    My FI and I have been engaged since August and have just decided that we definitely want to have a destination wedding! We aren't really even sure where to start. We have decided on a time of year - next December, 2011. Are most of you working with TAs in your hometowns? Or are you working directly with the resorts you have chosen. Any advice will help!

    I've had a chance to read through some of the forums and this seems like the best place to start. Looking forward to planning with the rest of you :)

      Congratulations and welcome! I think the TA thing is a matter of preference. I am not using one but I'd say a good majority of members here are. If you're thinking of going the TA route, there are a number of BDW ones I always read good things about. If you're interested, you can create an inquiry using the banner of the top right hand corner of this site. Hope this helps. Happy planning!

        Another Canadian bride!


        I am using the Canadian TA from this forum (Becky in the vendors section).

        Welcome Manda and happy planning! :-)

            We aren't using a TA. I think it depends on where you plan on going and how big your group is. Congrats and happy planning!

                    Hi Manda!


                    You will not regret having your wedding at the Riviera.

                    My humble opinion is having a local coordinator. They know the hotels, areas, vendors, they can save you a headache J

                    And if you ask me where to do it, Tulum would be a great choice, the place is still wild, and you have excellent places for trashing your dress.

                    Do you have something done already?

                    Good luck!! .... Gonzalo

                      Welcome to the forum!  Use a TA if you'd like to organize travel accommodations for you and your guests, but you'll end up having to work with the resort coordinator no matter if you hire a TA or not.
