Although most of my time is spent assisting couples with the planning details of weddings and vow renewal celebrations, I occasionally get to plan other types of corporate and social events. As a matter of fact, at the writing of this post, I am in conference planning mode, coordinating the space logistics for a statewide organization’s annual conference. With my conference planning clients, I get the opportunity to travel and explore event destinations all over the state of Texas, and sometimes I get lucky enough to have my event planning worlds overlap. Working in South Padre Island, Texas this week is providing just the opportunity for that to happen.
As a wedding and event planner, based in Missouri City, Texas, I am always on the lookout for great event destinations, wedding ideas, and inspirations for my engaged couples. Many of those couples consider the possibility of a destination wedding and honeymoon. Did you know that 24% of brides and grooms choose to have destination weddings and that 55% of couples choose a tropical location for a honeymoon destination. Many couples love the idea but are concerned about the cost to their family and friends. Worry no more and get to know South Padre Island, Texas, a little slice of event destination heaven right around the corner.
Yes, I know, being in the Houston – Missouri City area, we do have the closer island of Galveston, Texas right next door, but sometimes it’s nice to venture out and feel like you are really getting away, without the passport and financial headache that often comes with tropical, resort like travel. South Padre Island is a hop, skip and easy drive or flight, so it provides an affordable option for those wanting an event destination without the travel expense and headache.
We have made quite a number of friends down here and can provide some great contacts to help make your destination wedding a dream come true. Planning a corporate or social function that requires a relaxed event destination? We can help with that too. The folks in the know are pretty friendly and I must give a huge shout out to my friends at The Pearl South Padre and the South Padre Island Convention and Visitors Bureau. They provide some great event assistance and incentives and I am sure if you give them the chance, they will roll out the red carpet for you and your guests, as well.
