We don't believe that we really need to hire a full out wedding coordinator because we're only planning on having approximately 10 guests.
We have however been looking into destinationweddings.com does anybody have any knowledge on them? From what I gather they can help us with bookings and getting deals for our guests etc. But really, I have no idea how they work and am quickly getting overwhelmed (And we just started the planning!). They claim to need a $50 deposit prior to really doing any legwork. How much do their services cost after this initial $50? I'm sure once the ball gets rolling things will be better but for now we're a little confused.
Any advice on where to being and if anybody has used that dw.com and can let me know if they do what we need it would be great to hear from everyone.
Thank you kindly!
Myles & Sarah
Sarah, where in Canada do you live? I have a travel agent who specializes in DW's and she helped me find reviews and information on the resorts I was interested in and is pretty well organizing all the guests for me.
I can give you her information, or just tell you to find a good travel agent and they will do a lot of the work for you.
