      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 am using Destinationweddings.com  So far, so good.  My TA is Robyn, and I have to say, she has been very helpful and great to deal with.

              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.
