    Hello Ladies,


    I am new to posting on BDW and I have read some reviews about Destinations Weddings.com and I am now a concerned bride.  I wanted to know if there are any Brides who are getting married soon or next year using Destination Weddings.com to help with their travel plans?  I really feel I should have done some more investigation; hence the reason for my post.  I want to make our destination wedding affordable for our family and friends and want to make sure I get the best service possible.


    Both positive and negative reviews are important, so I look forward to hearing from my Brides to Be!


    Happy planning everyone!

      Congrats on the wedding, where are you getting married?


      I was also leery about some of the reviews I read about DW online but a friend of a friend used then for her destination wedding in Mexico earlier this year and had great things to say about Lisa Johnson so I requested to work with her and have been for the past 2-3 months. I'm getting married in June 2013 at the Riu Palace Mexico and can't say enough about how fantastic Lisa's been.


      She was so quick to get me information on different hotels in my price range and then when she didn't send me info on the Riu, which my fiance and I had looked into on our own a bit she got it to us as soon as we asked. She was also able to get info from the hotel for us and while some people would prefer not to have a middle man, I think it's been so helpful! 


      I had a million questions in the beginning about things and she has always gotten right back to me...even on the weekends and at night. Our communication has died down a bit in the past few weeks just because I haven't had any questions and she's really waiting on me to send in the signed agreement and deposit for the block of rooms but that should be happening in the next week or so. I'm just waiting to get my send the dates to mail out right when my "site" with them goes live so guests can start making travel arrangements.


      I can keep you posted on my guests feedback but so far so good. Feel free to request her when you fill out the application if you do end up using DW, that's what I did and it was not a problem.


      Good luck and happy planning!
