  • Janice is wonderful to work with! She helped make our wedding a great memory to cherish, not only for us, but for our families as well. She helped us select a venue in Jamaica so we could privatize and truely personalize our wedding. Even though she has many clients, I never felt she was to busy for me. Janice always made herself available to us...even at 11:30pm! She approaches each wedding as if it were her own, going the extra mile every day we worked together. I know she will be a friend for life! I would highly recommend working with Janice to help plan your wedding, anniversay or special event.

  • When my fiancé and I decided to have a destination wedding I knew that we would need assistance. I did some research and came across destination wedding store. After speaking to Janice I contacted her a fed days later to inform Janice that we would like to use her services and it was one of the best decisions that we made in regards to wedding planning. From the very beginning Janice was on point. Janice gave us a few suggestions as to where to have our wedding and once we decided on Jamaica she wasted no time getting things in order. Janice was with us every step of the way helping us with invitations, flowers, photographers, decorations, etc. Even when I dealing with some unfortunate personal issues Janice was right there with words of encouragement. While in Jamaica when issues arises and Janice was contacted things were handled right away. Janice was not only our wedding planner I consider her a friend. I highly recommend her services. You won't regret it.

  • Janice is the absolute BEST wedding planner and was a remarkable support system throughout the entire wedding planning process. Under the guidance of Destination Wedding Store, my husband and I were able to plan and experience the wedding of our dreams at Paradisus La Perla in Rivieria Maya, Mexico. Our wedding weekend included a rehearsal dinner (sushi-style), welcome fiesta (private pool party), an amazing ceremony and reception and a farewell brunch. Our guest were amazed. My husband, our 40 guest of intimate family and friends and I, felt the 4 day wedding celebration was "mejor que un sueno", better than a dream. Janice and her team worked diligently for over a year to assist with selecting and booking the venue, all design elements including save the dates, invitations, programs, menu cards, wedding guest welcome gift bags, floral arrangements, bridesmaid coordination, fashion recommendations and so much more. The list goes on and on and on. As an added bonus, Ja... Read more

  • I had the privilege of having Janice plan my destination wedding at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas for my husband and I, along with 15 family members. With everyone coming in from all parts of the country, we needed to orchestrate their travel plans to coincide with the pre wedding activities. She helped me navigate what is one of the most important days of my life, and everything was perfect!! After we had our AMAZING day, Janice arranged for our " reception" at The Palms Restaurant in Caesar's Palace. There are no words!!!!! Later that night Janice, who went above and beyond, had made my husband Rob and I reservations for our first dinner alone as a married couple at the Voodoo Louge at the Rio Hotel. Just amazing!!! The next morning we left for 10 days at the Four Seasons Wailea, Maui. Maui was breath taking. Janice and her team at Destination WeddingStore took care of everything I needed or wanted and didnt know I did!!! I would and have recommended them to any and everyone!! Janice ... Read more

  • Our experience with Destination wedding store was one that my husband and I will forever be grateful. Another couple recommended and referred us to destination wedding store five months after our engagement. At that point, all we knew was that we wanted a destination wedding & that was it. First, being that we both have very busy careers, neither one of us could dedicate the time required to plan a beautiful wedding. We were able to begin planning right away via phone calls and e-mails. There was always someone available to answer our questions and destination wedding store was there every step of the way. Our guests also had access to our planner to arrange their travel and stay at the resort. Together with our planner, we were able to celebrate our love surrounded by our closest family and friends at a premium all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

  • Please know that Janice will help you create the wedding you always dreamed of. My husband & I got married in Dreams Punta Cana & Spa in Punta Cana, DR last year. I found destination wedding store while I was searching online for ideas. From the moment I spoke to Janice Shortier, all my worries & stress were truly gone. Her services were a blessing and we truly felt as if she was part of the family but with all the time in the world to help us plan our wedding. I am not even kidding! She also helped my guests (60 people) with their travel booking & definitely found the best resort deals for them with extra bonuses. Janice is truly an amazing person & definitely loves what she does. I honestly feel terrible for writing this review a year later but it has been quite busy for us since we moved to another state, etc. Today I made it part of my to do list because we will never forget how thankful we are for all her help. Also, her wonderful services need to be known & recognized ever... Read more

  • Destination wedding Store exceeded all my expectations. I was always able to speak to Janice whenever I wanted. Her creativity was especially appreciated, since it is a skill I personally lack. Her years in the industry are so obvious when dealing with vendors. She was able to get better deals than I would have ever thought. Because of this, we were able to do so much more than we thought we could afford. I have recommended Destination Wedding Store to my friends and have had 3 friends use them as well!

  • If you are having a destination wedding, you need to work with Janice! My fiancee and I always knew that we were going to do a destination wedding, so last January, I started to plan it myself. What I realized is that resorts and hotels are slow to respond and as an individual, you have little leverage. That's where Janice came in. I heard about Janice from a co-worker who was thinking about doing a destination wedding. Although they ultimately remained stateside, they still highly recommended Janice from the initial contact with her and also through another friend that worked with Janice. Honestly, the money that we spent to use Janice was the best money that we spent for the entire wedding. She did so much for us that we felt like her services should have cost so much more. Not only did we have an awesome wedding, but also found a friend in Janice. What Janice did for us: 1. Pre-marriage counseling - When my fiance and I had a little miscommunication in the wedding ...

  • Relentless work of our wedding planner/travel agent My fiancée and I were first introduced to wedding planner, Janice of DestinationWeddingStore.com, by a close friend in June of 2008. Our friend heard about Janice’s work from a fabulous destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico that she had planned the previous year. Pleased to hear of all the positive feedback about her excellent work, we decided to give her a call to help plan our wedding. After one phone call, we were sold! Once we told Janice what we envisioned for the big day, she used her creative instincts and ideas to plan our dream wedding in Cancun, Mexico for May 9, 2009. Janice has a great eye; her attention to detail is truly amazing: from the wedding colors to the wedding attire; from invitations to decorations, even slight details that we would have never thought of! She followed up with all planning and kept us in the loop, through phone calls and emails on a daily basis. From early in the morning to late hour... Read more

  • The Destination Wedding Store is wonderful and truly helped save my sanity while we were planning our recent wedding in Aruba! Janice is someone who genuinely loves what she does and it shows. No matter what issue came up, she was quick to expertly resolve (with a smile)! In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable about weddings, Janice really did go the extra mile. She gave loads of tips to maximize our budget as well as unique "fun" ideas...(which came in handy on those days when we needed to lighten the mood because my family was stressing me out!) I would highly recommend her services from start to finish for anyone planning a destination wedding.

  • If your planning to have a destination wedding, Janice @ Destination Wedding Store, will take care of all the details of your wedding. Besides making me an extremely happy and relaxed bride, Janice left my guest wishing she was their personal travel agent. She made it so easy, that my friends think that my husband and I should renew our vows every year!
