Hello Everyone! Im so happy to have found this site. It is very helpful. Ive been to a bunch of DW for my friends and I was a maid of honor for my sister who married in Cancun. But I had no clue how overwhelming it is to actually plan one for yourself! Im lost as to where to begin. I feel like im going in circles...Im getting married APRIL 17, 2015!!!! and I already picked the resort, went to a site inspection and absolutely loved it! I made the deposit and Im comfirmed. I also did the STDs...they are actually in the making. And thats where Im at right now. Im concerned about a TA. I was about to go with destinationweddings.com but found horrible reviews on the net...so IDK what to do. Should I use one? do they charge crazy prices? Im at zero in knowledge when it comes to that. any insite would help please...and YAY for 2015 BRIDES!!!!

Congrats on the upcoming wedding!

 

I am also getting married in Punta Cana in 2015. I am using Patty from Wright Travel (the agency affiliated with this site). She has been amazing to work with! Very quick to answer emails and very helpful! I would recommend using Patty to anyone! They are totally free of charge too!

Congrats! It is a lot of work! I didn't realize how overwhelming it was going to be. We used a local travel agent. She's great! And she isn't charging us anything. I think the TA's get a percentage from how many people book? We sent out an email to everyone and they contact her to book their trips. So that takes a bit if stress out of it. We are also getting married in April 2015 in Punta Cana.
Happy planning!

Congrats and welcome to BDW!! You'll find tons of information here that will be a big help!!

 

You sound like you might be in the US? If so, Wright Travel is definitely the TA for you to get in touch with. They are DW specialists and have access to all different perks for groups depending on where you're going! You can get in touch with them right from this site!

 

Good luck and happy planning!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I'm using a TA, she's great. There aren't any fees, and the best part is she taking care of all the booking details for our guests so that's a huge weight off me.

I have wedding brain 24/7, too! It's crazy!


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.
