Hello,

 

Has anyone used Destinationweddings.com before? I am starting to plan a destination wedding for June 2011 (probably Mexico) and feel overwhelmed with all the choices out there. The site seems very reputable but I am hoping to find some recommendations from this forum.

 

Thanks!

I am using DestinationWeddings.com and they have been great! My TA is Joani Traver - you can specifically request her. She is very responsive and my guests have been very pleased with her. She also got us some of the best rates out there.

 

Congratulations and Good Luck!

Hello SuperKate!

 

Yes, I am using them as well. Things have been very smooth for me! My TA emails me all the time giving me updates and is very helpful.

 

I know some brides have used this company and haven't had good luck. I think it all depends on what TA you get.

 

Good Luck!

I am using DestinationWeddings.com, and my TA is very good. She is very responsive to me and my guest needs. She got the best group rates, cause believe me, I did my own research to ensure we were getting good rates.

 

I too believe it all depends on your TA.

I used them for a few weeks and thought they were horrible. I was assigned to a woman who took forever to get back to me and then made a million excuses, blaming resorts. She kept trying to sell me the company's save the dates, website, etc - which I thought were tacky and looked like something that a child designed. I finally fired her and went to the same resorts directly - and got much better service and felt much more in control of the situation.

I love our TA from destinationweddings.com... she is easy to reach, responds within 24hrs, and has been VERY helpful with our resort. I have a lot of trouble getting contact with the WC, and she has gone up the chain over and over on our behalf.

 

Also as far as pricing, I couldnt find it cheaper myself, and it is totally worth having someone in your corner when your resort (as well reputable as they are supposed to be) jerk you around.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
