    My whole deal with destinationweddings.com is they act like they provide all these things, but really they are no different than any other travel agent- that is just my opinion based on my experience though. We also didnt' have the best agent either....Sounds like V has had some better luck- which is AWESOME!


    Loving married life! <3

      Linds - I'm starting to think I'm in the same boat as you...oh well, nothing I can do now. At least my TA is funny and nice...

          Yeah I thought the same thing about the fruit basket, welcome sign, etc. Just sounds like you get something but its really nothing. And yeah I dont think this TA is really getting anything special just because she works for Destinationweddings. But on the other hand I did try to organize this myself at first and get the RIU to give me group rates and it was near impossible. Plus the first travel agent we tried wasn't going to get us anything extra, even a fruit basket! haha. So, at least someone else is answering everyone's questions and keeping track of how many rooms we will have. I guess its worth not doing it yourself!

                Congrats Celeste! That is super exciting.

                 

                Dana- how did your fitting go? Didn't you have your second fitting - or is it coming up soon?

                 

                I found a dress for my legal ceremony that is now turning into a church ceremony. It meant a ton to my Mom that I got married in a church, so the day before we leave for Mexico we are having a ceremony at my church with our parents only. No one else even knows about it. So...I really wanted a dress that felt somewhat like a wedding dress...I found this dress at Ann Taylor. I had a 30% off coupon so it was very reasonably priced after the discount. Keeping my fingers crossed that it looks as good in person. I always find it so tough to buy stuff online...what do you girls think?

                      Virginia-I love that dress, it is so pretty. My mom wanted us to do the same thing by getting married in a church. We had some issues though and it's not going to happen.

                       

                      My dress fitting is Thursday...keep your fingers crossed!
