What Comes First???

Recommended Posts

Hi Gals!!!

 

Question...

 

What comes first? I seriously have no idea were to begin!!! Do I have to decide on the guest list, or book the location first?

 

Any and all suggestions are highly appreciated! I just need a little push in the right direction...I'm feeling overwhelmed and I haven't even done anything yet! :) LOL

 

 

Thanks!

Hello and welcome! I would determine a idea of how many guests you think you are going to have then decide on a wedding location. We decided on our destination based on our guests travel time both our grandmothers are elderly so we did not want long flights with layovers. Then we used this site, trip advisor and stray weddings to help us pick our location. Once you get started things will fall into place. Good luck!

Hi MrsSmigs,

 

The first thing we did was to contact a travel agent to get some rates. I suppose you should have a destination in mind first - we did - but I think that TAs can also help you choose one. We then booked with our TA, and did our guest list - now we're working on STDs and/or invites.

 

Happy Planning!

 

:)

We talked to our TA first and got some rates, then worried about our guest list. We pretty much knew from the get-go that the majority of our guests wouldnt be able to come with. We sent everyone an invite anyway wink.gif

WELCOME!!!

I think deciding on a date is key....once we decided on that we started to narrow down destinations. (That can get really overwhelming becuase of all the resorts out there) but this site is very helpful! ALso, make sure you contact a TA-they are a life saver!

Thank you so much for your replies! it sounds like most of you went through a travel agent. Does the travel agent make all the arrangements for an all inclusive resort, including wedding details? I mean suggesting on certain resorts that might be better for weddings? How did you find your TA's?

 

I always hoped for a very intimate wedding with only my closest and dearest. But my Fiancé however, has a looonnng list of people he'd like to invite. I don’t want to break anyone's piggy bank, but at the same time I don’t want to choose a lesser option because of it. I think staying within in the low $1,000 would be ideal and is reasonable right?

 

From your experience, did you receive better rates through an agent or doing it yourself through the resort?

 

Thanks again for all your help!
