I'd say go with a travel agent, but make sure you do your homework firs!! I've have had 2 terrible ones so far, and am now stuck with the 2nd one. It wasn't until after we had paid our deposits that I started to find out about some way better local agents :(

I agree - use a travel agent! Mine did not charge a fee at all, and she has done so much work for us. I almost feel like I am robbing her :). But honestly - it is not worth the stress of doing it yourself.

I plan to use a travel agent. It makes for a stress free experience for both you and your guests;)

    I didnt think we would need a travel agent since we travel a LOT and rarely if ever use one. I liked to think I was very savvy on the internet in seeking out a great bargain BUT.... my wedding was an exception and there are so many facets that a TA was a must for us!!

     

    We found one that was not only familiar with the resorts we were considering, but who could get us better deals than I could ever imagine- perks for our stay and just a great piece of mind!

    I contacted the Wright Ageny. And she has been extremely helpful, you can read reviews here on BDW. Hope that helps:)

    I am definitely using a TA... It's just so much easier for myself and the guests!! I did not want to get calls, texts, or emails regarding the trip and have to try and arrange travel to my guests... So far having her has been invaluable! My guests are able to call or email her with their questions, plus once they book she contacts me and I'm able to keep an up to date headcount!!

     

    This has enabled me to create the OOT bags and personalized gifts as they book so I don't have a TON of stuff to get ready once it comes to crunch time!!!

    @forevertogether - We are doing the same thing, only I am anxiously waiting for the confirmation email from the resort... AND THEN (since the wedding is still so far out) we have to wait to book our flight.


    I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.
