Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 31, 2015 -- The destination wedding team at AskMeInc has revealed their top five destination wedding packages for 2015.

“We are constantly speaking with couples, travel agents, hotels, photographers and other wedding professionals,” said Hilary Lanzer, Managing Partner of AskMeInc, "They all report similar findings: couples want value without sacrificing quality or experience.

The top five wedding packages for 2015 reflect both these trends – value and steady bookings regardless of the time of year.”
