Leia's Wright Travel Agency Review

Recommended Posts

Tammy has done so much for me and my guests, I had to write a separate review...it's long...here it goes:

 

 

To all the newbies still deciding on a TA, pls. don’t look any further. Tammy has been an amazing TA/friend. I highly recommend her company to any bride wanting to have a DW.

 

Just a quick aside, I was a lurker on the forum way before I got engaged. I never joined b/c I never joined any forum before BDW and thought it was kinda weird to chat w/ people online. But, I did love all the ideas and reviews on BDW, I would just search the forum as an “outsider”. I was so obsessed w/ Tammy and Steve’s wedding, which led me to Juan Carlos Tapia…then I was obsessed w/ his work! I also loved Tammy B’s, Sarah’s, Angela’s, Karla V’s and Rebecca’s wedding too. I would show John Juan’s website and we would watch all the slideshows over and over again. Fast forward to 9/11/07…I got engaged and finally “joined” the forum as a member. But it took me a long time to even post b/c I felt awkward and didn’t think anyone would respond to me. Anyways, the very first day I went back to work after I got engaged, I met Tammy and Steve! Talk about fate! I quickly introduced myself…Tammy probably thought I was crazy…but I had to b/c I’ve been following her wedding for almost a whole year! Ironically John and I were just looking at their wedding photos the night before! She convinced me to post in the newbie section…and the rest is history!

 

Anyways, back to my review…We had 87 guests attend our wedding. I would say 95% booked with Tammy. A lot of our family members, especially our aunts and uncles have never traveled outside of the country before. Most are also not internet savvy. They had a gazillion questions for Tammy regarding traveling to Mexico and about Dreams hotel. Sometimes calling her over and over again. She was patient throughout the whole process, answering their questions as they would arise.

 

She was also very flexible w/ the deposits and payments. Let’s just say I had a guest who still owed her money up until the day he left for Cabo! He still got his vouchers for the hotel and transfer w/out a problem! It was a tremendous fete to gather everyones deposit and payments…and for that I must give her a round of applause.

 

Another thing that Tammy did was she was able to get us the best price for Dreams. She beat out all the other internet competitors out there. Which was great b/c my family always wants a “deal”.

 

The few who ended up booking w/ orbitz or cheaptickets were stuck w/ their dates to Cabo. For those who booked thru Tammy, they were able to switch their hotel dates, over and over again, without a problem. I felt so bad about this….since it was an inconvenience for her to change all the paperwork. But she made it happen! Let me give you an example: I initially had M book for 10/22 – 10/26. She then wanted to add her friend, S, in the same room but for the dates 10/23 – 10/26. Then along comes another girl, A, who wanted to stay in their room too from 10/23 – 10/26. A month before their departure date, A, decideds that she wants to stay an extra day (till 10/27) in another room w/ another person! Tammy finagled this reservation and all 4 people did not even have a problem during check in.

 

She also helped me make reservations for John’s grandparents who required 2 handicapped rooms. Dreams accommodated us so much…they gave us the 2 handicapped rooms and a third room (which was a 2 bedroom suite…free upgrade…I definitely think it was b/c we booked thru her) all side by side for John’s parents and his 2 sets of grandparents. Amazing service!

 

Tammy also helped me out through the wedding planning process. If I was unsure about a certain vendor, she would talk to me about it and gave me reassurance about my decision. There was also a mishap w/ my welcome dinner location, which she totally fixed for me.

 

Tammy is truly the best! She works very closely with Dreams, she is honest, organized, funny, and really easy to work with. I highly recommend her services to anyone!!!!!

I'm working on my wedding review....

Leia that was an awesome review and so dead on! wink.gif

 

Our group was not nearly as large as yours but Tammy came through for me and all my guest as well. I myself changed my date on my reservation and had stayed at 3 different places and tammy got it all figured out.

 

My friend and her husband were booked and then they had to back out but then two of my girlfriends were leaving their husbands at home and they hadn't booked yet so tammy was able to switch the reservation out and have my girfriends take the other couple's spot...not to mention the couple who cancelled at the last minute..

 

I think it helps so much that Tammy has all the connections at deams...she really does have pull around there I think...because they really appreciate all the business she sends them.

 

I agree, if you haven't booked a TA yet or plan to just book your trip online by yourself...contact tammy first...I am all about price and saving a penny and I agree with Leia that not one website could beat the price we got...and I am pretty sure I looked at EVERY travel site. Plus it's nice to know that you have flexibility and have someone to work for you if something goes wrong! :)

 

Thanks Tammy!

Ditto! Ditto! Ditto!

If you are still looking for a TA please, please look no further. Tammy is wonderful! I'm sure the other TA's on this forum are just as good but I've only spoken with Tammy.

 

And the craziest thing! She isn't even my "official" TA!!! My TA has gone awol when I needed her most. My resort, Dreams Tulum has been shut down and I am going berserk trying to figure out what to do.

In comes Tammy to the rescue!

She's quick, knows her stuff, and extremely helpful. So of course, some of my guests are now booking through her.

If this forum is a blessing it's all thanks to Tammy!

I really wouldn't have been able to plan a DW without this sounding board and Tammy!

 

thanks again!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
    • My name is Marshall and I’m getting married in Punta Cana in June I am in search of a rabbi could you please help me
