    Hi everybody... I have been looking online for some time now and I just cant find what I am looking for. Do any of you know of a Travel agent in IL, Chicago Suburbs that will deal with DW? I am just having the worst time getting the ball rolling.

        Make that another Illinois bride that had a helluva time. I went out of state as well out of sheer necessity. I know Tammy or one of the other lovely TA's here on the forum can help ya.

            I am working with Nita Haas from Viking Travel in Westmont, IL. She has done other destination wedding arrangements and has been a great help to me so far, but I am sure any of the other recommended TAs on the board can be just as helpful.

              I see that you're in Sycamore~ I'm near Rockford and used Veronika at EZ Travel. She did a great job. Let me know if you want her info.

                Yep all of our communication was email with maybe 1 or 2 phone calls. No problems at all.

                  Hi There! First of all, Congratulations!

                  For the weddings I've traveled for we've used a couple different places.

                  here are a couple out of chicago I have found were very helpful!

                  i wouldnt recommend windy city travel only because they were overpriced and wouldnt return my phone calls. i was so ticked that i just decided to not use a TA, and everything has been going perfectly fine without one.
