Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, has united with Celebrity Cruises and The Wedding Experience to create an interactive wedding expo event on board. This expo is the first of its kind and will take place March 18, 2017, aboard the Celebrity Reflection in PortMiami.
“This is the perfect opportunity for couples who are planning their special day to get a taste of what cruise and destinations ceremonies are like, as they are two major wedding styles that are continuously growing in popularity,” said Vicky Garcia, COO and co-owner of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “Cruise Planners travel agents are full-service vacation concierges and can plan any detail for a destination or cruise wedding.”
Destination weddings are typically a choice for second marriages and vow renewals. In recent years, they have increasingly grown in popularity for millennials – a generation that is passionate about travel and look for unique and intimate weddings that are also cost effective. Guests of all generations are welcome to attend the expo and test the waters by gaining insight on the ship amenities and these ceremony styles from industry professionals. On top of this, guests will have the chance to win prizes throughout the day.
The expo is packed with an interactive itinerary crafted to assist guests in the planning of their upcoming weddings and even honeymoons. From meeting professional wedding planners and beauty experts to viewing décor, wedding invitations and favors, all wedding details are covered in this exclusive event. Guests will also learn more about who can legally officiate destination or at sea weddings. All ceremonies are non-denominational, but can be customized for any couple.
Cruise Planners travel agents are more than just vacation experts – they are also wedding specialists. Cruise Planners provides a wedding certification program for agents to learn more about the intricate details that planning a destination or wedding at sea entails. Certified agents offer superior service for engaged couples, so it’s the best way to book a wedding – on cruise ships or on land.
“Our agents take advantage of this opportunity to become wedding experts through the certification program offered exclusively at Cruise Planners,” Garcia said. “This opportunity allows Cruise Planners agents go above and beyond to ensure each couple enjoys their wedding at sea worry-free.”
