I feel a little frustrated and desperately need info before I continue with this business, but wanted to see if anyone here has either known someone to use, or has usedWedding Destinations and Planning | Destination Weddings .com
I am in the process right now of using them, and have already shelled out a grand of a deposit, and at first had wonderful results! You put up a low deposit of $5o that goes toward your final cost. You are then assigned a destination wedding consultant/agent, and she handles getting together everything for you, from flight, travel, and of course resort/wedding info. They can also handle your guests, and give you your own wedding website. Great. Mine was very helpful and responsive in the beginning, and super prompt with any questions I/we had. She even helped me choose a destination! She was cool with me constantly changing my mind, and kept suggesting different places, along with quotes for it all! GREAT! Well, I decided on a location, and she put up a quote, we accepted and put a deposit down. After that, it has been a struggle/pain to get her to contact my resort to get specific information. The final payment is due september 12, but I haven't even talked to the resort wedding planner!!! Photography, flowers, etc. Simply, she responded a week later "most of those details will be handled when you arrive." ?? I'm starting to think she's a glorified travel agent, who doesn't really know/care about wedding details at all! I'm flipping out, how can I get erything together if I don't speak with them myself?!?!
Am I overreacting? I am not going to lose any more of my money if this isn't worth it. Pleeeeeease advise! Thanks!

All in all, magically she replied today, and she got me in the path I wanted to be in, so now I feel relieved!! A little bad for overreacting, but that's exactly why i posted the question here. I wasn't really sure what to expect from them, as I don't do this everyday obviously, nor was it made very clear! So she responded to an email I wrote shortly after posted here, and all is well! I also didn't personally know anyone to have gone through a dw, so it is a little strange. Having these little, important details made out to the very last minute can be a little stressful, so all of this just puts my mind at ease! Thanks again, for all the help! I was worried because I didn't want to go two more months stressing for nothing, when a quick email(s) would have put my curious mind to rest Also, when their website quotes them being "dw specialists" and "dw planners," it made it seem to me that they were something besides a travel agent!! So, now that I have heard from other people, I know what is the norm, and what to expect So thanks to all, and sorry for posting a thread that already existed!! I know for next time.
