Becoming a Destination Planner

If you love to travel, this could be an amazing way to see the world and get paid while you work.  I have done some destination weddings and for me, our company structure, and the client load we typically have, it didn't work well for me.  Don't get me wrong, we loved the travel, we got paid well and it was a great experience.  However, our local clients required more of my time at our base office. Had I created a different structure in the beginning I could probably take more destination weddings.

The best way to start this type of service, I would recommend focusing on a certain area 1st.  Pick a location or top 3 you may want to serve.  You could for example choose Yosemite or Hawaii or the place of your choice.  Then figure out the cost of travel for you and any staff you may need. You should for sure need to travel at least 1 time prior to the wedding to set up all the details.  Then incorporate this into your planning fee. 

If you can afford it, travel there and take photos to use for advertising and marketing.  Once you put your package together, start adverting for these areas. 

This will allow you to begin your destination planning services then as you grow branch out to other areas.  Then as you gain more experience, you will have a better understanding of what it takes to plan a destination wedding, you will gain more clients.
