I am using them, and so far we have not had any major issues. I know that there are negative reviews on this site, but I think everyone has a different experience. There were things that my FI and I were unsure of in the beginning, but we have forged ahead without problems. BTW, we only use them as travel agents, not wedding specialists. I hope this helps.

I am using dw.com too and while I didn't have the best first impression the last 6 months have been fabulous.  I wanted a TA that my guest could trust and one that would be a part of my wedding not just some random person.  And now I have that in my second TA with them.  When I signed up I didn't know what exactly I wanted, but when I got my first one I knew it was not her.

I used them initially and didn't have any problems with them. I only selected to use a local TA because it was just easier because we were on the same time zone and it was just a lot easier to get into consistent contact with her. I didn't have any major complaints about the TA I was working with with destinationweddings.com. She was helpful enough but I only worked with her for a few weeks.

I initially started with them. The TA I was assigned to was kind but a little slow in response. In the end I decided to go with a TA recommended by BDW and she has been fabulous. Quick response is a major factor for me so that's the reason why I sought a different TA.

I have been using DW for about 3 weeks now. They are okay.  By no means great.  I always get nervous when receiving emails from her. She never remembers any of my info(like a free wedding package or an upgraded one), she interupts me alot, and tries to sway me to other resorts.  I just got the room rates from her and after looking online, I can find them cheaper.  I also do not want to put a several thousand dollar deposit on 12 rooms when my guests can easily go on expedia or cheapcarribean and get it much cheaper.  If they do that(which I do not blame them at all), we lose alot of money.  I am debating on whether to just go solo and contact the resort we want to go instead or maybe try and get a BDW TA. I am thinking of going to Excellence Riveria for the wedding and then maybe going to El Dorado Maroma for a couple days for the honeymoon.  I think I may need a travel agent to help me with that (and maybe get some deals). 

This website has been sooo helpful! I am so thankful I found it!

I've been using them for about 5 months and my TA Shelli has been very helpful.  She responds quickly to my emails and double checks everything I send to her before sending it on to the hotel.  I would recommend them, however I know that not all TA's are alike.

    • 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.
