Resort: Now Larimar
Travel Consultant: Hannah
What made you decide on having a destination wedding?
I've always wanted to get married on the beach and it seemed less stressful than an in town wedding.
What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue?
We had never even thought about going to the Dominican Republic, but when Hannah mentioned it was known for its white sandy beaches and clear water we knew it would be perfect.
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
Not being able to physically see what we would be getting and what the venue looked like, and having to do do it all through emails or phone calls.
What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise?
The Zoetry Hotel (where we spent our honeymoon) was by far the highlight (besides the wedding of course :-) ) and the biggest surprise was that all of our guests ended up getting upgraded to a preferred room!
How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with?
We dealt with Mercy, and sometimes it took awhile to get a timely response on our emails and not all our questions would get answered, but once we got to the resort everything was taken care of and she went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly!
If your best friend was planning a destination wedding, what would be your advice to her?
Definitely go through a travel agency that specializes in destination weddings so they know which resort will be best for weddings and the honeymoon!
Was there anything that you would change, looking back?
Absolutely not, it was awesome!!
Thanks again for everything!
