    I'm planning a wedding for April 2011, we've picked out destination at least, we're going to do it at Iberostar Varadero. I have no idea HOW to actually book my wedding and feel like this is the biggest hurdle. Do I go to a local travel agent, or should I email a website like redtag.ca (which is who we usually book with for trips we've done)?? We were in Varadero last month and went to the Iberostar....they took us on a tour and allowed us to sit and have some drinks, so I feel good about booking here since we've seen it in person.

    Can someone give me some suggestions about how to take this first step and actually book our wedding? Thank you!!

    congrats and welcome!

    starting with a travel agent would be your best bet, they are super helpful and can help work with you to plan a wedding and trip within your budget.

    if you are more of a self planner, you could check with the resort directly for more info. they usually have a wedding coordinator who can get you info on what you need to do...

      Congratulations. I second the idea of going to a travel agent. I don't know what I would have done without my TA. They seem to also get answers back much quicker than if you work with the resort directly.

        I was pretty much in the same boat. No experience what so ever. So I ended up getting a Travel Agent. And it was the best decision I've made!

                Echo the others with TA. Resort WC's are sometimes hard to get. Good luck and welcome!
