Group Destination wedding packages typically come with essentials such as the ceremony venue with simple décor, chairs for your guests, a champagne toast, wedding cake and music. Upgraded packages could include amenities for the wedding couple like massages, room upgrades or breakfast in bed the morning after the ceremony.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about destination wedding locations?
Carlie: If you are booking more than 5 rooms we highly suggest to book a room BLOCK in order to maximize your savings and reduce your stress. Blocking rooms for your wedding will allow all your guests to be booked at the same resort. When all your guest are booked under your Destination Wedding Group Agreement our relations with Preferred Partner Hotels will reduce the chance of anyone being moved to another hotel in the unlikely event that resort becomes overbooked. Room Block allows you to lock in room rates ahead of time and guarantee the room availability to ensure the prices don’t increase or the property doesn’t run of inventory for your guests. Room Block you get extra savings such as added amenities, private events and more more.
