My fiance and I are getting married at DRC in August 2013. We are extremely excited but very stressed as well. We are completely oblivious as to how to start planning our destination wedding. We have already booked our date and chose our package with DRC and we are now working on our Save the Date (passports).
We plan on sending out our STD's in the next couple of months and we don't know how to add the travel information in them.
I have read what feels likes 1000s of posts and have learned something from everyone. But one thing I still can't figure out... What is the role of the TA with the wedding planning? Why did you decide or not decide to use one? Do they coordinate with the on-site WC from afar? Will they be better able to negotiate room rates? Did your guests end up using your TA or not??
We are sending out 50 invitations and predicting to have approx. 30 guests. Is it worth using a TA with such a small group? And I understand the resort provides a discount code of 20% off. Does the TA have the same same discount (or more)?
We are open to really good TA referrals.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
P.S. I don't know what we would've done without BDW forum!!!
