Did you choose a local travel agent that specializes in DW, or a well known one?

We also researched ourselves to make sure we are getting the best possible deal... We actually got more affordable room rates on our own, but when I told her, she matched the price.
Good luck!

      Congrats, I got engaged in September after dating my fiance for 14 years so I can relate. I think for the place, choose somewhere with a shorter flight time we didn't really think about that and now I sort of regret it because everyone has to fly like 7 hours to get there.

        ohh my gosh I can relate... WE were so stressed choosing a location.  We wanted our guest to be able to afford so we wanted guests to pay no more then 1500 for all inclusive for a week. So we choose Jamiaca at Couples resort. Can't wait til June 29!! Good luck

          I proposed to my FiancĀ©e back on December 2nd, 2010... now we're trying to figure out how to pick a resort. We want:

           

          Affordable! (1500)

          Beautiful! (I'm a wedding photographer on the side, she's a budding photographer)

          Simple! (cut the fancy options that cost money that we don't need)

           

          What is the best place to see all the different wedding packages compared or get recommendations for resorts like this...?

           

          Thanks!
