One of our favorite websites,, is at it again; making the destination wedding world a little easier and breezier to navigate by offering a one-stop shop solution to couples.
After surveying over 3200 couples regarding a myriad of different questions, there were three subjects that consistently came up.
  • Make-up & Hair
  • Destination Wedding Fashions
  • Destination Wedding Favors
These couples confessed that these areas were a point of stress for them. Bud Carmichael, President of heard the pleas and has since begun implementing ways for the company to assist in these areas.
So far, they have put together both a favor site and a fashion site dedicated to destination weddings. Couples can browse through the hundreds of products or discover the gowns perfect for a wedding away.

When determining which designer to go with initially Bud Carmichael had done a Google search on destination wedding dresses. He discovered the Dessy Collection was one of the first to appear, so he gave them a call. “We found that their mindset was similar to ours so we knew it would be a good company to start with.” says Carmichael.
They will be adding more to choose from on both sites, but even now there is a great selection.
Up next for the company? Make-up and hair of course! “We are in the process of beginning regionally. Aveda was the company we’ve decided to go with for several reasons. They are eco-conscious, which is very important to us as an organization. Aveda has locations throughout the world making it easy for our brides to get to no matter where they are. And the line of cosmetics they offer is inline with destination bridal pampering.”

Their overall philosophy when working with brides is, “when one of our brides says, ‘You know what would be helpful?’ everyone at stops working to listen.” says Carmichael.
Bravo again to you for answering the call.
