History Of BDW Forum

Best Destination Wedding Forum - Announcements in Forum : Forum News & Updates

 

the forum (as it is now) has been around since 2006 and was started by Tammy Wright, who is now a travel agent (check her agency out at Wright Travel Agency - she is the TA to many BDW brides and she's totally fantastic!) and was also a destination bride who got married at Dreams in Cabo.

 

here's her wedding review, she's the ORIGINAL BDW bride!

and here's a link to her beautiful photos:

the forum used to be just for Cabo (see here: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t793 and here: Best Destination Wedding), but she expanded it to encompass many other destinations to help other brides.

When Tammy originally started this forum, she wasn't actually even a travel agent yet. She started it with a few other girls that she'd met on another forum that wanted a better, more informative place to discuss their destination weddings. There were only a handful of girls in the beginning- like 10 or so, but it quickly outgrew the old forum and branched out to be more than just Cabo. I think when I joined in summer '06 there were still only like 50ish members. It's amazing how much this has grown in 2 years!

How many official members are there now? I know not everyone is active so it makes it hard to tell. I can probably list 50 names off the top of my head! LOL

If you go to the front page of the forum, and scroll down almost all the way to the bottom it lists forum statistics. Here's what I just copy/pasted :

this forum has really grown...i tell this story but i remember when there were about 5 members but everyone was too shy to post so i was the only one posting and responding to myself like a crazy person.

 

the reason this forum is so great is because everyone is so supportive of each other and we have a fantastic team of moderators keeping spammers out.

 

we also have an amazing team travel agents on here that have been so knowledgeable about travel regulations, rates, resort reviews. etc.
