MIAMI, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Because first impressions matter, Karisma Hotels & Resorts invites newly engaged couples to the Brides Dress Rehearsal, a pre-wedding event that enables brides to see their visions come to life in the very same place that they will say "I do!"
In a recent survey by The Knot, statistics show that brides love inspiration and more than 91 percent of brides begin to plan their weddings online. However, it also concludes that 83 percent of couples still hunger for the personal service element (XOGroupInc.com, 2014). Karisma Hotels & Resorts helps combine both of these needs by providing online and personal experiences for planning a destination wedding.
The Memorable Moments Weddings website is the most comprehensive, easy-to-use site in the destination wedding landscape and now, Karisma Hotels & Resorts has given Travel Agents the option to use it as a sales tool with a new personalized, agency co-branded website program. Karisma's Gourmet Inclusive® Vacation Consultants are vital to help guide couples through the wedding planning process with ease, adding that important personal touch, from coordinating their group travel, exceptional expertise and reserving the very personal experience of a Brides Dress Rehearsal.
From meeting photographers, musicians, and florists to sampling chef-inspired menus, wedding cakes, signature cocktails, and suggested wine pairings, the Brides Dress Rehearsal is a small taste of Karisma's exceptional quality. Whether a bride is choosing from the Karisma Hotels & Resort Memorable Moments Signature Wedding Collection or designing the Gourmet Inclusive® Wedding event that they have always dreamed of from scratch, there are wedding options for every couple when selecting Karisma Hotels & Resorts.
"Our new Gourmet Inclusive Wedding Events™ and Memorable Moments Signature Wedding Collection™ offer even more to love by affording couples the opportunity to design once-in-a-lifetime events that are distinctively theirs," said Faith Wishnie, Director of Wedding Services at Karisma Hotels & Resorts.
Attendees will not only leave with a peace of mind, but with exclusive offers as well! Couples will receive a $500 food and beverage credit*, a free bride & groom stay*, and a free gourmet honeymoon and anniversary package*. The Brides Dress Rehearsal is held periodically throughout the year and priced at $399 per couple for three nights and is combinable with all other promotions!
Karisma Hotels & Resorts cater its product directly to fulfilling a bride's needs exquisitely while looking out for its sales force. Innovative sales and marketing tools are available to support Travel Agents' efforts such as a professionally produced Brides Dress Rehearsal video, ready to use in the agents' marketing collateral, and attractive emails regarding the Brides Dress Rehearsal that are on-demand for the agents' use. In addition, Karisma Hotels & Resorts has created a wide array of other sales and educational tools that help Travel Agents further with their sales and marketing.
