Together We Create Lasting Memories
Some people specialize in wedding planning and others specialize in travel planning. I do both! I own my travel agency and worked for years as an event/ wedding planner. I’m a destination wedding specialist offering full-service coordination and onsite event management. I’ve escorted dozens of wedding parties to Mexico, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic – all over the Caribbean!
When I plan a group wedding, my brides- and grooms-to-be appreciate that I package and price the trip in a way that’s simple for all of their guests to say “yes” to. We tend to get larger-sized weddings of 40 to 80 people who want to join the celebration because I make it easy and affordable for many people to book the package. The way I advertise and promote their “Big Day” is simple to implement – a true turnkey solution for my clients. Banish the pre-wedding jitters and let me assist with your stress-free destination wedding!
Our 3 Tiered Customized Approach
All of the details of your wedding are handled through unlimited guidance to help you paint the picture of your dream wedding. Then we take care of executing all the details in advance so no stone is left unturned. Our purpose is to ensure you and your guests are prepared in every way possible, relieving stress and ensuring you have a hassle free, dream come true wedding!
I will make recommendations to you based on my experience for any and all selections that need to be made. But ultimately, this is your special event and the final decisions will always come from you. Please remember that your on-site coordinator works for the resort, I WORK FOR YOU!!
Consultation and Travel planning
We discover your wants and needs and discuss resort and destination options for you and your guests. I work with you to ensure all deadlines are met and Travel arrangements are pre arranged.
Work with consulate, religious or civil officiant and resort wedding coordinator to complete the numerous legal and religious paperwork (includes Translation Service)
Negotiate amazing packages
I use my franchise buying power to secure the best possible rates with resorts and secure contracts.
Assist with pre-wedding local details
Guest favors, wedding programs, bridal registry, and
other services you may require.
Meet with bride/groom monthly either via conference call or in person in your home to review timeline and provide status of tasks completed and in progress.
Liaise with on-site coordinator
I will formally communicate all your wishes, questions, comments, concerns and keep you informed and well advised
Communication is encouraged. You are never a bother and I will never make you feel that way. The months before your wedding can be the most stressful time, if you let it… I won’t let you let it. I do not keep set business hours. As the owner of Vacations By Stacy, I am available to you at all times. You will be given my business line and cell phone number and are encouraged to call me anytime.
We customize a full travel package with various options for your guests and communicate all details on a website we create to make it simple and convenient for your guests to learn and join the festivities. You can sleep well knowing that I manage all travel planning needs for you and your wedding guests. I negotiate the best rates and ensure all aspects of your travel are on schedule and stress free! I will be a single point of contact for each of your guests planning their vacation packages and will handle all special requests and dietary concerns.
Travel Package Includes:
Airfare from hometown to resort destination
Transportation to and from airport and resort at selected destination (Group Travel Insurance for each guest)
Additional amenities or excursions can be included as part of the package and guests can customize package if they wish to increase their stay
I will contact all wedding guests with information about available travel packages and work with each guest to book their air/hotel and any additional excursions. Each guest will then receive a hard copy of their individual travel plans to bring with them.
Please note: Group travel rates can be secured if we meet minimum requirements from individual cities for the same length of stay.
We don’t expect you to cater to your guests every need while they are on property. This is your big event-enjoy your friends and family and we take care of all the on-location details and your guest. It’s as if you brought a concierge team with you to ensure everyone has a flawless experience at your wedding!
Too ensure the best possible destination wedding I arrive early to inspect the resort, finalize itineraries, rehearsals, parties and guest activities. I also meet with your on site coordinator and vendors such as deejay’s and florists to finalize all details in person.
What you can expect!

I always arrive early to ensure the resort has all the pieces in place for the wedding party’s arrival. I will also develop the itinerary for wedding guests for the duration of their stay.

We can’t thank you enough for all you did to make our destination wedding at Dreams – Punta Cana such an amazing success! You not only helped us choose a destination, but also arranged travel for our guests and helped us plan all of the group and wedding activities.

All of our guests were happy and the wedding was everything we dreamed of – and more! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We could never have done this without you!
