Destinationweddings.com Planners

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I recently got engaged (March 2010) and we are hoping to have the ceremony in fall 2011 in one of these three locations: Turks and Caicos, Aruba, or Riviera Maya.

 

Has anyone used or currently using "destinationweddings.com" to assist in planning your special day? I'm looking for feedback/reviews/testimonials not located on their website.

 

I'll appreciate any information you may have for these planners as well as any other destination wedding planners.

They cannot provide much more than you can find yourself on tripadvisor and booking your own trip via expedia or another travel site. I did use one of their TAs and they were nothing but a quote mill for me and a headache. That is just my personal experience.

I am actually using them right now for my wedding in January. I find that they are very helpful and can in some instances get discounted group rates. I do think they are a little biased towards certain resorts but if one of those resorts is where you want to go, then you can get a great deal.

 

I am getting married at El Dorado Royale and would not have looked at this option had it not been for the help of DW. I thought it was out of my price range until I saw the group rates and the various deals for the bridge and groom.

 

If you have lots of time and can do all the research yourself, then your probably fine on your own - but it saved me time by having help from someone who listened to what was important to me and provided a list of resorts that had those options.

 

Good luck!!

Thank you for your thoughts and congratulations on your recent nuptials! I just read through the "destinationweddings.com" thread and the thread "avoid luxe destination weddings." This is a great forum and quite helpful for me in just the past 24 hours!

Thank you, I found it. Along with the "avoid luxe..." thread. This whole process is slightly overwhelming. So to answer your question/respond to your statement, we are still deciding on what we're looking for. But hopefully we'll have a location and top resorts selected by July.

I believe your resort is on our list for review. I'd loved to see pics from your ceremony and reception. Were you able to do a site visit?

 

BTW, Congratulations

Congratulations! Welcome to the forum! I personally looked into them, but changed my mind after I realized I could do most of the research myself and use a local TA to assist with my booking. Good Luck & Happy Planning!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
