Romance 2.0

Planning a wedding or honeymoon? You’re in expert hands with LeGrow's Travel! Our Destination Wedding specialists, many with first-hand familiarity, are helping hundreds of love birds have the best experience possible.

While a romantic beach holiday remains the top form of vacay for Canadian couples, romantic travel twists run the gamut, according to our counsellors.

“Destination weddings and honeymoons continue to gain in popularity, but now we’re seeing new variations on the mainstream romantic getaway,” says Shelby Parsons, LeGrow’s Travel counsellor, Village Mall, St. John’s.

For example, there are the pre-honeymoon proposal getaways. Looking for new and romantic ways to pop the big question? “Some adults-only resorts like Sandals even offer an engagement concierge service to help couples bring that fantasy moment to life,” says Shelby.

Not to be left out, those celebrating a milestone anniversary can enjoy an in-resort renewal-of-vows celebration, with as much – or as little – pomp and ceremony.  “I’ve even had clients organize the ceremony as a romantic surprise for their spouse,” says Shelby. “How lovely is that?”
