Bride: Tiffany Groom: James Resort: Secrets St. James Agent: Hannah1.What made you decide on having a destination wedding? B&G – We thought that there would be less of a hassle with decisions and planning. This was also a second wedding for the both of us and we had both been through the “traditional” wedding and wanted something more low-key and easier. 2. What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue? B&G – My husband wanted to have a wedding on the beach. I had been to Secrets St. James before and had seen a lot of weddings. I knew that was exactly what I wanted and knew what I would be getting into. 3. What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding? B&G- Honestly, I did not have any problems or difficulties.What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise? 4.What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise? B&G- The highlight of the experience was the beautiful wedding album that Secrets put together from the pictures we selected, and how calm, patient, and understanding the wedding crew was on the day of. The best surprise was all of the “extras” the resort gave us after the wedding. 5. How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with? B&G- The resort staff was amazing. They were all friendly and very helpful and accommodating. Simone was a wonderful coordinator that was always in touch with me or Hannah. Communication was very clear and easy among all of the parties involved. 6.If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her? B&G- Keep it simple. The view of a beach wedding and the sounds of the waves are all you really need in terms of decor. Trust your coordinator here in the States as well as your destination coordinator. Never hesitate to ask a million questions wedding related or even travel related. 7. Was there anything that you would change looking back? B&G-I would have booked everything sooner, but we also got engaged in October and wanted to get married that Summer. You just have more to work with in terms of dates, times, and airfare pricing the earlier you book.
