    Ok, so I am a major novice at the whole TA thing.  I have started talking to a TA from the site, but I don't want to drive her crazy with a hundred one-question e-mails.  Can you ladies assist me with some advice, suggestions, and questions I should definitely ask a TA?  I am getting married 1-6-12 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  Thanks girls!!!

      I know, and she has been absolutely wonderful and prompt with her responses!  I thought it would be a little bit easier thought to try to get an idea of some FAQ's to ask her instead of sending her a different question with each e-mail!

        I'm in the same boat as you Perry1217. I have spoken to a TA, but it's hard I have so many questions and it seems like such a long time away still too. My TA also told me that we wouldn't be able to book until like MAY!!!! My guests are already starting to asking too. It's really hard because of where we live also... we are way up in northern Ontario and there's only 1 TA in our little town!!!! I'll let you know if I find any info to help us :)

          I agree with Tammy, that the TA is there to answer your questions, so that's always your best bet.  But if you are feeling like you are overwhelming him/her with too many questions, why not just keep a list and send a few questions once a week/month or something?

            I agree with Carly.  Make a list of questions and send them like once every few weeks, then give her several days to respond since she'll be handling a bunch of questions from you at once.

              I'm not even sure what questions to ask half the time! Lol! And Kya - you can always click on the banner at the top to talk to a BDW agent. That's what I did! My TA is Teresa Stauring and she has been wonderful so far!

                  Perry, thank you for pointing out the obvious to me as I have been on this forum for a while and NEVER noticed the darn banner!  You are a life saver!  I think I may need to update my contacts prescription....sheesh....This is exactly what I needed.
