    ladies, i'm curious to know who here uses a wedding planner/travel agent to help them arrange for their wedding?? I've pretty much been planning and researching everything on my own here...and then today I went to this place which is a one-stop shop for everything destination wedding related to try on dresses.  I started chatting with the wedding planner there and they were telling me how they can help you with everything including booking travel arrangement for your group and making sure everything goes exactly as you want.  And they don't charge a fee! (well i guess they earn commissions from our group travel) This got me wondering if I should use them instead of trying to do everything myself....especially knowing how frustrating it can sometimes get to try to get a hold of the resort's WC....

        We are definately using a travel agent. But I don't see the need to have a weeding coordinator outside of the resort. We are just using the one the resort provides. And so far it has worked out perfectly. It does take a while to hear back, but doesn't bother me. We just want a simple plan free wedding..

          I did all the bookings myself. Honestly..what can i say. I like doing it. Ilove to plan and have control of every detail. And for the size wedding we are having, it was easy. Plus I am hella anal and agree with the saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself!"


          I negotated a contract with the hotel rather easily. They seemed to perfer that I wasnt a travel agent. They blocked off a set of rooms for us. We do not have to pay for what we don't book.I then set up an interactive website to allow our guests to book their room at their leasure.


          Everyone is booking their own flights.


          The resort is providing us with a WC. I am in corispondance with her a lot.
