Iâ€™ve been browsing the forums and getting some wonderful information from everyone. My notebook is full of wonderful ideas and pointers from everyone â€“ so thank you for that!
My Fiance and I have (finally) decided that we will be doing a destination wedding and we are aiming on the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach in 2013. (Just waiting on confirmation of our date we requested!) It took us some debating back and forth on this decision, but we realized in the end its what we wanted and so we are moving forward with it! (yay!)
Iâ€™m planning on working with the WC directly at the hotel as I donâ€™t feel I need a â€˜middle manâ€™ to do that work, and being the perfectionist I am I need to be in control of that (haha). I was hoping to get some input from you all as to how you coordinated your travel arrangements to the hotel. Did you use a travel agent? Did you use a wedding planner? Did you do it yourself? Did you coordinate with the hotel directly? Did you just tell people where the wedding was and have them book on their own?
Iâ€™ve also heard that there are discounts based on the # you have that books at the hotel.. is this something that the hotel does automatically? Or do you have to be booking through a travel agent to negotiate this?
If anyone has some insight or even a travel agent theyâ€™d recommend that they have worked with or are currently working with that would be greatly appreciated. Iâ€™m based in Toronto so it would be helpful if they were in the area, but I am open to anyone with great recommendations on a reputable person to work with. Just want to ensure our party is able to be taken care of properly.
Thank you all in advance for your help!
