum Vacation as we push the envelope and use our resources,
think outside the box and get the answers you need, solve your problems and use our contacts to keep things
stress-free and organized!
I have been conducting this email in my head for weeks and realized, not only have I never typed it, I have not yet told you what a spectacular time we had at our wedding!!!! We are getting our photo thank you cards hopefully soon and will be sending a more formal thank you in the mail.
First, let me start by saying that Beach Bum was the best thing we did for our wedding. You made the planning process, trip booking and communication with our families and friends so easy. I can't tell you how many people were not only wow-ed at Beach Bum's service, but at how friendly you were and easy to reach (or easy to reach another colleague when you were away). You were so up front with your schedule and it made planning a breeze.
The resort was amazing! I think most of us get a little nervous about the unknown, and then to add "wedding bliss" (or stress) on top of traveling, I am sure you deal with your fair share of -- OMG What if... but Beaches was exquisite - beautiful - romantic (unexpectedly, yes!) - just stunning. We had the best time. I wish we could have stayed longer or transferred to a Sandals, but it only gives us reasons to return.
The service for the wedding was awesome. The wedding planner on site, Simone was so friendly and calming, the facilities were really beautiful. We had a great time finalizing all the details and Simone made it really easy. I only have a few critiques for Beaches, but nothing for Beach Bum, except that you did an awesome job.
I wish I had your career! Travel, weddings, being part of making people's most memorable experiences... how can it get in on it?!?! :-)
Hayley, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you! If you are ever in need of a referral or have another bride that wants to know every detail / see photos, anything, I am happy to be of any assistance.
All our best!
