CONGRATS on your engagement and chosing the Now Sapphire. I have had a great planning experience with this resort so far....I will surely post a review when I return
I did go with a local travel agent in my town and he was great! He really took over the planning for all travel arrangements for my guests. In my Save the Dates I put my travel agents info and let people know that if they didn't already have a travel planner, they could use my guy.
My agent was able to negotiate better rates then what the resort offered at the time and he also held a block of rooms for me which I don't think I would have been able to do myself. I just personally went with a travel agent because I knew that I did not want to be the 'go to person' for everyone's questions aboout travel and stuff.
I'm sure which ever you choose will work out fine. Happy Planning!!!!

We are quite a ways away from our wedding (we're shooting for july 2013) so we are in the absolute beginning of our wedding planning.
One thing we're already both having trouble deciding on is should we go through a Travel Agent, or just go through AAA.
Which have you gone through? Which do you recommend i.e. pros/cons?
We've been talknig to a travel agent since early January of this year, but he seems to be slow on the response-sde of communication, which if Im going to have 40 people traveling to a different country and he is supposed to be "taking care" of everything for my guests...then that does not give me a feeling of relief.
I've just heard that travel agents can "negotiate" better deals with resorts as opposed to going through AAA.
Any and all helpful types/information will be GREATLY apprecaited!
Thanks and best regards
