Good Luck in your decision. I think it will work out either way.

When I read what everyone else has already done and how everything has all come together I feel like a bit of a slacker.

I definitely need to start working on our wedding website, so that I can include it on our STD's. I emailed my TA today to see what rates he could get. I just want to decide on which way to go soon so that I can get STD's out soon. That way people can't complain that I didn't give them enough time.

We'd prefer to go through a travel agent to help arrange travel plans, but my FH was told by an agent that she couldn't help us this early since rates haven't been set for next year.

I'm feeling a little bit overwhelmed and want to get started soon - I do special event planning for living and I'm very excited to start planning our wedding :)

We'll probably have about 50 guests - HELP :)

Thanks!!
Yay another chicagoland and 2011 bride!
Welcome to the forum! I also have recently joined and am also a 2011 bride. There is definitely a lot of great info on this site.

Give them a day or two to get back to you. They have responded to me fairly quickly. They were able to give me rates for 2011, but what I received from them was only January to April group rates. So not sure if they have summer rates out yet. I had to wait awhile to get these rates as well. We got engaged in November and at that time they didn't have January/February 2011 rates yet. Then when I emailed them again they did and others had already been booking. It can definitely be very frustrating.

I still haven't signed any kind of group contract as of yet and i have just been working with the miami office wedding coordinators directly. Was wondering for you girls who have allready started this process, do you recommend going through a ta or directly through mp? It seems as though they don't honor group rates or the freebies unless you go through them, but was wondering if it would save my guests some $ if i went through a ta. Is it too late to go through a ta if i sign something with mp?

Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

let me stress it now...go with a goood ta that will listen to you and help you not make things more stressful. We worked with one agency and they were not willing to work with us, so we switched to another one and they have been much better. Yes, we are still doing things we shouldn't be handling, but what u going to do...find a ta that will help you out. Planning will be made easier!!!!

ooH I Rem. When I first started. Use this thread to your advantage!!! And 2008-2009 forum as well.

Search around for a good TA. They cannot do much now bc flights and stuff are not out yet for next year.. Contact MP say you are interested in such and such dates.. have them reserve your date!

I would work on STD.. and if you plan on having a june july aug wedding, Your guests shoudl receive a STD before a year comes. Also, flights come out then and they are at their cheapest.

Good luck!
