RE; Travel agents or just directly with the travel company

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


My wedding is still a year and a half out but I wanted to ask all of you out there about your thoughts.


Have most of you out there got yourself a travel agent?  Or..... what do you think of the idea of booking directly through the actual travel company using their group rate of course (i.e. AIR CANADA VACATIONS, SUNWING, WESTJET, AIR TRANSAT).


Just curious if any of you desination brides have just gone directly through a reservation agent at the actual travel company.  Is this even allowed? lol


After reading some posts, I feel like going through a third party, things tend to get lost in translation (for example, many brides were not told by there travel agents that they are able to get a trip for free after a certain number of people booked).


Anyway, thanks for the suggestions in advance :)

not all travel agencies are the same.  it is really important to work with one that has experience with destination weddings.


You might want to try one of the BDW Travel Agents.  We Specialize in Destination weddings.  You can contact us HERE!


If you do not know what TA you want to work with, just fill out the form Contact a Destination Wedding Specialist HERE and I will direct you to the best agent that fits your needs.


Although, we (wright travel) do not work directly with canadian brides, there are two agencies on here that do.


You can read some of our reviews here: Wright Travel Agency ~ Destination Wedding Specialist Reviews HERE and find the other agency reviews as well.

Hi Julia,


Great question! At Sunwing Weddings, you can go directly through us as the tour operator to book your wedding! There is a little more work involved as you manage your own group, but you do cut out the third party! This is typical booking through most tour operators.


If you are looking for a more 'hands-off' experience, then a travel agent is the way to go. Someone like LUXE Destination Weddings would be able to provide you with a full-service. It's all about personal preference!


Happy planning!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
