    Hi there,

    I'm at the very beginning of the planning process, but we're hoping for a Sept./Oct. wedding in the Bahamas. I have a ton of questions about the best place to have the wedding and reception, which place has the most reasonable rates for our guests, etc. and would love advice on any and all of those topics.

    However, right now I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good travel agent that our guests can use to book their travel. Money is definitely an issue for some guests, so we're trying to keep it as affordable as possible. Additionally, I saw that there is a deal out there for free companion airfare to the Bahamas and I was wondering if anyone has taken advantage of this offer for themselves or their guests.

    Thanks in advance! I look forward to meeting all of you.

      Angi,

      Welcome! I just started planning our wedding last month, and this forum has helped me tremendously.

      I initially was using a local travel agent not very experienced in destination weddings as was getting extremely frustrated with her lack of follow-up with my questions. I hold nothing against her; I just don't think weddings are her forte.

        Have you tried contacting one of the TA's on the forum? Click on the banner at the top of the page to submit a request for TA.

        Also, since this site is owned and run by a TA (Tammy host), it is asked that out of respect for her and her team of TA's, that people don't recommend other TA's off this site.

              Thanks so much for the advice! I didn't realize this site was run by TA's. Sorry! But that should make this a ton easier, so lucky me.

                It's a great thing you found this site. I wish I had stumbled upon it a lot sooner than I did. Happy planning!

                  I just got back from being married in the Bahamas. I can probably answer lots of questions for you. I am going to write a full review of everything and everyone shortly that should help you. Keep an eye out.

                    Welcome! Definitely contact a TA on the forum.... their experience with destination weddings is invaluable. Plus, they have had destination weddings of their own. Check out the Bahamas threads.
