    Hi Guys,

     

    Did anybody book their wedding through a travel agent? If so how long did it take for them to get back to you with a date?

     

    Thank You

     

    Gemma

    @Mrswaltontobe Hi!

     

    I booked mine through the resort initially before I booked my trip with my TA.  I needed to change the date and we thought it would be better for me to contact the resort to do this since I already had communication with them, but after a couple frustrating misunderstanings, my travel agent stepped in and started to call and email the resort.  It took her almost a week to get in touch with them but we finally got the confirmation email saying it was all sorted and confirming our date.

    @Mrswaltontobe I gave the travel agent a rough idea of the dates we wanted at the resort, then once we chose dates and got quotes, the travel agent made initial contact with the resort to book the wedding date, and they dealt with me directly after that, although my travel agent did step in again when they tried to change my ceremony location.

    I'm getting married at Coba. My package includes one set of live music. Since I don't want it during the ceremony, and we can't have it during dinner, could I use them in the Lobby bar before dinner, or do they already have music playing?

    Thanks, @Tlseege!

     

    I think I remember someone here saying that they elected to have the wedding cake served poolside after the dinner, has anyone seen that?

     

    I really don't know what to do about the cake vs. dessert and small cake vs upgrade to dessert and big cake issue.

     

    And I have no idea why the Portofino menu wasn't included in the menus I received, and they won't tell me, I've asked three times!
