I'm a travel agent and I'm planning my own wedding......

I dont know why you would want to do this on your own totally. I do this 40 hours a week and there's a lot to it!

I recently went to Cancun and Riviera Maya and did a Destination Wedding Tour. Hotels set up their weddings so we could see what each hotel could offer. There's no way as an individual you would be able to aquire this much information.

So dont knock it until you try it! :P

I just got engaged and started planning our wedding. Dreams PV has been the best option so far.

Anything I need to know?

 

And also, I would take recommendations for a travel agent, since you all seem to recommend getting one.

 

Thanks :)

 

 

I'm a travel agent and I'm getting married at Dreams PV 12/11/10

Lia@journeyhouse.com is my email. There are great DW programs thru Delta and Continental that you earn $ for your guests booking. So far that has really worked for brides and that's what I'm doing.

You know, you have some great points about using a TA! It makes me second guess our decision. I just have no idea how to find a TA I trust! I have not used one in about 10 years. Im a crazy deal hunter and love to do it, so I do! But my one big worry is fielding 100's of requests and questions. I think I may need to do a little searching this week. I have a few days off, so it would be a good time.

 

We did decide to send STDs as well. Funny story (although Im sure many of you have experienced this too!) - I was on this site with my fiance sitting next to me, looking at the STD thread. He goes "what the ****? Why are they talking about STDs ?Are we going to have people asking about this because it's Mexico? People are CRAZY!" I thought he was kidding and just kind of went "haha." He says "no. seriously. why?(completely bewildered)" I just about died laughing! ahhh I love all the wedding lingo!

 

I'm a travel agent and I'm planning my wedding at Dreams PV on 12/11/10. I love my job. Just pick a travel agent that does this more than once a year because there is so much to know! But as a general rule, we all try to travel as much as possible so we can be a wealth of information.

Sounds like you have the perfect attitude for an awesome DW. The bonfire on the beach is way cool (one of the best decisions that we made), but I agree that you might check into the weding packages as they are so economical. I bet they would add a bonfire to a beach reception if you talked with the WC.

Happy Monday everyone!


The bonfire was $250 when I just asked and we are adding it. I think it will be really neat and we are going to do it the night before instead of a rehearsal dinner.

I feel your pain.  What are you planning to do? Are you having guests stay at a different resort?  I cant believe they are all sold out.  We are still looking for one room but its for my mom friend.  I cant imagine what I would do if it was family...maybe double or triple book someone?  We are considering having FI's mom and sister, who both have singles, double up for the 3 nights we need the room.  On top of this, Dreams is really not that helpful...sort of rude.  Here we all are bringing in soooo much money for them but they dont have any options?

Ya I tried to persuade Rebeca into letting us do 4 adults in one room since we have one more guest but no rooms available - no go.  She said it's for "security reasons".......... HUH?!?!?!  Don't you mean money-grab reasons?!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
