I think it all depends on if you are getting what you want from the Wedding Coordinators!?!? I was going to work with a TA that wanted me to do all the specifics of the actual wedding with the wedding coordinator directly and I too contacted all the WC at different resorts before we decided... After we decided on a resort (the Iberostar Chain) and the WC (at the Del Mar) wasn't giving us what we wanted we decided to switch TA's (in our case this TA was just lazy and didn't want to do the work)! We figured if our TA is going to be making a hell of a commission (regardless of what b.s. they say that they don't) they should be working for it - not us - we are the ones paying! SOOOOoooo we got a new TA! Our new TA now communicates directly with the WC and doesn't want us to send/talk anything directly with the WC. Certain emails I type up and send to our TA and she forwards them on but our TA is like the intermediate of getting us what we want, keeping us on track, and making sure the wc responds in a timely manor (ummm, all the things the wc wasn't doing for us previously). So I guess it depends if you don't mind doing it and are getting what you want - don't fix something that isn't broken
Do you think your TA should be communicating with the WC?
