I'm a newbie here! So, I'm 90% sure that I'm going to stick with a T&C DW. I've been all over the place (in my head) since getting engaged - but I have a good feeling about this one.
It seems that despite announcing a DW - a lot of relatives & friends are coming. I so didn't expect that!
I've narrowed down my choices to The Palms & The Somerset. From what I've been reading, it's probably just the toss of a coin as the resorts are similar & next door to each other. I've also looked through Tropical Imagining's pictures (who I'll be contacting once everything is planned) and my gut is telling me The Palms. But, I can probably be swayed still at this point.
I enjoyed reading through all the previous posts and like the option that The Sands is nearby to offer my guests an alternative to the expense of the Palms or Somerset.
The flight cost makes me nervous, but hoping that once JetBlue starts flying out of JFK in February, it'll help with the price. Most of us are coming from the NY/NJ area anyway - so we can easily fly out of JFK, Newark or Philly - whichever is cheapest.
Experienced brides, do you recommend going through a travel agent or contacting the resort(s) directly? I don't know any good travel agents, so that will be another dilema.
So, what am I missing??? I never expected planning a DW would be this difficult or stressful. Thank God for this site - it's helping tremendously!
