Real Life Destination Wedding at Secrets Maroma

“Working with Angee and Vacations With Flair was such a great experience! Anything that I had questions about or needed she handled for me! It really took the weight off of my shoulders when having to plan a destination wedding! She was able to answer all my questions and if she wasn’t sure she was prompt in finding out the answer for me! I really feel that not only is she amazing at helping plan a destination wedding but any travel arrangements! I will definitely use her for my travel in the future!!! She was so great to work with and I feel like I gained a wonderful friendship with her!”

The Process

My first call with Melissa and Eddy was about a year before their wedding date.  They had tons of awesome ideas.  But also lots of questions.  It had gotten a little overwhelming.

On their wish list was an amazing beach and reasonable prices for their guests.  Most importantly, they wanted a destination that was memorable and unique.

I got to work and found the perfect options to present Eddy & Melissa.     These were extremely personalized recommendations, as I used their “wish list” as the criteria.

Their Destination Wedding Resort

They chose Secrets Maroma in Riviera Maya!

Secrets Maroma is tucked away on one of the most pristine and famous beaches in all of Mexico. It was the perfect setting for their beach ceremony.  Guests were excited to travel to this Adult Only All-Inclusive resort.

Amazing Experience

From the beginning I could tell that Melissa would be a sweet and thoughtful bride. I knew I was right when she told me she had special gift bags prepared for her out of town guests as a welcome treat as they arrived to Mexico. She had them filled with snacks, goodies and sunscreen. Such a great idea to welcome your friends and family to your destination wedding, don’t you think?

She does, however, come with a cautionary tale. For the groomsmen she had purchased a fun thank you gift.   Gun shaped lighters.  As she was going through customs in Mexico, the toys set the scanners off.  Her luggage was searched… thoroughly.  Even though she was able to prove that these were fake guns, officials confiscated her gifts.

As she told me the story, Melissa was laughing and said “Oh Well”.  This, in a nutshell, describes why I loved working with this couple. They kept their sense of humor above all and didn’t sweat the small stuff.

Melissa and Eddy, I wish you years of love and happiness together.
