I am from Airdrie and getting married in a few weeks!! SO excited.  Our date in May 10, 2014 at Beach Palace in Cancun.  Everything is pretty much planned other than a few odds and ends that I am finishing up.   We leave May 7th for Cancun and have a group of 27 people joining us :)

Calgary here too... But long engagement in order to allow family and friends time to save $ and join us. Our date isn't until feb 2016!

 

Luckily I'm working with an amazing TA here in Calgary that specializes in coordinating destination weddings and has already been working with the hotel and tour operators to lock in my price just under 2 yrs in advance- so everyone can put down a deposit and then pay off their trips slowly!

 

Haven't been to any bridal shows yet though!

What TA have you been working with? Was she able to negotiate special prices for you? My planning is also going slow because we got engaged last year and we're not getting married until next year! haha at least it'll give people the chance to save too :)

We will have been engaged for 2 yrs by the time the wedding comes too! I am working with Laurielee Rosser (laurielee.ca) and she is amaaaazzzzing! She came highly recommended and now I know why! She was able to negotiate great rates almost 2 yrs ahead of our date! This will allow guests to put down small deposits and then save for our big day! She has relationships with many tour operators that got us great perks too! I highly recommend her. I don't ever use an agent and we travel a lot... But for our wedding? She has been invaluable! I can only imagine she will become even more vital as our date approaches!

thanks for the info! I think a travel agent will really save us many headaches down the road so it's an investment we're willing to make.

I saw your post about you now thinking of changing resorts to a Karisma property.... I'm down there in 3 weeks if you need any info (attending the dress rehearsal).

    • Hello Vernicula - Congratulations on your engagement! I agree with everything MarieSam previously posted. One of the most important things when choosing an agent is there experience and their level of  expertise with destinations and resorts.  All of the Wright Travel agents have years of experience working with wedding groups, we have built excellent relationships with many resorts and we have visited, toured and stayed at many resorts in several different  destinations.  Email is one way of communication so you have everything in writing and can access this a anytime, but phone calls can be just as useful. Our goal is to make sure all of your questions are answered from beginning to end and we are happy to set up a phone call whenever you would like. Some couples prefer to only communicate via email and others also want that reassuring voice with a phone call. We can do whatever works best for each coiple.  Please let us know what questioned

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
