Any Chicago area 2010 brides out there?

Recommended Posts

The ladies who run this forum are destination wedding specialists. They are TA's. I didn't use them, only because I had no clue this site exhisted until after I was all booked up, but I have heard fantastic things about them from other brides.

My experience with destinationwedding.com was not great. The women who was supposed to be my TA barely helped me out. By the time we narrowed down where we wanted to go and emailed her for information, we didn't hear from her for over 2 weeks, so we contacted the resort directly. As much as I had hoped it would work out, it didn't.

 

Since then I have learned that destinationwedding.com uses various TA all over, and you never know who you're going to get. Some people get lucky and make a great contact, for us it was a bust and caused more trouble then help, so be cautious.

 

Good luck :)

I found a local travel agent via the "apple vacations" website, but was trying to see what other options were out there. I am not in love with her yet, so I may switch once we get our date secured.

I also used destinationweddings.com, however as bridetobe1515 mentioned, it can be hit or miss. Destinationweddings.com is basically a referral service and when you register with them, all they do is put you in touch with a TA who pays them for leads. I was lucky and I think I got one of the better TA's. She was fairly responsive and helpful, however when compared to the service that I have seen other brides receive from TA's that they found thru this forum, they all put my TA to shame, lol. If I were to do it again, I would probably pick differently.

Hockeymom - we are thinking of going to Jamaica for our honeymoon.. are you guys staying at that resort or going someplace else? We are thinking of booking at Secrets, Montego Bay that will be opening at the end of this month, it looks awesome!

I think we are also going to Jamaica for our honeymoon and our TA recommended the Secrets resorts as well! Although I'm a little nervous to book our honeymoon there before it opens and we see some reviews of the place
