From Yes I will marry you to I do – Be Live Hotels

first_imgWritten By: Be Live Hotels  Let’s picture the following scenario: “The ring has been crafted and bought. He’s nervous, anxious and trying to keep himself together for everything to work out perfect that night. You had no clue that he was going to propose and yet, you are hoping he does. After an exciting evening, he proposes and you say: Yes. You are engaged. Congratulations!!! Now, it is time to define what kind of wedding you will have. He’s got his own ideas; you’ve got yours too. By the time you start quoting the wedding services to have a local wedding and get all the people you’d like to join you in that very special day, you start to see that it is going to be a marathon towards getting all the money you need to have your dream wedding come true. Then someone comes at a bridal show and suggests you to have a Destination Wedding in Dominican Republic. Your head starts to spin… -if it is already expensive to have a local wedding, are we going now to spend that amount of money plus travel into a different country to get married?- you think, and your immediate answer is: No.” As a Travel Agent, this is exactly what you need to realize that most people don’t. Selling a Destination Wedding should be fairly easy when you show people the benefits of having one instead of trying to make the project happen locally. When making the call for a Destination Wedding, highlight the benefits of having one. Start by asking: What if the Wedding and almost all of the costs associated with getting married were already included in a Wedding Package (flower bouquets, boutonniere, music, floral centerpieces, cocktails and even the Private Wedding Dinner Reception!) and the money you are spending on travel also works towards your Honeymoon? In the Dominican Republic, Be Live Hotels has set up 3 comprehensive Wedding Packages thinking on having a beautiful Wedding Experience in paradise and keeping in mind the economy of the couple whom will be throwing the party for their friends and family. A “Caribbean Wedding Experience”.The “CARIBBEAN WEDDING EXPERIENCE” by Be Live Hotels offers the idyllic set for the event and celebration to take place in. Our Wedding Coordinators at each Be Live Hotel will take care of every single detail, from the very beginning to the end making the entire process work impeccably and effortlessly for your clients. You can rest on their experience, commitment, involvement and professionalism to make sure everything goes right with a touch of unique complicity. Trust our Wedding Coordinators to plan, step by step, every single detail from flower bouquets and arrangements, to the perfect ambiance in an intimate atmosphere during the already built-in the Wedding Package and guaranteed: Private Wedding Dinner Reception. The Wedding Packages.At Be Live Hotels we are true believers that the most special day in a couples’ life should be immersed in shine, dazzle and be more than inspiring… It is because of the before mentioned and because we know the amount of details that surround the wedding date, that we have crafted 3 different Wedding Packages based on the amount of people attending to the wedding and the different levels of elegance the couple would like to imprint to their event. Be Live Hotels has realized that many of the offers out there for a Destination Wedding, are always lacking of one HUGE factor: Privacy and Intimacy. This is why all of our Wedding Packages have already the Private Wedding Dinner Reception already built into the price. From our basic package called: “Caribbean Romance1” which could be free of charge if the couple gets at least 5 rooms for a minimum stay of 3 nights each, passing through our intermediate Package named: “Caribbean Forever Idyll2” in which you can enjoy some touches of elegance like the rose petal turndown service on the wedding night or the newlywed’s romantic breakfast with mimosas in bed on the morning after. And all the way up to our most lavish proposal to tie-the-knot: “Caribbean Dream Deluxe3” that offers from a guaranteed upgrade to the rooms of Bride, Groom and both their parents to an hour of Live Caribbean music trio for one hour during the cocktail reception and an International Open Bar service after the Reception Dinner for two hours. “Creative thinking, Unforgettable Memories”At Be Live Hotels, we pride ourselves of having recently developed a new ethos that strives on the motto of: “Creative thinking, Unforgettable Memories”. We strongly believe that exclusivity and a five-star service ensures that the most important day of your clients’ life will become a truly unforgettable moment. For this reason, we offer Exclusive and Private Areas to celebrate the Wedding Dinner Reception along with our team of professionals who will be dedicated exclusively to our mutual clients and their guests in order to deliver a personalized, magical and intimate atmosphere. Within this new initiative, we know that the Wedding Menu can be an essential factor to a successful event and at Be Live Hotels, our team will work close with the bride to create a customized menu to top off the occasion. Whether if it is a 5-star Wedding Menu what is needed or a simple yet luxurious buffet, our award winning menus and specialized chefs will have the wedding party saying: “I Do”. Discover our Destinations, enjoy our Hotels & Resorts.Be Live Hotels has 4 different hotels and Resorts in Dominican Republic.
