Quick question. I know many of you BDW and B2B have used a TA to help plan your wedding plans. We did the same and we also gave our guests the option to either use our TA or they could search and look for a package on an online website. We would really like them to use our TA because things would be maintained and she could keep track of who booked etc., but at the same time trying to get people to conform and do the same thing can be stressful.
Should we not have given our guests the second option? Should we have just made everyone go through our TA? My fiance feels we can't force people to do anything and we surely can't stop people from searching the internet to find a better deal than even what our TA may be offering.
I'm just wondering if we really should have just told them "we got an agent, this is her info, a deposit is due at this date..." and left it at that.
Can anyone relate? How did you handle the situation?
