Hey Future Brides!
I would most recommend going through the actual airline ladies! Like sunwing for example!
I went through Sunwing and they offered me the BEST rates!
I tried absolute wedsite, destinationweddings.com and luxe destination weddings but I honestly found them very shady! There were so many mixed reviews I couldn't bring myself to book through ANY OF them!
And I got quotes from iTravel and Redtag but these companies are resellers NOT direct like sunwing so they were charging more - I guess to make a profit.....
So I emailed Sunwing directly and got $1,478 total per person for 7 nights for my November 18, 2014 wedding!
Good luck ladies!
This CAN work, but so can working with a reputable and professional TA that has relationships with both the operators (like Sunwing) and the resorts. There are many fabulous TAs out there who have great relationships and thus get added perks for their bride like free rooms, upgrade bonuses, free wedding events and other added value that an operator or hotel direct won't necessarily offer to one-off brides. We found that the price was identical going direct to negotiate and via our fabulous TA- but she wrangled added perks and free add-ons that are going to add up to almost $9,000!
Bottom line, work with someone you feel comfortable with and who wants to make the whole process as easy as possible! There are lots of options out there- just make sure you go with your gut!
