Hi FutureMrsM! Congratulations on your engagement! With so many options it is difficult to pick a resort. Working with a Destination Wedding Specialist definately is helpful. They will take the time to listen to what you are looking for not only for your group but also for your wedding. It is good to have an idea of what you are looking for; a large resort that offers lots of dining options, activities and nightly entertainment, or a smaller boutique resort that would offer a more intimate experience. Do you want something with a bit of a Mexican Flair or something modern and contemporary? Destination Wedding Travel Agents will have lots of experience and have hopefully been to many resorts so they can help you narrow down your choices based on what works best for your group and what you prefer for your experience there. They will also be the contact for all of your guests and guide them during the booking process. Some agents will help with all of your wedding details as well to ensure that your special day is all that you envision it to be. They have lots of experience so can offer some suggestions and ideas to help you along in that process as well. This time should be fun and exciting for you. A Destination Wedding Specialist will help to alliviate a lot of the stress of planning your travel arrangements and wedding details so that you can enjoy this special time. Good luck!
