What Our Clients Are Saying

"Top tier customer service! Sarah went above and beyond to help us through the entire process for our destination wedding in Jamaica! From helping us pick a venue, securing a room block, connecting us with the resort wedding team, helping guests with travel arrangements, answering all of our questions, she was the best!! I would choose her again and again!!!"

Brittney C.Bride

"Perfection. This company went above and beyond to make sure everyone on in our group had an amazing time. The planning process was seamless and I truly felt like I just had to pay and show up. All the heavy lifting was done for me. Sarah had quick answers to any questions or concerns. 10/10 recommend. I can't wait to plan my next vacation with her."

Elena P. Wedding Guest

"Sarah was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her response time is exceptional and she got things done to say the least!! Sarah went above and beyond to help create a seamless destination wedding experience. Sarah organized 46 of my guest travel needs and everyone’s travel experience went very smooth. Not only did Sarah coordinate all of my guest travel needs and hotel rooms she also helped keep in contact with the resort. When the resort was lacking communication with me Sarah got right on it and helped save the day…. More than once. Sarah kept in constant communication throughout our entire destination wedding planning all the way down until every single guest landed in Punta Cana. Whenever I had a question or a problem Sarah was on it and always had a solution! I can’t recommend Sarah enough she was absolutely amazing to work with and is a very knowledgeable and experience traveler. Sarah has been to many resorts and has so much personal knowledge which was extremely helpful when it came to all the questions I had for her. It was very comforting knowing she has actually been and seen in person the resort I was going to, this made me feel confident in my resort decision."

Alesia Y.Bride

“My fiancé and I decided on a destination wedding about six months into our engagement. I had actually reached out to a few people before finding Sarah. I found her because I was on a Facebook wedding page and people were just raving about her! Now that I am working with her I understand why and can’t say enough good things. Sarah has gone ABOVE and beyond for us and there truly is no amount of appreciation to thank her for making our wedding planning a breeze! Even my guests have all good things to say and think she is so sweet! If you are considering a destination wedding or trip, HIRE SARAH. It will be one of the best decisions!"

Cierra S. Bride

“Sarah booked a destination wedding for my son and now daughter in law. It was a large group of 46 people. Everything went so smoothly. The resort, Secrets Cap Cana was beautiful. Sarah was very quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our trip. She emailed us frequently with the steps that needed to be completed before travel. I would highly recommend Sarah at Design Our Travel.”

Tina Y.Wedding Guest

"I just wanted to let you know that we had the most incredible time in Jamaica. Our view was amazing, the resort was stunning, and the staff was so kind the entire time we were there. I could not have asked for a better vacation. Brittney and Andre's wedding was just perfect in every way. She was the most beautiful bride.I have to say, your emails, your organization, and your attention to every single detail was incredibly helpful from the beginning to the end of this trip. So thank you for everything you did to make this trip so successful."

Jessica + Daniel Z.Wedding Guests

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I work with Weddings by Design Our Travel instead of just directly with the resort?

    Couples who opt to directly work with resorts often find themselves struggling, as they're left to navigate every decision independently. If you're new to destination weddings, not only can this lead to overwhelm, but to frustration and that you are having to make decisions without knowing all of the details.

  • How far in advance should I start planning our Destination Wedding?

    We recommend starting the planning process at least 12 to 18 months before your desired wedding date. This allows ample time to secure your preferred venue, accommodations, and vendors, especially for popular destinations and peak seasons.

  • How much does it cost to work with you?

    We offer three destination wedding planning packages so that you can find the best fit for your vision, budget, + level of service you desire. During our complimentary consultation we go into details about each of our package options and their pricing. We also offer a la carte options so that you can truly customize your experience with us.

  • What's the difference between hiring you and hiring a traditional wedding planner?

    It's a rarity in the destination wedding industry to find someone that can offer it all in a one-stop-shop. Hi, it's us! We have been working with destination wedding couples for the resort selection + travel portion of their destination weddings for the past five years. Recently, we saw a need (for several reasons, but one being the lack of communication that sometimes happens when you work solely with a resort wedding team) to include actual destination wedding planning services into our Service Menu for our couples. So, instead of having two different people assist you - one for travel and one for planning - we can offer these services as a package. If you still just want to use our agency for the travel portion, we can do that as well!

  • What sets your agency apart from others in the industry?

    Our wedding team is dedicated to providing personalized attention, expert guidance, and exceptional service throughout the entire wedding planning process. We truly believe in seeing the destinations, resorts, + venues we sell in person. We keep a very preferred list of partners that we have vetted, met in person, and explored their venues. The last thing you want is someone to assist you with one of the most important days in your life that has never done destination weddings and been to the places they are proposing to you.

Whether you are planning for the two of you to elope or have an intimate gathering of close family & friends to really party it up; it is our job to understand you, your desires, and then combine our extensive knowledge of the available destinations and our preferred partners in order to make your dream wedding a reality.

Good news... that just happens to be our specialty.
