      There's a saying "How much money do you need to save to make a bad vacation worthwhile ? "or "If something looks to good to be true-it usually is!"

      Or something along those lines- but really with a destination wedding how much would you have to save to make it worth taking the chance that something will go wrong like not having your room when you arrive ? Or your parents, bridesmaids not having a room ect


      I know it sounds tempting but there is so much at stake to take the chance- of course I am not a betting person !

          Tammy thank you for your advice. But I am completely and utterly confused. My TA is telling me to book my flights on line. My wedding is in May and we have booked 12 rooms with dreams riveria cancun resort. I have booked these rooms with her. She says if we see a price on line that we can deal with then go with. Right now I am not seeing anything from Dallas Fort Worth area for Cancun to be under 450 dollars and this is awful times.

          If I am not supposed to used these sites but my TA tells me to book my flights on line where do I need to go to do this? Do I just need to go straight with American Airlines or Sun country.

          Thank you so much if you get back to me. I am really stressed out. I wish I had found this site much sooner.

            No website will beat a good travel agent. I used one for my wedding with 80 guests. So much easier to deal with someone directly. Saved me a lot of headaches.

              Megan, try AA website, they have flights nonstop DFW to Cancun for $394 including taxes ($300 =$94 taxes). I say booking with the airline directly is reliable. Hope this helps.

                Tammy thanks that is what we are going to go with. I wish I could get it cheaper then that but I guess DFW is pretty pricey to fly out of.

                  I've just started to book directly with the airlines also. I had an issue when I booked with travelocity and their customer service was so not helpful. I've made out so much better either booking directly with the airline or hotel. I've never used a travel agent, but I'm considering using one for my wedding because some of my guests don't travel much and would appreciate being able to talk to someone when booking travel.
