She sent out a mailing to all of people interested in going to Jamaica, that included prices, etc. She showed us the mailing she was going to send, but it was nothing like what we thought. It looked like a kindergarten project, she cut out pics of the resort and taped them on the front of the paper. Nothing was straight, and words were abbreviated. Everyone was so confused.

The list she recently sent me said one of my guests had left two messages to book flight, why didn't she return their call no one should have to call twice.

she is always on vacation and out of the office. They need a way to communicate when they are out.
At lease she sent you a list of the people that are going, I dont have any of that information. She doesnt tell me who has booked untikl I ask her. It sounds like we have the same TA, LOL. She tried to tell me that we had to pay for the airfare in full instead of putting down a deposit that I saw on the airlines website. It's like Im telling what she is supposed to do and its nerve wrecking. Yes, she 's always out of the office on travel as well.

My wedding is in St Thomas but we are cruising there with Carnival. We are working directly with a Carnival Personal Vacation Planner who we have worked with in the past as well as a WC in St Thomas. Although our wedding is a little different than you all's, early on we made the decision to work directly with Carnival and we have an awesome PVP who keeps us up to date on all prices changes etc. It almost feels like she doesn't work on commission lol. A few years ago we tried to book a vacay with 2 different TAs who are family friends and decided that their prices were way higher than we could get online etc also like you said they were always vacationing/traveling (sometime together haha). We then found our PVP and feel like we want to do every vacation on Carnival bc we love her so much. I don't ever want to book any vacay with anyone but here. We are even considering cruising for our honeymoon bc we just know how easy it is to book with our PVP and she knows exactly what we want.


Back to the topic I'd find a way to fire her w/o paying that $$$. I am so opposed to paying for horrible customer service. The service is sometime more important than the product in my opinion. Good Luck. Sometimes you have to be a bit of a Bridezilla and stay on her to make sure that what you need gets done.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
