do you use a travel agent/wedding planner?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
