    Hello! I've noticed in a couple of profiles that there are other women on this forum planning their DW's from Toronto just like me! I'm in the early stages of planning my DW at Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta next year (January 09) but I have guests coming down from Toronto AND all over the States so I will definitely need a good travel agent. I also set on going the all-inclusive route too because I know my guests will all be a lot happier that way.

    Does any have a travel agent or travel company they're working with (or have worked with in the past) that they love and that's either based out of the Toronto area?

    Thanks!

      Do you really need someone local? If not, I'd suggest Tammy (host) or TA Dina or TA Jennifer ...

          I didn't realize that our host was a TA! There is so much information on this forum and only so many non-work hours in the day! :-)

          I hadn't really considered using someone who wasn't local only because I'm typically a very hands on person...this whole DW planning thing is actually very scary for me, not being able to see the site, do hair trials before, etc. But I'm willing to roll with it all so that I can have the wedding my FI and I really want rather than a "technically" perfect day....and it may work out to be both!

          I will send Tammy an email/private message tomorrow and ask her how this could work. Thank you for the information.

            Please do your research for a TA in great length. I used Pauline Blacoe and I have just signed on for a wedding from hell with her. Dear god spare yourself the headache and find someone competent!

                Wow, what happened with her to make it so terrible and hellish? I know a lot of people that used her, myself included and we all really liked her. I am very curious to know what happened to you and sorry to hear that.

                  The best quote I've gotten so far is from the group specialists at the Flight Centre. I haven't signed on with anyone yet though...I'm waiting to get my quote back from Pauline Blacoe before deciding. After reading this though, I'm not sure if I should work with her...?

                    My ta is Canadian, but in Edmonton. I would not recommend them - I have been unable to contact them since monday. Please be careful who you pick!

                      I didn't use a TA at all just booked through selloffvacations and my hubby is from calgary and all his guestd booked through beachdestinations...i thoughtthey offered the best prices instead of going through a TA which prices were approx $200-$500 more per person so we went the online route
