Hello Everyone!

 

I have to say this is one great website...however I'm still trying to figure things out on here! My fiance and I got engaged Aug 2009, and we were actually supposed to be getting married Aug 28th 2010. I ended up postponing (for a few reasons) largely because our guest list was getting so out of control! I was starting to have anxiety over standing up in front of 250+ people saying my vows, and the center of such large attention. smile41.gifNow that things have settled, we decided the best way to keep it small and intimate was to do a destination wedding.

 

 

We have not picked a specific date yet, but we are hoping to do Jan/Feb 2012 at Moon Palace in Cancun. I have to say I am a little intimidated about the task ahead! I don't even know where/how to start! At this point on the MP website, I do not have the option to submit a request for 2012. I can see it fills up FAST and want to make sure we get the date (and more importantly the time) we want. I ended up contacting them using the "contact us" tab on their site to ask them what I can do to make sure we get the date we want, but I have not heard from them yet! I have heard they can be a little slow at responding, so I will just have to be patient! blink.gif

 

I have to say I am getting some negative feedback about Mexico. My parents are very concerned...to ease some of the nervousness I have been sending them loads of websites/blogs/info that I find on the Internet. They are slowly warming up to it, but the next hurdle will be convincing everyone else its safe too!

 

Thank you all for your postings! Even though I am TERRIBLE at making decisions (especially when I have tons of options), hopefully this website will help me be more proactive! I know I will be looking to you all for all my random rants, raves, questions, and concerns! Thanks in advance! cheesy.gif

UPDATE!

 

I actually got a response from MP this morning! Wow that was pretty darn fast from what I've heard. So I got an email from Jennifer Gamboa,

 the Wedding Sales Assistant, and said this:

 

"Good Day! We are currently not booking weddings for 2012 at the moment. You will need to  check back with us in January. We don't have any waiting list dates and times are subject to availability. Thank you and have a wonderful day!"

 

So looks like early Jan 1st I will be up and trying to book a date on thier site! Wish me luck! ;)

Good luck with the planning! I felt exactly that way in the beginning and slowly things have fallen into place. I am very indecisive and with all the great tips, ideas, and advice, it is hard to decide.

In any case, looking forwar to reading your "random rants, raves, questions, and concerns!"

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
