You’ve said “I do” to a destination wedding down south! That’s terrific! Now what? Where should you get married? What should you wear? Should you have a mariachi band? All great questions! Here, we break down who can help you plan what for your big day!

Step 1: Your travel agent

From helping you choose your destination and resort to booking your trip, this is where your wedding plans start to take shape. Your travel agent can…

♥ Recommend destinations and resorts for your wedding

♥ Check wedding date availabilities

♥ Book your trip — plane seats and resort rooms for you and your guests (you can refer your guests directly to the agent for their payment)

♥ Tell you about our wonderful Transat wedding advantages

♥ Inform you about extra perks available for your guests on board

♥ Recommend and book group excursions

♥ Put you in touch with the resort wedding coordinator

Step 2: Your resort wedding coordinator

The date is set! The resort is booked! Now’s the time to personalize your wedding! From flowers to the menu and music, the resort wedding coordinator can help you find the perfect match for your nuptials. This person can help you…

♥ Find the perfect setting for your wedding on the resort

♥ Choose the menu

♥ Pick the flowers

♥ Find a photographer

♥ Shower your guests with special surprises upon arrival

♥ Find the perfect DJ and music

♥ Realize any whimsical ideas you may have

Step 3: For you

For Her: Maid of honour

And let’s not forget the maid of honour!

Who else will…

♥ Go shopping with the bride for the perfect wedding dress

♥ Help with the crafts — handwrite invitation envelopes, wrap favours

♥ Be at the bride’s beck and call on the wedding day. Flip-flops, bouquet holder, trip to the washroom: maid of honour, you’re it!

♥ Keep the bride cool under the sun (think damp towels and refreshing cocktails)

 For Him: Best man

You can’t have a maid of honour without a best man. He will…

♥ Help the groom choose the suavest suits

♥ Make sure the groom has the marriage licence with him

♥ Find a safe place for the ring until the ceremony

♥ Give the first toast at the reception and act as the master of ceremonies
