    Quality service!

    Wendy is so thoughtful and meticulous in her work! Unlike all the others planners I approached, Wendy didn’t say yes to all my requests until she knew she could commit. She was proactive and reached out to the vendors she has worked with previously to see if they could accommodate my religious and cultural requirements. Wendy is extremely personable while remaining very professional, and not to mention flexible. Her communication skills is superb, which is key for anyone planning a destination wedding. I’d definitely recommend her!!

    Destination Dream Weddings's reply:

    Dearest Mushfika,

    Best Wishes always to you and Enayat.

Wendy Wharton
Owner/Planner - Destination Dream Weddings

Hi,

I am a planner that has her certification, with honours at Association of Bridal Consultants.

I opened Destination Dream Wedddings in 2016 under the name Dominican Dream Weddings.

After doing weddings in Dominican Republic we decided to open a License in both the Riviera Maya in Mexicio and The Canadian Rocky Mountains.

I love what we do, which is offering our Client's an option away from the all -inclusive, cookie cutter options available for Destination Weddings.

We have worked In huge and luxurious Villa's to Sea-Side romantic Restaurants. We have done spectacular weddings and events in vast gardens and both public and private beaches.

I look forward to hearing of your plans and seeing how we can help you.
