8 Essential Planning Tips for a Successful Destination Wedding

If you are thinking of doing a destination wedding in the Caribbean Islands, DON'T book anything until you have read my free report FIRST!

I‘m on a mission to make sure you NEVER have to settle for what you want in your destination wedding, honeymoon, or bucket list adventure.  

Hello, I’m Denise,

Since 2010, I’ve helped countless clients bring their wedding, honeymoon, & bucket list vacation a reality.  

As I worked with most of these couples I started to notice that many of these couples had a great vision of what they wanted, but they didn’t know where to start, or how to make it happen! 

When these couples came to me for help, they were on the verge of settling for “good enough.” 

Unfortunately, “good enough” opens the door to having a disappointing wedding, honeymoon, or bucket list trip! 

After all, this is your wedding, honeymoon, or a milestone trip, as well as, a large investment of your time and money.

Denise Bonds and her team made sure all of the guests were aware of our activities and excursions as well as the schedule for the ceremony and reception. The décor, food Entertainment, Band and DJ was all on point. My new husband and guests really had an amazing time and the weekend was more than I expected. Thank you Denise and Patty."
