Transat presents the essential tool for planning a dream wedding down south

Montreal, September 20, 2018 – Transat has couples dreaming with its new Weddings brochure. It’s filled with customizable options for lovers seeking an ideal setting for a memorable ceremony, a corner of paradise to renew their vows or a choice destination for a romantic honeymoon.

Packed with useful tips, presented in association with Weddingbells

Wedding couples can always count on Transat when planning their special day. For the third year in a row, the brochure’s 80+ pages include a special section with exclusive content by Weddingbells. In it, readers will find a 12-month countdown for a hassle-free destination wedding, ideas for adding local colour to the celebrations, pointers for snapping memorable pictures and, of course, key fashion and beauty tips.

Plus, Transat makes finding the perfect place to walk down the aisle a breeze. The brochure lists more than 230 hotels from top chains, with the specifics on what’s included in hotel and wedding packages. Couples can choose from 26 destinations, such as Mexico, Dominican Republic and Cuba, which are always popular, as well as Costa Rica, Haiti, Panama, Colombia, Jamaica, and more.

Transat advantages for wedding couples

By booking a group package with Transat to celebrate their union, couples enjoy an array of advantages:

  • The first 30 wedding guests who book with Transat will not be required to pay a deposit until 90 days after the booking date or 60 days before departure. The wedding couple benefit from a wedding planning trip to the resort. They also get an upgrade to Option Plus on Air Transat (and all the privileges that entails), additional carry-on for the wedding gown, a $500 travel voucher for future vacations, the Price Drop Guarantee and a $100 credit for pre-booked excursions.

Weddings at sea

For a smooth-sailing wedding, celebrating nuptials on board a cruise ship is another great option. There’s nothing to plan—the cruise line charts the course to the big day, creating a personalized ceremony. And with Transat’s new all-in-one cruise packages that include roundtrip flight, transfers and cruise, it’s never been easier for couples to say their vows at sea.
