    This is crazy! That is what scares me from dealing online. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

      Make sure you file with the Better Business Bureau as well.

      Do you have receipts for the money that is now "missing"?

          While reading your post I felt like crying. I can't believe this is happening to you, I am so sorry. I wish there was something I could do to help.

          Try and put this behind you on your wedding day. It will be a magical day because you are marrying the man that you love.

          Good luck!

            I warned the girls on the knot. One called destinationweddings.com and they didn't admit to doing this

            this was her response from her TA

            I just spoke with our home office at DW and they assured me it is not us. Many sites have an area called destination weddings and can get confused with us…wasn’t us!

              OMG! I am so sorry to hear what you and your guests went through. You mentioned that you found them on Facebook...have you posted this on there as well? This is a terrible thing that anyone has to go through. I hope they get arrested

                Like everyone else, I am terribly sorry to hear that you are going through, especially this close to the wedding. Please let us know if there is anything at all we can do. I defitenly agree with Maura making a forum PSA about this company. That is just plain ridicoulous!!!

                Is there any alternative plan to get your FPIL's to your wedding?

                  I believe that you can file the complaint over the phone and have them send you the report as long as you get the file number.

                  I am sooo sorry this is happening to you

                    Oh man! This SUCKS. You plan a beautiful DW and this stress is not something you should have to deal with. Good luck. I'm so sorry.

                      I have had a TERRIBLE experience with destinationweddings.com......I have found them to be difficult to work with and non-responsive.....it sounds like the issue is with the wholesaler not with destinationweddings.com, but it also doesn't sound like destinationweddings.com has been very helpful eitheir.

                      I cannot believe this - you must feeling like crying...or punching someone.

                      Here is the update:
                      1. I immediately "fired" Destionationweddings.com and today I called and emailed the manager of destinationweddings.com requesting my measly $50 back and letting her know what went down
                      2. FI filed a dispute for the stolen money from his bank account.
                      3. The Resort, Qamea Spa and Resort, have graciously saved my reservations and have been working with me to get it paid off. THIS TIME WE HAVE TO PAY WITH CC! SUCKS! The owner is a CA. lawyer and has been trying to contact the owners. He said that he left messages at their home number!
                      4. My DW Specialist, is all sad because 1. She didnt get her commission and 2. She is dealing with other customers who SHE had go through this TA.
                      5. I learned that the Travel Insurance doesnt really help in this case!
                      6. We will still leave on Thursday. But it really doesnt feel the same. (I could cry AGAIN)
                      7. The DW "Specialist" emailed me today stating that the company HAS not filed for bankrupts... which means they have embezzled our money... And that includes my guest 5K as well!
                      8. We will have to file a police report- I dont know how!!! Im in FREAKIN JAPAN FOR GODS SAKE!!!!!!! I will take any suggestions!

                      So where TF is the TA?
                      Im going to give you all the info I know. I found the B%%%% on Facebook and wanted to send them a message but I am not going to!
                      Here is the Co. Info:
