Love is in the air this month, and at Starlight2Travel, we've been swept away by the enchanting encounters with many newly engaged couples. We love working with couples starting at this exciting time in their lives—getting married!—and making this connection last for a lifetime as they have many adventures together to come, too.


Recently, we had the pleasure of making some new connections at a lovely boutique bridal show hosted by PMA Shows at St. Noel's in Mentor. The event was a celebration of romance, dreams, and the promise of a shared future. Adding a touch of magic to the occasion, we were joined by the our top romance travel partners, Sandals Resorts, making the journey towards dream honeymoons and destination weddings even more extraordinary. Our team engaged in heartfelt conversations, delving into the unique love stories of each couple.





In this blog post, we are excited to honeymoon and destination planning insights, tips, and memorable moments as we've shared with the couples we've had the pleasure of meeting.

Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Planning Top Three Questions Couples Ask


At Starlight2Travel, we understand that each couple's honeymoon and destination wedding are not just events; they are expressions of their unique love stories. Our dedicated team of travel experts at Starlight2Travel has been working hand-in-hand with couples to answer their top questions to help create unforgettable travel experiences. Here are some of the top questions couples have when they first meet with us...


Where should we go? Choosing the perfect destination is a personal journey reflecting your unique travel preferences. While well-meaning advice from friends and family is valuable, we understand the importance of tailoring recommendations to your specific desires. At Starlight2Travel, we guide couples through a thoughtful process, considering factors like travel requirements, season, dates, preferences, and budget. Our aim is to ensure your destination aligns seamlessly with your dreams and needs.


How does planning work? What's it like working with an agent? Our collaborative approach to travel planning is designed to make your journey stress-free and dreamy. We work closely with you, the travelers, and key decision-makers to research destinations and properties. From creating personalized travel packages to guiding you through the details of creating a travel plan—including all components and payment options—we're here every step of the way. We assist couples in setting up a honeymoon registry, allowing guests to contribute to your trip as a memorable wedding gift.


When it comes to destination weddings, our commitment extends even further. We coordinate every detail of the event, manage room blocks, handle guest reservations to alleviate any concerns, and ensure a seamless experience for both the couple and their guests. Our goal is to let you focus on the significant aspects of your big day, such as finding the perfect wedding dress and choosing the ideal colors and décor, while we take care of the travel logistics with expertise and precision. Essentially, all you need to do is pack and travel confidently, leaving the rest to us.

Why choose a destination wedding? This is one of our favorite questions and it's a long answer! Trust us when we say we're passionate and experienced in coordinating destination wedding travel packages!


  1. Quality Time with Guests: One of the standout benefits of a destination wedding is the quality time you get to spend with your loved ones. Unlike traditional weddings where the day can be a whirlwind, destination weddings offer a more relaxed atmosphere, allowing you to truly connect with your guests.

  2. Creating Unforgettable Memories: Destination weddings provide the opportunity to exchange vows against breathtaking backdrops, creating a picturesque and memorable setting for your special day. The unique environment adds an extra layer of magic to your wedding, making it a story to be cherished for a lifetime.

  3. Cost-Efficiency: Contrary to common belief, destination weddings can often be more cost-efficient than traditional weddings. With inclusive packages and the ability to tailor your event to fit your budget, you have more control over expenses while still enjoying a luxurious experience.

  4. Extravagance for the Price: Destination weddings allow you to achieve an extravagant feel for a fraction of the cost. Resorts often offer comprehensive packages, covering everything from décor to catering, making it easier to plan a lavish event without breaking the bank.

  5. Extended Celebration: A destination wedding extends beyond the ceremony. Enjoy the luxury of extra days to unwind after the celebration, whether you choose to continue the festivities with intimate gatherings or embark on a honeymoon adventure with your newlywed partner.

  6. Guests' Perspective: Your destination wedding doubles as a vacation for your guests. It's not just about attending a wedding; it's an experience they'll remember fondly. Plus, it provides an opportunity for friends and family to bond in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.

  7. Efficient Planning: With the assistance of experienced destination wedding planners, the planning process becomes streamlined and stress-free. We handle the logistics, coordinate details, and manage guest reservations, allowing you to focus on the joyous aspects of your wedding.
