    Hi! We have been looking at several resorts and narrowed down to 7... we are hoping to narrow down to 3-4 choices soon! After a bit of research, we decided to just make a trip there.

    My difficulty is...we only want to make one trip to keep cost down. Should we do it now to help make our selection...or should we wait until we have everything booked and just go for one final site inspection? What are the positive and negatives of either one?

    Another thing we are wonder is... is it worth it to hire an outside wedding planner to deal with all the communications with the resort coordinators. Sounds like a lot of the negative experience is due to some resort coordintor's services.

    Wedding planning is tough! I'm so glad there's a whole community of you here :)

      i think if you can go now and actually look at a few places would be ideal. you can then talk to the wedding planner when you're down there and get an idea of what to expect.

      58 people booked...and counting!!!

        First and foremost, pick a date/month for your wedding. Then schedule a trip (ideally for 7 - 10 days) around the time period you would like to get married to get an idea for the weather.

        Gather information on all the venues on your short list and schedule appointments with the coordinators beforehand.

        One trip should be enough if you have done all the legwork. DO NOT BOOK until you return from your scouting trip!!! Take some time to think things through before putting down a deposit since it is likely non-refundable. I am speaking from personal experience and hope this helps.

        Happy Planning!!!
