A: Yes; I ask for a non-refundable fee of $198 for family and friend groups and $950 for destination weddings. This fee allows me to take on only a limited roster of clients at a time, so I can give all my clients the individual attention they deserve.
A: The sooner the better! For 6-12 months out is a good rule of thumb, and even longer for destination weddings—more like 18-24 months out. Top resorts book up quickly so it’s important to get the ball rolling early, especially if you have your heart set on particular dates.
A: I primarily work with groups anywhere from 4 travelers to 100+, but if you’re looking for a just-for-two escape or romantic honeymoons, go ahead and reach out—there’s a good chance I can help!
Our destination wedding was simply amazing. “Melissa made every part of planning our Cancun destination wedding seamless. She took all of the stress off my plate so I could focus on the fun parts of planning a wedding, like cake tasting!”

Having a travel agent is an absolute must and Melissa is the absolute BEST!! She takes all of the stress, guess work and uncertainty out of the planning and makes you feel relaxed, excited and so confident that you are making the best choice. She is extremely knowledgeable, has been to these resorts and can tell you exactly where you should go based on exactly what you are looking for. Whether it be the best beaches, best pools, most romantic, most group fun, highest quality or best bang for your buck, you will get everything you’re looking for and more with her own personal experiences and touches. She thinks of you and only you and you feel that every step of the way. I wouldn’t plan another trip without her or her expertise!
You will get everything you are looking for and more!
Melissa is amazing! This was our 3rd trip with her and they just keep getting better! I am ready to start planning our next trip and we just got home. She knew exactly what we wanted and helped us every bit of the way. Even with Covid, she had it all figured out. We felt prepared. I am thankful for her. My family and I highly recommend Vacations by Melissa!

“Working with Melissa was very smooth and we appreciated everything she did to prepare us for our trip. We got regular emails with reminders of things to consider upon entering a new country, as well as a thorough PDF with guidance on everything from what to pack, how much to tip, what to expect at our hotels, etc. Melissa helped us make sure my sister's birthday was special! She also helped swiftly re-book us at a new resort when the first one had an incident.”

When someone asks “was using a travel agent worth it? My answer is always- absolutely, Melissa. I chatted with her about what I wanted to do for my 40th birthday celebration. She listened, made some suggestions, helped me pick just the right venue. And then created a helpful little webpage with all the booking info that I could share with family and friends who wanted to join my husband and I. She helped create an absolutely perfect 40th birthday celebration!
