Cruise Planners has partnered with Celebrity Cruises and The Wedding Experience to stage what it calls a first of its kind interactive wedding expo aboard the Celebrity Reflection.
The event will take place March 18 in Port Miami.
“This is the perfect opportunity for couples who are planning their special day to get a taste of what cruise and destinations ceremonies are like, as they are two major wedding styles that are continuously growing in popularity,” said Vicky Garcia, COO and co-owner of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative.

“Cruise Planners travel agents are full-service vacation concierges and can plan any detail for a destination or cruise wedding.”
Destination weddings are typically a choice for second marriages and vow renewals according to Cruise Planners. In recent years, they have increasingly grown in popularity for Millennials, a generation that is passionate about travel and looks for unique and intimate weddings that are also cost effective, it said.
The expo features an interactive itinerary designed to assist guests in planning their upcoming weddings and even honeymoons. From meeting professional wedding planners and beauty experts to viewing décor, wedding invitations and favors, all wedding details are covered in this event. Guests will also learn more about who can legally officiate destination or at sea weddings. All ceremonies are non-denominational but can be customized for any couple.

Cruise Planners provides a wedding certification program for agents to learn more about the complex details involved with planning a destination or wedding at sea.
“Our agents take advantage of this opportunity to become wedding experts through the certification program offered exclusively at Cruise Planners,” Garcia said. “This opportunity allows Cruise Planners agents go above and beyond to ensure each couple enjoys their wedding at sea worry-free.”
