The flight from Greece headed to Mauritius in 2015! Hello Sunshine! Continuing the breath-taking journey of DWP, we landed on the sizzling island of Mauritius for the 2nd edition of Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress that took place from 14-15th April 2015 in the lavish premises of the LUX* Belle Mare Mauritius.
Each year our vision for DWP manifested itself in the cultural diversity of the attendees. We brought together a collection of highly acclaimed destination wedding planners, designers and artists along with the most awe-inspiring destinations, extravagant venues and hotels and other unique service providers, jewelers and bridal couture designers from across 55 countries. This proved as a catalyst to the formation of a cross-cultural extravaganza.
By this post, we would like to applaud our Host Destination Partner, our venue and cocktail reception partners and all our supporting accomplices that made the enchantment at DWP 2015 occur! How about we diminish the wistfulness by recalling their immaculate execution once more!
The beautiful land of Mauritius was offered as the host destination for the 2015 edition of DWP by the Mauritius Tourism and Promotion Authority who was the Official Host Destination Partner and had the prestigious opening by the then Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius – Mr. Xavier Luc Duval.
Time to go down memory lane and revisit some of the fondest memories from Mauritius and most importantly share with you a checklist for the most recommended vendors and creative partners to work with while planning your dream wedding in Mauritius.
