    So the TA from my home area has taken 3 weeks to get back to me with a package for my guests, which I think is too long, also her rates are coming in high and she does not specialize in destination weddings and told me there is a fee for the guests to use her..... How do I go about picking a new TA? Can I have different TA's get me rates and go with the best one? Not sure how it all works, but I am looking for a TA who specializes in destnation weddings, has a website for guests to use, does not charge my guests and can give a good rate for a stay at the Palladium in RM including air..any help would be appreciated...thank you!

      It is hard picking a TA... I had some stress too... I would say go to a few different ones (or call) and get rates/group rates. They should be able to help you out. Don't worry though... three weeks is way too long to not get back to you...

        I got a bunch of quotes from different TA's and picked the one with the lowest rate. If you haven't signed anything or put any deposits down, you aren't really committed to anything, so I'd definitely shop around and find a new TA!

            why not try the ones on this board? There is a banner at the top advertising their services. Tammy Host generously hosts this forum for us so I figure why not give back to her! (wish I had!)

              Hi Ashley,
              I am using a TA through destinationweddings.com I think I got lucky- because some people seem to have a bad experience but she has been super fast at getting back to my emails (I'm talking like 10 minutes) and was helpful in helping me explore the area. Her name is Karyn Fallon and although I am not using their wedsite- it is available. We wanted to have our own and went that route. Check out the website and maybe you can request her- or PM me if you are interested and I will give you her info.

              Having dealt with a very mediocre TA, I'd strongly suggest working with one from this site. The banner in the top right will point you to them. They are specialists in DWs, and they'll be able to find you the best deals around.

                  Hi Ashley,

                  My wedding is in 2 months and there is nothing more that I wish I would have done than to change my TA. I cannot even begin to list the problems I had with her. I recommend using a TA from this site. They know the deal and have experience in DW.

                  Wish I would have found this site a lot sooner!

                  Good luck planning!
