Destination Wedding & Honeymoons Travel Agent Group Makes Debut

A new travel agent group called the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA) said will “soft launch” today, Jan. 14, in preparation for a charter membership drive this spring, Feb. 1-April 30. The group seeks to address the growing market for destination weddings and honeymoons.

DWHSA cites a 2012 Destination Weddings Study by XO Group Inc. showing 350,000 destination weddings take place every year (24 percent of all weddings) along with the fact that more than half of those couples say they get outside help planning these trips and 86 percent of them still plan to talk about booking honeymoons after their destination weddings.
