Destination weddings and events are hot, hot, hot! Did you know that 24% of all weddings are destination weddings? Mayesh Wholesale Florist participates in many destination events throughout the year, so much so that we have a program called,Mayesh Destination Events. Be sure to check it out if you are or will be involved with such events, we would love to be your floral partner!
At The Special Event earlier this year in Chicago, I sat in a session all about destination wedding trends given by Jo Anne V. Brown of a Celebrations, a destination management company. Here are some highlights from the program . . .
Top Locations for all types of events:
The Caribbean is ranked the number one destination wedding location.
You are often planning destination weddings probably more than you think
Your mind set has to be slightly different from planning a local wedding and your clients are paying for your expertise
Do your research to find local vendors to save money as this is much cheaper than flying in talent
Destination clients typically spend more money per guest but you need to get more bang for the buck
If you want to break into the destination market, then create a location wish list and work on becoming the expert in those areas.
Destination weddings and events really focus on all of the details – big & small – to make the whole trip an experience for your clients and their guests. Details that you may want to think about:
find out the couples favorite drink and have it waiting for them upon arrival
So now you may know a bit more about destination wedding and events. If you aren’t already, will you be marketing your company to grab this piece of the pie?

I plan on bringing our readers all things flora and fun, mixed with some serious posts about business. I like to think of myself as pretty well-rounded - having passion for design (flowers, web, decor, etc.), marketing, photography, tech, and business. I'm huge believer in continual eduation, so I'm always looking for new ideas and hope to share that journey with you!
