Planning a wedding can be hard, especially when you are planning a destination wedding in the Caribbean or anywhere other than your hometown. Things like scouting out venues, buying decor, finding a caterer can be nearly impossible to do from afar. In St. Croix, as well as many other remote island destination wedding locations many, if not most businesses do not have websites. Many island destinations still believe in face to face interactions and phone calls. After all, we live on an island, we don't want to be inside managing websites, we want to be outside soaking up the sun. In our tech crazy, fast paced world though, most people depend on a businesses website to provide the much needed information to us rather than picking up a phone or stopping in to ask questions. Looking to plan a destination wedding? Well, most likely you are not in that destination where you can stop in and talk to your vendors. And Making phone calls? Well that can be tough too - you have to account for language barriers, time differences, cultural differences, etc.
The above is just a quick snapshot of what it takes to plan a destination wedding. There is so much more that goes into it but why should you worry about that? You shouldn't!

If you are lucky enough to find a planner that also doubles as a designer like we do at Memorable Dreams Events, you literally can do NOTHING except showing up!
