How would you describe your wedding design, planning, and coordination style at DWD Travel & Destination Weddings?

My destination wedding planning style is all in! I work with wedding couples and onsite resort coordinators to make a very stressful process more seamless. Working with a resort in another country can be scary. However, by having me on their side taking care of all the details, wedding couples can feel more confident in the process and outcome.

What type of couples do you love working with at DWD Travel & Destination Weddings?

As a Mexico and The Caribbean destination wedding planner, my favorite couples are those who have no idea what they want other than location (beach vs. garden). It is so fun to figure out what they really want when they think they don't know.

Your business is GROWING this year! What fun and exciting things are you hoping to do/accomplish?

This year, I've already hired an assistant and exceeded some big sales goals. I hope to dive more into the Planner's Playbook, create a better marketing plan, and book more weddings, of course!

What's your favorite part of working with your clients on the planning, design, and/or coordination of their wedding?

I really love helping my clients figure out what they actually want and bringing it to life! A lot of times, couples don't know how to express what they want. Therefore, it's a joy to show them through inspiration boards and of course, the final outcome.

Here's what Dana Lewis has to say about The Planner's Playbook…

As a member of The Planner's Playbook, having a place to go for resources has been invaluable. I'm a bit of a unicorn in the travel industry. I not only plan the travel for destination weddings but also do the wedding planning. Having a place I can go for that wedding community is such a game-changer.

I'm a sucker for templates, and the Playbooks deliver! There are so many to help me better run my business. If you're looking for resources to help your business along with a community, this is the place to be!
