    Well my TA is here and I have my WC in Punta Cana whom I have contact with whenever I have a question. It all depends on your questions and needs!

I have to say, FI is very supportive and very involved. He wants to be apart of every planning step. Which sounds amazing, but in reality it can kinda be a little frustrating. I'm not going to complain though. 

       

      it can be frustrating, but it will all come together smoothly. as far as the WC. I can't speak on that, i was assigned one immediately, like within 48 hours after i booked and she and i talk all the time, either on phone, or email. she always responds to me promptly. and we have planning sessions every ohter month unless i need her sooner.

        That's the travel agent I used, she's absolutely wonderful. Does a lot of details, responds quickly, and even sent me a bunch of free stuff :)


        Thank you for this!

          You are lucky, my FI doesn't get involved, I wish, all he says is: whatever you like I am ok with it.

             That's a great idea! I want to OOT bags but I will probably scratch them if I start to get that shopping bug! I'm trying to limit myself and I'm good right now. How are you making a stamp for your envelopes?

Where are people getting these offsite WC from? I'm assuming that the WC and the TA are two different people that serve two different functions.

              Yes two different people. The TA doesn't really coordinate the wedding itself just travel resort stay things like that. Talking to resort on your behalf. However some TA' s go above and beyond and help in all aspects. My WC was also assigned to me when i booked a date was set for a conference call with an on site coordinator immediately. If you are having on site once your date is set I'm sure they will contact you. If off site you might want to start looking for an off site coordinator. My island isn't very large and when I was thinking of doing off resort there were only about two I believe to choose from.

                hey there! I have the urge to DIY but I'm afraid everything will look like a 3rd grade art project and that's just unacceptable. I can't have that happen. So that's holding me back but... I'm willing to try. I'd employ the help of my bridesmaids but... The ones I'm considering (bc I haven't asked yet) all live very far from me. It's highly unlikely that they are going to be much help. Maybe another post for another board :) but I'm sure I'll figure it out. I think my mom is going to be super involved, and that's great bc she's not really a hands on kind of person.

                 

                That's my biggest fear of it looking like a 3rd grade art project. I can't have that for my wedding! But I want to have personalized items at the wedding also so idk! My mom is involved too but my oldest sister is beyond excited and wants to do everything!
