Wedding planning doesn’t need to be stressful. In fact, it can (and should) be exciting and fun! Our goal is to give our clients a relaxed and enjoyable planning experience and to make this entire process as easy as possible.
With our international and destination clients we understand the challenges of planning from afar, and know the importance of over communicating all of the event details with the entire team. In order to do this effectively, we give our brides access to our incredible suite of online planning tools so that they can stay up to date with the progress of their event from anywhere in the world.
Our goal is that all of our brides feel relaxed and calm from “Yes!” to “I do!” knowing that they have an extraordinary team of planners and designers behind them every step of the way!

Alexa’s love for weddings started young and she has been involved in over 75 weddings at this point in her career! While still in high school she became an assistant to one of Long Island’s top wedding planners which gave her the opportunity to work at prestigious venues like Oheka Castle and The Garden City Hotel. Over the past 10 years Alexa has worked for planning firms of all sizes, and has served in every capacity imaginable from being the right hand woman to a solo planner, to working on a large team in a corporate planning environment.
After earning her BBA in Management and Event Planning from LIM College, Alexa continued working in the fashion industry despite the fact that her heart was really in events. In order to feed her passion for the world of weddings Alexa would freelance for NYC planners on the weekends.Eventually,she was unable to deny that weddings were her true love and accepted a full time position as a wedding planner at the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa. Her depth of knowledge about the industry combined with her eye for fashion makes her a huge asset to our brides and we’re thrilled to have her on the Chancey Charm team.
We’re well versed in the logistics and details of planning a wedding from afar, so we’ve created a planning package for our destination clients that includes all of the support (and more!) that they’ll need as they plan their event.
** Please note, we do require a partnership with a professional travel agent to find the perfect venue and orchestrate all accommodations and guest travel
This package is totally customizable based on the amount of support you need, so be sure to contact us for more information about planning your destination wedding.
We love traveling and have our passports in hand, and our suitcases on standby ready to jet to: Italy, France, Colombia, Iceland, and the Caribbean! We’re also happy to serve clients at destination locations in the United States, such as Key West, Hawaii and more.
And if you need a couple of ideas for amazing places to tie the knot, here’s a list of our ultimate destination wedding venues both at home and abroad:
We are a national team with local roots meaning that we are used to connecting with planners, vendors, and venues outside of the geographic areas where we live and plan! This is a usual part of our business structure so we know what to look or (and what to avoid), as well as how to properly vet the potential vendors and venues that we’ll be working with on your wedding day.
We have created a custom package specific to the needs of destination clients planning an event either at home or abroad. This package provides the specific support, guidance, and tools you’ll need to ensure an enjoyable, stress-free planning process, especially if you’re planning your event from afar.
Absolutely! Design is one of our favorite parts of what we do and we’re thrilled to be able to share this aspect of the planning process with you. It is so much fun to take our clients’ vision and bring it to life in a new space–especially if that space is in a different country! When you add in the local charm of an international destination, our creativity takes over and that’s when we are able to create magic for our clients.
During the design process we’ll work with you to create an overall design scheme that perfectly captures your personal style, and then we’ll infuse those elements throughout your wedding day in order to create a custom feel for your event. We know how to design a beautiful event, but our goal is to help you create an extraordinary experience for your guests by combining beautiful details and sentimental touches from start to finish. That is the key to creating an unforgettable celebration and it’s our ultimate goal for all of our couples.
No, we do not charge by the hour. Due to the unique needs of a destination or international event we will determine the level of support necessary and assess a flat fee at the beginning of the planning process that will include unlimited communication and will not increase as we get closer to the wedding.
For international events, or events where we do not have a local Chancey Charm planner, our clients are responsible for the cost of travel and accommodations for their planner(s).
We have planned destination weddings for clients both domestically as well as internationally. We’ve been in the industry working within a national, and oftentimes global network of professionals for years, so we have the know-how and experience to navigate a new destination with ease.
We also have a pretty long wish list of event locations we’ve saved to our Pinterest boards, so definitely reach out to us about your dream wedding destination because we’re more than up to the challenge!
(For a full list of the venues we have worked at domestically feel free to head to our locations page. And keep scrolling for a full our destination wedding wishlist).
We are happy to plan destination affairs wherever our clients are dreaming of. Locally in Houston, we love The Clubs of Houston Oaks, Hughes Manor, The Grove, The Dunlavy, Station 3, The Farmhouse, The Woodlands Country Club and so many more!! (Keep scrolling for the full list).
And don’t worry if your venue is not on our ever growing list of the event spaces we’ve worked at before. We love the design challenge of planning our client’s dream wedding day in a fresh, new event space.
With a dedication to excellence in mind, our destination wedding team takes on a limited number of weddings each year. The investment for a destination or international wedding varies based on the complexity of your event and the travel involved, but you can expect the following price ranges:
month/day of coordination starts at $3,000 (+ travel & accommodations)
full planning & design starts at $5,000 (+ travel & accommodations)
Click the “I’m Ready to Start Planning” button below to contact us for a complete pricing information.
Once we receive your request, one of our International wedding planners will reach out to you to connect further so that we can discuss the appropriate level of guidance and support needed for your event.
We can’t wait to hear from you and look forward to guiding you on your journey to “I do!” Click the button below right now to get started.
